A home that can be shown easily, sells quicker

What to Expect

  • Your home will be shown the most during the first 7-10 days on the market
  • Make your home available to show with as little limitations as possible
  • Realtor’s typically show several homes to a buyer within a short window span, and often do not have 24 hour advance notice
  • With internet marketing, more often than not, a Realtor will receive a call the same day from a buyer wanting to see your home as soon as possible
  • Showings are set up through the DFW Centralized Showing Service
  • You can approve a showing via phone or text
  • When a showing is approved, plan on leaving the home during the showing
  • A buyer may feel more like an intruder if the seller remains in the home and will not express their true opinion about the home to their Realtor
