When you put your house on the market for sale, you’re inviting friends and strangers into your sanctuary. Realtors showing the home to prospective buyers do all we can to insure things don’t go missing, but it’s important to protect yourself. Here are some tips to keep yourself and your identity safe.
Don’t take a chance. Remove the following from the home:
Passports, checkbooks, tax records, any personal paperwork.
Precious items such as jewelry and small valuables that can easily placed in a pocket or purse.
Valuables such as cameras.
Firearms and ammunition.
Once your property has been shown, walk through the home to check windows and doors to be sure they’re locked.
