Today i arrived at a house in Prince George's County with my buyers. The grass is over grown and the listing said that it was vacant.
I knocked before entering anyway and I thought it sounded like someone was walking around. I knocked again and waited.
Then we finally opened the door and we entered the vacant home.
We turned into the living room and 2 people were in there. A young man was sitting on the floor looking as though he was rolling something into a cigarette and a young woman standing next to him. Because at that point we weren't sure whether they were supposed to be there we spoke to them. The girl answered. The man never looked up or spoke.
Further into the house it was obvious that the back window was broken out and that was how they had entered. There were 2 bathrooms on the main level that had obviously been used repeatedly even though there was no water in the house.
Of course as soon as we left I called the listing agent to inform him that there were squatters in his listing.
The sad thing is that it is a nice house that had obviously been well maintained by the owners. It is sad to see people come in and destroy the home.
This is one of the main reasons why I do not preview homes alone. You just never know what you are walking into. These people could have very easily been violent.
