Winter Safety

January 17, 2023

Showing HUD Homes in the Winter Weather:

As the weather gets colder, and winter approaches, your way of showing homes and viewing homes will change.  If it is dark at 5pm, if you go to see a home at 5:30pm, you will not be able to get a good look at the roof.  When viewing a vacant home, it is always a good idea to do a visual inspection on the outside before going inside.  Bring 1 or 2 good flashlights.  Are any of the doors or windows open, doors or windows broken, or do you see broken glass?  Do you see footsteps in the snow, leading into a back or side door? Never enter a vacant home alone.  Before entering a home with any security issues, it may be important to call the listing Realtor, to tell them of the issue that you may have found.  It may also be important, not to enter the property without a police escort, or having the police check the house out first.   Safety is always paramount.
