Prepare Your SellerChances may be that your seller has less experience selling homes than you do (I hope). For this reasonsellers do ’t k ow u h a out the selli g pro ess.It does ’t atter how up to date o the selli g pro ess your seller appears to be, never make theassu ptio that they u dersta d the full pro ess of arketi g, selli g a d losi g a ho e. It’s alwaystime well spent to explain the process thoroughly before a home is put on the market.Hopefully you are able to meet with a seller a little in advance so you can give them some of the pieces Ihave written on how to get your home ready for the market. Please see a sample of one of my manyblogs on the next page.Here are some other topics you will need to discuss with your seller.  Discuss what changes will be necessary in the day to day lifestyle of the seller. (When your home is listed you must always be cleaning and ready for showings).  How would the seller like to be communicated with; phone calls, email, text messaging. And how often?  All about the style of lockbox you use and how it works.  How showings and previews work.  How often you collect feedback and how you will report it.  Why you wo ’t e atte di g ost showi gs – explain about agency and how that works.Giving your seller information up front will help you avoid frustrations during the listing period.Getting calls from uninformed, frustrated sellers is something we all should try to avoid.
