How Often Should Your Realtor Show Your Home?
If you have been trying to sell your home for a while, you might be wondering why your real estate agent won't show your home.
After all, you hired her or him to get your home sold, so why don't you ever come home to find a business card with your Realtor's name on it? Or anybody else's for that matter!
We Must Show Your Home To Sell It
First and foremost, you chose to hire a real estate company to sell your home. And we must show your home to sell it.
The real estate agent might or might not be a close friend of yours, but you are paying thousands of dollars for a service and you should demand the best effort from your real estate professionals.
I actually had a client tell me that the previous real estate agent said she wouldn't show the house until changes were made. Huh?
If you ever have the type of conversation where your agent says she won't show your home, you need to cancel the listing agreement for the sake of both parties.
But you have to wonder, why would somebody who gets paid to sell a home not show it on a regular basis?
How Often We Should Show Your Home
When you interview agents for the job of selling your home, make sure you are prepared to find out how often they plan to show your home.
They should be able to tell you, and show you, the liquidity in the real estate market for homes like yours. This will tell you how often you should plan on seeing it shown.
For example, if 17 homes per month are selling, then well priced, well marketed homes should get at least 17 buyers through it during the first month, right?
And there is a cause and effect relationship between online visitors and onsite visitors, so ask to see the weekly results from their real estate internet marketing campaigns.
Maybe your agent isn't showing your home because he or she doesn't have anybody to whom to show it!
Maybe their passive internet marketing campaign is failing and nobody is viewing your home online anymore. I find this to be true for most listings that have been on the market for more than 30 days.
If you would like to know how often we will show your home, just drop me a note and we can schedule a time to review the liquidity and showing expectations for when you decide to sell your home.
