What Can You Do During That Showing Appointment?
Okay, so our marketing has done it's job for your Warren County home. You've got a showing appointment and you know why we don't want you there while the buyers and their agent are touring your home, trust us, it's for your own protection. They've scheduled an hour or more window, and we don't know if they'll show up at 10, 10:30 or 10:55 to start their tour. They may only be at your home 5 minutes, or an hour if they absolutely love it.
What can you do with your time? Your options obviously vary according to whether you have toddlers and pets, so here are some choices:
Visit the neighbors. Have a cup of coffee, maybe they've got friends that want to move to the neighborhood?
Park down the street and watch your house. You'll have the inside scoop on the potential buyers and you'll be able to pop back in the minute they leave. Maybe you've got a book on tape to listen to, and DVDs to keep the kiddies entertained.
Head to the local dog park. Let Fido stretch his legs and you get some outside time. Beware the doggie landmines!
Head to a movie!
Go for a stroll in downtown Lebanon. Have a cheeseburger at Village Ice Cream, cupcakes at Frost or chocolate down at Golden Turtle. Browse the antique stores.
Ride the Lebanon Mason & Monroe train.
Go to the local library.
Head to the park. Round of Frisbee golf anyone? Work on your tennis stroke. Jog. Birdwatch. People watch.
Countryside YMCA or Mason Community Center. You could spend all day at either and not run out of recreation.
Go chase the little white ball. LOTS of golf courses in Warren County.
Head to the pool. Don't forget your sunscreen!
Have you ever been to Warren County History Museum or Glendower Mansion?
Go biking on the Little Miami River Trail.
Kayak or canoe on the Little Miami River.
Got a season pass to Kings Island? Go take a few laps on the roller coasters or ride the waves in Soak City!
Play a couple of rounds of miniature golf!
Head down to Cincinnati or Newport. Aquarium, art museum, Taft, The Cincinnati Museum Center, Cincinnati Zoo and a whole lot more.
Go to Dayton. Air Force Museum, more art, more museums, more parks, more choices.
Volunteer work anyone? You can bet the local United Way can give you a long list of organizations in need of some help.
Go to the local nursery and browse the plants you might want for your new home!
Got relatives in the area? Pay them a visit....although after the 20th showing they might tell you to get lost!
Go fishing! Armco Park, Caesar's Creek, Lake Isabella. They all make it easy.
Weekend? Head to the flea market! Several to choose from and you can spend hours wandering the aisles and booths.
Outlet centers. Another place to get lost for days.
Entertrainment Junction. The kids will LOVE this one. How can you go wrong with trains?
Try that new restaurant, especially if it's lunchtime. Prices are cheaper and you'll find out if you want to go back for dinner.
Get the feeling we're just scratching the surface? You're lucky enough to live in Warren County, so you've got the luxury of MANY choices! They don't call Warren County Ohio's Largest Playground for no reason!
