If you’re like many Vero Beach home-sellers, you don’t really want your house to be open to the public 24 hours a day, 7 days a week… but restricting showing days and times could cost you a sale. Here’s what you need to know.
Should You Restrict Showing Days and Times?
When you’re selling your home, you want it to be as available as possible to prospective buyers. That doesn’t mean you have to allow late-night showings (your real estate agent will probably talk to you about the cut-off time you want, and if he or she doesn’t, you can bring it up).
But it does mean that you shouldn’t restrict showings to certain hours during the day or evening, or prevent showings on certain days. Some buyers are only available after work or on the weekends, for example, and some can only swing by on a lunch break during the week.

The bottom line is that the more people who come into your home, the better your chances are of selling it quickly and at the right price.
A lot of times, when buyers are turned away from a showing, they won’t bother to reschedule. They’ll just move on to the next home on the list – and they’ll never end up seeing yours, which means they’re certainly never going to buy it.
Talk to your agent if there are times you really can’t show your house, such as evenings when you’re hosting the local cub scout pack – but most importantly, try to be as available as possible for showings.
