Home Tour Tactics

Looking for a starter home for sale shouldn't be an occasion in which you feel pressured to make an offer. Your best course of action is to determine what your price range is, consult with a realtor, and then view homes that fit your criteria. Before heading to each tour, prepare yourself for what is about to unfold. 

Arrive on Time and Listen to the Agent

Your agent may have a full schedule, which involves showing homes to several clients. If you make an appointment to meet them at a home that is listed for sale, show up on time. You probably don't want your tour cut short, due to the agent needing to leave to tend to another client. During the initial part of the tour, you may be provided with a brochure or a listing that highlights all of the features that the home possesses.

Listen to your agent and hold off on asking questions, until you have been provided with some detailed information about the home's history, the materials that it is constructed of, the neighborhood that the residence is located in, and any repairs or upgrades that have been completed to the home. 

Feel Free to Open Items or Inspect Fixtures

Cabinetry, appliances that are included with the purchase of the home, and built-in drawers can be inspected during your tour. Inspect permanent fixtures that are part of the home's construction. The condition of these items will give you an idea of how well the residence was cared for. You will also be able to determine if the appliances will be sufficient for your needs or if there will be adequate storage for the amount of possessions that you own. Head down into the basement and up into the attic, to inspect each area.

Take Time to Reflect Upon Your Tour

Don't make any indication that you are prepared to bid on the residence, unless you are completely certain that you have found the perfect home. You have time to think things over and your real estate agent will expect you to do so. Tell the agent that you will get in touch with them. Thank the agent for their time and make plans to view some other homes that are in the area. After you have viewed all of the residences that interest you, you may be ready to bid on the residence that appeals to you the most.
