Home Buyer Viewing Code of Etiquette

In today’s world of high security, video cameras, nanny cameras and audio monitors, it is becoming common for sellers to not only monitor who is in their home and when they were there, but also listen to every word that is said by a potential buyer.

For these reasons, we have created a “Viewing Code of Etiquette” that we would encourage our buyers to consider when they are in another person’s home whether a home is being monitored or not.

  • Buyers are there as guests – Although the seller’s goal is to sell their home, buyers should give the same respect that they would want when people were in their home.
  • Respect the property – Buyers should refrain from opening dresser drawers in any bedroom and should they need to use the restroom, always flush and clean up.
  • Control the kids – We love children, but children need to be supervised and need to stay with the group and not wonder off. Playing with toys that belong to the kids of the seller should be left in place and not played with.
  • Don’t make negative comments about the home – Comments about the furniture, the family pictures, or the homeowner’s choice of paint color should be made after you’ve left the house. Negative comments can be taken personally and might estrange negotiations.
  • Don’t rave about how perfect the house is – You can negate much of your negotiating strength if the sell knows that the house is exactly what you’re looking for and you could easily end up paying too much for the property.
  • LEAVE A CARD! – People like to know if someone has been in their home.
  • Follow the directions – Agents put directions in the MLS for a reason. Day Sleepers, alarm codes, pet’s directions or you may need to call the agent before showing. Don’t get off on the wrong foot with the listing agent by not following the directions in the MLS.

As you can see the Home Buyer Viewing Code of Etiquette is as much for the Realtors as it is for the Buyers. The Bigelow Group Realtors at Coldwell Banker Select try to follow this Etiquette do you?

     Open House in Falcon Ridge Estates

In the middle of your Memorial Day festivities, feel free to come check out my Open House that is in an awesome neighborhood! The neighborhood is Falcon Ridge Estates in Bixby, Oklahoma. Driving around the neighborhood, you notice everyone living there takes great pride in caring for their beautiful homes. The neighborhood is perfect for families of any ages, but people with younger kids get the extra perk of a playground for their children to play on. Something everyone is sure to enjoy is the neighborhood pool! Personally, I’m envious of anyone living in an area with a neighborhood pool because you get the best of both worlds. A pool within walking distance to your house, but without all the hassle of cleaning, treating and general upkeep a pool in your backyard entails.

My Open House is being held at 14348 S. Urbana Place Bixby, OK 74008 from 2-4 on Sunday, May 28th. This house is gorgeous and move-in ready! It’s a four-bedroom home with an open floor plan, great master bathroom, huge living room and perfect entertainer’s back patio. Another huge plus to this house? It qualifies for USDA Rural Development loan. If you are not familiar with that type of loan, it basically means no down payment for you!

This house is ready for a family to move in now and have fun all summer long at the pool, playground and White Hawk golf course only half a mile away. I hope to see you Sunday!
