Is it too late to see that house?

A couple of weeks ago I received a call at 8:45 p.m. from a client to see a home. We were making an offer on the home and she wanted to show it to a friend.

Raises the question…even if the home is vacant, how late is too late to see a home that is on market? At that time the answer was 9 p.m. After this Sunday…Daylight Savings Time…the answer changes to 10 p.m.!

Before 8 am. is too early and after 10 p.m. is too late…even for vacant homes.

You can stay later than that…but you must enter by that time.

  1. It would have to be an existing client to show anywhere near 8pm. For a unmet the answer would be a no since I currently don’t have a CWP. Safety is to important to just meet people for the sake of meeting people. Personally, I enjoy waking up to each new day.

  2. It depends on whether or not you can trust the client and the neighborhood of the house. As long as you feel safe, and are not trespassing, then it seems fine to me. Could be the kind of thing that ends up being a good story for a blog or to tell a future client.
