Buyers try sleepovers

July 16, 2008 09:31AM

With viable buyers becoming harder to find, some sellers are going all out by allowing sleepovers. As a sort of test-drive for a new home, brokers have started letting clients spend more time in prospective homes. Buyers average three or four visits to a prospective home before even making an offer, and brokers say a sleepover can push a buyer to make an offer. But it can also send them packing, as both negative and positive aspects of a home come to light during the night.
