Now that it is possible to view a property’s address from an Internet search, we are seeing more clients do their own drive bys before contacting us for a showing. Here’s a couple of things to keep in mind.
Look – Don’t Touch
Do drive by and check out the neighborhood. Feel free to park the car for a few minutes, roll down the windows and listen to the noise level, observe how much (or little) traffic is present, etc. If there’s a yard flyer, you’re invited as far as the flyer box to take one.
Don’t go onto the property, knock on the door, peek in windows, trample the landscaping, or let Fi Fi out to go potty in the lawn. 🙂 All jokes aside, trespassing on private property – even VACANT property – without a real estate license is a no-no.
