It’s pretty easy for folks in real estate to get complacent when it comes to safety. Our natural inclination is to trust people. But I believe that real estate investors are actually at much more risk than the average Realtor.
Realtors Have an Edge
If you are a real estate agent, you can have clients meet you at your office. By meeting these folks in advance, you can “pre-screen” them before you ever begin the process of showing them property. Some of the steps you can take would be to copy their driver’s license, have them fill out some basic customer/client information and introduce them to a co-worker. Realtors are able to verity their client’s identity to some extent
The vast majority of real estate investors don’t have an outside office, so this is much tougher to do.
More often than not real estate investors will be meeting someone at a property, and they have no way of pre-screening this person ahead of time except on the phone. Women are especially at risk in this business, so it pays to take some simple precautions.
