If you’re planning to come check out one of the Essex model homes in Greenville, SC then you’ll want to come prepared. Here are some of the things you need to do to prepare to visit a model home. Bringing these things with you to tour model homes will make sure that you have a good experience and can collect all of the relevant information you need to make a prudent decision.
Bring Your Real Estate Agent
We will probably have an onsite real estate agent that you’re more than welcome to use when buying one of our model homes. If you choose, however, you can hire a real estate agent that you know and trust. Regardless, you should be represented by an agent when you tour any model homes. They can help you identify any issues, walk you through the purchase contract, and craft a compelling offer.
Bring Your Wish List
Another thing that you should bring with you to tour model homes is your wish list. If possible, prioritize things by needs and wants. The “wants” on your list should be things that you don’t mind compromising on if everything on the “needs” side of your list is there. If nothing else, having your list with you can help you focus on what is important to you and what other things can slide.
Bring Your Camera or Smart Phone
You might think that you’ll remember how much you loved the wainscoting in the second bedroom, or that the space of the third car garage was perhaps too small to fit your third vehicle. However, these and many more details are likely to be forgotten once the model home is out of sight. Bringing a camera and taking a lot of pictures when you’re touring model homes will help you remember critical features so that you can compare multiple homes much easier.
Bring Your Tape Measure
It’s important to bring your tape measure when you’re touring a model home. Although it seems like a minor issue, if your current furniture doesn’t fit in the new space, new furniture that does fit is an additional expense you’re going to have to save up for. Get measurements for room sizes, length of walls, and closet interiors.
Bring a Trusted Friend or Family Member
Sometimes when shopping for new homes, we get so blinded by our own emotions about the house that we forget to think objectively about it. Bringing a friend or family member whose opinions you trust is a good idea so you can get a second opinion on everything. They’re also a great sounding board for ideas that you want to do with the space when it’s officially yours.
Here at Essex homes, we think that buying new construction homes can be an excellent choice as long as you do some of your research and homework ahead of time. When looking at model homes in Greenville SC, it’s best to bring these things with you to help you stay focused and to make sure you’re making the best choice for you and your family.Model Homes Greenville SC
