Access Granted!! Show Your Home With Confidence
Are you listing your home this spring or summer? As a seller, you will be making many important decisions including how much home access to give potential buyers.
When marketing your home for sale, an important part of the listing process is allowing buyers to see your property. As a general rule, you should give potential buyers enough access to your house to allow them to make an informed decision on the purchase. Of course, as a seller, you will want as much balance between providing access and protecting your privacy and security.
The best practice is to schedule open houses or private showings with your real estate agent who can vet potential buyers to make sure they are serious about purchasing and not just lookie-loos. Other ways of access include putting a lock box on the door for licensed real estate agents to come through with their buyers by appointment only or limited access, meaning only on certain days and times.
Ultimately the level of access you want to provide buyers with is a personal decision. It will depend on your individual circumstances and preference but if you want to maximize the sale of your house, you can’t limit potential buyers’ access. If your home is not accessible, it could cost you by sitting on the market longer.
