Columbus Open Houses Today

Real Living HER, the best open house list in Central Ohio - current list It's not an archive this is a search of current Open Houses!

Real Living's advice to buyers about open houses includes:  

" Q: I've heard that visiting an open house without my buyer's agent means s/he can't represent me in my home purchase. Is that true?

I'd love  to hear from you if you have a comment on the topic of open houses or if you want to buy a home. All comments are moderated so you will not see your comment immediately. Thanks.

A: Perhaps. Real estate rules of representation may prohibit you from being represented by your buyer's agent, under certain circumstances, such as, if you visit an open house without your agent or without immediately disclosing that a realtor is representing you. Since your agent knows your particular set of circumstances, and is working to represent your interests, it's best to arrange your home viewings with your agent. Doing so should not only save you time, but it will also ensure your interests are protected.

Stay in constant communication with your agent. Talk to him/her about which homes you want to see, as well as when you're able to see them. Also, make sure you and your agent have a "plan B" in place for times when a last-minute opportunity for a showing comes up. You don't want to unwittingly shut out any of your home-buying options or be caught without representation."

Real Living is in a number of states and markets so that is very general advice.
