    I live in Alabama and have hired a real estate agent to sell my home. My agent has informed me of an advertised open house but indicated that the only way my home can be included in the tour is if I agree to "man" my own open house as they can not be there. According to a family member that is illegal, because the home is occupied and for liability purposes the agent has to be there. Is this illegal or not?

    Thanks for any responses

    It's not the agent's responsibility to be there for the open house unless they are paid to do so with a certain rate (daily, hourly, during the entire duration).

    For more information on real estate matters, contact Dameri and Trexler. They offer homes for sale El Dorado Hills and more. See
