I don't want to get into a gun debate, but I am interested in what you think about gun respect. It may be legal for me to walk into a sellers home locked & loaded, but will it offend them? If they knew I was showing their home armed to the teeth would it upset them? Should I care? I carry a weapon, esepcially if the home is vacant, in foreclosure or in some other type of distressed scenario. What about the the homeowners insurance and the sellers liability if I were to accidentially shoot my gun while in "their" home? So many things could go wrong.
Like many Realtors I have been in litereally thousands of homes in all types of price ranges and neighborhoods. Crimes happen everywhere. When it comes to listing a house it would be wise for the seller to convey their feelings about their home being a "gun free zone."
Property owners and managers may direct any person who is armed to leave their premises. The firearm owner must immediately comply with this order, irrespective of whether they have a CHL or not. Simply put, if someone in authority says, “you can’t carry a gun while you’re here,” then don't attempt to show the house while carrying.
In addition to abiding by the law, it is the responsibility of the buyers agent to follow the showing instructions by the listing agent.
