• Electronic lockboxes are used by real estate agents:
Electronic lockboxes certainly have many benefits for real estate agents. I feel it’s important to show a property myself. Next to you, I should knows the ins and outs of your home the best. However, sometimes it is just impossible to be able to attend every single showing. For these times, I use an electronic lockbox or as it is called, the iBox. iBox is a sophisticated key holder where your door key is placed and accessed by other realtors.
• Sophisticated level of security
Unlike the old combination lockbox, iBox has a very sophisticated level of security. Each licensed realtor is assigned their very own “key fob” to open an iBox. The Greater Fort Lauderdale Board of Realtors assigns the fob. Each time a realtor uses his own fob to enter an iBoxes an email is immediately sent. This email alerts me that someone has entered the home. The email contains detailed information. This information includes the date and time of the entry, name of the realtor, his/her phone number and email. A secure database online then maintains all of this information for future use.
The information has many benefits to me and you. If something was missing from your property, I would know who had accessed it last. With this knowledge I can then know who last entered the home.
As a homeowner you are going to ask me how many showings your property has had. Have their been repeat showing you may ask me. I can then pull a report and tell you the number of showing which occurred along with the date and time.
iBox also gives valuable information to enable me to follow up with the other real estate agents to get feedback as to what their client felt about your home.
As a realtor, I find iBox invaluable. Never will you find one of those old rusty combination locks on any of the properties that I list. It’s just too easy to gain access to your home with a combination lockbox.
This is how I have gain the reputation that I have worked so hard for. I think of my clients and never compromising your safety or mine. I am always looking for the toward the latest technology to put me ahead of the average realtor.
