14 Things To Do After Going To An Open House

You want the home

  1. Determine your best offer. Work with your Agent to identify your initial bid, look up the home's history, and factor in needed repairs.

  2. Wait and be patient. As soon as your Agent hears something, you will be the first to know.

  3. Don't ignore your budget. It's better to hold out for a home you can afford than to go broke over a rushed decision.

  4. Remember the inspection. If the seller(s) refuse to address major problems, you might need to walk away.

You're not sure

  1. Sleep on it. If you're not 100% sure, get a good night's rest and see how you feel in the morning.

  2. Know your deal-breakers. Which features match up to your list? Which don't?

  3. Go back for a personal tour. Take a second to look with your agent, and bring a friend who can offer fresh perspective and an honest opinion.

  4. Consider your lifestyle. When you imagine yourself living in the home, is it still a good fit?

You hated the home

  1. Identify the issues you didn't like. Remember them when you visit new listings.

  2. Broaden your horizons. Expand your search into areas or features you haven't considered.

  3. Don't settle. There's a big difference between making a few small compromises and making a big mistake you'll have to live with for years.
