Honestly, I’d suggest messaging them directly immmediately through messages to tell them before the Welcome Guide. Esprcially since the sit is coming up soon and many form their plans around where theyll be sitting and may need to change things on their end if they no longer wish to sit.
They may not.mind at all, but these were things to tell a sitter before anyone considered qhether to accept or not.
Then, if you havent already, add notes on your listing about household renovations and that youre happy to discuss them (if this sitter cancels or for future needing of sitters).
Someone only finding these things out after accepting and then in a Welcome Guide so close to the sit puts them in a very awkward position socially, too.
Personally, the things you describe wouldnt put me off from sitting so long as all else was promising about the listing and speaking to the HO. I dont mind renovation ossies or household quirks, so long as within reason, as ive certainly dealt with my own in the past. Recently did a sit where the HOs were in the act of remodeling.
But let them know these details immediately rather than in setting up your Welcome Guide. Then be sure to have some mention of them in your listing so that the specifics get talked out during messaging.
Apologies if im misunderstanding and you already did these things and now are just feeling awkward in filling out your Guide.
If that, instead, is the case then dont be self-conscious. They already know youve these sort of quirks/issues with your home right now and have agreed that theyre fine with home renovation and similar odds and ends a home may have like that.
Getting into reminders on details is a huge help and not something to feel self-conscious over writing down.
Being able to look back at the Guide and being reassured something is normal for there when a sitter cant recall for sure is a huge help to us. I cant tell you how much i refer back to a Guide or hand-written instructions given to me by people even when I know i was told of something or how they want something done. It’s reassuring to be able to click back and go, “oh, okay, yeah, that was mentioned and is fine/I’m doing this right”.
