While technology is getting better every day, you can only spend so much time online searching for homes before taking the plunge and touring them in person. A website is not going to tell you about barking dogs in the neighborhood, or a flight path over the house of your dreams. Attending an open house in the Tenafly, New Jersey area is the perfect way for a homeowner or first-time buyer to get the true feel of a home, neighborhood, and surrounding community. Tami Rapaport’s team of real estate experts host many open houses throughout the Tenafly area and are ready to answer your questions about homes and home buying.

Why Attend an Open House?

Sure, it’s easy to look at homes via the internet but attending an open house will give you the opportunity to interact with an experienced real estate agent and ask important questions like: What are the schools like in the area? What improvements have been made to the home? Is there water damage? You will also be able to “kick the tires” and check for wear and tear and inspect the foundation before you commit.

Potential home buyers can also learn about other properties listed by the real estate agent and inquire about taking a tour. Other benefits include helping a buyer narrow down their list of selections and decide which qualities they like best. Granite counters might sound nice on paper, but they might not reasonable for your cooking style. Attending an open house is also a fun way to check out homes with no pressure to commit.

An open house is a great way to meet and interact with real estate agents if you haven’t already chosen one. You can develop a rapport, ask questions, learn more about their experience and share with them the kind of home you’re looking to buy.
