Realtor® Safety Reminder - Start 2020 with Safety in Mind At All Times

Realtor® Safety Reminder - Start 2020 with Safety in Mind At All Times

 

Realtor Safety FirstI recently received an email from a prospective new construction buyer. I could not get the buyer on the phone - he only wanted to meet 'on-site' and assured me "We will be paying cash." Because I couldn't get the gentleman on the phone, I made the decision not to pursue this online lead.

In today's MLS alerts, we were informed that, "...a new potential scam involving a person asking to see homes in new construction communities.  At the showing appointment, the person arrives with 12 additional individuals who are “family” and makes a cash offer on multiple homes with no proof of funds.  Eventually the person disappears."

While no one was injured or harmed other than to simply waste time, our Association encouraged us to review our safety protocol. I was thankful that everyone was safe & that I had not wasted my time pursuing this pseudo-buyer. I was confident that this was the same gentleman who had reached out to me - the story was simply too similar.

 

That said, I thought I would share one of NAR's safety videos as a reminder to be on your toes as we begin a new year.

 

 

You can never be too safe out there...
