One of the most troubling “new attitudes” in the real estate arena is the notion that any house that is listed is open and available to be viewed WITHOUT a real estate agent present.
I get call after call from potential buyers that tell me that they are either looking in the windows of one of my listings or are actually INSIDE the home.
A “For Sale” sign is not an invitation to enter a property. Many lookers have no qualms about trespassing; some even go so far as breaking and entering.
Many callers ask for the code to the lockbox. I use electronic lockboxes on every house and I tell the prospect that the property must be viewed only when accompanied by a real estate agent.
Often they are surprised and shocked to learn that there are procedures in place for viewing and purchasing real estate and that we insist on compliance.
There is a phone number on the sign to call BEFORE entering the property, not after!
It’s the right way to see property!
