Safely showing a property is important!
This one way of showing my listings is working well. The buyer's agent makes an appointment with me either online, Showing Time, text, email, or phone.
The agent calls when they arrive at the home. I “tour” it while they are on the phone.
I can point out all features and directly answer the agent/buyers' questions like the wellhead location, the new electric panel, recent appliance updates, remote control devices, land boundaries, the extra pellet stove in the garage behind the tractor.
How many gallons per minute is the well yield? What's the roof's age? And information on the septic.
What items may or may not stay with the house... is that trampoline included?
And finding out the buyer's needs, I can suggest other uses for the property.
Showing this way is a perfect solution for agents who only introduce buyers to properties; not only have they never met the buyers, they, themselves, have never seen the property.
These agents are compensated only for introducing the buyer to the property. No further incentive if a property is sold or not.
And if there is interest and another family member wants to see the home before a final decision, we can arrange that return appointment immediately. The listing agent has access to so much more information than what’s just in the MLS.
Another benefit is that if there is a question for the seller, I can immediately find that info with a quick call or text. And a bonus...this is the perfect time to give the seller feedback.
Showing this way is a safe solution to limiting the number of people in the house. The seller and pets are out, and they know when the appointment is complete and can immediately return home.
Safe, efficient showing The Rome Way!
