I always impress on my sellers that they should always do their best to not decline a showing. Obviously there are emergencies that arise but for the most part, sellers need to accommodate showing requests.
This week I have had several sellers decline my buyers' showing requests.
The first is a luxury home that my buyer wants to see. He is very much interested in the home because it is a floor plan that he has been looking for. I called 3 days before the planned showing and the showing was declined. I was told no showings until 1 week from the requested date.
Today I called a short sale and I was told I could only give them a half an hour window. Then they declined saying that tomorrow (Monday) between 1 and 1:30 would be better.
I called another home and was told they weren't available today but tomorrow at 4 would be good.
The third place today we made the appointment and they showed up and no one was there to let us in.
Needless to say, this has been a frustrating showing week for me.
In this real estate market it is critical that a buyer sees your home. Tomorrow may be too late if they see and fall in love with something today.
Please let us see the house.
