I wish my buyers would Drive By houses First.

Real Estate Agent with Smart Green Realty

Blame the Internet and our busy lives. Buyers don't like to drive by the houses before we make appointments. But it sure would save us some time. Colorado realtor Mary Douglas recently described the result: We arrive for an appointment and the buyers know just by looking that they don't want to see the inside. Douglas asked: Should we the realtors drive by first? It definitely helps. However, ultimately, how can we know how the buyers will react to a house? Sure, we can tell that the street might have a lot of traffic, or that the block looks a little shabby....but, there can be other factors that make it worth showing. It is really up to the buyers...unless we have so many potential homes to show them that we need to rule some out.
