Remember prospective buyers do open kitchen,
And bath cabinets/drawers, that is why we are
asking you to store valuables such as antiques,
coin collections, prescription drugs, etc. or any
items you may feel need to be removed from
prying eyes. This is also the reason we ask that
you make sure cabinets are clean, organized,
doors and drawers are in good working condition.
