Ok gonna vent a bit here. Just got a call from the buyers agent saying his buyers "contractor" and his clients were at the house that we have in escrow and he was on his way to meet them shortly and could I just give him my code so they could go in unaccompanied. NO!. First problem he is not with the buyers. Second problem I don't know who this buyers "contractor" is and if they have a license, or are any liability insurance. Last problem is that they felt it was Ok to just pop in unannounced since it was vacant and the only reason he called in the first place was to see if I would give him a code so they could troop around the house without any of us present.
It is my opinion that it is the sellers house (even when it is a bank) until the close of escrow and it is my responsibility to protect that house from damage, No one cares if the contract states that the buyer will step up to pay for and hold the seller harmless if damage is done during an inspection, you can not get blood from a stone. If the "contractor" is not one, or if he has no insurance and causes damage or gets injured on the property then we all GET TO GO TO COURT, Not my goal, ever.
Buyers agents please call and make appointments to go to the property with the listing agent even when it is in escrow. That is the professional way to do business. Listing agents pull your lockboxes immediately when the offer is accepted and make them go through you for entry and they you can decide if you want to be present. It is my decision how I will run my business not yours and I have the right to expect you to make an appointment each and every time you go to the house. Sorry if that messes up your busy schedule but I really think we are never too busy to be courteous and professional.
Also please remember wether the house is occupied or vacant it does not belong to the buyer until it closes. The seller has the right to their privacy and to protect their asset.
