Welcome to Vermont Real Estate & Home Services Blog

Your agent will discuss these in more detail but here are some considerations:

  1. Always provide the agent with a key.  In Vermont we often don’t lock our homes but once you are on the market, the agent should use a key.
  2. Try to leave during all showings.  Private viewings are more relaxed and buyers can be vocal about their likes and dislikes.
  3. Listen to your agent as to how they will enter your property.  Coming in through the garage might not be a good first impression.
  4. Clean and tidy up.  Buyers will like a neat home but don’t obsess on it either.  A buyer isn’t going to rule you out just because a bed isn’t made.
  5. Remember smells.  Smoking, cooking strong fish, stale kitty litter or even heavily scented candles or cleaning agents can be a subliminal turn offs.
