Real Estate Agents: The lockbox when selling a home

Real Estate AgentsIt is highly recommended to homeowners to not be present when a Realtor is showing their homes for sale to a potential buyer.

The buyer must feel comfortable in there, feeling that this home looks like the one he was dreaming of for months. 

If you are there as the homeowner, in a way or another, it’s like interfering with the buyer’s dream. Buyers, especially first-time homebuyers, need to visit the house without the pressure of having the owners in there, when this house is supposed to be their future residence. 

So, this is one of the reason why the lockbox is only available for Real Estate Agents. But, what is a lockbox?

It’s an empty metal box that is mostly attached to the front doorknob or any other protected place. There is another box inside the main box and that’s the lockbox where the keys of the house are in.

There are some current lockboxes  with  a little microprocessor inside  that only works with an electronic key. These keys are only obtainable by Real Estate Agents members of the Multiple Listing Service  ( MLS ). These keys have an exclusive and inimitable  identifier.

This means that when the box has been unlocked, the microprocessor registers the agent who opens it as well as the date and time he goes in.

All this together is also considered as a homeowner security. However, you need to think about the main reason of the lockbox. It is to sell a property.

A lockbox, whether is the traditional key or the electronic one, makes the showing of a home for sale go smoothly.
