Why is someone taking a picture of my house?

By
Real Estate Agent with The Edge Group LLC 1298065

I have had a few of my clients call me lately in a fluster saying that someone is taking a picture of their home and they are concerned and upset as they were not told this was going to happen.

Usually the person that is taking a picture of your home is an Appraiser doing a drive by Appraisal or a Realtor doing a BPO (Broker Price Option). Most of the time this happens when you are behind on your mortgage and trying to do either a Short Sale or a Loan Modification. In most cases this happens in the latter stages of the Short Sale or Loan Modification process and is usually a good sign that everything is in process and you will most likely get an answer on you Short Sale or Loan Modification soon.

There are many reasons that someone may be taking pictures of a house we have for sale. We can't predict, control, or even know in advance about most of them.

I've had that call too! It was an appraiser taking a photo of the front of the house for comps on another one of my pending sales. I reassured the homeowners who it was and all was fine. Aren't we all on Google Earth anyway? :)

One other possibility is the county tax assessor updating records.
