Spending an afternoon visiting open houses around the city is a fantastic way to get the inside scoop on many fantastic MLS listings all across Edmonton and the surrounding area. A huge part of our job is to help clients make the most informed decision possible based on their specific and unique needs. This is why spending time on location in order to get a feel for a particular property can often give buyers the best picture of what a particular listing truly has to offer. While viewing listing photographs and raw real estate data is certainly valuable, viewing a property in person is definitely one of the most important parts of the buying process. The Edmonton real estate market is constantly fluctuating, especially as many newer areas of the city continue to develop and more mature areas begin to modernize = the Downtown arena district and Whyte Avenue are perfect examples of this. By figuring out what exactly makes one property slightly different from the next - intangibles such as neighbours and lot size, special features and amenities, and access to green space - investing time in visiting several open houses can pay big dividends when it becomes time to put in an offer on a home.
Another great reason to attend an open house is the exposure it gives potential buyers to the surrounding neighbourhood. Seeing schools, playgrounds, parks, and shopping/entertainment options first hand can make your purchasing decision much easier. Open houses can also act as a bit of a buffer between the pressure of visiting a particular property individually, as there will be other people walking around the home and asking questions as well. It really is a great way to narrow down exactly what you are looking for in a home, as you get all the benefits of carefully browsing a property on a room by room basis while also being free to do so at your own leisure - in other words, you get the best of both worlds!
