To Stay or to Go: Should You Be Present At Your Essex Home Viewings?


Do you have plans of listing your home for sale? The experience of inviting strangers to look at your home can either be fun or absolutely dreadful. However, it is a critical part of the selling process. Hence, the next question is whether you must stick around or disappear when potential buyers visit your home? Here are some of the options.

What do viewers want?


From my own experience, I would be confident that 90% of buyers prefer a viewing accompanied by an estate agent. This gives the buyer the freedom to relax without possibly offending a seller and asking multiple questions. Of course, the agent must be of a high standard to answer any questions a buyer may have.


Skills of the agent


If you have hired a world-class estate agent, they will use the viewing to figure out key signals. By listening to significant phrases and body language, a great estate agent can determine the level of interest without being told outright by the buyer.


Value for money


You hired an agent to produce the best end result – the highest-priced, smoothest sale. So let them do their job. If an agent is happy for you to conduct viewings, I would question their value.

Clearly, there are advantages as well as disadvantages associated with staying at home during viewings. In case you are willing to sell your home, get in touch with us today.
