Illinois House Hunter: Rainy Day Real Estate

Illinois House Hunter: Rainy Day Real Estate

This post affirms that it is fine to ask people viewing one's home to remove their shoes.

Interestingly, it says that shoe covers are ineffective in wet weather, because mud and water can soak through or drip off the exposed part of the shoe.

When I eventually had to move out of my friend's flat she accompanied me to an agency to locate alternative accommodation.

The professionally dressed woman who dealt with me said there was a property she could show immediately. Since she was parked right outside and us some distance away she suggested we ride with her.

After ensuring my friend and I were both sat in the back and wearing seatbelts as requested, we set off and, a few minutes later arrived at our destination.

Ushered across a patch of grass rather than the roundabout path, we followed as the agent unlocked the door, picked up post and setted straight into the carpetted, but otherwise unfurnished, lounge: such was the design of the place. She made brief chat as she closed the door benind us, then stepped smartly out of her shoes and requested my friend and I do the same before viewing commence.

Especially sensible given you walked through grass.

Indeed. I did wonder if it was their standard practice or if it was just weather-related though.

Estate agents often offer to remove their shoes, but they tend to keep their shoes on if the property is vacant.
