5 Sure Fire Ways to Sabotage the Showing of Your Home

By
Real Estate Agent with Weichert Realtors - Manalapan - Marlboro

You think you'd prefer to stay?  You have no sense of urgency?  You are hoping to still be on the market when every last buyer has purchased?  Good... keep reading!

Sometimes when showing a home I can't help but think some sellers have to be intentionally trying to sabotage their sale!  Some of the things they do seem so obvious that I can't imagine them possibly being so ignorant as to think their behavior won't be an impediment toward a potential buyer developing interest in their home!

Here's a collection of some of my favorites.  Enjoy!

 

Top 5, Sure Fire, Ways to Sabotage the Showing of Your Home

Number 5 - Break out a nice, big hunk of catfish.  Fry it up about a minute before we are scheduled to arrive.  Mmmmmm, mmmmm good! Serve it up with a nice Chianti.

 

 

 

 

dog poop

 

 

 

Number 4 - Walk the dog.... in the livingroom!  Nothing says home more than a big steaming pile of puppy poop!  And for you cat lovers... Litterboxes are overrated!

Number 3 - Don't get up!  Stay right where you are.  Don't you dare let the potential buyers of your home interrupt your phone call!  We all want to know what your no good, dirty, low down turd-of-a-husband was up to last night!

And finally...

 

The Number 1, sure fire way to sabotage the sale of your home....

 

 

Show just how "green" you can be!  Save the planet...  Don't Flush!

BRAVO to YOU Marie!  Agree with you completely!  Too many listing agents lack conviction... conviction on price, conviction on the process and probably most importantly, conviction on their ethics to always remember that servicing the seller is most important.

Ken - Been there done that!!Snow Shoes

How about this one?

Shovelling snow is for Sissies!  Much more fulfulling when your buyer has to fight the frozen tundra to get to the front door!

Isn't it funny, what seems like common sense is not common to other people? Never assume anything! I think if I had sellers like that, I'd resign and tell them I couldn't serve their needs.
