Jill Heineck’s Tactical Tips for Selling Your House in Today’s Environment
Lee Kantor: [00:00:05] Welcome to Jill Heineck’s Tactical Tips For Selling Your House In Today’s Environment. I’m Lee Kantor. Jill, today’s question is, what is the showing process like?
Jill Heineck: [00:00:15] The showing process has changed a little bit. I mean, yes, we’ve always had a lockbox where licensed agents could access the property once they’ve had a confirmed appointment. The confirmed appointments are through an app called ShowingTime. That is controlled either by the seller or myself. And, basically, we are online making appointments and accepting or changing appointments. So, we know in advance, typically the day before, when a showing is going to happen. And with that being said, per usual, you would then, as a seller, get your house tidied up, cleaned up, fluff your pillows, make sure beds are made, counters are clear.
Jill Heineck: [00:00:56] In addition to all of that, we’ve had to take additional steps to limit the number of services borrowers will touch on the property as well as disinfect between showing. So, it is taking a little bit longer for a seller to prep. In addition to this, all pets need to be put up or taken out. And then, of course, all the people are out while we’re showing the property. And so, this is the typical process with a little bit of added sanitizing and care for a healthy showing.
