HOW MANY HOMES ARE “TOO MANY” TO SHOW TO A BUYER IN 1 DAY?

Share

I think more than 4 homes is too many.  Some agents show all day and by the time the buyer sees home #5 they have forgotten the first one.

THE QUESTION OF THE AFTERNOON IS :   HOW MANY HOUSES ARE TOO MANY TO SHOW TO ANY 1 BUYER IN A DAY?

All buyers are not the same, some can see more houses than another set of buyers while other buyers dont want to see more than 2 houses.

On average I dont like to show more than 3-4 houses to any one buyer in a day. Any more than that the houses get all mixed together.  When i first meet a buyer it is better to show less houses to get a better idea of what they are looking for so if they dont like the first 2 i can readjust my search and better located what they ARE looking for.

I think it is important to have a good level of communication to what a buyer is looking for, i ask alot of questions up front or what they like or dont like and what they need, what they want and what they dont want. This helps me narrow down their searches.

What do you think?

As a buyer how many homes do you want to see in any one outting/

As a agent how man homes do you want to show any 1 buyer and why?

About susanmorrison

After living in Walpole, MA for many years, our family was transferred to the west coast when I was a senior in high school. In 1983, I graduated from Mission San Jose High School in Fremont, California. I am also a 1987 graduate of Providence College with a major in liberal arts and a minor in business administration. I bring to the table many years of sales experience beginning with thirteen years in Corporate Sales at Delta Air Lines. I'm the mother of three children and I'm very active within the Franklin, MA community. I am also a cancer survivor and support the American Cancer Society Charities.

My husband and I have built five homes and I've lived in a variety of other locations including Toronto Canada, Irving Texas and my current home in Franklin, MA. As a result of all my moving around, I came to the conclusion that I was an expert at moving...why not become an expert on the other side of the table? I earned my real estate license in 2004 and believe that I have found my true niche'. I can empathize with my clients on a variety of levels; whether they are buying or selling. And, like so many other good realtors out there, I believe that possessing good communication skills is one of the many keys to success.
