As a part of RealtorŪ Safety Month, the National Association of RealtorsŪ released its 2018 Member Safety Report, which surveyed over 3,000 RealtorsŪ, members of the National Association of RealtorsŪ, about how safe they feel while on the job, their personal safety experiences and the safety procedures they follow.

The report found that nearly a third of RealtorsŪ experienced a situation that made them fear for their personal safety or the safety of their personal information, and that 43 percent of RealtorsŪ choose to carry self-defense weapons.

?RealtorsŪ understand better than anyone the safety risks associated with real estate transactions. Because of that,it is imperative for members to share safety protocols with home buyers so they can learn about what they may encounter during the home buying process,? said NAR CEO Bob Goldberg.

The most common circumstances that resulted in fearful situations were open houses, showing vacant and model homes, working with properties that were unlocked or unsecured and showing homes in remote areas.
