An open house if the perfect time to get information about a home directly from the home’s owner or the owner’s real estate agent. So, don’t miss out on this chance. While at an open house, you can ask questions directly instead of waiting to ask us to ask the seller’s agent to ask the owner a question. Simple conversations with the owner or the owner’s agent can provide a great deal of information about the neighborhood, the home, and any upcoming changes that might otherwise be unexpected.

Other Offers

If the owner is at the open house, forming a connection with them might actually help you out. If they really like you and they want you to buy their home, they might be willing to get into the details of any other offers hoping that your bid and terms will win. See, it is perfectly acceptable to ask the owner or their agent about other offers that have already been submitted. See, this house is their home. For many of us, a home is an emotional investment as well as a financial one. If they raised children or grew up in the home, knowing that the home will be in good, loving hands is often preferred. Few people are able to leave a home they’ve been in for a long time without and regard for who will be living there next. So, if the home really does seem perfect for you and your family, share that information and maybe they’ll share with you what you’d need to do to get your offer accepted!

Circumstances of Their Move

In Midland, people sometimes move, because they are retiring from the industry. Other times, family circumstances are changing. It’s unlikely that the owner would ever disclose that they are moving because of something universally negative, but understanding the circumstances of why they are moving might help you decide to snatch up the home or pass on it. What if they don’t like all the kids playing in the neighborhood? If you have children, that might mean that the neighborhood is perfect for you! The owner’s reason for selling could just be your reason for buying.

Furniture & Appliances

Ask to see any furniture or appliances that will be included in the sale. If you see anything that is just perfect for the home, like a custom made desk that fits perfectly in a nook of the home or a baby grand piano, feel free to ask if there is any way that item can be included in the sale. They may be more than happy to not have to pay moving expense, so it can be beneficial for both parties. Don’t be afraid to ask!
