Garage Sale Safety

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with WHISPERING PINES REALTY 20398180

De-clutter we tell our clients.

have a sale and get rid of stuff you don't want and or need.

 

But do we talk a bit about safety?

This just happened over the weekend.

A couple having a sale were in the detached garage. Several people in one car stopped.

Couple of them kept the husband and wife busy and one stepped aside and went into the UNLOCKED home.

Medication, money and jewelry were missing.

 

Having more than one person is smart, but you really need to lock the house doors.

Secures all of your possessions and stops anyone casing the inside or worse!

Good point William Feela. We talk about "buyer beware" but sellers must be aware also.

William,

Wow, you make an excellent point with that story. The door to our house would be locked anyhow.  It is when we are outside.  A

I doesn't take very long for things to go missing does it? Good reminder to be careful.

You would not want to think this to be an issue.

Stealing is also an issue.
