Take Your Shoes Off .. Not Always an Easy Request!

Take Your Shoes Off .. Not Always an Easy Request!


Today Alan May wrote about removing shoes at a listing.  Thought I would share how I, a listing agent, have solved this dilemma.

Take Your Shoes Off...Uh Uh...Not Going to Happen! When  I called to make an appointment to show a client a property, the service said, "Remove your shoes, make sure  all the lights are off and the doors are locked."  No problem...of course I will follow instructions.

When we got to the home, it was filthy with cats using the entire house as a litter box.

As we enter, another sign stating "please remove shoes" greeted us. ...uh uh not going to happen!  

When HomeRome Realty  lists a property and  the carpet or hardwood floors need protecting, there is no shoe removal request for agents or buyers..not even in inclement weather.

There is a much better solution using an automatic shoe cover dispenser like the one in the photo.

It looks nice in the property and it saves everyone, including the kids, the inconvenience.  It is easy and fun to use. Just step gently in the box and voila... a plastic covering is elastically wrapped around the bottom of your shoe. Some people have trouble removing shoes, especially those with mobility issues and tied laces.

Have this handy dispenser at the doorway, easy to step in, no bending or removing shoes. It also works in your own home when you are having work done. How many plumbers, electricians, roofers etc...will take that time to remove the work boots?
