Orlando Florida | Sell Your Home | Getting Feedback from Orlando Florida Buyers

We all realize how important showings are to the Successful Sale of your Orlando Area property.  We don’t know if it will be the first or the 100th showing that will result in an offer.  So EVERY showing is very important of your Orlando Florida home.  We need your help in this process, so always set the stage for the Orlando Showing Realtor:

  • Place lights on, open shades to let sunlight in
  • Turn on some soft music in the background
  • Don’t go overboard with the air fresheners
  • We live in Orlando Florida — Turn the air down to ensure the potential buyers are comfortable when viewing your home
  • Make sure the beds are made and any clutter is put away
  • Toilet seats down
  • Don’t forget the refrigerator – no stuff on it and inside should be organized and not over stuffed. 
  • Always remember — LESS IS MORE!
  • Want to stand out?  Place some cookies or candy on the counter next to the flyers.  One client put an ice bucket with 3 bottle of water on ice for each showing
  • Please let me know when you are down to your last 5 flyers
  • Don’t be there – it makes buyers extremely uncomfortable, if you are there, apologize and leave quickly
While we hope that these things don’t happen, Some things that can happen with your Orlando Home Showing:
  • Realtor not leaving a card, or not turning the lights off as they leave
  • Realtor forgetting to lock the door or taking the supra key with them
  • Realtors leaving a sliding door ajar
  • Realtors not showing up – it happens the client doesn’t want to go in based on the outside/neighborhood, I know I call the listing agent (that is why we have cell phones) but not every agent is good about it.
  • If this happens, call us immediately!  We will do our best to rectify the situation immediately.

This is where wrestling a Tiger to the ground is sometimes easier — getting feedback!  Right now Orlando has a lot of properties on the market.  Buyers have lots of choices and they are looking at a lot of Orlando Florida properties.  Buyers and their Real Estate Professionals don’t always remember your Orlando area home if they don’t like it. 

We will make every effort possible to get it, but sometimes it is just not going to happen.  For what ever reason that person was not interested, we are going to focus on putting your property in front of those that might be interested.  We are successful in getting feedback about 50% of the time and our procedures in our office are: 

  •      Someone in our office calls after the appointment
  •      If there is no response in 24 hours, we follow up with an email
  •      Still no response in 24 hours after the email – we call as a last effort

Remember to keep your Orlando Florida home ready to show and we will do our best to get you those showings so we can put a Sold sign on your property!  Have questions regarding the sale of your home?  Need to speak to a Realtor about listing your home?  Call the Orlando Avenue Top Team today at (407) 467-5155 or visit our website at for more helpful hints!
