Once your property is ready for showings we will send you a Bluetooth lock box and set up our home showing app with your property.
After set up, buyer agents will call and be vetted by us, which if approved will be sent to you for final approval. If you approve the showing then the agent will schedule via the showing application and enter using a one time lock box code.
No, you do not need to be at your home for the showing and we recommend not being at the house.
We provide a Bluetooth lock box to all our sellers that only verified and vetted agents will be able to access.
While we love to meet all our sellers in person you do not need to come to our office. Everything we do can be done safely online and remotely.

B. CANCELLATION OF LISTING. There are no fees for cancellation after 90 days of being active in the MLS.

Seller alsoacknowledges that factors that greatly impact Everhome’s ability to sell the home, like list price, BuyerBroker commission, showing access and other factors are decided by seller alone.
