Tomorrow we go to look at yet another house...we're very hopeful about this one (with pictures)
Disappointment after disappointment in the house search has given us little hope of finding a decent house in our price range.

Tomorrow, however, we're going to look at a house we are very hopeful will be nice for us and our (hopefully) growing family.

It's about three times the size of our current house. It was originally a duplex but was converted to a single family. The reason we're hoping it's what we want is the location. It's within walking distance of the school, the library, the barber we go to, our bank and a few other places we go to. I'd like to be able to have my family so close, especially to parks and the library.

So...because we want to like it so much I'm afraid it's going to be awful or sold already or something. My luck doesn't generally win out.

Here's a few of the pictures they have listed with the house:

1. I'm with you on the walking distance.
Good luck, both on the house and your son.

6. Some advice I once got from a friend in RE. (paraphrased because I don't remember verbatim))
Edited on Sun Nov-06-11 05:20 PM by Chan790
If you really think you're interested in a place before you see it and are prepared to possibly make an offer upon seeing it, communicate that to your RE agent. An agent, armed with that information, can often communicate it to a buyer's agent in a way to insure that they don't accept an offer before you see it. What it costs you is leverage though...the buyer then knows your interest is very strong and thus that you're less likely to walk away if they reject your lowest offer and stick closer to asking price.

It does present you with an opportunity to make an offer on a property that you're strongly interested in though and think might be off the market before you can see it. Be prepared though to make an offer at/after the showing if you communicate to the agent that you're likely to. (Doing this repeatedly and not making offers makes you and your agent seem not-credible.)
