Good morning Michael. If it has to be put into writing there is a big problem, a little common sense would go a long way.

"In Writing?????" That's a bit overboard.

I simply advise the homeowner whatever exists on the sidewalk and yard will find it's way into the house.

I further advise that clean sidewalks, porches and yards are BEAUTIFUL!

UGH! It might be helpful for the buyer's agent to say something to the listing agent- so the listing agent can use some leverage with the seller.

That request is not so much a requirement, but a recommendation to attract higher offers from more buyers. I understand your pain.

I would hope the Seller's agent would notice this in their first visit and ask the Sellers to address on an ongoing basis.  If a Seller is that rude to ignore its exterior (during a home sale), then I would question the condition of the interior.

I haven't had to resort to putting it into writing yet, Michael.  But, I would if it became an issue.

Not in writing.  If they choose not to pick up there is no one who can tell them what to do, it's their house.

As a listing agent i have to pass on feedback and remonders to owners some time. When offers come in, yes some state yard free of poop at closing.

I have not seen it but if I were the buyer agent and my clients would want to amke an offer I would probably request it in writing.
