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.

What a way to start

What a way to start off for 2019! Thank you Jim and your team of experts on providing financing for my new home! While this may not be the first home I have purchased, it was the smoothest! From the first time we met, I knew I made the right choice. You explained the process and you kept your word on staying in touch with me and answering all my questions. Your knowledge and patience is to be admired. The professionalism you displayed by showing up on time to the closing, when no one else did, AND you stayed to the end. Thank you for your support. I will gladly recommend you to anyone I know. A great experience and a new friend! Thank you again Jim, for everything.
