video taping home showings: Should A Listing Agent Disclose The Use Of Hidden Cameras? - 05/31/12 09:53 AM

If a seller can't physically be home to watch and listen in on a showing they have another option: secretly video tape the showing.
The sound of this makes me uncomfortable, pun intended.
 
What if a listing agent was aware of such devices? Should the Listing Agent be required to disclose the use of hidden audio equipment to any other Realtor who shows the property? The REALTOR Code of Ethics require all REALTORS to be fair and honest in their practices. And this includes ALL parties. But what if a seller directs their agent to "keep their lips shut."
