Selling Your Home: The path of least resistance is preferred.

A wise real estate agent once told me they offered this advice to prospective home sellers "The path of the least resistance will increase your chance of success."

What she meant was accommodate reasonable showing requests.

A few days ago I requested to show cash buyers from out of town a home in Viera, Florida.  It was the one listing they were most excited about seeing.  I try to request showings a couple fo days out when possibel.  In this case it was two days.

The response was "How about at 1:00 four days from now?"

My out of state buyers missed out on that house.  We have a couple of other properties under consideration right now.

Selling your home requires teamwork - your real estate agent, the buyer's agent, buyers,, the seller.

If you are really serious about selling your Viera, Florida home then consider the path of least resistance when it comes to requests from prospective buyers.
