Great to find this forum online. I’ve got myself in a bit of a pickle, and wonder if you can help.
I’m in the process of trying to move home, and the sale is taking a bit longer than planned. It’s still a couple of weeks until my confirmed sitters arrive, but - if our home hasn’t got an offer by then - it’ll be really helpful if the estate agents can bring people round during the housesit. The reason for the urgency is that we’ve had an offer accepted on another house, so need to get our skates on with the sale.
If the agents do need to come round, this shouldn’t be too frequent - maybe one person every couple of days - and the agents are very considerate, but it makes the sit a bit different from planned.
The sitters seem really lovely, and I’m planning to drop them a line to ask about this directly. Do other owners think that sounds reasonable, and do you think it’d be good to offer something in return, e.g. a voucher for a meal out?
I welcome your advice on this. Thanks so much. Fingers crossed that we get an offer ahead of the sit.
