You have to be just as diligent about protecting your personal information when you’re house
is for sale as you are about keeping it neat and clean.
I’m Ilyce Glink with today’s Real Estate Minute.
Identity theft is a very real threat when you’re selling your home if you’re not
careful. Strangers can easily rifle through your personal financial data if you leave
it lying around. This includes credit card bills and your checkbook.
So when you show your home, put all your financial records in a locked safe or in a locked file
cabinet hidden at the back of a closet. Don’t keep the key anywhere close.
They can also access your computer when you’re not looking so be sure to password protect
your computer or better yet, keep it turned off. If you have a laptop, unplug it and make
sure it’s well-hidden. They are so light and thin, someone can easily slip it under
their coat. I’m Ilyce Glink, for more details and links
