One of the oldest questions in the book "Should a home seller leave when a buyer is coming to see the home?" Now, we as Realtors know the answer, at least most of us. But, I met a seller who did not. Over the summer my relocation buyer and I went to see a new listing. We had an appointment, showed up on time and to our surprise, Mr. Seller was home.
As we tried to look at the home, he was in our way every minute. As my buyer opened a closet door he would shut. Turn on a light, he turned it off. Then there he was with a story about everything. From what is wrong, why he is moving and what he did not like about the house. He killed his own sale faster than a lightning bolt.
Fast forward 3 months I get a call. It is Mr. Seller, his listing has expired and he remembered me from the showing. Could I come list his home. We met yesterday. My first question was about him being at the showings. I said it is not recommended that the seller be there. I explained in a soft manner why. He said he asked his previous agent and they did not say it was not recommended. That there was the issue and a leading cause why his home did not sell.
He agreed to let me handle the showing.
Perhaps the MOST IMPORTANT message is to share with every consumer that my philosophy is simple, provide more personal and professional service to guide my clients through each step of the buying or selling process. All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest. Those that hire me, find a dedication like no other.
