Five things we request of Showing agents

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Centre Realtors

I work with both buyers and sellers unlike some agents who only list homes so I understand the problems Buyer's agent have. Sometimes we show homes all day and buyers come late for an appointment or take too much time at one house and we are running late for the next appointment. Sometimes the buyers look at the house from the out side and say they do not want to go in. The sellers may be waiting in the house to let you in . But there are some things we should do when showing houses

Here are some things that I request of showing agents.

1. If you are not going to show up, please call and cancel the appointment.

2. If you are running late please call and inform the  agent's office or appointment center.

3. Please tell your buyers to watch the children so that they are not running all over the house on their own.

4.Leave the house  the way you found it when you arrived.If lights are on leave them on, unless told otherwise.

5.Make sure the house is locked when you leave.Also check the basement door and back door.

Thanks for the list. It can be difficult when buyers are late or decide at the last minute to cancel showings. I know how frustrating it is to a seller. It is interesting that clients feel the need to blame agents. But sometimes when sellers are anxious about whether their home will sell and how quickly they need someone to blame and we are the best scapegoat.

Gita, that's not too much to ask of any agent.  Great Points!  I find so many of our vacant listings not locked or windows open.

Cal, It can be difficult to call but we should call the office if we are running late.

Kay, I was at a vacannt listing yesterday and there were 3 showings recently and no one had left a card.

Being a new agent these are helpful and seemingly comment sense strategies, but when you new sometimes you don't think. thanks for sharing.
