When An Open House Visitor Won't Leave.
What's an agent to do when it's time to end the open house and one of the visitors won't leave?
This critter entered with a couple just a few minutes after the open house began. He initially had trouble getting good footing on the ceramic tile entry, but successfully wiggled his way to the carpet in the formal living room. The couple wandered through the home and eventually left, but the lizard decided he liked the house and was going to look around a bit longer.
Every once in a while I'd check on Larry. He hung out in the living room for about an hour. When I went to check on him again, I found him in the utility room where he remained for the rest of the open house.
Since this is a vacant property, there's nothing in there designed for lizard rescue, not even a broom. Larry and I discussed the situation. I was perfectly happy to lock him in when I left, with the understanding that he'd find his way out tonight. I hope he keeps his promise. Or decides to make an offer on the house.
