The market is picking up and there are more buyers looking at homes. You will be showing more houses than usual. Please remember to be courteous to the sellers and the listing agent. Here are a few items to refresh your memory.
Check showing instructions.
Respect showing instructions.
Make sure all the lights are turned off in a home when you leave.
Be sure to double check all doors before leaving – even doors you may not have opened.
Leave the home as you found it. If you open blinds to allow light while you are showing, be sure to return them as you found them.
If you think something is amiss (e.g. vandalism), contact the listing broker immediately.
Be responsible for everyone you allow to enter listed property.
Never allow buyers to enter listed property unaccompanied.
When showing property, keep all members of the group together.
Never allow unaccompanied access to property without permission.
Enter property only with permission even if you have a lockbox key or combination.
Be considerate of the seller's property. Do not allow anyone to eat, drink, smoke, dispose of trash, use bathing or sleeping facilities, or bring pets.
If you’re running late or need to cancel a showing appointment for whatever reason, contact the listing office right away.
