What to expect?
We will be putting our house on the market in the next few weeks and while I have sold several houses over the last few years, none of them have been mine or lived in, so this will be my first experience from that perspective.
To make things more complicated for showing, we have 2 dogs and I have a husband that works the mid shift ( works til 10 or 11 at night many days) and is a night owl. That means he is generally not up and moving around until 11 in the morning( and this we can not really change, that's his normal sleep cycle).
One of my dogs absolutely cannot be in the house while showing since she is unable to have rabies shots ( health issues) and it is far from ideal for dogs to be in the house anyways during a showing.
Would it hurt us too much to place a few restrictions on when the house is shown? Such as anytime after noon until 9pm ( how late do they show?) Also,I remember there is a time window they give when they call, would it be asking too much to have the buyer agent make a quick call directly to me about 10 minutes before arriving so I can get the dogs out with me ( since they are indoor dogs)?
