Here's yet another reason to consider investing in home security cameras: You might just catch people having sex in your bed. Yes, this cringe-inducing scenario apparently happened in Wayne, New Jersey, when a couple put their home on the market. They hired a real estate agent from Coldwell Banker and were shocked to discover that the agent, along with another agent from the same company, decided to use the old "sex sells" adage by having sex repeatedly in the home they were hired to sell.
The couple, Richard and Sandra Weiner, are suing real estate agents Robert Lindsay and Jeannemarie Phelan for pricing their home far above market price so that no one would come to see it, and they could have the house empty for their romps.
Their sex den was discovered when the couple took a peek at their security camera footage. Wowsa, that must have been some shock to see that happening in the house. Reportedly, the agents even had sex on their bed.
The suit alleges:
On Dec. 27, 2011, the security cameras in the Weiners’ home captured Lindsay entering the Weiners' home at 12:49 p.m. and he was dressed casually. At 12:51 p.m., the security cameras show that Phelan entered the Weiners’ home and Phelan and Lindsay kissed and hugged in the kitchen. The security cameras further show that at 1:02 p.m., Lindsay and Phelan entered the master bedroom, undressed and proceeded to have sex on the Weiners' bed.
Ewww. Apparently the real estate agents never even tried to sell the house -- they would just use their keys to show up and get horizontal. Something tells me when the agents said they would accept "offers" on the home, this wasn't the kind of offers the sellers were expecting.

The agents have reportedly been fired. I'd make them come scrub the place with bleach too.
When you hand over your keys and vacate your home to allow agents to come inside -- you don't mean that they should come inside! Being a full service agent doesn't mean you should offer EVERY service. An "open house" doesn't mean this kind of open! C'mon, people.
Unfortunately, the videos of said romps do not seem to be available. Believe me, I looked. Of course, this all could be some kind of bizarre attempt to get the home attention in a slow market.
Have you ever been worried about letting agents into your home?
