  • If possible, do not be present when the property is being shown.
  • Securely pen up pets, or take them with you.

  • Collect the business cards of real estate professionals who preview and show your home and pass them on to me.
  • Let me know of any change in the property’s condition that would need to be disclosed
    to potential buyers.
  • Be available to review with me the list price and condition of your property if it has not
    sold in a reasonable period of time.

It is important for a property to make the best possible impression on prospective buyers. The following can interfere with a buyer’s appreciation of a property:


  • Clutter
  • Lawn needs mowing and edging
  • Untrimmed hedges and shrubs
  • Dead and dying plants
  • Grease or oil spots on the driveway
  • Peeling paint
  • Anything that looks old or worn


  • Worn carpets and drapes
  • Soiled windows, kitchen, baths
  • Clutter
  • Pet and smoking odors
  • Peeling paint, smudges or marks on walls

A comparatively small investment in time, money and effort to remove these distractions can lead to stronger offers from buyers.
