3 Etiquette Rules Every Home Buyer Should Know

There are etiquette rules every home buyer should know. In This short post we’ll discuss 3 of those rules, including: avoiding excessive multiple visits, removing shoes and considering adjustments.

Below are 3 etiquette rules every home buyer should know:

Avoiding Excessive Multiple Visits

“One, two, or even three visits are typically acceptable prior to making an offer,” Ameer says. “If you must return more than that, make sure this is a home you are seriously considering.”

All those visits are not only an inconvenience, but they could also make a seller extremely anxious, especially if a buyer comes to the house five times and is never heard from again. Remember, you will have inspections and access to the home again, so don’t waste a seller’s time with too many visits.

Removing your Shoes

Not everyone was a fan of the couple’s rules, though. Some felt that in this housing market, you shouldn’t do anything that might put potential buyers off.

“I suspect these sellers also make you remove your shoes upon entering their house…which I find disgusting.” – Kristin

“One seller made my husband take his shoes off and almost didn’t let him in the house because his clothes were a little dusty. We were insulted.” – Joyce

Does it offend you when homeowners expect you to leave yours at the door? I just do it automatically, whether there’s a sign or not.  Source: Hookedonhouses

Considering Adjustments

Sellers and/or agents cannot always accommodate an immediate appointment. In many instances, at least three phone calls, and three conversations must take place before an appointment is confirmed. If just one person is unavailable, it will delay a prompt appointment. All of that is assuming the agent can go on a moment’s notice- which is not always the case

If you are working with an agent who is on vacation, or away for the weekend, do not call the listing agent to show you their listing. For that matter, do not call any other agent other than the one that is covering for your agent while they are away for any reason. It’s quite disrespectful to your agent, as well as the other agent. Ask your Realtor who to call in case he/she will be away for any amount of time. Source: CTNews

What Our Clients Say

“I think Gary’s a very professional Realtor, that’s not just coming from me as a Mentor, it’s because I’ve worked with him, he truly cares about the client… You want to work with someone who is caring.”

I know so much realtor, but he’s the best one. Once I talk to him about the investment, he’s thinking, “Okay, this is the only person I trust.” Usually I just refuse to have any connecting with a salesperson or a realtor, but he’s only the exceptional one. Make friends with him.”

“It’s because of [Gary’s] knowledge, his insight, the way that he analyzes and he’s able to put real estate in perspective… he really is genuinely interested in me and what i’m looking for, that blew my mind… because he knows the market and he specializes in the luxury market he’s really able to provide that insight”

“The word professional sums up Gary, extremely knowledgeable… extremely honest, he didn’t sugar coat things… Gary will get it done, he’s done it for me, he’s done it for lots of people I know.”
