Selling Your Home? – Inconvenience Yourself

Posted by Ambergate Realty Advisors on Thursday, September 15th, 2016 at 11:08am.

If Ambergate Advisors were to represent you as a home seller, apart from guiding you toward selecting the best asking price, we would create full market exposure for your home using the most efficient advertising methods. We would also protect you from time wasters as much as possible and recognize that in most cases, we are not just selling your house, but your home.

For example: we would discourage home showings before a decent hour in the morning, most likely 9.00 am and not after a certain time in the evening ie 7.00 pm. You may have children to prepare for bed, or perhaps you just need to relax after a hard day at work. We also typically ask for 3 hours-notice to give you time to prepare your home for marketing, tidy up, or change your plans for the day.

However, it’s very important that you are prepared for a good amount of inconvenience. In a crowded market it’s crucial for you to stay as flexible as possible when you receive a request to have your home shown.

Be aware that buyers are going to tour your home alongside several others on the same day. If we offer you a time window (usually about an hour) please take it. If you come back to us and suggest we move the showing by half an hour, an hour, or even to another day, this is not helpful to buyers.

If you won’t allow your home to be shown during the time window requested, it’s possible your home will be passed over.

We know of many cases where home sellers were unsuccessful in selling their homes in good time, simply because they made the process about them and their needs, not those of home buyers. Motivated buyers won’t wait or be that flexible in terms of when they see your house. They will simply buy someone else’s home.

Respectfully, your lifestyle and that of your family is going to have to change during the sales and marketing process. We want to make that process as short as possible. Ideally it's best that we get your home sold during the honeymoon period.
