Just Jiggle It????

Real Estate Agent with Smart Green Realty

Showing homes to buyers is tough enough when the keys work. But when the listing agent leaves a copy of a copy of a copy? And the key is really tough....Gad. Buyers really hate standing around while agents fiddle with keys. After 15 years, I practically have the touch of a safe cracker, but some keys are just so poor. On two different showings last week, I could not work they key in the front door but luckily, I successfully used the keys on the back doors. At another house, we just had to skip the showing because the key would not turn. What a waste! On my listings, I personally pay to have the locks re-keyed if the keys don't work easily. It is critical that showings are easy and seamless.

You are sooooo right about bad keys when trying to show a property. I try to have a sense of humor, not always possible though.
