Take a Second Look at that Property Before Writing that Offer

Take a Second Look at that House Before Writing an OfferLast week I was out showing houses to out of town buyers. We looked at houses for three days, and I'm pretty sure we saw about 25 properties by the time the last day rolled around. The buyers had narrowed the selection down to their final three. They were trying to make a decision on which house they wanted to buy: the house that suited their wants and their needs. I recommended we go back and look at all three of them again.

 

It's good for a buyer to look at houses a second time, on a different day, at a different time of day (if possible, in our market of multiple offers).

 

Houses can look different the second time around. The buyer had seen numerous properties, so their perception has changed. The way they look at houses has changed, as they get a better idea of what's on the market, what they want and what their money can buy.

 

Lighting, shadows, temperatures and neighborhood activity change at throughout the day.

 

Often, buyers don't remember certain aspects of a particular property. Or, at first, they didn't think to look for certain things in a property.

 

Buyers can see things in a house differently, the second time around, than they did their first time looking at it.

 

So, whenever possible, it's always a great idea to take a second look, before you write that offer to purchase.

Good advice - memories get jumbled when you look at multiple properties over one or more days - when I have out of town buyers I always try to schedule time to return to the top picks before they head back home.

Sandy - I couldn't agree more. For buyers who already live in the area, I recommend that they get up early and drive to the property that they really like and then commute into work from there and commute back home at least once.  This helps avoid finding out about the commute from Hades after the property has been purchased.

Very true, Sandy. The immediate "wow" may be great but what about later....sort of like that first date! Idea here for a post of my own...

Excellent advice.  When you look at so many houses it is often a whirlwind effect and you forget what you saw even if you take notes and photos.  Sometimes you see a feature you like that you did not think of when you were looking at the first few homes also.

Yes a second look is always a good idea.

Sandy, agreed, once buyers have narrowed down their choices to two or three and are ready to make the offer, it's a good idea to refresh their memory to make sure they didn't overlook anything.
