Sometimes when showing a home I can't help but think some sellers have to be intentionally trying to sabotage their sale!

Here's a collection of some of my favorites. Enjoy!
Top 5, Sure Fire, Ways to Sabotage the Showing of Your Home
Number 5 - Break out a nice, big hunk of catfish. Fry it up about a minute before we are scheduled to arrive. Mmmmmm, mmmmm good! Serve it up with a nice Chianti.
Number 4 - Walk the dog.... in the livingroom! Nothing says home more than a big steaming pile of puppy poop! And for you cat lovers... Litterboxes are overrated!
Number 3 - Don't get up! Stay right where you are. Don't you dare let the potential buyers of your home interrupt your phone call! We all want to know what your no good, dirty, low down turd-of-a-husband was up to last night!
Number 2 - Let the buyer's really get a realistic idea of how functional the bedrooms are. Please don't wake anyone up!!! We'll tip toe around them!
The Number 1, sure fire way to sabotage the sale of your home....
