Please Clean the Litter Box - At Least for the Cat's Sake
Much has been written about Sellers getting their home in shape for a showing by a prospective buyer. If you have read enough of those posts, then feel free to move on.
I was on a showing yesterday with a buyer. Based on the price, we did assume it would need some work so we were prepared - sort of. It was difficult to see beyond the laundry, dirty dishes, toys, shoes and other general clutter. The homeowner did have a couple of small children, so I suppose I could cut some slack. The cobwebs and dust were also a little distracting. But, I have three children so I do remember those newborn days when it is really difficult to clean.
However, when we went to the basement and saw the kitty litter box it looked (and smelled) like it had not been cleaned for several weeks (and there was only one cat to be seen in the house). Obviously, the owner did not understand the need to get the house ready for showing.
But forget about the buyer and the buyers agent, what about the poor cat?
