A home showing enables a property buyer to get an up-close look at a residence. After a showing, a property buyer can determine whether a house matches his or her expectations. And if a property buyer likes a house, he or she may be ready to take the next step in the homebuying journey.

Ultimately, a showing is crucial for a property buyer. And if you fail to plan accordingly for a home showing, you risk missing out on the opportunity to identify your ideal residence. Lucky for you, we're here to help you get ready for a house showing and ensure you can use this opportunity to your advantage.

Let's take a look at three tips to help you prepare for a house showing.

1. Create a Checklist

You may have already learned about a home from a listing. However, there is only so much information available in a home listing. But if you craft a checklist prior to a house showing, you'll be better equipped than ever before to get the insights you need to determine if a home is right for you.

Include any questions you have about a home in your house showing checklist. Also, you may want to include areas of a home you want to review during a showing in your checklist.

2. Give Yourself Plenty of Time

There is no reason to rush through a home showing. Because if you fail to allocate the proper amount of time to conduct a showing, you may struggle to obtain the insights you need to make an informed decision about a house.

Clear your schedule for at least an hour before and after a showing – you'll be glad you did. This should give you sufficient time to arrive at a home and take an in-depth look at all areas of the property.

Of course, if you find that one home showing is insufficient, there is no need to stress. You can always schedule a follow-up showing to further review a residence.

3. Consult with a Real Estate Agent

A real estate agent can teach you everything you need to know about buying a house. Plus, he or she can help you get the most out of any home showing, at any time.

Typically, a real estate agent will attend a house showing with you. He or she can provide home insights as you walk around a residence and respond to your property buying concerns or questions. In addition, a real estate agent is happy to provide homebuying recommendations and suggestions. And if you're ready to submit an offer to purchase a home following a showing, a real estate agent can help you do just that.

As you get set to attend a home showing, you should prepare as much as you can. Thanks to the aforementioned tips, you can get ready for a home showing and use this opportunity to decide whether a particular residence will be able to serve you well for years to come.

Ready to take your home to the next level? Here are upscale tech upgrades to make your home smarter than a Furby, cooler than drone and safer than Gringott’s. That last one might seem like a stretch but if three kids could break in how locked down was it really? Anyways,  

The Dyson 360 Eye is an upgraded Roomba. It can be scheduled and operated by phone your phone from anywhere. Which means if you have an impromptu dinner party or the In-Laws are planning to stop by you can start cleaning with a quick tap of your finger. Or you can just set a schedule for it to run a few times a week while you’re at work so you come home to a tidy room.

August Smart Lock is a keyless lock for your home. Instead use your phone as a key which, let’s be honest you always have on you. The best part, however, is that you don’t need to replace your lock and you can still use your key at any time. You can double check to make sure your door is locked and closed on those harried days rushing the kids to the car. entry to home and control who enters home

Upgrade to a curved tv. The curve may seem unusual but it allows for better view no matter where you are in the room. When sitting directly in front of the tv you have the illusion of a wider viewing range as it mimics the curve of our natural sight. Create an immersive experience paired up with a surround sound system.

The Thermasol Microtouch brings the “smart” experience to your shower. Program your preferred settings to have the perfect shower every time. With a heat sensor, you can control the steam shower temperature. And of course, the device comes in several styles and finishes to match the existing hardware in your bathroom

The Dyson 360 Eye is pretty cool but what if you could have a smart lawn mower? Well, the team at Worx built the Landroid just for you. Program the cut height, lawn terrain and even to go back “home” when it’s about to rain. No more running to the gas station to fill up a jug, the Landroid runs off of electricity. It also has safety features to turn off if tipped and pin code access only if stolen.


Upgrade your home tech to upgrade your lifestyle. Spend more time with your family and doing the things you love instead of maintaining your home. Ensure your home is secure and locked up tight for those days you don’t even remember the ride to work. And create a luxury view experience for your home family.
