Selling a home can be a stressful and challenging experience, especially if you’re doing it on your own as a for sale by owner (FSBO) seller. One of the most critical components of selling your home is getting feedback from potential buyers. This feedback will help you understand what’s working and what’s not in your listing and presentation, enabling you to make changes to attract more buyers and ultimately sell your home faster.
After every showing, it’s essential to ask for feedback from the buyer or the buyer’s real estate agent. This feedback can provide invaluable insights into what potential buyers are looking for and what you need to do to make your home more attractive to them.
Here are some tips for how to ask for feedback
Timing is key: Wait 2-3 hours after the showing to ask for feedback. This will give the buyer time to let their thoughts settle, and the home’s features will still be fresh in their mind.
Use text messaging: Texting is an effective way to request feedback because it’s convenient for the buyer, and they can respond when they have time.
Be clear and honest: Let the buyer know that you’re looking for honest and blunt feedback so that you can make improvements to your home’s listing and presentation.
Avoid asking during the showing: Asking for feedback during the showing can be awkward for the buyer, and they may not give you honest answers in person.
The most effective feedback questions to ask potential buyers
In addition to these questions, you may also want to ask if the home met their expectations based on the listing description, if there were any repairs or improvements that need to be made, and if the home’s size and layout were satisfactory.
Remember, getting feedback from potential buyers is critical to selling your home quickly and for the best price. Use the feedback to make adjustments and improvements to your listing and presentation, and you’ll increase your chances of attracting more buyers and getting the offer you’re looking for.
