Sellers Give Buyers a Chance to Get that Feeling No Place Like Home
Beth Atalay wrote a post about homeowner being present when their house is being shown yesterday I had just had that situation where the seller was home . The buyer was a first time buyers that knew what they wanted in fact they were in construction and were going to re-do the house to fit their wants and needs in their own time . here is what happened
The seller followed us around and showed us all the things that they thought were important that were not important to the buyer . It was a shame as it was a turn off to the buyer .It almost made you feel as if you were not trusted
Whatever the seller was trying to accomplish they did not .. I did try to tell the seller several times we were fine they could relax . We would show our selves around .I did try not to be rude but it did not work
The seller made the buyer so very uncomfortable following us from room to room . Telling us how much they paid for every little thing even trying to shh them did not work . I did tell them several times I was very familiar with the area and the original layout . In fact I once had been a resident of the community . The buyer even told them he was going to replace everything but they were so busy talking they did not even listen . Don't get me wrong the sellers were very nice sweet people . Just over anxious. The first thing we learn is listen
The seller thinking they were talking themselves into a buyer liking their house talked the buyer into disliking their house .
A buyer wants to be able to feel a house is going to be their home not your home
When I sit down with my clients on the intitial interview I explain to them you will get a feeling when you walk in to the right house . It is a feeling you get that this is home .
Please Mr & or Ms seller the buyers need to feel if this house is the right house for them
