Guys,

I'm wondering for those who've sold homes what you did with all of your reloading supplies, i.e. brass, bullets, primers and even the equipment etc. before the realtor started showing it to prospective buyers. I've got a room where I reload and I have supplies in the room. The room stays locked but It will need to be open for showings. I have no desire for people that I do not know to come into my home and see any of my stuff but especially that particular stuff.

Thanks,

Too much to put into a few large plastic storage bins stacked nicely in a corner? Or clear it out of site for pictures, keep the door locked and provide pics of the room??? Personally I wouldn't think much about it but the sale of your house is not my business.

During my last round of house hunting I was taken to a house in which I had to sign a non-disclosure agreement... I thought that was very odd but from what I was told by my realtor the oddity was worth overlooking to see the house. I signed. In a few of the common rooms there were "signs" as to what the deal was but I wasn't certain until I got to the master closet. Secret Service. Afterwards, I thought the NDA was an odd (and ineffective?) means to protect yourself. Would have been easier and more effective for the owner to "sanitize" the house and not have the NDA than to draw attention. Owell.

Most people won't know what most of that stuff is...keep it in boxes or plastic containers as MM mentioned and keep your guns in a safe or out of sight.

Same here. Wouldn't sweat the appearance but would make sure powder and components are locked in a cabinet or stored "out of plain sight." It's just a modern day sewing room in my mind.

Good Luck

Having my stuff out on display didn't slow the sale of my last house. As for folks not knowing what the stuff is, I got a visit from a Sheriff's deputy once. He said they were called that someone was 'cutting heroin or other drugs' and had to check it out. Seems someone walked by and saw my powder scale and figured I was dealing. We (the deputy and myself) had a good chuckle and started talking about guns and calibers etc.

Boxed up, and moved to a locked closet; along with any kind of hunting or firearm related stuff - no need for 'strangers' to know what I got or what my 'hobbies' are .....

I got more grief from the Moving Co than from Realtors & Clients.

Had to show the Movers that I had loaded the primers, powder & ammo in seperate tubs before they would agree to a submitting a Final Contract on Moving Day...but then I took all my stuff down to the new place when I pulled the boat down a week ahead of the actual Moving Day circus...and locked it up in the new house Outta Sight & Outta Mind...my guns and Safety Deposit Box stuff went to a friends house and stayed in his safe for a while until I was ready to handle it here...with all the Contractors in & out of the house getting the necessary bare minimum repairs done so that we could move in while the heavy demo & reno stuff was done under our watchful eyes.... just like camping out in a building zone.

Gotta say "small Town Texas" is daylite and dark different from DFW. We found a small group of Contractors here in Palestine by word of mouth references that I trust more than I thought I ever would anywhere else & did with one of them having a key to my house....totally unlike living in the Metro Mess....where I had an HO Insurance Claims Unit's engineering contractor steal the evidence that justified my broken foudation claim, and then Deny the Claim in their Written Report. THAT made for a fun day in Mediation when I produced the pics of the evidence... with the Engr'ng Co field rep's standing over the evidence.
