You know what I’m talking about right? You saw the Open House sign and wandered in. We chatted for a few minutes and then you set off to tour the the house. Though I wasn’t right on your tail I was watching you.
First you opened up the kitchen cabinets. Okay that makes sense as you need to see if there is enough space for your dishes. Then you opened the fridge and then the freezer. Guess you needed to size up whether the side by side had room for your frozen pizza.
You headed upstairs and made a beeline for the master bathroom. You looked under the sink, perhaps checking for any signs of a leak and then you opened up the medicine cabinet. This is when I started to get suspicious. But when you pulled opened the top dresser drawer you went over the line and I stepped in.
You stammered a bit about just trying to get an idea about space but guess what, the owner’s drawers aren’t relevant. If you had pulled out a tape measure to see if their dresser was the same size as yours that would be okay but looking through personal possessions are not. You said a few unkind words and headed for the door. That’s okay I know the difference between a serious buyer and someone who is just killing time.
I wonder when you go to a friend’s house do you wander around and look through their stuff? An Open House is not an invitation to snoop. Please remember that and show some respect for the owners.
