Ever hear of the old Call the police on the Realtor trick?

You said you wanted some excitement? I Show up at a new listing. Home is vacant. I walk around this Manchester NH area home taking picture of the outside. I trudge through the near 2 feet of snow to the door, unlock the lockbox and go inside. I walk through the home, taking pictures of every room and making notes of what it needs. Some time passes and i see men out the rear, to the side and coming up the walk. I go to the front door, see it is a police officer and open the door telling him who i am. Boom, bang, shuffle, "CODE 4 it is the Realtor."

 

 

Let's see: Well dressed, clip board, camera, lock box... and the neighbor calls the police for a robbery in process.

 

Most neighbors ignore what is going on when a house is being stripped of copper or vandalized. So i was grateful for a neighbor looking out for the home.

 

The lead officer was nice, understanding and I thanked him. Those yelling....... well, it wasn't needed.... The lead officer thanked me for coming out and identifying myself from the start. They had a chuckle, I got high blood pressure. 

 

 

 

IN THE END this is not just a job it is an adventure.  With a marketing plan in place, market analysis complete, cleaning crew hired.... This home will be available to see soon and will not take me long to get it under contract.

 

And how was your day?

At the very least you were not held down, shackled until they found you to be ok.

No one ever thinks that will happen in real estate Jane Chaulklin-Schott , but i was happy the neighbors were alert, but the response was a little over kill. Happy i had been through it listing many REO homes and knew what officers like, that is move slow, hands in open and immediately identify myself as a Realtor and why i was there.

Funny you say that Wanda Kubat-Nerdin as in my own neighborhood, a nice suburban area, i came home for lunch, heard a racket outside, looked to see 4 young kids climbing a garage roof to break in the neighbors. I got a hold of the police and kept a watch on them. They could not get in and ran across the street smashing another window just as the police showed to catch them all. Glad i came home and was alert.
