You may nd out you have a listing that would suit them perfectly. If they have opted to subscribe to your newsletter via the guest register, ensure you add them to the list. Agents tend to overlook the amount of e ort a seller generally puts in to making their home presentable and saleable. If you don't see the seller after the inspection, it's courteous to leave a brief note acknowledging the state of the house and the common interest. You should aim to provide a full report on open house activity via written or verbal communication within a few days after the inspection. These may seem like basic, straightforward steps in ensuring a successful open home; however, even the more experienced agents can overlook the fundamentals. Following a few, simple industry standards can work wonders for guaranteeing the best outcome for you, as the agent, and for the seller.
