Smile You’re on a Nanny Cam!
When showing a home or condo to a prospective Buyer, I never want the Seller to be in the home. I too, understand if you have expensive art work and such, that you may want your listing agent there during a showing. (That too, can be a challenge) If that is the case, I always caution my Buyers not to get excited, or show much emotion about the home, as it truly CAN affect our negotiation position later if we make an offer on the home.
But, do you really know if you are all alone in the home? Hmmm….with the technology at hand and available today, that one book on the bookshelf could infact be recording our conversation. And most likely, perfectly legal. Afterall, you are in THEIR home!
So, if you are inclined to trash someone’s choice of decor, or express “this is it…we HAVE to have this house” while touring a home or condo, it just might all be on a recording!
Here’s a great article from Realtor.com that talks about this very possibility!
