7 Questions To Consider At An Open House

Open House Sign In Front Of House

Attending an open house can be fun and exciting, but it’s easy to get swept up in the decor, paint scheme, and shiny new appliances. Wise buyers look beyond these items to ensure the home is a right fit for themselves and their families. Check out these 7 questions to consider when visiting an open house.

House Icon With #1Floor Plan
Does it fit your family’s needs? If you have a large family, you may need a big living space compared to a couple searching for their first home. A good rule of thumb is that each person needs roughly 200-400 square feet to live comfortably in a home.

House Icon With #2Neighborhood
Does it have the right vibe? Scope out the neighborhood and connect with people who currently live in the area to see if it fits your lifestyle needs or raises any safety concerns.

House Icon With #3Kitchen and Bathrooms
Are they appealing and functional? Test out any fixtures to ensure functionality. Take a look at the walls to see if you spot any cracks. Large drywall cracks could indicate structural problems.

House Icon With #4Electrical System and Plumbing
Are they up to current standards? This one can be hard to notice on your own at an open house, but you can check the electrical panel to see if there are a lot of exposed wires. You can also test out the water pressure by turning on the faucets.

House Icon With #5School District
Does it have a good reputation and results? If you have children, the quality of public education in the area can be a dealbreaker for you.

House Icon With #6Storage Space
Are there enough closets and long-term storage areas? You want to be sure that there’s enough space for all of the belongings you’re bringing into your new home.

House Icon With #7Homeowners Association
Does the community have an HOA? If the community has an HOA, you may have to follow certain guidelines when it comes to your property as well as pay monthly HOA dues which may cover maintenance costs and some utilities.
