Help Buyers Get the Most Out of a Showing

A lot of work goes into finding the properties that suit your buyers, from location and number of bedrooms, to an open kitchen and a good place for a garden. But once you’ve identified some options, it’s house showings that will help your clients identify whether what looks good on paper meets their needs in real life. Here are a few tips for ensuring that your buyers get the most out of home showings.

  • Be prepared. Make sure you’ve done your research on the listing so you can answer your clients’ questions and provide helpful information during the tour. And of course, make sure the property is within their budget! The more prepared and knowledgeable you are, the more smoothly the showing will go, and the more professional and trustworthy you’ll appear to buyers.
  • Help buyers be effective. You do this all the time, but for buyers, viewing a home may be a new experience. You can guide them through house hunting basics (like taking notes, opening cabinets and cupboards, etc.) to ensure that they don’t walk away from a showing feeling like they don’t have enough information to make a decision.
  • Follow up. It’s a good idea to sit down and talk with buyers immediately after the showings if possible. This allows you to hear their feedback and update your game plan if necessary. After showings, you can also email your clients with the listings for the homes you viewed that day, for their reference.

As a buyer’s guide to the home buying process, you have the power to make house hunting easier! With the right preparation, you can ensure that your buyers get the most out of showings, so they can find the home of their dreams.

I was referred to Jim

I was referred to Jim by Gary Hall my realtor. I was told that he was the best guy to go to and I would be in good hands. That couldn’t of been more true.
From the very first time I spoke with Jim, it was very apparent he was there to help me. From calls after hours, on the weekends, Jim was keeping me in the loop the whole time. He was so understanding of the stress people are under when applying for a home loan. He gave me my options and explained the pros and cons to each one. He clearly was not just out to make a quick buck. He made it seem like I was just talking to a good friend. Jim is a person that truly cares about the people behind the application he is looking at.
I couldn’t have asked for a better person to help me. I hope I will never need a home loan again as I believe I found my forever home. But if I do I will go right back to Jim no questions asked.
