Safety tips for selling your home.
The Lawhead Team would like to share the latest “One Cool Thing” from CAR on safety when it comes to selling your home.
When selling your home, there are certain safety guidelines that should always be followed to keep yourself and others safe.
- Don’t forget to take your keys, credit cards, jewelry and other valuables form your home or lock them away for safety.
- Antique, rare or expensive home décor items also should be put away to avoid accidental breakage, or worse, theft.
- Remove prescription medications from medicine cabinets and bedside tables.
Firearms, knives (including those in a block in the kitchen), and other weapons should be removed from sight and locked away for safety reasons.
- Bills, invoices, credit card statements, mail and anything with your Social Security Number or other personal identifying information should be removed from view.
- Family photos and anything labeled with names also should be put away.
- Do not let strangers into your home if they do not have an appointment.
- All showings should be officially scheduled in advance through either your Realtor®, their office or another Realtor® who represents the buyer for safety reasons.
- Protect yourself from a liability standpoint by making sure that driveway and sidewalks are free of ice and debris.
- Also make sure all pets are secured at all times.
- Do everything in your power to ensure a prospective buyer is not in danger.
