3.0 Continuing Education Hours

Firearm safety rules apply at all times. Firearms that are brought into the home must be properly stored to reduce the risk of injury to children, visitors or others. At least 18 states have safe storage laws which require guns to be stored safely so that a child or teen can't gain easy access. The presence of unlocked guns in the home increases of intentional shootings.

For the safety of the real estate professional and anyone else in the home at showing, all firearms should be removed from the home prior to showing Suggestions for storing firearms off-site might include a secure storage shed or a friend or family member’s house. If firearms cannot be removed from the property they should be kept out of site, locked, secured, and unloaded. The property owners should always remember that it will be strangers walking through their home at showing.

This course is designed to aid the real estate licensee by identifying those items which can be dangerous and those which have a high risk of danger if left in a property during a showing. The goal isn’t to scare your seller, just to educate them on property safety.
