Tips for buyers:

  1. Go to as many open houses as you can. Seeing different homes helps you decide which features you want in a home and  gives you insight into neighborhood features.  To conserve gas, try using Google Maps to layout the best route from home to home.
  2. Take detailed notes as you walk through each home. Put the home’s address at the top of each page to keep everything organized. Once you’re home, it’s easy to confuse houses and features.
  3. Take lots of pictures. Start with an outside photo of the front of the house that shows the address and a bit of the homes on each side to help you remember which house you were at.
  4. Remember to pick up marketing materials.
  5. Don’t rush. Give yourself time to poke in all the nooks and crannies. If you like the home, imagine yourself living there.
  6. Keep your comments to yourself, especially if you like the home. You don’t want to give away your bargaining advantage. If the seller or his agent knows you want to buy the home, it will be harder for your agent to negotiate a lower price. Instead, make a note to call your agent to schedule a private tour. This is the time to discuss the pros and cons of the house in detail with a knowledgeable professional who has your interests at heart.
  7. Talk to your agent and come up with a plan. Realtors have access to many homes without scheduled open houses. Your realtor will be able to schedule tours of these homes so you can make a direct comparison of similar homes for sale in the same area on the same day.
