Supra Lock Box Foils Cat Burglar

Supra real estate lockbox stops Cat Burglar!!

Breaking news Edinburg NY.

The cat burglar roaming Edinburg, NY has been stopped by the smart actions of Thomas J. Real Estate, Inc. The cat burglar had been targeting homes that were for sale where the real estate agent was using the unsecured combination lock boxes. It turns out the internet has hundreds of videos with hundreds of thousands of views on how to open those lockboxes.

In a recent interview with Real Estate Broker Thomas J. McGroder, he stated "that his company only uses the Supra Electronic Lockboxes on their listings". In order for an agent to access the Supra Lock Box, an agent has to log into the Multiple Listing System (MLS) and verify that they are still an active agent. After doing so, the system will allow the agent access to open the lock box for the day.  Thomas J. Real Estate has been using this technology for the past 15 years. 

The Supra Lock Box logs what time an agent entered the home and the time they left. 

When selling your home make sure your home is protected by the Supra Lock Box.

If you have questions about selling your home contact the professionals at Thomas J. Real Estate, Inc.

Confused on whether you should buy a home or rent?

Are you confused on whether you should buy a home or continue renting?

Real Estate Broker Thomas J. McGroder, talks about the benefits of home ownership. In todays climate its easy to be confused. The interest rates are a bit high, but they are coming down. When rates get to your desired level you can always refinance your home.

When you rent a home at the end of the lease you do not have any equity built up so you are loosing a lot of money. Because you do not have any ownership in the rental you limited on how you can update. 

If you have questions contact Thomas J. Real Estate, Inc or call 518-863-4691 We'd be happy to assist you with your real estate needs.
