Safety Tips for Open Houses in the GTA


Open houses happen all the time for they are essential to getting your property noticed by home buyers. But as often as they occur they are not always the safest.
Think about it, only in an open house will you ever allow strange people to walk around your house when you are not there and look through your rooms and closets.

As great as they are they are not always secure, which is why we put together some tips for home owners to ensure their property and possessions remain safe.

Open house safety tips

  • Find a reputable agent and talk to her or him about how to safeguard your possessions.

  • Make sure your agent uses a sign-in sheet for everyone who comes into the house.

  • For multilevel homes, ask your agent to bring an assistant so all floors are covered at all times.

  • Remove valuables from view and store them in a safe, locked place.

  • Remove all prescription medicines and lock those up too.

  • Don’t forget about small electronics, such as laptops, iPads, smartphones, and other electronic devices that are easy to pick up and tuck in a pocket.

  • Make sure your desktop computers are locked with a passcode.

  • Bills, checks, bank statements, passports, and ID cards should be secured.

  • Don’t use any heirlooms or valuable possessions to stage your rooms.

  • If images of your home are online real estate site, don’t display valuables that will entice thieves.

  • After each open house, insist that the real estate agent lock all doors and windows, as you wouldn’t want anyone “stopping back by” later after they have already been through the house.
