This might seem like a trivial question but I really need your opinion. We have our home listed and with all of wet/winter weather we’ve been having I am really frustrated trying to keep our floors clean. Is it offensive to ask potential buyers to remove their shoes or wear booties when they look at our house? I don’t want to turn people away because of the annoyance of having to remove shoes or boots, but I don’t want my floors to look messy – or get stained!

Do not hesitate to request buyers remove their shoes or put on booties that you provide when they enter. This is not a turn off and any buyer who would be turned off by having to remove their shoes or put on booties…. Let them leave.
