How to make the most of your time at an ‘open for inspection’

Open for inspectionGetting organized prior to the inspection

Most of us have busy work, family and social schedules, which doesn’t leave much time for house hunting. On top of this, buyers are often faced with restricted property viewing times and crowded “open houses”, which can make it even harder to get a feel for the property and the agent’s attention.
Prior to viewing a property for sale, do your homework first. Look through photos online, floorplans, virtual tours and any other information that is available to you. Call the agent (hopefully Aidan Hill)and let them know you will be coming through. Ask them what the price expectations are, land or apartment size and any other key questions (which we will discuss shortly).
If you are viewing multiple properties in one day, create a fact sheet for each as well as clear directions to get to each property. If you are racing from one to the other you don’t want to waste time getting lost. Also make sure you have all of the times correct and neatly listed.
It is also a good idea to do some comparable sales research. Websites like and will give recent sales information at the bottom of the property listing page. This is a great place to start and can be followed up with more in depth research if the property ends up on your shortlist.

If you would like any information on any property please drop me a email.  I am happy to help out or give me professional opinion to you.
