What Do I Do While My Listing Agent Holds An Open House?

While the listing agent is holding the open house, or while the home is being shown by another agent, what should a seller do? 

First of all, every real estate professional who has ever written an opinion about it, agrees that the seller should not be around while their home is being shown. Buyers need freedom to roam and ask questions without the seller being present. Buyers need to be able to “picture themselves” in the rooms and spaces, imagining their own belongings filling the house. If the sellers are hanging around, that puts a big wet blanket over a buyer’s imagination. 

Having the seller present during a showing makes a buyer uncomfortable and less able to ask questions of their agent. Instead of being free to consult and discuss things that come to mind, whether they pertain to that particular house of just in general, creates a negative experience for the buyer. So it’s best if sellers can find something to do and somewhere to go.
