Showings are scheduled between buyers and sellers so that a prospective buyer can tour the property. The coordination for the showings is generally coordinated between the respective Realtors, with the input of the buyer and seller of course.

For the Seller:

  • The Realtor will usually provide a Lockbox where a key for the property will be placed.

  • Either your Realtor or the Buyer’s Realtor will escort the Buyer through your home

  • Make sure to prepare your property for a showing and to also secure your valuables. It is recommended that Sellers do not leave anything out. Although a Realtor will be present during the showing, it is always better to be safe and secure your items.

  • When a Buyer and the Buyer’s Realtor has coordinated a showing with a Seller, the Realtor will receive a Lockbox code to open the Lockbox to receive the key and gain access to the property.

For the Buyer:

  • Your Realtor can either coordinate an individual property showing or schedule multiple properties in one day. It is usually a lot more efficient to see multiple properties in a day.

  • Only a Realtor is able to receive a Lockbox code from the Seller’s Lockbox per the Illinois regulations.
