Should i hire a babysitter for the home buying process?How many events/meetings etc during the home buying process are inappropriate/inconvenient to bring a small child with you to? We plan to house shop next spring and this will be our first time so we are pretty clueless. We have never hired a babysitter and have no one to watch our 3 year old so i am wondering how many things would be a challenge bring her with us to? I'm guessing probably applying for a loan and also closing wouldn't go well with her around? I'm imagining that house hunting itself might be a challenge with her along? She is extremely well behaved but anxious of strangers and can be clingy as a result which might make it hard for me to really concentrate. We can hire a sitter but I'd rather not unless we have to. No one has watched her yet except family.October 09 2012 - Portland00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
