It Was A Vacant Townhouse!

Just wanted to share a great post written by Margaret Rome. It is so funny but it should make you all think about who might be in a vacant house when you go inside to show. I teach a Realtor Safely class and no one worries about their safety until they get scared.

Stop by and say hello to Margaret.

          It was a vacant townhouse.  Here's the showing instructions:

''Agents make sure all the lights are off, all doors locked and  turn off the alarm. Remember to lock and re-alarm when you leave.''

I arrive at the house before the buyer, knock on the door, open the lockbox, remove the key, unlock the door, turn the alarm off, turn the lights on..well a couple were already on.

Then I checked the house and went into the family room area......and saw her!

 I excused myself, saying..." I did not think anyone was at home."

 She was very quiet so I knocked on the door entrance...still no response. No movement...she was very still!

I walked around to her side and she was holding the sign facing the sliding glass door to the outside.

                                         

 

                                              Holy....!!! ( EXPLETIVE DELETED)

This is the most creative security system I've seen in a long time. When I introduced my buyer to the "guard" he got quite a chuckle. Must admit I was a bit startled at first.

What unique security systems have you seen while showing property?

No One Was Supposed to Be Home! After all...it was a vacant townhouse.

Hi Jon,

Yes she looked mean until she turned around. Those metal signs could hurt too! Everyone needs to be careful especially when they assume the house is empty which is not always the case.
