You Should Visit Homes when it’s Raining

     A question I get often from home buyers is…”should we cancel our scheduled showings for today, it’s raining?”  My reply comes extremely fast, “NO, this is a perfect time to see your future home.  We have more days of sun than rain, but rain can do more damage so this is a blessing in disguise, let’s go!!!!”  Bottom line, if your saftey is not put at risk, a rainy day visit is a GREAT idea. 

     Do not put yourself in harms way…do not drive through standing water if you ar not 100% sure that it’s safe.  Also be mindful of tornadoes, hail and lightning.  So if it’s a pop up storm, you might get to see how your home and property reascts to the rain.  Does the water pond in the backyard?  Are you being flooded by the neighbors draining.  Are the streets flooded, for how long.  These are questions you cannot view for yourself on a sunny day.

     Preparing to view a home in the rain is a little different and it’s mostly about trying to stay dry.  Rain coat, check, rain boots, check, umbrella check.  Under sunny conditions you would look at the front of the home, pan around to the neighbors and then go in the home.  When it’s raining your going to want to do more walking around the front of the home, viewing where the water is coming off the roof and where does it go from their.  I have actually made paper boats so my clients could visually see where the water is flowing.  Do all of your outside stuff first, then gather at the front door.  Now it’s time to take off your rain boots, your rain coat, collapse your unbrella and leave everything outside.  Yes, leave everything out side.  You do not want to track water or mud through your potential new home. 

Let me know if your ready for a rainy day visit, I’m here to help you to…Live Life to the Fullest.  Scott Culberson, Broker Associate, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Gary Greene, Email-Scott@ScottCulberson.com

An Excerpt From my Book: Jack and Jill Go Up the Home Ownership Hill

Something a little different…an Excerpt From my Book: Jack and Jill Go Up the Home Ownership Hill:

“We return to our heroes Jack and Jill, with Jack returning from his monthly visit to the doctor.  “Jill, I’m back, Jill,”  shouted Jack as he entered their tiny condominium. “Yes Jack, I know you’re home, I could hear you when you walked up, through these paper-thin walls,”  said Jill crossly. “SOOO, get on with it, how was your appointment with Doctor Foster,”  enquired Jill?  “He told me that, yes, indeed, I have a brain and it appears to be mended.  ANNNNNND, no more monthly visits,”  Jack smiled.  “Perfect, Jack, it’s time for us to dive into our next check point,”  said Jill eagerly.  And this is what they read:

[ ]Chapter 5 Keep AN OPEN MIND

When you are searching for your next home you MUST keep an OPEN MIND. Unfortunately, your next home will not come alive and tell you, “I’m the perfect home for you,” while trumpets play, and confetti falls from the sky.  You will pick your next home by taking the time to research and visit the homes.  It is kind of like an interview process…you will interview many before you find the best fit for your needs…”

That is just a small excerpt from Jack and Jill Go Up the Home Ownership Hill The Home Buyer Checklist You’ve Been Looking For.  This book is available in paperback and Kindle versions on Amazon.com or contact me for a complimentary copy.
