Hello, my fabulous readers! Today, let’s dive into a question that many sellers often ponder:

“Can I be present when a potential buyer is viewing my home?”

I’ve had countless clients ask me this, and I totally get it. No one knows your home like you do, and who better to give the tour, right? Well, hold on just a moment, because there’s a bit more to it than meets the eye.

Its a love story… and you’re not the main character

You see, when it comes to selling your home, it’s all about creating that magical, emotional connection with potential buyers. We want them to walk through the door and immediately start imagining how their lives will fit into your space. Picture them whipping up breakfast in the kitchen, envisioning their clothes neatly tucked away in the closets, and hosting Thanksgiving in the dining room. It’s like setting the stage for a love story, and you’re the director.

Now, Here’s The Catch…

It’s tough for buyers to get lost in their daydreams and fall head over heels for your home when the current owners are present. It can feel a bit like intruding on someone else’s space, which might make them rush through the showing without giving your property the thorough review it deserves. We want them to linger, explore, and, well, fall in love.

Zip It!

But that’s not the only reason you might want to consider stepping out during showings. You know how in casual conversation, you might mention something that you find completely benign, but a potential buyer could interpret as a red flag? Like your bagpipe enthusiast neighbour – to you, they’re just a quirky character next door, but to a potential buyer, they might see it as a deal-breaker. We want to avoid those misunderstandings and keep the focus on the beauty of your home.

So, while you technically can be present during showings, I must strongly recommend against it. Let me handle the process, ensuring your property’s best foot forward. I’m here to create that perfect atmosphere for buyers to truly see themselves living in your space. It’s all about fostering a neutral, pressure-free environment that lets them fall head over heels in love with your home.
