Even buyers need to keep safety in their minds as they look for their next home.
While not as involved as Seller or Realtor safety, there are a few very important points:
*Be careful of your postings to social media. Keep things in the friends only setting.
*Beware of those amazing for sale by owner listings you’ll see on Craigslist or other online sites. If something catches your eye, have your Realtor check it out first to make sure it’s a legitimate listing. (See “Rampant Scams”)
*Do NOT Do NOT DO NOT approach a home with a sign in the yard, and ask to view. Ever.
