Southern Maryland Best Buys


Home buyers being photographed while viewing houses for sale

This is a really good point to discuss with Buyers before starting the showings lineup. I typically wait until we are outside the home to compare the home to the others viewed that day and to also rate the current favorite. But  sometimEs you forget this could easily happen. Wait to discuss outside!

Home owners recognize the importance of home security. In addition to the typical window and door alarms, some residents are using security cameras that have audio capability as well. The cameras can be used to show exterior and indoor activities. A few homes have cameras that cover every room and the garage.

Security systems may be monitored by remote computers which allow residents to check their homes from their office or tablet. It is a good way to keep an eye on home care providers and children.

Home buyers and their agents need to be alert to the presence of security systems because they may be photographed and their comments may be monitored by the home sellers.  Home sellers are able to identify those that may do damage to the property and hopefully will identify any with sticky fingers as they check for drugs or valuables in the home.

Showing agents may wish to advise clients to be careful with their remarks while viewing available properties. Home sellers may not wish to disclose that audio or video devices are present in the home.

Yes, security systems are intrusive. That is the idea.
