How to Get Into Your Locked House

By October 15, 2012

Follow me on:

One of these days, you're probably going to find yourself needing to get into your locked house, and you won't have a key.

See, getting locked out of the house can happen to anybody, even to real estate agents. A buyer's agent once lost the key to one of my vacant listings. He removed the key from the lockbox and somehow misplaced it. My seller lived out of state, and I didn't have a spare key.

After verifying that I was authorized to represent the seller, a locksmith showed up and charged that agent $125 to make a new key. But there were other ways to get into that locked house.
