Should I be present when buyers view my house?

If you’re thinking about selling your house, it’s understandable that you want to be involved in the process. After all, you’ve likely invested a lot of time, money, and emotion into your home. However, when it comes to showing your house to potential buyers, it’s best to take a step back and let your real estate agent handle things.

At Jones Hollow Realty Group, we strongly advise against homeowners being present when buyers view their house. Why? For one, it makes buyers uncomfortable. They may feel like they can’t speak freely or ask questions that could be perceived as negative. Additionally, as the homeowner, you have an emotional attachment to the property. If a potential buyer makes a comment that you don’t agree with, you may be tempted to argue or defend your choices. This can be a major turn-off for buyers, potentially costing you offers.

It’s important to remember that when buyers are viewing your house, they’re trying to imagine themselves living there. They want to envision their own belongings in the space, and they want to get a feel for the home’s potential. Having the homeowner present can be a distraction and make it harder for buyers to get a clear sense of the property.

So, what should you do instead? When you work with a reputable real estate agent, you can trust that they have the expertise and experience to handle showings on their own. They know how to showcase your home in the best possible light, and they can answer any questions that buyers may have. By letting your agent handle the showings, you can focus on preparing your home for sale and leave the rest to the professionals.

At Jones Hollow Realty Group, we believe that selling your home should be a positive, stress-free experience. By taking a hands-off approach to showings, you can increase your chances of receiving offers and ensure that your home is presented in the best possible light.
