I have this conundrum, and rather than toy around with theory I thought I'd bring it right to the experts.
True or false:
The seller's agent should NOT be present during showings.
Here's what was shared by a selling agent:
"(having the seller's agent present) is a huge turnoff for people. They aren't accustomed to it, and it makes buyers and agents uncomfortable."
I've been house hunting over the past months and I've actually NEVER visited a house without seeing the seller's agent present. I was a little shocked by this realtor's comment. If it matters, the realtor sells property in West Hartford CT.
PS. I need a realtor in Derby, CT to sell a house I've decided not to flip. It's too much to take on at this time.
