The owner of the apartment that I live in wants to sell the apartment. And she asked me if her realtor could come with potential buyers and take a look at it. However it is really annoying to me since I have two 1 year old children. I also plan to move out when my lease is up which will be in 6 months. So my question is can I tell the owner that obviously I dont mind her selling the apartment but I don't to want be disturbed by all these going in and out so it would be nice if she could process this sale without showing the apartment if it's possible.
Do you have a written lease agreement? If so, what does it say about lessor's right to show the apartment? Usually a lease will provide that the tenant will provide access to the property provided there is reasonable notice.

Under normal landlord tenant law, a landlord is allowed reasonable access to show a rental unit to prospective buyers. Buyers normally will not consider a purchase without being able to see the unit, so refusing to allow it to be shown at all, is probably a breach of your duties under Florida law as a tenant.
I agree with my colleagues and suggest that you try to work out an arrangement with your landlord to only show the apartment on specific days of the week and time of day. That way you can show you are being reasonable and your landlord can have the certainty of access to show the apartment.
