Dreary, Rainy Day Showings FRIDAY | AUGUST 18, 2017
Rainy Day Showings! It’s a miserable day and the rain is coming down and the last thing you want to do is show a house, but showings in the rain do have some advantages. If someone is willing to come out in the rain to look at a house, you know they are pretty serious and very interested in the house. They are able to see how the house operates in the rain. Is the cellar wet? Are the gutters clear? Does the roof leak? Do you get drenched at the door? This can be very helpful to a buyer.
What about the seller? What are the advantages of showing your house in the rain?
Well, for one, the house looks very inviting and homey and that is exactly what a buyer is looking for. Take advantage of that. Turn on a lot of lights so the house is inviting and a drastic change from the dreary outside. Put the heat up so the home is warm and inviting. Open the windows a tad if you can to take away some of the stuffiness and smells. Soft music and a warm fireplace can also add to the homey feeling. You want them to feel at home and picture themselves living there.
A dreary, rainy day is never the best situation, but you can turn lemons into lemonade and show off your house to its advantage.
