Absolutelly agree. 5 hours is longer than what a home inspection will take. A showing should not take more than one hour and at the most 1.5 hours...... www.HOMEINSPECTORUSA.biz
I just read a featured blog about courtesy during showings.
While I agree with everything the author talks about, one thing really stood out to me an made me think...
She mentioned that a lot of agents, when scheduling showings, ask for a 5 hour window to see the home.
That agent expects the sellers of that home to be gone for 5 hours?
They're supposed to pack up the kids and the dogs and drive around the neighborhood for 5 hours?
No way! That's just not happening.
That's completely unrealistic and discourteous to the sellers.
If I have a buyer that wants to see 4-5 homes in an afternoon, I log on to the MLS, look up the homes, look at the map, and then schedule accordingly.
I normally ask for an hour time frame to see each home, and calculate travel time in between each showing as well.
I ask for a showing to start at 4:00 pm, and end at 5:00. That way, if I'm a little behind, I still have an hour window.
I don't remember the last time I was so far behind that I was worried about not getting in during that time frame.
But 5 hours for a showing? Come on... That's just crazy.
