Open house announcement for a charming, move-in ready home for sale in DeLand, FL, with top tips for buyers on the proper etiquette of attending one.
Online PR News – 03-February-2015 – DeLand, FL – Top Deland, FL real estate agent Robert Greene is hosting an open house at 900 Lexington Road, starting February 2 until February 28, 2015.
The house is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom property, with many custom features, located in the Brandywine area. This charming home for sale in DeLand comes with cherry wood cabinets, tile floors, a stunning built-in fireplace, and window treatments, with all appliances included.
“Open houses are a way for buyers to check out the house without making an appointment first, with the listing agent on hand to answer any questions about the property,” says Greene, a long-time realtor from West Volusia county. “One of the advantages of open houses is that you get to see yourself living inside that home. You can explore the property and its potentials.”
Greene has been hosting open houses for more than 36 years now and he shares tips when attending open house events:
1. Let the agent in the Open House know your name.
An open house is one way for the real estate agent to solicit new business, answer questions, and receive feedback on the house. However, it's good for him to let the seller know who has been in their home, for privacy and security issues.
There will be a sign-up sheet to keep track of who has been exploring the home. Fill out the pertinent details on the sheet.
2. Expect the agent to be helpful.
If you already have an agent, share with the host your agent’s name and their business card, even if the you are still in the “just looking” phase of the home-buying process. The host agent will respect your obligation to another agent. Ask questions. Your feedback about the house will be most welcome.
3. Don’t feel like you are being “corralled.”
Real estate agents and sellers are being warned that not all home customers are there for the purpose of looking at the home. Some “prospects” are sometimes investigating for personal valuables and not real estate. Don’t be offended if the host real estate agent wants to keep you in a group.
The open house at 900 Lexington Road, DeLand, FL is just one of several that Robert Greene is hosting. For more details, please visit the real estate agent's website at RobertGreeneRealty.com.
