Protecting Your Privacy While Your Home Is On The Market

Selling your home can cause potential anxiety about your personal privacy.  With your doors open to a nearly constant stream of strangers through your home, you may worry that your personal information is at risk.  Protecting your personal information is a top priority.  Here are a few tips for protecting your privacy while your home is on the market.

Ask Your REALTOR® To Accompany Potential Buyers And Other People Entering Your Home

Some REALTORS® allow buyers to walk through the property on their own.  If you are concerned with allowing strangers to tour your home unaccompanied, let your agent know ahead of time.

Remove Your Mail And Financial Information 

Don’t leave mail sitting out.  You don’t want your personal information made public, and you would be surprised what thieves can use to steal your identity.  Also remove all checkbooks and banks statements and place them in a secure filing cabinet or lockbox.

Remove Personal Effects

From diplomas to wedding photos, don’t provide potential buyers with any personal information about yourself or your family.  Depersonalizing is also an important part of successfully staging your home for sale, so removing these things will allow you to accomplish two things at once.

Don’t Leave Your Computer On During Showings

A professional identity thief can access personal information from your computer in only a few moments, so shut your computer off before buyers arrive.

These simple tips can keep your privacy secure while selling your home.
