Here at Century 21 Heritage House, much like many other brokerages, we have the ability to preview all of the new listings every week. The importance of this practice, especially as a reasonably new agent, is that it ensures that I am always up to date on what's happening in the market. Therefore, so are all of my clients.
In many circumstances, given that our tour is on Tuesday mornings and many houses are listed over the weekend, we are previewing the properties before they are even online.
One interested story occurred last year when a house was listed, within our office, on a Holliday Monday. Therefore, Tuesday morning was the very first time that the property was seen in any way, shape or form since it had been listed. Now, this listing was priced bang on the money and showed really well. As a result we were all excited to let all of our buyers know. As I recall, three of us Century 21 Heritage House agents had shown the property before 3:00pm that day and by 7:00pm or so, the property was SOLD!
Needless to say, myself and all of my clients are very happy that Century 21 has this tour every week. Additionally, I consider it a great way to continue offering my purchasing and selling clients the best service possible!
