Check Your Temperature!

Friday, May 24th, 2013

heatWhat’s happening outside shouldn’t affect what’s happening inside when you have a house showing. Whether you are battling the heat of summer or the frigid temperatures of winter it’s important that you adjust your thermostat accordingly. Being in your home should be a pleasant experience for perspective buyers. This doesn’t mean that you have the keep the house warmer or cooler all day, just for couple of hours, if that.

Case in point …
I was showing a house to a family. The house showed  beautifully with one exception; it was too warm in the house. One of the buyers even commented to me at the beginning of the showing that it was a bit warm. I checked the thermostat and it was set at 79 degrees. It was bearable until everyone came in from outside. When the buyers came back in from looking at the pool and other outside amenities, they were dripping in sweat and desperately searching for an air vent to get some cool air. Not getting much relief, it was only few minutes after that the buyers were ready to leave for the next house. They were so happy when we got in the car and could have lots of cold air blowing on them.
