I get asked this question frequently by my sellers that have schedule conflicts throughout the day whether they have children that take naps or are coming or going from school, or pets that need pet-sitters.
In many of these instances, our appointment is not with a buyer that is under my control, rather, it’s a Realtor booking a tour with his or her clients. Realtors often book their showings in Chicago every 15 minutes or so. Although I am perfectly happy to give a call or send the email with the schedule change request, if the other Realtor’s schedule is already confirmed, or their direction of travel does not permit the back-travel, we risk losing the appointment.
It’s a wise seller that will work with these requests as our showings are precious. I always want to be absolutely certain that my sellers want me to make the call or send the email which might risk the showing. I always strongly recommending that we be as accommodating as possible.
