Philadelphia, Bucks and Montgomery Counties Real Estate. Tips for home buyers, home sellers by Gita Bantwal,Realtor at Re/Max Centre Realtors.: August 2012

Working with Buyers helps me be a good Seller agent as well and being a listing agent helps me when working with buyers.

I work with sellers and buyers. I  usually have open house on Sunday afternoons and devote the morning to buyers unless I have relocating buyers. Then I spend the entire weekend with them.

Most buyers like to look at homes on weekends and that gives me time on weekdays to market my listings, and market for listings and buyers.

There are buyers who look at homes on their lunch hour as well. In summer months buyers look at homes in the evenings. I can go on listing appointments in the evenings as well.

My experience working with buyers has taught me a lot about what buyers look for , what makes them want to go and look at a house and what makes them leave without looking at the house. ( I always tell them they should still go in if we are at the curb so as not to insult the seller.) I know buyers love to see lots of pictures online. Many people do not like strong cooking odors or smell of cigarettes. There are people who are scared of cats and dogs. They will not go in even if it is a friendly pet. These experiences have made me a good listing agent and I can advice sellers about clutter , curb appeal, smells, pets etc that may turn off buyers.

My experience working with sellers has taught me how many people think when they receive a low ball offer . They may have seller's remorse . They may feel insulted. My experiences working with sellers has taught me how to advice buyers when they buy a home.
