Multiple Bad Reasons — and One Good One

Homes scheduled to be on Broker Tour ” at least in the Twin Cities, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. each Tuesday ” get cancelled for all kinds of reasons.

The Seller’s cleaner didn’t show up (or didn’t finish); someone in the household is unexpectedly home sick (Covid-19??); the master Bathroom plumbing sprung a leak; torrential rain the night before flooded (part of) the basement.

But, there’s really only one GOOD reason to cancel a Broker Tour: the home sold!

Especially if it went in multiples, it’s a good bet that all involved parties are exhausted, and not about to invite the world through on Tuesday (mask-wearing or not).

P.S.: That’s true even if the Purchase Agreement allows to the Seller to continue showing the home while the Buyer performs their inspection.
