According to a recent Moby survey of 450 real estate professionals, 42% of the female respondents and 18% of men felt they were unsafe on the job. Everything from sex offenders to squatters on the property contributed to the results.
Some common safety tips you can use to protect yourself out there are keeping your close family and friends constantly updated on your location, taking a copy of the potential clients’ ID, keeping your office up to date with your appointments and whereabouts, and checking sex offender and other available online lists if you really feel uneasy. Of course, doing your appointments during the daytime is much safer than at night.
Bottom line, be safe out there, help your clients find and obtain what they want, and make money!
