Accessibility For Buyers

Accessibility for buyers is very important as soon as your home hits the multi-list systems. Having restricted times for showings drastically limits your buyer pool. Watch this video to find out why.

Accessability!  Day 16
Let’s talk about accessibility for buyers to view your home.

As soon as your home hits the multi-List system, it is automatically sent to hundreds of websites. Buyers are frequenting those sites and may have searches set up by their agent, so they see it immediately. This means that the moment your house hits the market, it’s being viewed by prospective buyers and more than likely, you will have showings fairly quickly. You need to be ready for it.

When buyers are ready and they want to see your home, you really need to let them. You do not want to miss the initial showings on your property. Having restricted times for showings drastically limits your buyer pool. Because most of the time, the buyer is looking at other houses when they see your house, and is making a decision quickly and will not revisit your home later.

Recently, I’ve listed a house for a police officer that worked nights. He made arrangements during the day to sleep elsewhere, so that his house could be shown. This turned out to be a very brief, but worthwhile inconvenience. His house went under contract in less than a week because buyers had adequate access to his home.

Another time, I listed a home with shift workers that were very adamant that the showings would have to work around their unusual schedule. In the first two weeks, we missed six buyers that never revisited the property after they initially asked to see the home. Unfortunately, that home took over six months to sell.

Now, with all that said, it’s important that you know I want to do what you want to do. If you give me specific limited times that the house can be shown and that is it, that’s perfectly okay, it’s your home. But I just want you to be aware it’s very likely that this will limit otherwise serious buyers, and almost certain to lengthen the time your home is on the market.

In our current market, serious buyers are making decisions super quick. And I would love for you to get top dollar for your home in the least amount of time. If you’re thinking of making a move and are ready to discuss the next step, or would like to see a detailed marketing plan, please reach out to me. We want to set you up for selling success.
