There is pros and cons on both sides.
An existing house will have the advantage to have made its proof of time. We can automatically see the imperfections and defaults. These problems, if any, can be negotiated at the purchase with the seller.
Keeping the house or business maintained and clean specially during visits will help greatly.
When you are ready to sell, the simple fact of repainting the exterior and interior can give a second breath to the house or business.
Preventing animals from distracting the potential buyer by temporarily locking them in a room or going for a walk during the visit will greatly help.
Allow the broker to do his job, do not interfere with his work. A relationship of trust has been established between the broker and his potential buyer, interrupting or being too close or too present during the visit may make the buyer uncomfortable or give the impression that you are too eager to sell.
