Protecting foreclosuresForeclosures are all over the place and I'm reading countless reports of criminals who steal air conditioners in broad daylight, squatters in empty houses, and copper and wire harvesters who gut and ultimately destroying the house, making the house often difficult to sell and destroying the surrounding property values.Now it's obvious that the police will respond to calls of vandalism, or destruction of private or bank owned property. But what, if anything can or should we as Realtors or Homeowners do in order to actively protect these distressed properties to sustain the values of their neighborhoods?January 26 2012 - Niceville00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
