Home Selling Tips | Access Discussed

Some may outgrow their house and find them too small to live in. Some may have to relocate for a job transfer. Others may have a personal relationship triggers like marriage or break-up. Regardless of the reason, it's inevitable for some of us to sell our house.

Let's talk about one key element in this decision-making process that will increase the possibility of you selling your house in a timely manner and at a price you desire. There are four elements to a quality listing. At the top of the list is Access, followed by Condition, Financing, and Price (to be discussed in detail in a different post). There are many levels of access that you can provide to your agent so that he or she can show your home.

Here are five levels of access that you can give to buyers, along with a brief description:

Lockbox on the Door – this allows buyers the ability to see the home as soon as they are aware of the listing, or at their convenience.

Providing a Key to the Home – although the buyer’s agent may need to stop by an office to pick up the key, there is little delay in being able to show the home.

Open Access with a Phone Call – the seller allows showings with just a phone call’s notice.

By Appointment Only (example: 48-Hour Notice) – Many buyers who are relocating for a new career or promotion start working in that area prior to purchasing their home. They often like to take advantage of free time during business hours (such as their lunch break) to view potential homes. Because of this, they may not be able to plan their availability far in advance or may be unable to wait 48 hours to see the house.

Limited Access (example: the home is only available on Mondays or Tuesdays at 2 pm or for only a couple of hours a day) – This is the most difficult way to be able to show your house to potential buyers.

Now that you're aware how important Access is, let us know what you think and other big rocks you may have encountered while selling your house by leaving a comment down below.
