With the hustle and bustle this time of year, its easy to lose a safety focus. SafeShowings has just a few reminders to keep top of mind now and always. Guide your selling clients to think about the following:
- If you display gifts under the tree or other, keep them out of view and away from windows.
- Make copies of a house key for family, friends, or leave with a neighbor. Do not hide a key outside.
- Do not make announcements on social media that a home is vacant or ready to be occupied (clients may have already moved or are traveling).
- Clients should tell a neighbor or friend when they’re going to be out of town. Let them know your real estate plans (open house, showings, staging).
As we continue to focus efforts on changing the safety standards in the real estate industry, from all of us at SafeShowings, Happy Holidays!
