Showing Homes

Your Real Estate agent will arrange to see the homes you've selected together and in person to determine which one is the best fit for you.

  • Making the most of your time while touring homes
    You should have an idea of your price range, an estimate of your monthly payment, and a pre-approval lender letter so sellers know your buying power and ability to purchase. Narrow down your wants and needs with your Real Estate agent and think about what’s most important to you. Preview properties through the number one marketplace for real-time homes for sale through your own MLS portal. Choose all the homes you want to see with your Real Estate agent with the days and times that work for you.
  • What should I expect when visiting homes?
    You and your Real Estate agent will tour homes together. Homeowners usually are not home, so you’re free to spend as little or as much time as you want. Buyers often have an immediate reaction to a home. First impressions count, but you should also ask your Real Estate agent for their opinion as well.
  • How many homes should I visit?
    Buyers may find their dream home on their first visit, while others may have to look at a number of properties before they find one that satisfies all their requirements. It's always a good idea to visit a few homes, so you can compare and contrast them and make an informed decision.
  • What should I look for when visiting homes?
    When viewing a house, it's important to look beyond the decorative items and staging to assess the condition of the home. Take notes and photos to keep track of any issues or features that stand out. Consider any possible home improvements you may want to make and research their costs. Don't forget to check the outside of the property and the surrounding neighborhood. Your real estate agent can provide you with neighborhood insights and data to help inform your decision. Also, be sure to locate your commuter route, schools, shops, restaurants, parks, and other amenities. If the property is a condo or in a homeowner's association, find out the fees and rules to ensure they align with your preferences.
