First week of Showing

Step 7 To Selling Your Home: The First Week Your Home Is on the Market

Historic homes in ChicagoThe first week your home is on the market, there are some very important metrics which we keep a close eye on:

Number of Showings

Our goal is to have between 5 – 10 showings, depending on the time of the year, the first week your home is on the market. If we don’t have at least 5 showings we have a problem and either the marketing/photography is bad, or we’re not priced correctly. If this occurs, we need to have an honest discussion about what needs to be fixed.  After the first week, our goal is to have 3 – 4 showings per subsequent week.  Depending on the feedback we’re receiving at showings and the number of showings, we may need to talk about reducing the price if we don’t have an offer after the first 2 weeks.
