Lock boxes types and styles have evolved over the years, but they still provide the same benefits to realtors and sellers: they make showing houses easier. Security lock boxes give a realtor access to the house whenever interested buyers want to take a look, instead of scheduling a time when the seller is available. Key lock boxes hold keys and other small items. They are attached somewhere near a house -- a front door, gate, meter or deck post -- and can be accessed only by those who have a combination or programmed key card.

Lockable boxes come in a variety of styles. Most realtors now use electronic lock boxes that offer the additional feature of storing entrance activity, so that the office can have a record of when a house was shown. However, other less expensive alternatives in locking boxes can be bought in bulk. Some lock boxes types and styles include:

1. Push-button lock boxes;

2. Keyed lock boxes that require a special key to open.

3. Lock boxes that have a dial, similar to a padlock or bicycle lock.

Find electronic lock box suppliers

Electronic lock boxes are the most commonly used lock boxes in the real estate industry. They can be programmed with a realtor's identification number or the listing's MLS number, making it easy to keep track of entries to the property.

Locate push button lock boxes for sale

Push button lock boxes are easy to use since there is no fumbling with combinations or dials. They hold keys and small items in the compartment. The unit can be hung on a doorknob or door frame. Lock boxes are set to a default combination that should be immediately changed .

Get keyed boxes from lock box distributors

Keyed lock boxes are opened with a special key that is coded to the lock box. Most suppliers can match an existing key code to a new box.

Find dial combination lock boxes

Dial lock boxes are similar to padlocks or lockers. They open by dialing each tumbler to the set number. On most lock boxes, the combination can be reset by turning a screw on the box.
