These tips work for both a showing or an open house.

What should you look for when walking through a home?

  • Is there enough room for both the present and the future?
  • Are there sufficient bedrooms and bathrooms?
  • Is the house structurally sound?
  • Do the mechanical systems and appliances work?
  • Is the yard big enough?
  • Do you like the floor plan?
  • Will your furniture fit in the space? Is there enough storage space? (Try bringing a tape measurer to help answer these questions.)
  • Does anything need to be repaired or replaced? Will the seller repair or replace the items?
  • Imagine the house in good weather, bad weather, and also in every season. Will you be happy with it all year round?
