What are the top five showing mistakes home sellers should avoid?

  • Not Having Your Home Show Ready

  • Following Buyers Around

  • Leaving Alarms On

  • Leaving Screen Doors Locked

  • Not containing Pets

Buyers and their agents prefer to be able to view the property without distraction. However, it is your home so if you cannot leave, it is ok but there are some things you can do to make it go well.

  • Don’t Hover
  • Available for questions
  • Avoid disclosing all the homes faults
  • Present home in the Best Possible Light

When Presenting a Home For Sale You Should Make sure:


  • Your home needs to look its best
  • Clean, Decluttered, Smell
  • Avoid cooking food with strong odors
  • Avoid strong candles or air fresheners

Good Smells:

  • As long as you leave some for them

Provide GREAT Information About the Home!
