Showing vacant homes without air conditioning on in the summer can be a horrible experience for buyers as well as agents when temperatures soar and a house has been closed up. I have been advising my sellers to put the air on. In my humble opinion it is just as bad showing a hot stuffy home that is unkempt and dirty home. If the buyers are uncomfortable when they walk in the home they are not going to buy it. Sellers should have their air conditioning on in their homes even if the home is unoccupied . It not only is uncomfortable but the home gets an odor.
Here on the East Coast summer is approaching and so is the hot hot weather. I have called my sellers of unoccupied homes and condo units to inform them of this . What do you do ? Showing vacant homes without air conditioning on in the summer can be unhealthy.
How do you as an agent feel when showing a home,when the air inside the home is hotter then the air outside in a heat wave? How do you think the buyer reacts to this situation ?
