How Do You See a House That You Want to Buy?

How do you see a house that you want to buy? If you’re interested in visiting a home, you can attend an open house or schedule a showing. But what exactly is the process behind seeing a home in person?

In this post, Nancy Kowalik and our real estate team at Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty - Nancy Kowalik Group will answer this commonly-asked buyer question, so you can buy your dream home with confidence.

Key Takeaways:

  • Contact the listing agent to start scheduling a showing. Their contact information is typically available directly on the listing. Your realtor will usually take care of this step for you.
  • During the showing, ask questions about the property, neighborhood, and any features or amenities that interest you. It’s especially important to learn about the property’s maintenance history.
  • After the showing, follow up with your realtor to discuss your impressions of the home, ask for additional information, and address any concerns. If you decide to make an offer, they can help you take the next steps.

How Do I See a House That I Want to Buy?

Contact Your Realtor

The first step to seeing a house you want to buy is letting your realtor know you’re interested as soon as you can. Reach out to them and share details about the property like its address, listing ID, and your schedule for when you’re free for a showing. From there, your realtor will reach out to the seller’s agent to find a time that works for the showing.

Look For Open Houses

An open house might be enough for you to decide whether or not the home is the right fit for you, making a showing unnecessary. Your realtor can help you find open houses for homes that match your budget and criteria. 

You can also look for information online, on social media, or through local real estate publications. In addition, you can always choose to follow up on the open house with a showing if you want another chance to explore the listing.

Schedule a Showing

Contact the listing agent to start scheduling a showing. Their contact information is typically available directly on the listing. You’ll need to request a day and time for the showing appointment and be prepared to provide your contact information. The listing agent may also want some details about your interest in the property. 

Your realtor will usually take care of this step. You’ll coordinate with them to find a day and time for the showing since they’ll accompany you. 

Once a date and time are agreed upon, your realtor will confirm the showing appointment with the listing agent or seller of the property, one of whom will also be present during the showing.

Confirm Details

Make sure to confirm the date, time, listing address, and entry instructions with your agent or the listing agent before the showing.

Prepare for the Showing

Make sure to arrive on time for the showing, as there may be other appointments after yours. Arriving early ensures you have plenty of time to fully tour the property. 

It’s also a good idea to take notes about what you like and don’t like about the home, or bring a friend or family member with you for a second opinion.

What Do I Do During the Showing?

During the showing, ask questions about the property, neighborhood, and any features or amenities that interest you. It’s important to learn what you can about the property, especially its maintenance history, recent renovations, and the seller’s reasons for selling.

You’ll walk through the entire house and explore each room. Pay attention to layout, room sizes, cleanliness, and the condition of fixtures, appliances, and the overall home.

It’s usually ok to take photos or videos of the property, but it’s a good idea to ask for permission first. Otherwise, be sure to take notes about what you like and don’t like, and how the property compares to others that you’ve seen.

What Are The Next Steps After the Showing?

If you haven’t already, make sure to explore the neighborhood at some point. Evaluate its amenities, schools, public transportation options, and other factors that are important to your lifestyle.

After the showing, follow up with your realtor to discuss your impressions of the home, ask for additional information, and address any concerns. If you decide to make an offer, they can help you take the next steps.
