Going on a site visit is most recommended before investing in a property. Sometimes the pictures can be misleading so it is best to judge the property for yourself. The house may look small in a 2D flat image but in actuality can be spacious. So take the time to go and visit the unit.
But before you call your agent for a schedule, be mindful of the following Site Visit dos and don’ts that you should know!
- List down your questions on the property. Read our home buying checklist and use that as your guide.
- Confirm your site visit schedule with your agent the day before and make sure to have ample time for any extended site visits. You want to make sure that you are not rushing through the place to your next appointment.
- Arrive on time. Filipinos are accorded their own time, Filipino time! But this is hardly something we can be proud of. Your time is important and so is your agent’s. You must remember that they have set aside this schedule for you and no one else. Arriving on time shows you respect the agent, his time and yours as well. If it is unavoidable to be late, due to traffic, etc then let your agent know at least 30 minutes beforehand.
- Leave the kids at home. Unless it is necessary, it is recommended to view the prospect unit on your own or with those who are making the decision with you. You can concentrate on looking over the property without the worry of looking after your kids. Sometimes, the units you may be visiting might still be under construction and may prove dangerous for young kids running around.
- Ask questions. Don’t be shy! Let your agent know what you are thinking so they can better assist you in your house buying journey.
- Take notes for your clarifications and questions on the property using the home buying checklist.
- Read over your notes if your agent has clarified any concerns you may have on the property. If you have unanswered questions, call them up!
Don’t forget to thank your agent for the time! It is important to allot time and effort in inspecting any unit before you make a purchase. Home buying is a dream that must be nurtured and a goal to work towards. So you must make time to do a proper site visit to ensure that you indeed have finally found your dream home.
