Here are five levels of access that you can give to Boston condo for sale buyers, along with a brief description:

1.Lockbox on the Door – this allows buyers the ability to see the home as soon as they are aware of the listing, or at their convenience.

2. Providing a Key to the Home – although the buyer’s agent may need to stop by an office to pick up the key, there is little delay in being able to show the home.

3. Open Access with a Phone Call – the seller allows showings with just a phone call’s notice.

4. By Appointment Only (example: 48-Hour Notice) – Many buyers who are relocating for a new career or promotion start working in that area prior to purchasing their home. They often like to take advantage of free time during business hours (such as their lunch break) to view potential homes. Because of this, they may not be able to plan their availability far in advance or may be unable to wait 48 hours to see the house.

5. Limited Access (example: the home is only available on Mondays or Tuesdays at 2 pm or for only a couple of hours a day) – This is the most difficult way to be able to show your house to potential buyers.
