Be aware when you’re house is listed!!

November 8, 2011

Over the last couple of months, 2 friends of my mom’s have had expensive jewelry stolen by what looks like a potential buyer. One friend had their house listed By Owner, the other with an Agent.

Whatever the case ALWAYS MAKE SURE BUYERS COME WITH AN AGENT or DON’T leave them alone to roam your house!!!

The first robbery was by a middle aged couple posing as buyers. While the man asked for help measuring the living room, the woman asked if she could walk around the house again (on her own). After they were gone, the homeowners realized they’d been robbed.

The second robbery was by 2 men…..the knocked on the door, said they were just driving by & saw the sign, asked if they could come in. The homeowner let them in – they basically did the same thing….got the seller busy with questions while the other walked alone into the bedroom and robbed the homeowner.

We don’t need to be skeptical of all people, just be aware. Also, while your house is on the market, put expensive items in a safe place!!

If I can be of any help in So Cal, please don’t hesitate to call!!
