Selling a Myrtle Beach Home- Unexpected Showings

So you have your home for sale in Myrtle Beach and your listing agent has just stuck the sign in the front yard.  You have already painted all the walls & cleaned the house to perfection for the upcoming showings.  But, what happens when someone shows up at the door wanting to see your home without an appointment.  As crazy as this sounds, it is something that happens fairly often.

People are out driving the neighborhood and see a new sign in the yard.  They quickly look up the property on their smartphone and the awesome photos your listing agent took make them have to see the property.  They become so excited that this might be “the one” that they jump out of the car and rush to your door asking to view your home. When this happens, I would suggest you direct the person to contact your listing agent and not allow them access to the home. You never know if that person is legitimately interested in your home or if it someone who is going to rob you.

When you list your property, ask your agent for a stack of cards and keep them handy.  Simply hand them a business card and let your agent handle the showing.  Your safety isn’t worth a showing.  They can schedule something for later that day or the next with your agent.  Your agent has ways to verify that the person is serious about purchasing a home and knows the questions to ask to keep you and your home safe.

By having them schedule the showing through your listing agent, you can have a level of protection for you and your family.  For more on the things I provide when selling a home in Myrtle Beach, contact me today!  Let my marketing system that exposes your home to over 37,000 potential buyers in less than 24 hours work to help get your home SOLD today!
