Again with the cameras….
So yesterday at our weekly sales meeting it came up again… “Beware of the Voyeuristic Seller”. That’s right, it’s becomeing more and more prevelant for Sellers to set up cameras and watch video of people touring their homes.
I wrote about this before in 2010 after hearing a particularly disturbing story of a Realtor being video’d from a bathroon while he was urinating… I know, creepy.
Though I can see why a Seller would like to protect their belongings or try to gain negotiating leverage by capturing touring Buyers on video, I am not a big fan of this tactic. There is something intrinsically violating about being “spyed” on. I would at least like it to be posted that the property is being monitored.
As this practice grows in popularity, it will be interesting to see what the state and the Northwest Multiple Listing Service require of Sellers and Brokers.
Until then, I guess I’d better stop taking naps in other people’s beds.
