Ms Property Melbourne’s Open For Inspection Tip 2

Tip two

Wear Comfortable Shoes

Socks or cold toes?

Are your shoes easy to get on or off?

Agents don’t care about your mismatched or holey socks. They care about the sellers who have worked hard to present their home for you. Also, no stilettos or sharp heels on polished boards please.

Unless you have a medical reason why you can’t remove your shoes then please remove your shoes if requested.

Shoes that require a seat and 10 minutes to take off and then put back on again are not practical for open homes. Think ahead. If you have plans before or after your Saturday home search

Kicking your shoes off – this might be okay at home but it’s not okay in someone elses. You may damage walls or even worse, glass!

Leaving your shoes in the doorway, again, you are not at home. Please don’t leave your shoes where someone may trip over them.

Leaving your shoes not undercover – a big lesson for winter. If it rains you may come back to soggy shoes. Ick!

Ask the agent if you can take your shoes with you. This is a good idea if you want to wander around the backyard. Strolling around in your socks means coming back inside with possibly dirty or wet socks, uncomfortable for everyone.

Requesting that buyers remove their shoes also gives agents an opportunity to chat with you as you leave the property. Be polite and at least say goodbye. Agents often wont want to engage you in a lengthy conversation or an in depth one. They will always be mindful of other ears hearing the conversation.

The agent will be giving the owner feedback straight after the open so if you are genuinely interested request a Section 32 or further information. It will give the owner a positive feeling and the agent is sure to remember you and keep you in touch.
