Key box provides insurance against lock-out’s

Have you ever locked yourself out of your car or home? Or maybe you’ve needed to ask a neighbor to access your home when you’re not there. Do you have a safe spot to hide a key?

You’d be surprised how many people still leave a key under the doormat. (Shhh! Don’t tell the bad guys!)

A safe, inexpensive solution is to buy a “contractor’s” key box and attach it to a railing (or other permanent fixture) on your property. They are simple to install, can be moved from one location to another and use a re-programmable combination lock to give access to anyone you choose.

You can buy them at any hardware store for about $25. Be sure to get a sturdy one with a metal casing — not plastic — to prevent theft.

Here’s what they look like. Most are blank, but this one has my branding on it, because I gift them to my clients on move-in day.

I have carefully vetted each broker in terms of skill, experience and professionalism, so I am working only with the cream of the crop, and so are you!
