As real estate agents, we know finding your dream home in Rockdale County can be a long process, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. After all, why would you want to rush into one of the biggest investments of your life? However, there are a few things you should definitely avoid if you want to make this process easier:
1. Making Plans for the Afternoon
As we mentioned before, house hunting is a long process. If you are rushing through tours because you have plans afterward, you may miss some important details. Be sure to build your schedule in such a way that you have plenty of time to see every nook and cranny of a house that you like. After all, if you decide you want to make an offer, that’s at least another hour you’ll spend in your potential home.
2. Being Ill-Prepared for the Day
Nearly every home you visit will have new carpet. As such, you will likely have to take off your shoes each time. Wearing shoes that require untying every time can become really aggravating, really fast. Slip-ons or flip-flops are your best choice. In addition, avoid your normal coffee or other beverages and snacks that may have you spending time in the restroom. Sellers usually aren’t too keen on having potential buyers using their bathroom.
3. Not Trusting Your Agent
Your agent is there to help you; trust that they have your best interests in mind. If you don’t like something about the house, tell them so they don’t show you properties with similar flaws. Whenever possible, ride with your agent to different homes so you don’t get separated or lost. Moreover, never visit a property alone. It will seem like you aren’t represented, and a seller may try to take advantage of that.
By avoiding these common mistakes, you and your agent can see as many houses as possible. There are many beautiful homes for sale in Rockdale County, and we want to help you find the perfect one for you. Contact the team at Dottie & Kate today to get started!
