One of the things I do as part of my job is to check on the condo building in Belmont Bay where Cindy Jones and CJ Realty Group have a few listings. It never ceases to amaze me, especially since the weather is cold, the number of times I go to check and find exterior doors wide open.
I'm certain that anyone would realize with the cold air blowing in that the door was still open. Yet it never fails that one of the units has the sliding door or a door from the bedroom to the deck left open. Sometimes I can hear a parent in the back of my head saying "were you raised in a barn?"
Do I need to clutter up the view of the marina and river with signs on the doors that say "please shut me?"
Fortunately this is a secure building and it would take a herculan feat for someone to scale back into the units later on but I can only imagine if the doors are left open here that there are other places, less secure where they are standing open as well.
Agents please make sure that you are checking that you have left a property secured when you leave. Think of the safety of the next agent that walks into that property. If you left the door open, who may come in after you and be laying in wait for the next agent?
