While you are looking for the open houses there are things you have to consider right from beginning. As you probably found open house on the Internet at the Realtor.ca, you may be unfamiliar with location.
Location, location, location!That is most important thing. You can always do some cosmetic change to the house but you can’t pick it up and move somewhere else. So while you are driving to check out open houses pay close attention to the neighborhood. You could know area well but make sure you see all signs as things are always needed and important later and you can have some feel to surrounding.
Make a list! What are most important or must have things when you are looking to have in the house. Is it big living room area, modern kitchen or maybe swimming pool? Are you willing to do some renovations, painting or just want to move in the ready home? Try to carry list of “must have” things with you so it can help you with decision.
Very often beautiful house can make you blind for other important things. Sometimes you missed out to see things like closet space, number of outlets, condition of the backyard etc. That is why is good to have a list handy.
Check out kitchen cabinets, closets to see if that is space you need. Don’t be shy to open kitchen cabinets or walk in the closets to get feeling of the size. Of course you want open dressers or other furniture that nothing has to do with the home, but whatever stays or is included in the house better check it out.
While you are walking around house try to see if layout works for you. Does it have right number of the rooms and how big you want them to be? Is the price you may want to offer consider work that has to be done, like replacing carpets, painting, etc? Some things like removing walls or replacing kitchen can be very expensive.
