Open House Safety for Agents, Buyers, and Property Owners - The Real Estate Law Podcast Episode 8

Updated: Feb 4, 2020

In this episode of The Real Estate Law Podcast, we're talking about how to keep everything and everyone safe during an Open House.

How often do you open your front door to strangers, let them wander around your home, and check everything out (sometimes without supervision)? Not often, we would hope!

When you're buying or selling property, though, the rules are a bit different. While sight-unseen offers are common for investors, the vast majority of residential real estate transactions involve in-person tours, and frequently, Open Houses.

Realtors have many safety concerns when conducting Open Houses. We offer a number of ways to keep safe during this episode!

Learn all of this and more!
