VIDEO: How many homes should you view before making an offer?
Looking for your perfect property can be an exciting, but how many should you view before choosing your favourite and making an offer?
If the first home that you look at seems perfect, it can be tempting to keep looking around to make sure there is nothing better out there. Be wary, though. You could look for weeks and not find anything as good, and someone could put an offer on the first house in the meantime. It's better to schedule multiple viewings on the same day so you can easily compare and contrast. That way, you know you're making the right decision, even if it's the first property you looked at.
Is there a right number of properties to look at before making an offer? It's different for everyone. Some may fall in love straight away, while others can find themselves looking for a dream home that is too specific and may not exist in their price bracket. Be realistic and make compromises if you have to.
