Safety Tip #49
Don’t use the “v word”
When describing a listing, never say that a property is “vacant.” This may be an invitation to criminals.
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.
