5 Etiquette Rules Every Seller Should Know

The process of selling your home can be a tough one. You’ve spent a significant amount of time staging it and even scrubbed every room top to bottom. It’s in immaculate shape, but what may surprise you is that your behavior also plays a vital role in the way potential buyers feel. Here are the 5 etiquette rules every seller should know to ensure that her or his home is showcased in the best possible light.

When there is a showing, it is important to leave your home and let your real estate agent do their job. Although you’re dying to see the reaction potential buyers have to your home, remaining there will make them feel uncomfortable. Removing yourself during a showing also allows the buyers to more easily visualize living there themselves, which is a huge selling point.

2. Take your pets with you

There is nothing more distracting than a barking dog or playful kitten running around your home during a showing. In addition, potential buyers could be allergic, and animals in the home may deter them from buying. Provide your buyers with a comfortable, stress-free experience when viewing your home by removing your pets. From caged to uncaged companions, take them with you to ensure that you don’t alienate potential buyers.

3. Provide parking

Keep your home warm and inviting by providing buyers with quick and convenient parking options, if possible. It’s important to move your vehicles in order to make it easy for visitors to park and view your home. There is nothing more frustrating than parking issues, and if someone has to park far away just to view your home, they may skip the event altogether.

4. Provide important documents

Many potential homebuyers will have questions about your home. Since you won’t be there to answer them (if you follow the first rule of seller etiquette), you still want to be able to answer all questions quickly and effectively. This can increase the chances of receiving an offer, and make the potential buyers’ experience more enjoyable. Leave all necessary documents, such as the inspection report, home warranty, monthly bill information, proof of repairs, appraisal, and such, with your agent. These are all things potential buyers may want to see. Most states offer a Seller’s Disclosure that is provided to all interested parties before an offer is made. It is important to have that filled out as best as possible for all potential buyers as well.

5. Be patient

You may have countless showings before your home is sold. It is important to be patient with every buyer who walks through the door. You’re eager to know how the showings went and what the prospects thought of your home, but it can take some time for buyers to process what they’ve seen before making an offer.



By keeping these etiquette rules in mind, you ensure your home is showed at its best to potential buyers and real estate agents.

Robbie was amazing. He was able to get us the best sale price possible, and he was very responsive whenever we had questions or concerns during the process. I was also worried that selling would be a big headache, but Robbie and his crew made it super easy for us. We couldn’t be happier!

This is the second house Robbie has helped us sell! He is very knowledgeable and professional! Genevieve also helped us a ton with buying our new home! We are so thankful for both of them and what they have done to help our family over the past two years! Thanks Robbie and Genevieve!

Robbie exceeded our expectations; he was knowledgeable of the market trends in our area. He realized the square footage of our home in the prior appraisals was lower than the real area and that enabled us to get a better price for the home. We would highly recommend Robbie to anybody interested in selling or purchase a home.

Robbie was such a pleasure to have as my realtor. He is always patient, kind, and helpful. I'm a first-time home-buyer, so there were a lot of things I needed to learn about and a lot of complicated documents to slog through. Robbie and his team guided me smoothly through the whole process. Robbie has a lot of experience in the Albuquerque real estate market and was able to give me good advice. He always responds to calls, texts, and emails right away, never keeps you waiting. Everyone on his team, from the people in his office to his fantastic loan officer to all the inspectors he lined up for me -- they were all top-notch, professional, and really pleasant to work with.

Robbie Faithe and Jamie Cline were instrumental in our efforts to find and purchase our first home. Robbie helped strongly negotiate our position in a market that is frankly predatory and outright hostile to homebuyers, especially first-timers with little experience. He helped us move to a swift close while making sure everything was conducted soundly, promptly and with our interests at the forefront. He was supportive of us through the entire process, even after our first negotiations fell through, and was adamant about finding a house that we would truly want, not just the first home that met our loose criteria. Jamie Cline was vital in her role to assist us with booking appointments as well as keeping us apprised of all deadlines and offering advice when we desired. Overall, though this first-time homebuying experience was very stressful at times, Robbie and his team made sure there were as few impediments to the process as possible while making sure we were taken care of. I would definitely recommend their homebuying services and expertise.

Robbie is truly the best in NM. I have worked with Robbie before and once again he accomplished everything me and my family needed. He sold our house within 24 hours. I recommend anyone looking to buy or sell a house to use Robbie Faithe and his company. Thank you to the Faithe Realtor Team!!
