Open Houses are one of the best ways to see a home you might want to buy, so we have some tips to get the most out of your Open House experience.
Do: Discuss the open house with your agent.
The best part about working with an agent is that they can get you individual appointments in the houses that you like best, so communicate with them about which of the houses that you visited are worth viewing again!
Don’t: Forget that the agent in the house works for the seller.
The agents that are in the house are there to answer your questions, but they aren’t there to help you write an offer. If you are interested in buying the home, reach out to your agent so that they can get in touch with the seller’s agent.
Do: Guard your privacy.
Real Estate is all about negotiation, so try not to be too transparent about your budget or how much you love the home. If you are interested enough to put an offer in, be sure to let your agent do all of the talking, they might be able to negotiate you a better deal!
Don’t: Be rude.
If you don’t like a home, briskly walk through it and observe, but there is no need to be unnecessarily rude. Homeowners are sometimes on the premises, and it’s not a good look to go into someone’s home just to speak poorly about it.
Do: Stay attentive.
Pay attention to what the other potential buyers are saying and observe how many others have signed in before you. Not only is it good to know what your competition is thinking, they may have also caught something crucial about the property that you missed!
Do: Consult a Local Realtor
Purchasing a home in today's competitive real estate market can be a giant undertaking. If you are like most people, you'll probably want some advice along the way.

Our dedication to you and your understanding of the home ownership process sets us apart. We offer a FREE, No Obligation Home Buyer Consultation, during which you will discover every step of the process, different financing options and home buying programs that may be available to you, a real time technology program that puts the latest real estate listing updates in the palm of your hand and much more!
Modernizing your kitchen.
You’re probably thinking about how this is common sense, but it never hurts to be reminded! Kitchens are the focal point of the home, therefore renovating the kitchen is always worth it. Bathrooms and kitchens sell homes, so if you would like a quick sell, make sure the kitchen is up to date!
Inground pool or hot tub.
… At least not in New England. The problem with pools is that in most markets they are not considered a necessity, they are simply an insurance burden and safety concern. If you are adding the pool for your enjoyment, then go right ahead! But, if you are simply looking for a way to bring value to your home, there are a lot better ways to spend that money.
Updating your bathroom.
As I stated earlier, Bathrooms and Kitchens sell homes. A brand new beautiful shower, fresh paint, and modern flooring will bring your house to the next level!
If you are looking for an immediate return on your investment, then this is not it! You should be adding an addition because you don’t want to move or because it is the best financial decision for you, not because you want to make a quick extra buck when you sell your current home.
Let your green thumb run ramp-id if you want to add value to your home in a quick and inexpensive way! A beautiful landscape will always catch the eyes of buyers, so investing in flowers and mulch can go a long way when it comes to quickly selling your home!

Well, if you are looking to buy a property, new mortgages are capped at $750,000 for purposes of home mortgage interest deduction, down from the $1 million cap that we had through 2017. The cap on mortgage interest reverts back to $1 million in 2026 regardless of when the home was purchased.
Unless you have three-quarters of million dollars to put down on a house, that new tax law doesn’t exactly affect you. But, there is a new tax law that will affect almost all homeowners, and that is that tax deductions are capped at $10,000 for state and local sales, income and property taxes.
In states like New York, California and Massachusetts where home prices and property taxes are high, this change means some homeowners could face bigger tax bills beginning this year. The only way to take advantage of deductions related to homeownership is to itemize your tax returns.
And because the GOP tax bill roughly doubles the standard deduction for all taxpayers — i.e., it goes to $24,000 from $12,700 for married couples — the combined value of all your available deductions would need to exceed that new amount for itemizing to make sense.
There will be a lot of changes this upcoming year, and only time will tell how exactly they will affect the housing market.
