Realtors & Guns

Hat tip to Richard who sent this in, but honest, I’ve never seen him packing! There are 1.3 million realtors, and 2-3 get killed every year – I’ll take my chances. But I don’t think women should do open house by themselves.

Realtors often go into houses they don’t know, with people they’ve just met. Safety efforts have become a real focus, but the potential for violence has some of them taking up arms.

Scott Smith spends a lot of time at the range, making sure if he has to use his gun, he’s fully trained and ready.  But Smith doesn’t just shoot for sport. He legally carries a concealed gun for his job as a realtor.

“People think realtors have a lot of money, that they are rolling in the dough, so people automatically think – ‘there’s an easy target.'”

This is one of the perils of real estate video production.  You can get the whole crew out on a sunny day and make a quality video, but if the haze rolls in…..

The photo above is a good representation how the ocean view looks in person!

For those looking for perfection, this house is for you – everything is brand new, and comes with a 10-year warranty! Now priced at $1,450,000:

Newer One-Story with View

Richard has a new listing in the Stone Canyon gated community high in the hills of San Marcos.  We’ve contemplated just being one-story specialists, but there aren’t enough of them coming up for sale!

We also have it as a Coming Soon listing on Zillow.

Even though I’m not a big fan of the practice, I like to try things out at least once a year to see if I can learn anything new.

One of the problems with the Coming Soon listings is that agents don’t have a game plan once the listing hits the internet.

Are they willing to show it prior to MLS input?

Are they willing to sell it prior to MLS input?

Apparently these questions don’t occur to many of the agents employing the Coming Soon strategy, because when I call on them, rarely do they have an answer. They just hope a buyer calls and they can round-trip the deal.  The seller deserves better! (we are happy to show while the seller puts the finishing touches on the house)

If you like this one, call Richard Morgan at 619-200-3844.
