Vacant homes attracting squatters

The premier event for luxury agents and brokers
Luxury Connect | Oct. 16-18 | Beverly Hills

There’s no shortage of listings in scenic Placer County, California, where real estate agent Audrey Baker tells Fox 40 that vacant homes can languish on the market for months — and it’s not unusual for them to attract squatters.

Baker said she opted to call 911 when she noticed the lockbox on a listing she was preparing to show in Applegate was missing, and a sliding glass door was open. Sheriffs deputies who responded found four people they characterized as drug addicts living in the house. Source:
