Questions to ask during viewings

Questions to ask during viewings

Buying a house can feel super overwhelming!

You’re making a HUGE financial decision, and sometimes you’ve got about 15 minutes during an open house or a viewing to decide if you’re going to put in that first offer.

That’s why, when I’m showing my clients around, I always tell them to take their time checking out the place and deciding if it really suits them. While they do that, I’m on a mission to make sure we don’t miss out on asking some really IMPORTANT QUESTIONS like:

Logistics Stuff:

  • Why’s the owner selling?
  • When is the current owner moving out?
  • How long has this place been up for sale?
  • Are there other offers on the table for this place?

    Property Stuff:
  • Did the seller do any big renovations?
  • How old is the heating/cooling stuff? Is it still in good shape?
  • Was there ever a major problem?
  • Is the sewer doing its job?
  • Has there been any water issues or damage?

    Local Stuff:
  • What are the property taxes looking like?
  • What kinda public stuff is around here?
  • How are the schools in this area? (even if you’re not planning on kids, this affects resale!)

    Extra Tip: Don’t let the fancy decorations fool you! Remember, you’re not buying that super cool sofa you saw. What you’re really buying are the basics – the foundation, the layout, and the structure.

    Keep this info handy, just in case you’re off to check out some open houses soon. And remember, you can always give me a call or shoot me a text anytime you need help!
