I Tour New Listings!

So what?  Why do I care if you tour new listings or not?   Good question. Well, if you are a seller, you have an incredible advantage when you list your house with a company or office where the agents actually go out and physically walk through the newly listed home.  Most of these agents who tour are the top producers and most active in the office and the area at large. This means that your home automatically gets more exposure to agents with active buyers right off the bat.

Moreover, These agents fill out response cards to help the seller get a clear idea of what things may or may not need to be touched up in order to help the house sell quicker and for more.  Do all agents go on tour?  No,  only the most active from what I have discerned.  Do all offices tour new listings?  No, not very many actually do this anymore from what I understand. I make it a strong effort to tour all new listings at my office weekly and have found that it helps me see inventory and sometimes I see first hand the "perfect" house for one of my buyer clients.  Yes, we agents get new listings on the computer by looking at the MLS, but nothing shows better than feet on the floor and being there in person to appreciate the home.    

 

Therefore, it's another Value point for my buyer and sellers, and a key component for my personal slogan:  "More Value for your Move".

Tours and caravans are not as common as they were pre-Internet.  But if your company has enough agents, a tour of new listings should be a weekly event.

Completely agree Scott, nothing compares to actually viewing & experiencing listings in the flesh. I also preview listings for my buyers so I can add my two cents on top of what they have viewed online.
