Sellers want to know what’s going on with their listing.

They also want to know why they have to be out of their house during appointments, in addition to when. Is it for an inspection? Listing photos? A third showing for a very interested buyer?

Knowing the reason behind requested appointments can not only keep sellers up to date on their listing’s activity, but also speed up the process of getting appointments confirmed.

That’s why ShowingTime encourages listing agents to have their sellers download the ShowingTime mobile app, which helps make homeowners a bigger part of the selling process by being able to confirm appointments, review feedback and more.

Understanding that photos are being taken or a walk-through is scheduled could allow for those type of requests to occur during times the home might not otherwise be available for a regular showing.

Therefore, ShowingTime offers buyer’s agents, inspectors and others needing access to the home eight different appointment types to choose from while scheduling online or with the ShwoingTime mobile app. When they call an office using ShowingTime Front Desk, or they call the ShowingTime Appointment Center, they can also indicate the type of appointment.

Options include:

  1. Showing
  2. 2nd Showing
  3. 3rd Showing
  4. Agent Preview
  5. Appraisal
  6. Inspection*
  7. Walk-Through
  8. Photography
  9. Broker Price Opinions

*When you choose “Inspection,” a new drop down will appear and you’ll see:

  • Chimney Inspection
  • Foundation Inspection
  • Pest Inspection
  • Radon Drop Off
  • Radon Pick Up
  • Roof Inspection
  • Septic Inspection
  • Site Measurements

These various appointment types not only help create a complete history of your listing’s activity, but also keep your sellers in the loop — and, ultimately, could lead to getting your appointment confirmed swiftly and your listing sold quickly.
