I’m getting ready to head out and show properties in the Woodbridge and Dumfries area. Going through the MLS to see whether I need to call the Centralized Showing Service (CSS), call for a combo or if the property is secured by Sentrilock.
What I find is a listing with the following comment: “back door is open, vacant property go and show.” For me that just screams LIABILITY! First of all how secure do I feel walking into a property that is unsecured. Second if the property is damaged how would the agent know who might be responsible…fingerprints?
If you are a homeowner you may want to ask the agents you are interviewing to list your property how they plan on protecting your home. If their answer is to leave the door unlocked you might want to say NEXT!
