How to stop home buyers in their tracks during a showing

How to stop home buyers in their tracks during a showingDid you know there are several ways to stop home buyers in their tracks during a showing?

When selling a home, the first impression for home buyers is of utmost importance.

Whether the initial impression is good or bad, it forms the home buyers’ opinion about the property.

It is very well possible the first impression is a fatal one, it happens more often than you think.  In other blogs, I have described how a seller can be a pain in the butt and how to sell your undesirable house in Costa Rica.

To sell or not to sell

You really don’t want to sell your house? Do you really want to be rude and make home buyers feel unwelcome?  Here are 10 Damn Good Doormats that for sure will make a fatal impression and stop all home buyers from making you an offer. You can purchase these doormats online.

1.       Wrong house!

With this doormat, you’re giving the home buyers the perfect reason to not even see the house on the inside.

2.       A seller who insists on great communication

And even if your real estate agent did call to set up the showing, you’re giving the home buyers a rude enough message to not come in.

3.       Go Away!

Short and powerful, a very unpleasant message.

If you are looking to buy a home in Costa Rica or invest in a condo anywhere in the central Valley, or looking for any property for sale in Escazu, you need to call me. I have been selling real estate in Escazu for over 20 years and can show you hundreds of happy buyers of real estate in Escazu and other areas. To me, a deal is not a good deal unless both buyer and seller are happy.
