Long Island Agent Showing or Agent Previewing | What's The Difference?

What's the Difference Between Agent Showing and Agent Previewing?

 

 

It's an easy question for us to answer being in the Real Estate business, but sometimes a client is confused by the different terms.

Previewing Agent

There can be different scenarios why an agent may Preview a home.  Some agents like to preview a property for their client before they bring them to a listing to make sure it is what their client is looking for. This way they are not wasting their buyers time showing them property that will not work for their buyer. Sometimes the client is out of town and the agent Previews homes and chooses the ones that may match their buyers criteria before sending them the photos and description and scheduling an appointment. Sometimes an agent wants to see what the competition is selling before giving their seller client a value of their home. And, there are times when agents preview to get an idea of what is on the market for a future client. This is known as Agent Previews.  At an agent preview, the buyer does not tour the home. 

 

Showing Agent

An Agent Showing is a Licensed Real Estate Agent or Realtor® taking their client with them to see the home together.  Buyers tour the home with their agent, and can ask any questions they may have. They may show one home that can be perfect for their buyer, or show many homes while sorting out which is going to the best choice for their client. Many times the Showing Agent works for the buyer, so it's a good recommendation for the seller not to be home during the home tour.

Good morning, Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 (sheila)....in 1978, when I was newly licensed, it was common practice to preview every new home that hit the market....and certainly to preview every home before showing it or even discussing it with a potential client (customer in those days!!!!)

Barbara, Previewing every home used to be very common. Sellers understood what it meant then.

Nina, That's a smart way to know what the competition is offering.

Scott, Relocation buyers need all the help they can get, and your previewing with videos is a great tool to use.

Good explanation of the two terms, clients often mis-understand the difference.

Hello Sheila and Larry - it's good to share definitions of commonly used real estate terms with clients who may be unaccustomed to industry language.  That's expected since they don't "speak" it everyday.

That is a great explanation and I have not previewed much since I feel that the clients should choose what they like and don't like even though I often have a pretty good idea of what they will actually want to purchase.

Michael, True, they don't speak the Real Estate language everyday and may think these 2 terms are the same!

Brian, Previewing used to be done more often in the past, and is not done so much these days...
