Questions to Ask a Real Estate Agent at an Open House

How Many Offers Have Been Made?

real estate agentIf you like the home, don’t be afraid to ask the hosting real estate agent about the number of offers that have been made on the listing. Understanding the competition will help you make a decision about bidding on the property.

When Was the House Last Renovated?

Renovations such as roof replacements and the electrical wiring are not only important, but they can also help you decide if the asking price on the home is fair or within your budget. The last thing you want is to bid on a home and then find that there will still be an extensive amount of money you’ll need to spend on updating it.

Are There Any Issues With the House?

One of the most important questions to ask is whether or not there are any issues with the house. These may include code violations or problems such as water damage or mold.
