Spring, Cypress, Tomball, and The Woodlands Realtors-Who Attends Your Open House?

According to zillow.com there are 5 types of people who frequent  Sunday open houses.

Pre-Qualified Prospective Home Buyers:   Home loan pre-qualified buyers are best for sellers.  They know how much they can afford, they know what they want!

Neighbors:  Comparing the home to theirs, or just plain nosey!

Buying Agents:  Agents searching for the perfect home for their clients.  If the property suits their buyers needs then this is a plus for the home seller!

Losing Agents:  This is the agent who had been interviewed at one time or another and wants to check out what may have been the reason the seller didn’t choose them.  They also scope out the home to see if the seller took their advice on tips to make the house more appealing.

Previous Owners or Family Members:  Wouldn’t you love to see the home you grew up in as a child?  Visit the home your grandmother owned? I certainly would!  Just keep in mind it may be a little sentimental and unsettling if the home is not what your clients expected it to be!

Keep the showing stress free, stand your ground, and keep it professional.  Good Luck!
