[Video] Those Darn Frozen Lockboxes

lockboxBy Warren McNeil,

I did a video for my fellow realtors about how to deal with frozen lockboxes.

Here is a summary:

1. Always carry lock de-icer. Common sense but sometimes we forget.

2. Cover the lockbox. I use a zip-lock bag.

3. Use two lockboxes One on the inside with the unit key and one on the outside for the main entrance.

4. Pickup the keys at the office. My least favourite option.

Just some clarification. I like the button style lockbox but in the winter time they tend to freeze up more easily then the dial style or the GE Master lockboxes. The majority of the time we use the button style lockbox but in the winter,  I recommend the dial style for condos.

Here is the video
