As an agent, you know from experience the kinds of curve balls that can be thrown your way when you’re out showing homes to potential buyers. So being prepared in any situation is a must to make sure you can continue business as usual no matter what situation comes your way.

1. Digital Tape measure

More times than not you’ll find yourself in situations where you need to take quick measurements of an area.

2. Bottles of water

For days when the heat is too much to bare and you or a client just needs to quench your thirst.

3. Flashlight

This always comes in handy, especially if you’re showing a home in the evening and there is no natural light to light up the homes interior.

4. Toilet paper

This is for a pretty obvious use, but toilet paper is an essential item that you will want to keep at all times.

5. First aid kit

Always be prepared for a minor emergency and keep your first aid kit fully stocked.

6. Hammer

You may find yourself putting up and taking down open house signs pretty frequently so keeping a hammer at hand could save you on hassle.

7. Snacks

Whether you get “hangry” after a long day on the job or your clients’ kids are complaining about how hungry they are, having snacks is a must.

8. Work gloves

There are a number of things that you may come across that may have to be picked up or moved to prepare for a showing.

9. Dog treats

Yappy dogs can be a nuisance when showing a home. Keeping some treats for the furry friends can help keep them busy.

10. Air fresheners

Homes that have been sitting unattended for some time can develop unpleasant odors. Air fresheners may help alleviate the foul smells so that you and your clients can breathe easier in a home.
