Great Question to ask. I just had a ver mserious incident happen while showing property to a single man. Turns out his intentions were never to buy a home but to committ a felony crime. This was only a week ago. I'm happy to say he is in jail on a 1,185,000.oo bail hold. He has serious charges he facing for what he did. Had I thought of looking into a website where I could check a persons background, credit history, criminal profile I would have been doing so with every client. After doing research I found a fantastic website it is Recordsarea.com the charge is only a one time fee of $35.00 for 5 years. I was able to gather this mans past and present criminal offenses, that he was on parole, where he lives and a satilite view of the home. Please be careful all of you Women and men to who think we will never be in a situation where we feel unsafe and or are attacked. The better we prepare ourselves and keep aware the more likely we are to be a wise and safe agent.
If you would like to contact me that would be great. I'm implementing a system in our office so we can avoid such situations for all our agents.
