Do you Know How to Recognize an Email Scam?

Email scams are on the rise.  Do you know how to recognize an email scam?  The scammers have become much more clever than they used to be and are spoofing different service providers than were previously targeted.  Check out the video to learn how to recognize a scam and protect yourself from theft of money or identity.

The latest scams purport to be from Docusign, a trusted eSigning service and Amazon, the popular shopping site.  Don’t be fooled into clicking a link that looks legit!

Did you know that Gmail will show you if it believes an email is legitimate? Look for the key symbol in front of the sender’s name.  

That symbol was missing in the examples in the video.  Go back and have another look.

Just to be safe, use both methods of verifying, checking the link location and looking for the key symbol.

Hope this helps you stay safe!

What Should You Know About REALTOR® Safety?

Realtor SafetyThere’s been a bunch of media attention on REALTORS® that have been accosted, raped and even murdered while conducting business.  Although I’m sure it happens in other industries too, because I am a REALTOR® I wanted to share some thoughts about what’s happening and what you can do to help.

Perhaps surprisingly, it’s not just women that are the subject of these attacks. Some of these attacks are robberies, others are more violent crimes.

As detailed in the video below there, just recently two different attacks were made on agents in St Petersburg Florida.  Both survived, but according to the government statistics more than 20 REALTORS® have been murdered in the past decade.

So as someone that is interested in buying a home, please help keep REALTORS® safe.  When you happen to be driving by a house with a “For Sale” sign on it, please do call and schedule an appointment to take a look at it.  Please don’t insist that the agent drop whatever they are doing to show it to you right now. 

Many agents believe that if they don’t run right out, you may just call someone else that will.  I’m curious, do you think you will get better, more qualified help from someone that has enough free time that they can run out to show a house without notice, or from someone with a full schedule?  Experience shows that busy people get more done well.

Personally, I’m usually booked several weeks in advance.  If needed, I may be able to rearrange my schedule to accommodate unusual circumstances, but what I truly believe is that everyone gets the house they’re supposed to have. It really doesn’t matter if you see it right now, or next week — if it’s the house for you, the timing will be right.

So, how does not pressuring an agent to run out and show a property help to keep them safe?  If that agent develops the same confidence I have that everyone gets what they should, then they won’t find themselves in the position of the St Petersburg agents depicted in the video.

Other safety measures agents may use include meeting clients at the office instead of at a property, taking a copy of the client’s driver’s license and leaving a copy with the office, and letting someone know when the agent will be back in the office. These are all standard policies for my business.

I know that sometimes you see the house and think, “This is it! I have to see it right now!” but there may be better questions to ask than, “will you show it to me now?”  Curious about what those might be?  Send me an email at Safety@93561home.com and I’ll send you the list.

Coming Soon?

Call 661.375.7325 and ask Sally Lawrence, REALTOR® for info on Tehachapi area homesHow often does it happen that you are driving around Tehachapi keeping an eye out for new real estate signs and you see one that says “Coming Soon?”  What does this mean?

Usually, “Coming Soon” signs are put up on behalf of sellers of foreclosed properties.  For an excellent article on why putting up a “Coming Soon” sign is a bad idea for a conventional seller, check out Doug Francis’ blog.  Most often, in the Tehachapi area, these signs are an indication that a property will be offered for sale at some point.

These properties are referred to as pre-listings.  They give the opportunity to generate interest even before the property is ready to sell.

When properties have been foreclosed, they may not be immediately ready to sell.  If repairs are needed, the seller may want to have those done before officially listing the property.  There could also be title issues that need to be resolved before a property can be resold.  A variety of issues can delay the official marketing of a property.

As a potential buyer, you may be tempted to call the number on the sign, but I suggest that you call your REALTOR® of choice.  Remember, your REALTOR® can provide all the information you need about any properties in the area and protect your best interests at the same time.

If you have any questions about this or other Tehachapi area real estate questions, feel free to contact me.  Looking for a REALTOR® to help you with your move?  Let’s talk about what you’re looking for!
