Lockbox etiquette shows respect to the listing agent, but also the seller's. You want to take the necessary steps to keep their property safe and secure, and treating the lockboxes with care before, during and after showings is how you do that. 

The hot market has kept CREB® Member Practice busy as we identify trends, promote best practices, and continue to answer member questions about unexpected situations in the field.

As we are amid the spring market and the summer market fast approaching, personal safety should be a top priority for all of us. 

Dower Rights should be on the radar of all members who deal in residential real estate. These are the rights that a married spouse has to a property if they are not on title. So how does a REALTOR® know if dower rights apply?
The CREB® Lobbybox program places a centralized lockbox for apartment style condominiums in a discreet but safe place. This allows for easy and efficient access to listings for REALTORS®, but for this to be possible, the keys always need to be available.
