Two Lockboxes on Every Listing? We Can Help!

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Moline Realty 40022101

I'm sure you've heard the news - now Fannie Mae wants not one but TWO lockboxes on every Fannie Mae listing.  Oh the woe!  Oh the terror!  Oh, the expense!

As you rush off to order yourself 40 quiksets, like I was looking to do, you may quickly find that they are on backorder.  A big backorder.  Fantastic.... now what?

Well, the Solomon family has a solution!  Custom built lockboxes by Little Mr. Solomon!

Solomon Lockboxes

Don't you feel like a fool now, discovering a not-quite-three-year-old can build them, and you've been paying the big bucks all this time to buy them?

The lockboxes are nice and roomy.  No more worrying if you can fit the 27 keys that you need for all the different padlocks and doors that someone just might want to enter that you have to secure because CERTAINLY people are going to be tresspassing in that falling in garden shed! Little Mr. Solomon happily demonstrates how a standard "tractor binky" (that grandma made!) can fit into his roomy, affordable lockboxes:

Look, it's so spacious!

It fits!  So will your 27 keys!

Plus they are guaranteed never to jam, and there's NO way a key is gonna get stuck in this thing! 

So order one (or 47, for all of your listings!) today!  Who needs quikset?  And the vendors can't use those expensive electronic lockboxes, so you're gonna need something that can be easily opened for maid service - why not Solomon lockboxes? 

Oh, you want a price, do you?  Is that all you think about?  I told you they were cheap - you really need specifics?  You don't just trust me and Little Mr. Solomon???  Well, one package of these blocks costs $12.99 and we can make about 8 lockboxes... plus Little Mr. Solomon would really like a college fund.  Let's say $15 per lockbox.  Where else are you going to find that kind of stellar deal???

Stress no longer about the two-lockbox-per-listing requirement from Fannie Mae.  We build these things in like 5 seconds, so we should never be backordered.  We do live a ways from town, though, and it will take Little Mr. Solomon quite a while to bike into the post office to mail them, so don't expect next day delivery or anything!

Yeah, but can property preservation figure out how to open the Solomon Box and then get it back together?

Joan - I like the price, too!  And if enough people buy them, I won't have to worry about the expense of adding a second lockbox to all of my listings!

Virginia - You gotta put those kids to work!  Especially when they come up with great ideas ALL. BY. THEMSELVES.  I was pretty impressed, personally!

Liz - You're asking a lot.... but considering the blocks are meant for ages 2 and up, I'm thinking they should be able to handle it... most of the time!

Kaera - He may be cute, but you better believe that kid has some wicked tantrums!  :-)

Lindsey - I think he's so funny.  I'm sure it was spurred by mom's frantic attempts to get into three lockboxes sitting on her desk with mystery codes.....

Suzy - Right here on the Rain!  If you could supply us with a large certified check, we'll get your order right out!  Ha!

Joslyn - I have four lockboxes with mystery numbers and they drive me crazy. The kids always take them and play with them. I figure it won't hurt because I can't get them open anyways!... If only I knew how to break the code.
