How many times did you visit a house before making an offer?
Has anyone made an offer after one visit?
We didn't, we visited at least 2 times before we've ever made any offers, this last time I think I would have scheduled a 3rd, private visit (owners were there during both visits) but we really did like it and there was another buyer on their 2nd visit leaving as we pulled up. We were so afraid we'd lose it to them, we just went for it. We did look at many many other homes over several weeks between the first and second visits though so we knew how much this one stood out abouve the others available in our price range.
Fast forward 6+ years and we are now selling that home, it has been on the Market since 4-20. The Realtor held open houses on 4/20 & 4/27 with 4 families coming through during each. We've also had 5 scheduled showings. ALL feedback has been positive although understandably it doesn't fit everyones needs. However, some have said it's on their list of possibilites but there have been no 2nd showings scheduled so far. My realtor said most people, unless they have just started looking, will make an offer after the one visit. "They know it when they see it"
I find this hard to believe but my DH says he can see that. He tells me I tend to linger (look, look, relook and look again) longer than most and have a hard time making that final decision.
So, am I the rule or the exception?
I had hoped someone would have scheduled a 2nd look by now so I'm feeling like I should write off any thoughts that these previous lookers will come back for a closer peek and we have no other viewings scheduled for the weekend so far. :(
