I have been showing several homes the last two months and a couple of buyers are looking in the higher-end price point. Several times the showing instructions say - the Listing Agent must be present. One of the homes I showed has artwork and decor that looks very expensive, so I can understand that one.
Do they want to be there to meet the buyers and chat with them? I always instruct my buyers, give first names only, and keep the "chatting" to a minimum. They don't need to know your situation. I WILL send feedback and especially if the Buyers are interested.
A couple of homes I was baffled why the Listing Agent had to be present. Maybe the Sellers made this request, or the Listing Agents make this request?
What is common in your area?
