During a recent Continuing Education class, one Realtor was saying that he thinks that an agent showing a house should leave the house exactly as it was when they came in. He felt that they should leave the lights on and everything exactly the same. He said that you should do that in case there is another showing right after yours.
I have always felt that lights should be turned off, when I am finished showing a house. I worry about the seller who set the house up and then won’t be back for hours. I worry about electricity bills and making sure that the seller knows someone was there. I *REALLY* worry about candles that are lit and always make sure to blow them out.
So, IF you were selling your house, which would you prefer?
