WHY ARE THERE STILL COMBO LOCK BOXES ON OCCUPIED HOMES OR ANY HOME FOR THAT MATTER?? If you only realized how easily access to your home can be gained with this method…
Below is an illustration of the differences between the electronic key box and the combination lock box. When you are selling your home- the public is being invited inside. The best protection we can give that situation is to control and monitor the access by restricting it to persons that are LICENSED to provide that access. And that is why we ALWAYS provide an electronic key box for our clients.
|Purchase or Lease from the Board of Realtors||Buy one anywhere|
|Can only be opened by a licensed agent or vendor that is a member of the Board of Realtors and is in “good standing”||Anyone can open|
|Logs Showings with date/time and Broker/Agent information||Not capable|
|Alerts Listing Agent when accessed||Not capable|
|Can be programmed to restrict showings by time||Can be opened whenever by whomever|
Our advice is to allow the lock box to determine who gets inside (NOT YOU) because the most unsafe thing you can do is open the door yourself. Insist that your agent provide an electronic lock box and then be gone for showings.
If you are considering a move we would love the opportunity to meet with you and go over our marketing and showing strategy for optimum results!
