Real Estate Q & A: Is it Possible to Schedule Showings Only When We’re at Work?

Question: Is it possible to schedule showings only when we’re at work so our evenings, weekends and family time are not disturbed?

I hear this question in one form or another all the time; only when we’re at work, only when we’re at home, only when the kids are at school, only when the dog is in daycare, only on Saturdays… you get the point.

The Answer is: Yes it is possible, maybe, or not. Is it advisable? Never. It usually all comes down to how quickly you want to sell your home. Ease of showing is one of a listing’s most critical selling points. The harder you make it, the longer it will take. Potential Home Buyers will happily move on to the next property if it’s difficult to schedule a viewing for yours. By the time they’ve looked at three or four… your home has been forgotten. Even when inventory is low as it is right now, there are too many competing listings for Home Buyers to put up with any inconvenience. Your home may be the better home, but if no one sees it that won’t matter.
