Some of my clients in Summit County have been asking me about home showings. They want to know whether or not they should be present during a home showing.

The short answer is no, absolutely not.

I know it can become inconvenient, but you need to vacate your home during a showing. You can run to a coffeeshop, go exercise, or do anything that doesn’t involve you being at home. 

Buyers tend to feel very uncomfortable looking at a home when the owner is present. Just imagine how you would feel if you were in their shoes. It would be a little awkward, and you’d probably leave the showing with a bad impression.


So, if you want to sell quickly, don’t be present during a home showing.
