7 Etiquette Tips Every Home Seller Should Know

Reprint from Elk River Star News & Anoka County Shopper, "Real Estate News by Stephanie Danielson" - 8/20/16 issue

No matter how nice the home, sellers need to know that their behavior can affect how buyers feel about writing an offer.  Listed below are 7 etiquette tips that will help sellers put their home and themselves in the best possible light!



  1. Leave for showings. Buyers feel uncomfortable when owners are present.
  2. Remove your pets for showings and open houses.
  3. Move your car to make it easy for visitor parking.
  4. Lay out important docs to help buyers make their decision, such as; inspection reports, monthly utility expenses, proof of major repairs, summer photos if winter, etc.
  5. Be patient for showing feedback which can take a few days to arrive.
  6. Don’t be greedy. Unwillingness to negotiate can kill a deal.
  7. Don’t shoot the messenger. Keep emotions out of the equation. Listen to what trained professionals have to say about your home.
