One of the worst mistakes you can make is opening your home for public inspections. Open inspections can lower the price of your home and are an open invitation for criminals. Would you leave your front door open and allow a complete stranger to wander through? Do you really want dozens of strangers opening your drawers and inspecting your private possessions? Protect yourself, your family and your home. ‘Sticky-beaks’ and criminals will not buy your home. Only buyers will buy. Therefore, only genuine, qualified buyers should be coming through your home.
