Make sure your home is easy to show!
To get your home sold quickly, it’s important that other agents in the area show it to as many potential buyers as possible. The first thing a good agent will do when working with buyers is talk to the buyer and learn what kind of home they are looking for. Then the agent will search all the available homes for those most closely matching what the buyer wants. With today's access to the internet, the buyers also have a list of homes that they want to see.
 
Many times the buyers only have a short period of time to look at homes. The agent will show those houses that are easiest to gain access to first. All homes on the market have “lock boxes” on them. The lock box is a device which holds a key to the home, that only qualified local agents can access.  
 
For best results never say no to a showing. In my personal experience, every time I said no to a showing, that particular buyer never came back for a showing at a later date.
 
 
It’s best if you can leave when the agent and buyer arrive to see your home. Buyers won’t feel comfortable with you there. The buyers don't feel free to take time to really look at all the great features of your home. The feel they have to hurry because they feel they are imposing upon you.
