Awoke to find an email from a Selling agent for one of our listings recently inspected. He announced...without verifying with us ...a long list of contractors...several duplicated in the same trade....and the times over the course of days that the would have appointments to inspect their area of speciality.
The house is vacant...which is not the point. We don't have inspectors or contractors typically go into any listing...vacant or not withoug being accompanied by an agent. Betting that the agent is not taking a whole day to sit at the house and observe the parade...and has not asked if we are available for such a lengthy task.
When an inspector points out areas of concern in a report, typically, the Buyer's agent arranges...after consulting with the listing agent for a contractor to thouroughly evaluate an area and make recommendations to repair or replace whatever it is that is a concern. Some of these concerns we know to be covered under warranty and the parade may well not be necessary IF there are repairs or replacements that may be required.
Assume....such a dangerous thing...assume that without asking...anyone at any time can enter a home. Everyone has had the contractor who....left the ....lights on...door unlocked...the window open...etc., etc. We are vigilant about checking a home ...especially one that is vacant for any such issues.
Consideration...good manners...treating others and their property the way you would expect, like, deserve to be treated...goes such a long, long way in making communication and a transaction run smoothly. Assuming you know anything...without finding out both sides of everything...a dangerous and disruptive thing to do.
If you or anyone you know is looking for Realtors who work hard at being considerate of people's time...and their property...call the Hansons, we are honored to be of service.
