Asking for Advance Notice of Showings?
While I'm pretty sure it is common for sellers to ask for advanced notice before showing their home...I'm not sure how much advanced notice they usually ask for. What is common? What is ideal?
When I sold my first home, I think my realtor asked for 1 hour. (I had a buyer within 2 weeks.) But I was single with no kids then, so getting advanced notice wasn't a big deal. This time I have kids and it'd be helpful to get some advance notice but at the same time I don't want to ask for too much advance notice so as to not discourage potential buyers from looking.
How often to buyers actually give the requested advance notice?
