Dear Realtor

Yes, I realize there is a For Sale sign in front of our house, and we are listed in the MLS. This means that you can come and show our house to your clients. I also realize that this is a tough time to sell a house, and we should welcome any buyer that wants to take a look.


because we still live here, is it asking too much to:

1. Leave a card if you come by? It's obvious you are here because doors are closed that are usually left open and lights are turned off/on that weren't off/on when I left earlier. This allows us the peace of mind that it was you and not a complete random stranger with no permission at all to wander through our house

2. Leave the key in the lock box and not in the door itself? Enough said on that one.

3. Call before you come instead of just showing up at our front door? We'd like for it show it's best, and since we do live here, sometimes it's just not good to randomly stop by.

4. Come if you are going to say you are going to come by in a set time frame? If you say you are going to come, we leave and find something to do. It can be frustrating to pick up and leave and then you don't even come in (or maybe you did, see #1).

Thank you,
Owner who is really getting fed up with points 1-4.

I really want to put our house on the market, and this makes e nervous. Where are you moving?

Are you downsizing or upsizing or leaving the area. And leaving the key in the door!??! CRAZY!
