There are certain unwritten rules of etiquette buyers should follow when they are out looking at homes. Most are common sense and just plain ole being courteous! Below are some tips for being a courteous buyer.
- Take shoes off. Mud, snow, rain – you may be out looking in all types of weather so don’t tramp through a house with your wet/dirty shoes on. Take them off and go in your socks or bring clean shoes to wear. Extra tip – check your socks for holes before heading out!
- Control your kids. They shouldn’t play with the toys they found or run unattended through the home.
- Be on time. When showings are set up, the seller leaves the house, a listing agent meets you there along with your buyer’s agent. Being late impacts many people, not to mention it may put the whole showing schedule behind. Unavoidably detained? Then call your agent for a heads up.
- Don’t spend an hour viewing a home you already decided you dislike. It’s okay to do a quick look and say it’s not to your liking.
