MAKE YOURSELF INCONSPICUOUS
If you are at home when a salesperson comes by with a buyer, always ask for a business card before allowing them into your home. After you have made proper identification, make yourself inconspicuous (go outside, to the garage, run an errand).
TURN ON THE LIGHTS
Leave certain lights on during the day. During showings, turn on all lights and lamps.
Have soft music on during the days of all showings.
IT’S THE LITTLE THINGS
Turn TV off, pets out, all beds made, open drapes, toilet lids down, etc.
