I was driving around today, listening to John Tesh on one of the 80's, 90's and Today stations and heard something that I honestly had never thought about before.
You have decided to sell your home and you have cleaned, de-personalized and staged until you are finally ready to show the world the beauty of your home and why they should buy it. I bet there is one thing you never, ever thought to do before your open house......
LOCK UP YOUR MEDICINES, JEWELRY, CAMERAS, ETC.
Drug users and thieves will look at the open houses scheduled in a city or area and come looking like a prospective buyer. They will walk around looking for medications, valuables and anything they can stuff into their pockets and walk out with.
Please protect your home and keep a watchful eye on every person that enters it. If you have to, have a couple of friends or relatives in opposite locations to answer questions, guide them, etc. Please pass this along to friends and family to help them prepare for the unexpected.
