Showing instructions are one of the prime factors involved with listing a property. Homeowners are very concerned about showings the safety or lack thereof. It’s actually very frightening to most of them.

Having a system in place and a carved in stone protocol will have a significant influence on helping the homeowner decide whether to list now or wait until after the virus has passed.

Our team members have a system in place, and it does not waiver. It begins with the signing of a Covid-19 document by the agent, buyers and, at the right time, the home inspector. The document must be in the listing agent’s hand 2 hours before the showing is scheduled.  That’s our rule.

Once the buyers and their agent arrive at the property, the must all have a mask and gloves. We provide gloves, if they do not have any.

The showings are all accompanied. There is no lockbox. We arrive early and open everything. Every door, cabinet, drawer and appliance would be opened. The buyers and their agent are guided through the property ONE AT A TIME.

If there are two buyers and one agent, that’s three showings of the home at that one appointment. When all of the showings are finished, we disinfect everything that was touched, including handrails and Newell posts.  The listing agent pays attention to every move made by each buyer.

Sellers feel very comfortable with the attention that’s given to each showing. It’s time consuming, for sure, but we want the listings. We do this for vacant homes, too.

Just a thought for the moment…..

Knowing how devoted you are to quality marketing, I would expect nothing less when it comes to care during the showing of homes.

Michael Jacobs they DO appreciate it and in this Covid-19 state of affairs, they love it.... and they probably would wait to list until the virus dies off..... will it ever???  who knows.... the way we show property NOW may be the way we list in the future, too.... unless everyone in the country is tested, no one knows who is asymptomatic....  that's frightening.... can't let down our guard.

Brian England I like that nice compliment!!!!! thanks, Brian....

Kathy Streib there's a right way and many ways that have sections eliminated.... and thank you....that's a nice compliment....

Will Hamm thanks..... there's nothing difficult about anything they do.... it's just steps to take to make sure every showing is done with care and control.... when everyone leaves, the place is disinfected as the agent makes his/her way to the front door...

Morning Barbara.

Gloves are getting easy to find, masks are another story.  You can bet once this has calmed down, I'm going to stock up, on them

Hi Barbara:

That's a great process to have in place and no doubt sellers appreciate it. Yep, it's a bit more time consuming but well worth everyone being safe. Do you require pre-approval letters from buyers before showings? We are seeing that more often here now before homes can be shown.

And we also have a Covid-19 form from our State AOR that we are supposed to use for anyone entering a property.

Jeff

Grant Schneider homeowners like what we do.... they don't hesitate to list.... and buyer agents know they will not see the property if they don't follow our protocol...

Jeff Dowler, CRS a pre-approval letter in hand is required....even BEFORE covid-19....
