Another entry from the I’m not making this up department. Just came across a very high end listing and here is what what listed in the broker remarks. (special notes about a property for agents but not clients.) “2 very large dogs will be in closet- sign will be on closet door — do not open. 2 cats — do not let out.”

Mind you this is in small type on my listing page. Sometimes I’ll even forget my listing sheet in the car and we’ll just use the client version. A few questions…I wonder how big the sign is? I wonder how big the closet is? I wonder what happens if someone has a momentary lapse of reason and opens the door. (I know buyers who tend to overlook signs on doors, just one slip could cost you)…I know why the cats want to leave.

Tip to sellers: If you can afford a million dollar plus condo, you can probably afford a dog sitter when there is a scheduled appointment. Buyers don’t like closed doors and they especially don’t like closed doors with signs of life coming from the other side. It ruins the mood and they hurry out as if they are learning to fly.

You can knock at any door,
But wherever you go, you know they’ve been there before
Well winners can lose and things can get strained
But whatever you change, you know the dogs remain.
-Pink Floyd
