Home viewing: Write down defects

Real Estate Broker/Owner with MBA Broker Consultants CalBRE Broker #00983670

When you're viewing homes for purchase, write down obvious defects with the property and any questions.  If you see problems or defects, point these items out to your REALTOR®.  If you have any questions, ask your agent.  Keep in mind that she may not have the answers and she may have to ask the listing agent.  So be sure to write down your questions or issues so they can be addressed later on.

Remember you will have the opportunity to request that the seller repair things at their expense.  That’s another reason to write down any possible defects with the property.

Interesting, I have never had clients do that.   I sometimes show up to 20 homes in a day, that could be a lot of notes for the clients.   As an experienced buyers agent, if I have to sum up the buying process in one word it would be Compromise.  All buyers, in all price ranges have to make some compromise(s).  The more we view, the more they understand which compromises the buyers can live with.
