Home buyers are being watched while walking through homes. Video surveillance has exponentially grown over the last decade; what started as “nanny cams” has morphed into Ring door bells, spot lights and even smaller interior and exterior cameras. Then toss in devices like Alexa, Echo, HomePod and Sonos…and understand that it’s best for home buyers to just assume that the seller is watching and listening. And it’s all perfectly legal.
The Hank Miller Team considers how the ubiquitous use of surveillance devices impacts both buyers and sellers and is changing the sales dynamic. It’s critical to understand how these devices are used, how they can impact the transaction and how to limit the influence they can have. And make no mistake, they are having an impact.
