Loyal blog reader Randy H. had a great question for us on social media.

“Does ARMLS have rules on lockbox placement?”

In short, we don’t dictate in our rules where a lockbox must be placed on a listing. We do, however, have some tips.

1. Think of your fellow agents when placing a lockbox. Make sure you keep them easily reachable and accessible.

2. Supra iBox BTLE are designed to be placed on door knobs. The shackle comes off every time.

3. Many cities and utility providers have ordinances or rules against attaching any item (including lockboxes) on gas, water and electric meters or lines. Placing a lockbox on a gas meter or other utility is a safety concern. There is also a possibility of damage to the property in doing so.
