Who's in my house?!

Focus Real Estate
May 31 3 minutes read



Randal:

Are you kind of wondering who the hell all these people are that are roaming in and out of your house during the sales process? Seeing your house, there's a ton of people in and out of your house. Who the hell are they? 

Erik:

You have to give up a little bit of privacy. 

Randal:

You gotta give up some serious privacy. 

Erik:

And have some trust. 

Randal:

You know, you let the appraiser in and they like to wander around the house and they like to take their measurements and do their thing. 

Erik:

Take some pictures, poke around. 

Randal:

I mean, they're not taking a shower while they're there. If they do, you might wanna call the board. But anyway, this isn't the only person. We have home inspectors. We have other real estate agents. 

Erik:

Us as agents. 

Randal:

Home inspector, all of these people. Oh, by the way, these people are all licensed and what does that mean? There's accountability, right? They have codes of ethics. They have responsibilities. 

Erik:

They have minimum standards for their profession and their conduct and these are consumer protections. These are for the consumers. 

Randal:

Cause I think really what it comes down to is who the hell are these people? Why are they in my house? Am I safe? Is my stuff safe? And kind of taking it back to, yes, these are licensed professionals and there's recourse around what happens while they're in your home. They're insured, they're licensed. You can make complaints. You can do these kinds of things.

Erik:

And there's standards of doing their job and doing it professionally. 

Randal:

So along with these minimum standards, there's also things that they have to do. When a home inspector comes to your house, they can't just go down into the basement and go, "Yeah, your structure looks great, that's $150. I'm outta here." No, they have licensed standards they have to account to. Same with appraisers. Appraisers have certain standards that they have to work by to evaluate the value of your home. 

Erik:

And most important, knowing that when those arrangements are made for a professional come in, there are those standards and that your house, your belongings, confidentiality, all those things, are safe and sound based on that level of professionalism. 

Randal:

So any other feedback you have and things that you'd like to know about, feel free to reach out and let us know. And until next time. 

Randal and Erik:

Stay tuned and stay focused. And stay focused. 

Randal:

Do you have a license for those? 

Erik:

Pull a Will Smith on you. Oh too early to say that? Too soon, too soon.
