Portsmouth NH Homes – Make Your Home Easy to Show And Easy to Sell!

It’s Showtime For Your Portsmouth NH Home or Condo!


One of the most important conversations we’ll
have after the correct pricing of your home, will be the showing instructions
of your Portsmouth home for sale. You’re
weighing a lot of factors like commission, marketing, and staging.  I want to
talk about a couple of very important aspects of selling Portsmouth homes and condos.

Accessibility of your home for sale

More simply put, showing instructions. These
instructions can make or break the showings of your Portsmouth NH
home for sale
.  As an experienced New Hampshire REALTOR,
I know that many times requests for showings happen at the last
minute.   Many things can create that last minute urgency
for a showing of your home for sale:

  • –  A woman
    drops by an Open House that an agent is hosting; based on your
    conversation the REALTOR remember a particular home that might be
    perfect.  After a quick check with a
    pre-qualification, the woman’s REALTOR attempts to book a last minute appointment
    for your home.

  • –  Many times
    I decide on several homes for a client based on their criteria, yet in the
    second home they show the criteria changes. That is when a good agent
    adjusts course and tries to show homes within the new criteria.  And many times this causes a
    need to make appointments with short notice.

  • –  A client
    gets an MLS listing automatically from the agent, and absolutely has to see
    it because they love the way it looks.

  • –  You are
    driving to an appointment and the client yells “STOP the car – that is my
    dream house”.  A quick check, sign in the yard, a call to find
    out information, and try and get in.

  • –  Your
    listing just came up on the MLS in the morning before the agent goes out
    with their clients, and they want to add your home to their list.
