REALTOR® Safety Series: Open House and Listing Appointment Safety
NAR recognizes REALTORS® face more on-the-job risks than many other business professionals and to help increase your knowledge, safety awareness and to empower you, we've created this Webinar on the most dangerous part of your job, Open Houses and Listing Appointments.
When showing a home, your primary focus is on your clients and whether or not they like the property. But don’t let that keep you from being aware of your safety. Whether you are hosting an open house or conducting a listing appointment, there are guidelines and procedures that will keep you as safe as possible. Every year, real estate agents are threatened, robbed, or physically or sexually assaulted while fulfilling ordinary, everyday requirements of their job. Some even lose their lives. By learning from these unfortunate and sometimes tragic incidents, you can make simple adjustments to the way you do business - and avoid violent crimes.
Learn about today’s criminals. Then learn how to properly set up and close an open house. Identify what you should do during the open house to maximize your safety and the safety of your clients. Lastly, learn the safest way to conduct a listing appointment.
