Touring Open Houses

With everyone gearing up for the spring selling season here are some tips for touring homes.

  1. Dress for the occasion. Touring 10 homes in one day is a lot of work. You may also want to have food and drinks.
  2. Stay focused. Touring several homes can be very stressful. Having a plan and your list of must-haves and wants that you and your partner agree upon will help you both stay on the same page, and stay focused.
  3. Map your day but prepare to be flexible. Many homes on the market are not on the MLS. Allow time to tour neighboring subs and time to tour homes that catch your eye.
  4. Have someone you can contact for more information on homes. This is the information superhighway. Having a person you can call to look up information for you or having a hand held computer is very handy.
  5. Don't forget to check out the value of the neighborhood.  Meet a few neighbors; remember you are considering living next to them.
