How To Prepare Your Highlands Ranch Home For Snow Showings
Regardless of the snow, if your home is for sale in the Denver area and you have showings today, you better take them seriously. Because if anyone is out in this weather, you better bet they are a serious buyer.
Please be sure you have your sidewalks and driveways cleared of all snow and hazards. I have trudged through numerous driveways over the the years with buyers that snow is not cleared. And I have to tell you, every now and then a home buyer will just have had enough and not even get out of the car. This is especially true if they are a Denver relocation client, in from out of town and maybe not prepared for the weather. Do not loose a potential sale because of something that is very much under your control. Not to mention the hazard of someone falling while trying to get in your house.
Once you’ve done your part and the buyers get inside, you may want to have a sign asking to remove their shoes or provide shoe covers. Most people are respectful and may just remove their shoes anyway, some don’t. In any case, make this request obvious right as they enter so they won’t miss it.
Something not so evident – clear the back steps or deck a little too. Highlands Ranch home buyers will likely want to step out back, especially if they are already “feeling it” with your home. It is no secret that Coloradoans love the outdoors and they love to spend time in their own back yard. Even though there is a blanket of white out there, if they are serious about your house, they will want to open up that back door a peek outside so make it easy for them. They will appreciate it and so will you if you see their real estate contract come your way!
