How I sold a house for more money because it had bugs

What real estate agents should know about video and listening devices and home showings
  • Installing hidden cameras and recording devices can lead to high-quality feedback that will help sell homes faster.
  • Recording conversations in a private place without proper consent may be illegal.
  • It's unclear how agents should handle these situations from a legal and ethical perspective, so consult a lawyer.

Back in 2015, I received a call from a client who said that we should be expecting an offer from the couple who had just toured his home. My immediate response was, “That’s great! I didn’t see the feedback email come across.”
