Open house survival tips

This is an excerpt from my most recent post at DaytonMostMetro.com. Read the entire post here.

… Let’s talk honestly. Sometimes buyers are a little wary of visiting Open Houses because they assume, rightly or wrongly, that they are going to be accosted by pushy Realtors, so let me give you some tips for making an Open House trip more productive, less painful.

1) Don’t try to avoid the Realtor. We do need a record of who is visiting the home, it’s something we are obligated to do for the sellers.  You wouldn’t want random folks walking in and wondering around your home, would you? No one does, and an Open House doesn’t change that. We know there are a plethora of reasons why people visit Open Houses- we are okay with that, but realize you are a guest and will be expected to sign in with at least a name.

2) About the reasons you are there? Whatever they are, it’s fine. The best thing to do, as always, just be honest about why you are there: You are a neighbor and always wanted to see the home; or you are looking for decorating tips; or you are looking for a home for yourself or a family member- whatever your reason, it’s okay for you to admit it up front.
