Dangers of Having Strangers Viewing Your House
One of the hardest parts of selling your home is bringing in strangers into your home in the hopes of getting their interest to buy your home. There are many ways to do this, from having open houses to doing private showings. In any case, there are almost always some risks involved if you want to sell your home.
Most Common Risks of Having Showings
The process of selling your home is rarely easy when you do it with the traditional method of hiring a realtor or selling on your own. You will need to have strangers over. Below, we will break down some of the most common risks that we find from those who sell their homes after having several showings. Keep these in mind while deciding how you will sell your home.
1. People Come Intending to Steal
As sad as it may be, many people will only book a showing with you so that they can come and steal whatever valuable items that they can find. Since a typical showing will have several guests and only one or two people looking out for the property, things can often be very easy for thieves to steal without being detected.
2. You Are Not There Personally
If you are working with a realtor, you should be sure that you can trust them with your belongings. If somebody does come to your home and successfully steals something, you won’t be able to easily prove who did what. Remember that realtors are not trained detectives or anything remotely close to this. It is easy for a professional criminal to steal without the realtor noticing. If you aren’t there, then matters only get worse.
3. Damage to your Property
Let’s imagine that people are genuinely interested in buying your home and take the opportunity of a showing to do their own personal inspections. These can add up quite a bit over time and result in hefty damages to property solely because the person doing the inspection did not know what they were doing. It’s important to keep in mind that you might not be able to ever prove how the damage was done and be left with a large maintenance bill!
