Safe Selling: Predators vs. Thieves

September is Realtor Safety Month, and we're kicking things off with a multi-part video series on safe selling.

In this first video, you'll learn about the difference between the two different types of criminals you're most likely to encounter--predators and thieves.

Why is this important to learn? Well, according to video host Lee Goldstein of Real Safe Agent, "The more you understand about the type of criminals you could potentially run into, especially predators, then the more you understand how to prevent yourself from being targeted in the first place." This knowledge can also empower you to discourage interest if you are targeted, and "turn off" the predatory instinct of criminals.

In this week's video, you'll learn the differences between predators and thieves in regards to:

  • The types of crimes each commits
  • Motive
  • Their decision making process
  • Attractors
  • Their preferred environment for committing a crime

Watch the video above to learn more about each criminal type and how to protect yourself from them. Then, tune in next week for our next installment of Safe Selling!
