Frequently Asked Questions

Are buyers legally allowed to enter my home without an agent?

A JRTB showing is different from a regular agent showing. JRTB is a tool that lets you (and your agent acting on your behalf) invite people into your home, and easily schedule these visits.

In short, while some real estate boards require agents to be at showings, JRTB showings are essentially visits, and are outside the scope of such rules.


What about the risks involved?

The buyer client is known to you and approved by you. You set minimum requirements and standards of who you will allow to view your home without an agent. All are rated and you can control any of the viewings. All parties entering your home have contact info, so if anything of concern ever arises, we have ways to track down the answers required. 


How can I get my home on JRTB?

You or your agent can. Become a member, buy the JRTB.ca lock box, and pay the fees incurred as per the contract signed between JRTB.ca and you or your agent.


How long will each showing take?

Showings are booked by the hour and the viewer of the home must be in during that hour only. They can only enter during that chosen hour and must be done and home secured before the end of the chosen hour.


How do I set times for home viewings?

Before adding your home to JRTB, your agent will ask you about your schedule. You can block off any days you like.


How will I know that a viewing is coming up?

When your listing agent approves a buyer’s request to view your home, you will receive an SMS notification. You will then receive another one half an hour before the scheduled viewing begins.
