Easy & Secure Home-Showings When Selling a House [Real Estate Insider]

May 12, 2020 8:42:46 AM / by Brett O'Daniell

supraTo make a home more readily available to prospective buyers, many sellers put the house on a secure SUPRA lock box. This allows the home to be included in MLS scheduling platform(s) to easily offer available times for showings, avoiding the potential hassle involved with multiple showing requests. Additionally, many home-sellers have all but eliminated “by appointment only” requests as it creates an additional scheduling barrier. 


Insist that your agent uses the SUPRA Electronic Key for access - This is the most common form of access for all agents. You and your agent will then have documentation of every agent that shows the house with a buyer, as each entry is logged.


Manual combination boxes: While these are relatively easy to use and cheap, they require communication to provide the combination lock number. This becomes a barrier to an immediate response. Furthermore, accessibility cannot be controlled. You don't know who, what, or when someone has entered the home. Buyers and agents can access the home repeatedly, with or without your knowledge, and can be easily provided to others for access. This can easily pose several risks that can easily be avoided by employing the SUPRA lock box system.
