Dealing with Squatters: Avoiding Confrontation During a Showing

April 29 2019

Last week, we showed you what to do when the vacant home you're showing has a squatter. If you used the techniques we discussed, the squatter may leave the property voluntarily--but what happens if they refuse?

That's what we're exploring in this week's episode of "Real Answers." Watch the video above to learn:

  • Why you should treat them like the homeowner to avoid a confrontation
  • A sample script for starting a conversation with them
  • What NOT to say to avoid aggravating a squatter
  • The physical signs that hint that a squatter may escalate the situation

No matter how considerate your approach, sometimes a squatter may want to confront you anyway. Tune into next week's episode for tips on talking down an agitated squatter!
