Help!! I Need Advice On Selling My Home

Services for Real Estate Pros with Small Business USA

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.

Right, in general, I've always heard it sells faster without the listing agent there.  It interferes w/ ability of buyer to bond w/ house and it's a distraction.

In my area with over 15,000 Realtors I hate to say it but some are dumber that a rock and I always show up to answer questions that the buyers Realtor would have no idea on how to answer. So if you trust that all questions concerning the home can be answered correctly there is not a reason to interfere with the showing however, sellers do expect a certain amount of service when you take on a listing.
