Proper planning saves and pays!

Proper planning saves and pays!


Prior preparation to view homes with clients ensures a more efficient and successful outcome. When all set and organized, things that may happen outside your scope of control are better handled.


Plan ahead by:

  • Checking the weather report in your local area
  • Allowing adequate time to travel one area to the next
  • Notifying clients ahead of time if the weather is questionable


Meeting clients at the office first is an opportunity to get all paperwork under way including making copies of the lender letter. I also recommend viewing a list of homes online showing location, features and amenities.


While there you can also:

  • Print out MLS sheets of properties to view
  • Get to know their wants and needs further
  • Create an environment of sincere helpfulness 


Allow plenty of time to view each home. Clients may wish to view a few more in any area and may spend more time in homes that maintain interest. Also, as a courtesy, if you are more than 10 minutes late, call the listing agent. 


Planning ahead streamlines over-the-road driving, saving time and resources plus it adds to your professionalism. At the end of the home tour, perhaps you'll go back to the office, ready to write up a contract for your clients!


Proper planning pays in oh-so many ways. Happy sales all!

I agree with being prepared.  However I don't print sheets for the homes anymore unless the buyers request it.  I email them to them ahead of time and take my ipad with the pdfs on there.  Very few clients actually want the paper copies anymore.

Being thorough the first time definitely saves time. True in any business.

I so agree with you about planning. I simply cannot imagine showing homes without a good plan.
