Today I’m covering one of the most exciting topics in real estate, lockboxes! Just kidding, but it is an important topic to discuss if you’re thinking about selling your house.

A lockbox is the easiest way for us to show your home to the most interested buyers in the shortest amount of time. Sellers often ask us if they are safe. It all depends on the one you use. The standard combo lockbox requires the right code and nothing else. Anyone who has the code can open the box, and there’s really no way to tell who has opened it or not.

"Electronic lockboxes have the best features."

Another option is an electronic lockbox. The only agents that have access to these are registered with the local association. It also lets you know who opened the lockbox and at what time, as well as their contact info. This allows you to contact agents and their buyers after they see the home to get feedback. Feedback is a huge part of maximizing your home’s value. That’s one of the main reasons why we use the electronic lock box.

Although it’s not the most exciting topic, having the right lockbox is important when trying to sell your home for top dollar. If you have any questions for us or you’re interested in buying or selling a home, give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you.
