When preparing your home to show potential buyers, be sure you’re not leaving yourself vulnerable to identity theft. Although most people who come through your home have honest intentions, it’s still important to take precautions against those rare few who don’t. Here are some tips to keep your identity safe:
1. Don’t invite thieves
Remove those invitations and school calendars stuck to the front of your fridge. They broadcast times when you may not be home.
2. Lock your docs
Were you reviewing your bank statement just before a showing? Don’t forget to secure official documents such as passports, checkbooks and statements in a locked drawer or cabinet before leaving.
3. Screen your visitors
Be sure to add password protection to computers, laptops and tablets. It’s best to log out of your devices and unplug your computer.
4. Send your mail elsewhere
Remember – your junk mail can be a treasure to someone trolling for keys to your identity. After all, those annoying credit card offers contain all the information a thief needs to activate a fraudulent account. After sorting your mail, promptly shred anything you no longer need.
5. Be careful with catalogues
Periodicals contain more information than you might want a potential visitor to know. Make a habit of tearing off address stickers, and hide any publications that identify your affiliation with a certain organization.
6. Take your medicine – somewhere else
Prescription bottles have all kinds of information you don’t want to share with strangers, including your insurance policy number and doctor’s name. Hide your prescriptions very well, or even better, lock them up during showings to ensure no one takes your pills or your info.

Zillow Group and RE/MAX Kick off New Phase of Collaboration
Source: RE/MAX News
In real estate there are so many moving parts spinning in motion behind the scenes. You could have the buyer’s agent, seller’s agent, buyer, seller, tenant, landlord, title agent, lender, insurance provider, home warranty rep, home inspector, contractors, attorneys, surveyors, appraisers, family relatives etc. and the list goes on. Any one of these players can stir the pot on a moments notice and send blood pressure readings through the roof.
When this happens we all have a choice to make. We can meet them at their level OR choose to rise above and redirect our energy towards a peaceful resolution. In every case that I’ve intervened with over the years, the answer was not far away once we removed all obstacles from the equation. Finding common ground is easier to do with a level head versus one that resembles a rupturing volcano.
May the force be with you! JB
