Buyer Open House Tips

It’s All About Volume: Real estate sales associates encourage their buyers to visit a significant number of open houses. Seeing different homes can give buyers a much better idea of exactly what they desire in a property and can also help them understand how much home their money can buy.

Communicate With Your Sales Associate: Buyers should agree upon a plan with their sales associate before visiting open houses. Since real estate sales professionals have access to numerous available homes, not only those with open houses, an open line of communication will enable him or her to understand which neighborhood, types of homes and even particular features are attractive to the buyer.

Take Copious Notes: Homebuyers should take notes when attending open houses, especially when visiting multiple homes during the day. These notes, along with the marketing materials handed out at the open houses, will help them narrow down the list of homes that are of interest.

Do Not Feel Rushed: Home buying is a process that usually involves negotiating. If a buyer attends an open house and likes the property, it is generally best to keep it to him- or herself. They should contact their sales associate later to schedule a private showing.

Annette was awesome! She listened carefully to my needs and facilitated handling multiple offers in a very short period of time. since I am out of the state, she went above and beyond helping, kept an eye on the property and offering to assure some remaining items were removed at my request. So glad I found Annette!
