All of us need to be more careful and safe in our Real Estate business. Safety first should be one of our basic business operating proceures. Kathy's post below applies to staging as well as when you are selling your home. A child's safety always should have a very high priority. Please stopby Kathy's site and leave comment and follow her if you do not already do so.

Protecting Your Child’s Privacy

If you’ve placed your house on the market then you’ve been told by your agent, your friends, your home stager, and the cable television shows home staging tipthat you need to remove personal photos.

However, besides removing your personal photos, there is another category of personal items that you should remove for your child’s protection.

These are items that have the name of your child on it.

This includes the cute plaques that I see in a child’s bedroom, bean bag chairs with a child’s name, bath towels, pillowcases…anything that would give a stranger who enters your home information about your child.  

Removing photos of your children, not only allows buyers to see it as their future home and not feel as if they are intruding in someone’s space, but it also helps to protect your child's identity.

The same is true of monogrammed items and anything else with their name on it.

So please, if you are selling your house, take this one extra staging step to protect your children.

This is a great choice for a re-blog... We have no way of knowing who might be viewing the online photos and it's best to do all we can to protect the identity and location of children...

Bob,

I am glad you chose to reblog this Kathy Streib post.  We have friends in the movie biz.  He is a character actor and not well known to the public at large.  When they were selling their home, they give their listing to an agent with the promise that it would not show up on the MLS.  They had two gorgeous little boys, and did not want anyone to know where their bedrooms were or their address.  And they did de-personalize their home from all photos!  A
