Running your business: Showing your property

Here’s some considerations that I hope are helpful for you:

Have a mat outside for wiping feet, and a small rug (with non-slip backing) inside at the front door.  This will help keep the property clean.

In the bathroom, remember to have toilet paper, hand-soap, and a nice towel available.  No explanation needed.

Make sure that the temperature inside is pleasant.  And not only for showings.  The temperature should always be reasonable: too cold and pipes could burst, too warm and wood flooring could be ruined.

Go over before a showing and make sure that blinds are open and lights are on.  Potential renters love a property with lots of light!  And remember to go over after the showing.  Not only is it best to turn the lights out (nothing says empty house than a brightly lit one in the middle of the night), but you’d be amazed how many realtors will leave a door unlocked.  Or a gate open.  While you’re there, do a quick sweep of the property to make sure that all is well.

    But will the renters like lots of light if they’re vampires or millennials?
