Be sure to have booties available.  Some people are apprehensive of taking their shoes off for potential health reasons.

I think footies would be the thing to have available, or cancel the open house especially on a rainy, windy day. It really depends where it is. In Hawaii, people are used to taking their shoes off at the front door.

At one sunny summer open house one person refused to cooperate(6,200 sf gla estate) and booties & chairs are ready.  She made some remark that she wore high heel at her home..  I had to escort her out of the estate threaten to call cops.. Had two buyers from 20 groups at only showing. Do not need these people.

Interesting, as I have not had that happen yet Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Call 631-805-4400 (c).  In our niche, we always have a chair by the door so it's easier to put on those 'blue' shoe covers, as not all older folks have great balance nor can easily reach that far while standing (so techically they are not removing shoes).  I can't imagine why some would refuse, unless if it was 'too much' of an inconvenience?!

You won't enter my house with shoes on. We prefer a clean, sanitary home.

But, if they left over refusal to remove them, they were rude, not you and no, they were not buyers. Few who attend open houses are.

Yes.

I will not remove my shoes for any reason, however valid the subject may be.

ON rainy, windy and snowy days. the agent or owner is responsible for taking the necessary precautions. In my ride I carry large towels in the event a door mat is needed. I also carry booties for those special occasions.

Take my shoes off! Not in this lifetime.

Arethose making such request real sellers or is the step one in negotiation, get the buyer jumping through hoops as soon as possible?
