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.
