This will eliminate tire kickers. Of course it may depend upon how hot your market actually is, as to whether you can demand to do business this way.
What you will find is if someone isn’t interested in commiting on paper, then maybe they are just browsing, not really interested in making a purchase. This will reduce the number of showings drastically. If they are a buyer, then write the contract containing all terms, etc. first, and the offer is contingent upon insp by purchaser within x number of days, and purchaser shall then have 48 hours from date of insp to submit a letter of cancellation to Seller… That way you are hopefully only showing to those who are ready to do business.
Good luck on it…
