Angelia - I am assuming that we don't have any "Let Yourself In" lockboxes in my area because I have never heard of them. We use Supra electronic lockboxes.

Never heard of them.  Most properties in my area are still using combo.  In the city they are usually supra lockboxes.

Hi Angelia --- do you mean allowing potential buyers/tenants to "visit" a property without an agent?   I would not use this type of lockbox and feel it's not something our industry should allow.

Never even heard of them Angelia Bynum and I would be scratching my head wondering what they were if it were not for Mike Rock 's answer. They do NOT sound like a good idea to me.

There is clarification under Debbie Reynolds post.

 

I see them for out of area agents and REOs.  Sometimes there will be a combo lock on the door handle itself.  It's more of a pain than a Supra box.
