Viewing properties is always fun. When we do it with our clients, we are a bit outside of the box. There is nothing left to chance with our preparation. The Listing Agent must be communicated with before I will take a client into the home they have for sale.
I will never waste a client's time by showing properties that are already in a "secure" escrow. Those properties that our clients have ZERO chance of purchasing.
Some don't do it this way. I have never understood why. The preparation time allotment is close to the time that the actual viewings take place. Maybe that is the reason - but I'm rambling.
"With all of the Short Sales that are showing "active" - but aren't. With the foreclosures that the banks leave the "offering" door open for 21 days in some cases. With the Standard Sale Sellers that have been convinced by their agent's that they are holding a pot of gold. There are a lot of "personalities" in the real estate resale game that need to be contended with."
Be Safe and get good advice from those who you are choosing to represent you.
