I read a blog this weekend in which the writer highlighted the possibility of inviting prospective buyers to sleepover and spend the night. This is something I've never thought of ... but something I certainly would NOT recommend.
An article appeared in the July 15 edition of Realtor Magazine (based on an article from the Wall Street Journal) suggesting that Buyers ask for a sleepover if they're interested in a house. This sounds like a Realtor's version of "Goldilocks and Three Bears" which I think could only lead to all sorts of problems.
Imagine the potential legal problems that an owner or agent could expose themselves to.
The article suggests that a legal contract be drawn up prior to confirming such an arangement. I wonder how an agent's Errors and Ommissions insurance would be effected by such a plan, not to mentions the potential insurance liability of the Seller.
