There’s nothing quite as rude as someone not turning up for a viewing. If you have it happen several times then you need to speak to your estate agent and ask them to ring and confirm with people shortly before the viewing time to ensure they will turn up.
Sometimes people need a reminder! This is especially true if you book them a few days in advance.
So don’t be frustrated – you’ve tidied up, got rid of the kids for half an hour, so put your feet up with a nice coffee and relax.
Sometimes it might be that they have turned up and couldn’t find anywhere to park – a bad sign for car owners when picking a property and they may have gone away without knocking on!
Or maybe they viewed from the outside and didn’t like the neighbours? Either way it’s very rude of them to not let you or the estate agent know directly.
