Showing Homes Bring Your Pepper Spray! RE Agent Attacked when showing a home!

By
Real Estate Agent with Allison James Estates & Homes 01079287

Like our job isn'thard enough with Short Sales, REO, dealing with the public etc. Put a weirdo in the mix and there you go, RE Agent attacked, bound and kidnapped. I have heard about this since day one always let someone know where you are going and who you are meeting with.

And buyers get upset when they want to see a house right now, but I need to know who you are! My favorite is I am an all cash buyer period, are you gonna show me the house or should I call someone else? Bottom line you can never be too careful. Bring the pepper spray!

A man who posed as a home buyer pleaded guilty this week to sexually assaulting a real estate agent in Great Falls, Mont.

Bradley Joseph Crisman, a 21-year-old former airman from Malmstrom Air Force Base, could face from four years to life in prison for attacking the real estate agent.

Police say Crisman pretended to be interested in purchasing a home in the area and asked the real estate agent to meet him at a house for sale in the area. Crisman admitted in court to then tying up the agent when she arrived at the home. According to police reports, Crisman allegedly put a knife up to her throat and made a threat to her life.

Crisman’s sentencing is set for April 10.

Realtor simple guideline to guesstimate a Homes values! Comparing apples with oranges? How to set values for embellishments? Do you think the old adage of Value equals Location, Location, Location, is true? Views, Pools, special interest additions can add desirability, and then Granite Counters, Travertine flooring, condition, square footage and any embellishments, upgrades, updates you can add to a property is worth 60-70% of the cost. This value will also be depreciated over time. Example would you consider if a twenty year old solid oak cabinette's
value even in good condition is equal in value to cabinets in the newer current color, or are they? Objective would be desirability.

Location is the basis for value. Like Homes within a one mile radius share values, and can be evaluated by sales per square foot within the last 3+ months. Pulses
