As we sometimes encounter in our profession, one of our agents recently had a strange showing experience with some potential buyers. This couple acted very oddly from the moment they stepped into the home and really created suspicion with their comments. Fortunately, our agent knew that there were steps she could take to notify us of her concerns. We had discussed a plan with our agents in advance and brainstormed on various ways that they could let us know if they ever felt concerned for their safety. Her gut instinct was to react with caution and she changed her showing routine and immediately put up her guard. The buyers have some potential interest in the property, they might just be rather "unique", but it was enough for her to fear for her safety. Her experience reminds us how important it is to take precautions when meeting with customers. It's important to have a "distress" plan in place and to always be aware of signs of potential trouble. Always put your safety first, listen to your instincts, and if you're not comfortable find a way to cut short the appointment and leave. It's better to lose a potential sale than to risk your safety.
