William's Blog...with a smile!


That buyer you turned away...

That buyer who wanted to see your home and you said no...may have been the one.

Short notice showings are a real pain.

BUT, they are any ties the real serious ones

Some are in need of a home right now and are not real fussy.

Some think twice about saying no.

Make sure you r home is ready to see at any moment.

Sometimes short notice showings are part of the price of admission when it comes to selling a house. You have to let them in if you want them to buy.

They won't buy it if they can't see it, will they William?  Putting your house on the market in show-ready condition and making it easily accessible is a key to getting it sold quickly.

Good morning again William. This is a really good post because it points out the consequences of declining a showing.

I ledt my clients know we will try for next day appointments, but there will be some that NEED today.

Great advice Bill! I always ask for a reasonable time-frame to show houses. 24 hours just doesn't work for many buyers who show up on weekends and leave the following Monday or in and out in a day.
