DAY 2: Visit homes
The second day is the day to dive in and start seeing homes. Your relocation real estate agent should be able to plan a route to help maximize your time and keep you from driving back and forth across the city. Set the goal of visiting 6-8 homes – a couple in each of the areas you like.
Wear comfortable shoes, carry some water, take time for a lunch break – it is going to be a long day.
As you see homes be sure to rank them for your agent – tell them which ones you like the most and the least. It will help them get to know your preferences and dislikes when it comes to a home. It can also help you cross off some homes without even seeing them. Maximize time spent looking at homes you actually like in areas you love.
At the end of Day 2 of your relocation house hunting trip, you’ll want to have a couple of homes on the shortlist of possibilities.
