That sounds about right. You might want to edit your post and xxx out a few of the numerals. Never know who might be lurking here.....:glare:

It's common knowledge and openly advertised on MFS, and other websites.

We are not guarding nuclear secrets here. If a criminal wants in a property it's much quicker to kick the door in than get a key anyway.

Every plumber, electrician, realtor, insurance adjuster, and former P&P guy around here has a set of HUD keys.

Over the years, the professionals here have determined that posting keycodes in this forum serves no useful purpose, regardless of who already knows them.

The purpose of the thread was very useful in fact it could prevent a guy from driving all the way to a property to perform work and not being able to gain access. There is nothing unprofessional about trying to be prepared.

I carry a key ring with probably 30 different codes. I am willing to bet more than half are no longer in use by anyone and I have recently encountered a number of properties with codes I had never seen before.

We try and stick to the popular codes; it keeps us from having odd numbers that we'll never ever get another order for. We have one broker in our area that will not rekey to the required code ever; they send out the local locksmith who cuts a keyset that only he knows, throws it in the lockbox with no spares and leaves. So, short answer, no new codes that I have seen used more than once in the last year.

If one of my crews drove "all the way" to a property to perform work & then left because they didnt have the correct key, they're fired before they get back to the shop!
Since when did not having the correct key stop a property preservation professional from gaining access to a already rekeyed house?

However, I can see how this thread could be helpful to some, especially those who only work for 1 or 2 companies, or only do pre or post conveyence properties.
PM keycodes to eachother if you feel the need.

After all, look at my sig line; I'm a believer in keys! :icon_biggrin:

Every vehicle I own has a full set of keys in it, including my motorcycles. Nothing worse then trying to stop by a property when your out for something else and realizing you left your keys in your other jacket.

Why does it matter??? Every company out there seems to be putting a lockbox on these days. If you have a work order for the property the lockbox code should be on it if they want you in the house. In the not to distant future i believe you will see random codes on every house due to the fact that too many people that have no business in these homes have keys..........

Yeah that is exactly my point. If a guy goes and scopes one out on his Harley he needs to have the right key.

We rarely ever see lockboxes. I doubt I have used a lockbox more than twice ever.

I can get in myself so I don't worry about it. Some guys that work for us are a little skittish and prefer keys. The bottom line is I want every guy to have all the access keys he can but I probably carry 10-15 keycodes that are out of use.

Then again, if you're only "scoping it out" & you find you cannot access with a key, you'll be armed with that knowledge before you send an actual truck & crew out :thumbsup:

have 2 rings of keys.

one with:

a*** - padlock
3***1
4***5
7***7
6***7

I find 90% of properties can be accessed with those.

Then keep another set in the glove box with the 15 or so other keys that open some properties.

Fannie already has begun. Cant order locks from the P&P Supply houses since I might
only need 3-4 knobs of certain codes AND they are demanding quality locks...not the P&P crap.

I've found that 8 out of 10 homes we do initial services on have an open window somewhere around the house. I hardly ever need to drill through old locks to gain access to the property.
