What is the best thing you can do during showings of your house?
Make yourself scarce.
Ever shopped in a store where the employees clearly work on commission and almost seem to lurk in the background, watching your every move, while you shop? Many buyers say that the feel very uncomfortable looking at a home when the owners are present. They don't take the time to check out the pantry, or the closet space, they just try to get out as soon as they can.
This scenario doesn't really put you in the buying mood, does it?
It can be uncomfortable exploring a home when you also feel like you’re being watched. Making buyers feel comfortable when looking for a home is absolutely essential.

You carefully selected and hired a Realtor® to sell your house – now is the time to step back and let him or her do just that!
