REALTORS® have a lot of details to juggle in their daily lives, and in a hot real estate market, showing instructions probably aren’t on the top of your priority list. Even so, a hot market means it’s of utmost importance to provide detailed showing instructions if you’re listing a property or abide by the instructions when showing a property to prospective clients.
Provide thorough showing information in the listing so other subscribers may easily conduct a showing. We understand it’s tempting to get a listing up quickly, thinking you’ll fix it later, but this may set your colleagues and clients up for some unpleasant interactions.
Put yourself in the showing agent’s shoes.Double-check the showing instructions are accurate and that an agent showing the property has what they need to follow the instructions. If a listing instructs agents to call the owner first, the homeowner’s phone number should be included on the listing..
Do you need to restrict access to a listing?If so, please add those details in the Access Details in ShowingTime
Read—and follow—showing instructions. While you’re in Paragon checking the listing’s current status, thoroughly review the showing instructions detailed on the listing to avoid any mishaps or potential rules violation.
Trust your gut.If you arrive at a scheduled showing and something is off—an aggressive pet is loose in the house, minors are home alone, or a band of squatters is camped on the front lawn—consider rescheduling the showing.
