I have pads to prevent scratches. I will try to hang it on a door, but that's not always possible. If I don't hang it in an obvious place, then I make sure to put it's location in the agent showing instructions.

The front door if they have a screen to cover from street. Railing on porch. I always make it known to the agent.  Have not thought of a pad behind for scratches.  Good idea.

Wherever it makes most sense. Often it is on the gas meter on the side of a house - out of sight ... and I always indicate in the MLS where the LB is placed.

90% of the time it is on the front door.  Some door handles do not allow this, and on occasion I have to find a different location.  Sometimes on the gas meter, railings or the light.

Always on the front door unless it doesn't fit somehow. Whether I pad it depend on the door. There is nothing worse than having to tromp around a property (sometimes in muddy situations) looking for a lock box and then tromping back to open a door. For my listings, my thought is always to make it as convenient as possible for a showing agent and her/her clients to enter a home and look at the home instead of futzing around looking for a key box.

I try to stay away from the door knob because it makes it harder to open but that beats an exposed area where in bad weather it discourages showings.

The first choice for a Lock Box is a door knob or screen/security door, with choice number two being a gas meter Fred Griffin.  If the location is out-of-the-way, meaning not easy or typical to find, we will leave a comment in 'Agent Only Remarks'.

Fred, this is quite reminiscent of Dr. Seuss!  I usually hang mine on the front door or close by on a railing.  If that doesn't work, it'll be a side garage door, a faucet would be my last choice.
