selling property: Please Leave! 5 Reason's to Hit the Road when your House is being Shown - 12/11/09 04:46 AM
 
If you have your home listed for sale and I show up with a potential buyer...please leave!  Go for a walk with dog, take the mail up to to the corner or go for a ride in your car.  Nothing shortens up the time a prospective buyer(s) will spend in a home than the homeowners being home...even the quiet ones who sit in the den and try to blend in with the proverbial woodwork (and you know who you are!)

In other words, the seller is "under water".
