Even on a day like today, with -30 windchills, I am showing properties to prospective buyers. You have to think they are serious buyers. I mean, who else is out in this weather?
As a seller, please take the time to treat us well and welcome us into your home. Leave the front lights on so I can find the lockbox on your front door. If your lockbox is buried and frozen in snow or require me to find it in the snowdrift at the side of your house, I have to tell you that you are not my favourite house today. Please leave out a mat at the front door. We are trying to keep your entrance clean, but we need some help. There are 4 pairs of boots in our group. The mess depends on whether or not the driveway and sidewalk have been cleared.
This is also the time of year that many Calgarians take the opportunity to fly to somewhere warm for a week or 2 or 10. If you have your home on the market, then you have to stay accessible. If you don't want an offer to ruin your holiday than take your home off the market. If you do keep your home on the market than make sure someone is taking care of your home and welcoming us inside.
If I show your home tonight to my buyers and you leave the lights on for me, I appreciate it. Hopefully I bring you an offer.
