We've only been on the market for a week, and already I'm sick of this crap. Just because it is a "buyer's market" doesn't mean you lose all basic etiquette. Our house is geared toward a very specific buyer - either a young family, or a family with one or two kids, who is willing to give up the frills a $300K house usually has to get some beautiful land. Example - our house sits on 3 acres, has awesome sunsets and great views, but you don't get the luxery bathroom with spa tub.
We've had 2 showings in the last week, and both times the buyer's agent kept changing times (from 3pm on Saturday to between 12:30 and 1:30 - after I worked a very late shift Fri noc). The Saturday showing got here at 1:29 exactly, spent less than 5 minutes in the house, left all my lights and doors open, and left. Last night's buyer was at least nice, but had a showing time of 5:30 to 6:30 (once again, I worked all day) and didn't show up until after 7:30. Basic etiquette.....you show up when and where you are supposed to, and don't track mud into my house. Wipe your feet at least!
Vent over.....I just find this absolutely ridiculous. Can pregnancy crazy hormones get started this early?
