Safety Tip #47
At an open house, be alert to visitors’ comings and goings, especially near the end of showing hours. Police have reported groups of criminals that target open houses, showing up en masse near the end of the afternoon. While several "clients" distract the agent, others go through the house and steal anything they can quickly take.
All tips are taken from NAR's REALTOR® Safety Resource Kit. Direct your members to your own association website or to NAR's safety web pages at www.REALTOR.org/Safety for more information on the important topic of REALTOR® safety.
