How Do I Show My Property

@Steve Rozenberg , not sure of the answer, but you might get more responses if you are able to edit your title (missing a vital 's'). If you can't edit your heading, I think any of the Moderators should be able to (eg. @Ned Carey) if you ask them? Cheers...

as far as marketing goes or staging it to look attractive for a tenant or buyer . Need a little more information 

Hi Steve, if you mean by "show your property" the actual act of walking potential renter/buyer through the best way I've found is to give them the basics (3 bed/2 bath) at the front door and telling them you'll be on the front steps or outside if they have any questions. Letting the renter/buyer walk the property themselves will allow them to take they're time and really consider the property. 

When they are done, I typically ask them what they liked and what they don't like. This helps me address any small issues (paint color) that may be the biggest hurdle to them moving into one of my units. 

Cheers mate.

 If you are showing an occupied unit, the quote here is exactly how you should NOT do it.  Those walking through unescorted are able to pilfer belongings without your having a clue, until it's too late ...

 I've only showed my properties after the former tenant moved out. I should have specified that on my previous post. Of course if you're showing an occupied property you should not leave a perspective tenant alone in the unit.
