Open House attendees in Great Falls Montana must now present I.D. and sign in.

Open House in Great Falls Montana

The Real Estate market continues to be stable in Great Falls MT and folks are out shopping for homes.  Open Houses continue to be popular in Great Falls, and a great way for potential buyers to preview homes and get out of the house on a Sunday afternoon.  However as with anything that involves the general public, problems can arise.

 Open House Great Falls Montana

For the Safety of our fellow Realtors, and for the Home Owners, we are now requiring that everyone who attends a Dahlquist Realtors Open House in Great Falls Montana show ID and sign in.  Please do not be offended when asked by the host to do so.  If this was your home, you would want the same.  

You can still Opt-Out of being contacted after the Open House, but we must know who has entered the home.  Your information is not sold or shared with anyone.  If you still choose not to provide ID or sign in, you can opt to not see this particular home at this time.  Get together with a Realtor and schedule an appointment to view it later.

We appreciate everyone's understanding and cooperation in this matter.

So how is the new "Show ID" policy working out at your open houses. Please give us some feedback on the new policy. Curious to see how the Open House attendees are reacting.

We are just implementing this new policy, so I don't have a lot of feedback yet.  So far, most attendees, especially the ones that are seriously looking, are understanding once we explain to them why we have adopted this policy.  However, there are always a few that are upset.  

I have utilized a similar policy in Property Management for years now in addition to having them fill out an application to see the property.  If they are serious about looking and have nothing to hide, they will comply.
