"I'm Mayhem, and I'm Your Worst Nightmare!"

Julia Vigneron Maher's post is worth sharing for all of us in this business.

We need to remember the ones who depend on us to protect them: the children.

It is well worth the effort to be proactive in these cases instead of reactionary later. Please share this insight with your friends and family who may be listing their homes.

"I'm Mayhem, and I'm Your Worst Nightmare!"

Mayhem

I like small children.

I surf the internet looking for them.

I don't have to bother with social networking sites.

I can use the MLS.

I know if it's a boy or a girl.

I know approximately how old they are.

I know their address.

 

I KNOW THEIR NAME!!!

 

I know they might respond to me if I call them by their name.

 

I'm Mayhem, and I'm your worst nightmare!

 

 

 

 

Parents, if your house is for sale, PLEASE remove any and all references to specific information regarding your children.  This may include name banners, awards, certificates, report cards, signs, etc.  Don't give Mayhem a chance with with your children!

Danger

Real Estate Agents:  Please encourage your listing clients to remove name signs such as the one above.  While charming, they could put a child at risk.  If the client won't comply, refrain from posting such photos.

This is one important piece of advice I give all my Connecticut Home Staging clients, and one that I would think all agents would too.  However, every day I see new listings posted on the MLS with this kind of blatant "invitation".  Let's keep the children's safety in mind!

Sad this is the world we live in but great advioce and a worthy reblog. As for those "mayhems" they will have long eternity of pain and tortue to contend with for their poor choices but does not negate being wise and proactive!
