4 Insider Tips to Make the Most of Open Houses

Have you visited any open houses in the neighborhoods you're interested in? Make sure you're maximizing your weekend trips with these four must dos.

  1. Open everything.
    From doors to cabinet drawers, it's the only way to get an accurate sense of storage–and to make sure you don't miss a room!

  2. Take the takeaways.
    That extra paper may seem like a waste, but once you've seen more than a few houses, you'll need something to help you keep them straight.

  3. Take pictures and notes.
    Again, it's easy to forget what you saw where. The provided takeaways are a great start, but help yourself remember what you do–and don't–like about a place.

  4. Check out the neighborhood.
    Spend some time walking around the house. Are there close neighbors? What's the traffic like? Remember, you don't just buy a house–it's the whole neighborhood.

Initially you may want to check out these places yourself, but it can be helpful to have a real estate professional like me along for the ride. Visiting open houses with you will help me get a better sense of what you're looking for, and I can get helpful insights from the seller's agent if you're interested.
