This is a blog written by Ohio Real Estate Agents Liz and Bill Spear however this advice is applicable for any market especially here in Southwest Louisiana! 

Today we had a record high of 99 degrees breaking the record set of 97 in 1977!!  Its HOT!!

With the exception of most foreclosures that have no utilities, buyers need to feel comfortable when viewing a home and also feel how well the cooling system works!

SunsPlease Adjust Your Thermostat Before Showings!

Summertime is just around the corner, but some days when you step outside you'd think it was already here!  Hot Hot Hot!!  If your home is on the market, something you might want to consider is your thermostat temperature before showings.

You may be more tolerant to heat than most folks and keep your thermostat on a higher temperature to keep your energy bill down, and that's a great thing to do UNTIL someone is scheduled to visit your home.

When the buyer is focused more on how uncomfortable they are and not the features of your home, you can quickly lose a potential buyer's interest.  And we've seen the same during the winter when a home is abnormally cold!

So consider adjusting your thermostat before showings to make sure the home is comfortable!

Great point to many seller's forget to adjust the thermostat and the customer's are not comfortable.

Good luck and success.

Hi, Marilyn.   Nice Blog, and so relevant as the summer heat arrives.

     Saving Energy is a noble objective (and perhaps a financial necessity in these trying times).   But if a Seller leaves the thermostat on 85 degrees, then the Buyers are going to be miserable.    Chill out!

Marilyn, Thanks for the reblog!  I remember well the Louisiana heat and humidity growing up in Leesville.  It can be pretty bad, so keeping the thermostat to a comfortable range is even more critical for your summers than our area even.
