Why does the homeowner have to be out to show it? Can’t you just bring your buyer buy and call it a “repair estimate”. Heck, that really is what your buyer is doing. Tell the homeowner it has to be done prior to closing. If the deal is good enough, you could even offer to pay the homeowner, but I would think that you could arrange for this repair estimate to happen real soon without having to go to that extreme.
