I have been working with a buyer client recently and together we have viewed a number of homes. One of the homes that he liked is vacant, but still furnished. In the basement there is recreation room that has the heads of many different animals mounted on all the walls. An avid hunter owns this house!
As we looked around we came across an open storage area that was filled with a bunch of hunting equipment, including several rifles! They weren't even locked in a gun cabinet....they were just laying on some shelving! When I called the agent that afternoon to give our feedback, I told her we had found these guns. She thanked me for letting her know so that she could advise her seller to get them out of there.
We spoke a couple of days later and she told me she had talked to her seller about how unwise it was to leave these guns where someone could potentially steal them (or maybe borrow them, shoot someone, then return them). He was not concerned a bit, in fact he gave her a bit of a hard time about bringing it up to him. She tried to explain that she was just trying to prevent potential problems, but was not convinced that he took her advice seriously.
My client initially had some interest in this house (he is looking for a lease purchase deal), and the seller has indicated that he would consider it, but he wants more than my client thinks it is worth. The listing agent checks in with me every so often to see if my client has found anything, hoping he may come back to this house.
She called me this morning and told me that last week she took an agent caravan from her office to the house and when they got there they discovered the Supra keybox had been stolen. She had her key, so they were able to tour the home anyway. Saturday, the owner of the home stopped by and discovered that someone had been sleeping in the house! No one was there at the time, but it was obvious someone had been there. He is changing all the locks today!
She did not know if he had removed the guns, but can you imagine someone finding them and what could happen!
PLEASE REMEMBER THE IMPORTANCE OF KEEPING WEAPONS, MONEY, JEWELRY AND OTHER VALUABLES WHERE THEY CAN'T BE STOLEN!
