April is Century 21® National Open House Month!
Just as the spring flowers are getting ready to bloom, many available homes on the real estate market throughout Delaware will be opening their doors to kick off the spring buying season.
Here are some helpful tips so that you are prepared when attending Open Houses:
• Wear Comfortable shoes – as the warm weather approaches I know its very tempting to want to wear those high summer wedges, but it might be a good idea to leave them behind and grab your comfortable walking shoes since you will be doing a lot of walking through houses as well as going up and down stairs.
• Ask permission before taking pictures or recording a video
• Be respectful of the homeowner’s personal belongings – while it is acceptable to open closets and draws, you want to be mindful that you are not rummaging or snooping through the current homeowner’s personal belongings.
• Bring a notebook or tablet –you may have a copy of the listing advertisement, but it is always helpful to you the buyer to be able to make your own notes on the specific aspects of the property that you either like or dislike.
