Making Your Clients Comfortable in the Summer Heat
As real estate agents, we know that the summer heat in Dallas/Fort Worth can be intense. It’s important to keep our clients comfortable during home viewings. Here are some tips to help you do just that:
1. Keep the Car Cool
If you’re driving your clients to viewings, make sure the car is cool before they get in. Use remote start on your keyfob or app to start the car and give the AC time to cool it down. This small gesture can make a big difference in your clients’ comfort.
2. Provide Cold Water
Keeping a cooler with cold bottled water in your car is a great idea. It’s not just good for your clients, but for you as well. Staying hydrated is crucial in the summer heat.
3. Check the AC in the Home
Before you take your clients to view a home, check if the electricity and AC are on. A cool home is much more comfortable to view than a hot one. Plus, it gives your clients a chance to see how effective the AC is.
4. Schedule Viewings in the Morning or Evening
Try to schedule viewings in the morning or evening when the temperature is cooler. This can make the viewing experience more comfortable for your clients.
5. Provide Sunscreen and Hats
If you’re viewing homes with large outdoor spaces, consider providing sunscreen and hats to your clients. This can protect them from the sun and make the viewing experience more comfortable.
By following these tips, you can ensure that your clients have a comfortable home viewing experience, even in the summer heat. Remember, at Semper Fi Home Inspections, we’re here to help with all your home inspection needs.
