When you're out with your favorite buyer broker checking out houses, do you go beyond the house?
I've seen buyers open drawers. OK, if you're opening drawers to the kitchen cabinets to see if they are dovetailed or not, it's fine. But if you are opening drawers to the bedroom dresser is a major NoNo!
Opening closets to see if they'll hold your impressive wardrobe is fine. Opening the doors to the antique armoir in the master bedroom is not OK. It will be moving out along with the buyers.
Many of the homes you'll see will be vacant, but others are still someone else's home. And for the sellers, living in their home while it's on the market can be a massive invasion of privacy.
And when you turn your attention to things that don't convey with the house - furniture, photos, books, shoes and clothing - it's just, well, rude!
