Safety Tips for home sellers who have young kids.
When you list your home for sale the agent will take photos of all the rooms.
Take down all photos of your young children especially infants and toddlers. You do not want their pictures showing up on the internet . You might want to request the agent not to take photo of the baby's nursery. There are plenty of other rooms that they can photograph.
Sometimes strangers may knock on your door when they see the 'For Sale' sign and ask to see the house.
Instruct them to call their agent or your agent to make an appointment to see your home.
If they say they are an agent , ask them to show their business card and do not let them in if they have not scheduled an appointment . If it is convenient for you to show when they do not have an appointment , ask them to call your agent first and then let them in so the agent knows about it.
If your home is located in a secluded area, be careful with open houses. It is better to have agents show the home to their clients. Strangers come to open houses .
Parents of young kids usually have activity schedules on the refrigerator. Please remove these as well. You should not let strangers see your schedules of when you will not be in the house. A home can be burglarized in just a couple of hours .
