Ask A Real Estate Expert: Should Sellers be present during a Property Showing?

So should Sellers be present during a property showing?  Sellers could answer any of the questions that the Buyer might have, and that would be good, right? In actual reality it is bad, believe it or not. The only question that the Buyer wants to know while looking at a property for the first time is if they can see themselves living there.   If the Sellers is present during the showing, or even if the Seller’s pictures are everywhere, that makes it harder for the Buyer to picture themselves in that house.

I have had experiences where the Sellers have been present during the viewing of their home.  They answered all of the Buyers questions and end up talking too much. In the end the Seller walks away thinking the Buyers are really interested in the property and the Buyers walk away thinking the Sellers really love THEIR house. Unfortunately the Buyers are looking for their own home.
