San Francisco Real Estate: Escrow Out Loud


#64: Lockbox Legends

Ep. 64

Lockboxes can be a convenient way for realtors to set up appointments for house viewings. However, they are not very commonly used in San Francisco. Today on Escrow Out Loud, our San Francisco Real Estate podcast, we talk about why this is and alternative ways buyers view properties in this town.

[00:21] There are a few urban legends that explain why very few houses listed for sale in San Francisco are on lockbox, but Matt has his own theory. Much more common are open home viewings on Sundays or scheduled appointments during the week.

[04:06] Unlike other parts of the country, in San Francisco, weekend open houses are paramount. How does this work for tenant occupied properties?

[06:45] We wrap up today with Britton sharing a story about seeing houses!
