- I will put a lockbox up so that members of the Alaska MLS (Multiple Listing Service) can access the property. MLS members have electronic keys which open any MLS lockboxes. The lockbox pops open and your house key is inside. The salesperson takes out your key and uses it to access the property, then locks the door and puts it back into the lockbox when they leave.
- Decide how you want salespeople to notify you that they will be accessing your property. Do you want them to call and leave a message? Do you want them to speak with you? Are there certain hours the property is not available to view? Can they simply drop in? The easier it is to look at, the more showings you will get.
- Do you have a tenant? Tenants complicate things a little . . . or a lot, depending upon the tenant. We can talk about it.
- The main thing is to keep the house tidy and clean all the time. It's not easy, but worth it in the end.
