The Ins and Outs of Showing Property

(Continued)

Syndicated —

Lock boxes can also enable buyers and their agents to pop in and out quickly of a property, without having to time their visit to an open house or arrange for a private showing. This is an easy way for buyers to get up to speed quickly on the types of properties available.

Advice for Buyers and Sellers

Buyers and their agents should be mindful of the home-viewing process and always be respectful of the seller and the listing agent's time.

Sellers who are serious about getting their home sold should be ready for anything. Always keep your home tidy and as close to staged condition as possible. Private showings may be inconvenient - but they may also lead to a sale.
