When you have a list of homes you want to see, we will contact all the sellers or their agents, and make appointments. Most homes are going to be lived in – so we must be respectful to the seller and be on time, with as little disruption as possible. So wear shoes that slip on and off easily. If you bring kids with you, make sure they understand that they cannot explore the home on their own and of course, no pets while looking at homes.
You may have 10 homes on your list, but my suggestion is to only look at 5 or less at a time. They all start to “mush together” if you look at more than that in one day.
We will bring you all the particulars of each home and a form where you can rate the home right after we view it. Click Here to view the house hunting checklist. This way we have a clear picture of your thoughts when we get back to the office and look everything over. This also helps days later when you can’t remember “now, which one had the red carpeting?”
I like to map out our route so it’s most efficient. We can ride together, or you can follow. Sometimes, when we have car seats etc., it may be better if I ride with you! But if you and kids decide to ride with me…… “I have kid movies!”
