These are the four things a buyer needs to have whenever they are out looking for a home.
The flashlight is self explanatory...you need it for crawl spaces, electric boxes, utilities, reading dates on hot water heaters, checking electric panels and so much more.
The ping pong ball is a great little toy to see if a surface is level...yep there is an app for a level but the little white ball makes more of a statement.
The pliers are mandatory if you must know what is under that wall to wall carpet.
Do not, and I repeat, do not do this without permission.
Your Realtor® should have a pair but as a buyer be prepared.
By the way we are talking about a very tiny pair...you can pick them up for a dollar or two.
At first I only had three but added a fourth when I listened to some buyers at one of my open houses. They were talking about whether the piece of furniture inherited from great great grandma would fit in the house.
It would have been real convenient it they had measured that space, made note and then checked the sizes in the homes. Yes there are measuring apps on the smart phones.
You can use your smart phone for three out of four but you still need the pliers.
Are you and your buyers prepared?
