    Don’t be too stuck on your budget

    While it is important to be realistic when exploring open houses in East Vancouver, you shouldn’t get too stuck on your budget.  You will be pre-approved for homes in a certain price range, but shopping above and below that amount can be in your best interest.  In a seller’s market, homes priced below your price point could very well bid into your range.  Similarly, the asking price of more expensive homes will sometimes drop into your range – especially with the help of astute real estate teams in Vancouver.  

    Do your research beforehand

    While it can be fun to visit open houses sight unseen with your BC real estate teams, you will get much more out of the experience by preparing yourself beforehand.  By doing a little research on the home, the neighbourhood, and price compared to similar homes you will gain much more from your actual visit. One good thing to note is how long the home has been on the market.  Generally, the longer a home has been on the market the more flexible the seller could be when it comes to placing an offer.  

    Ask a lot of questions

    All real estate teams in Vancouver will encourage you to ask a lot of questions when you are exploring open houses. The more questions you ask, the more information you will glean about the property, seller, and any details that may not have been obvious in the real estate listings.  Check out the link below for a sampling of questions you should consider asking at each open house you attend.

    At Team Kerr – the premiere realtor team in Vancouver – we think that attending open houses is one of the most fun steps of the home buying process.  If you are ready to dive in, give us a call today to start your home buying adventure!
