Busy weekend house hunting tips

Blog by Kim Learn | September 4th, 2008

Weekends are the busiest time of the week for

home shopping. No wonder! Saturdays and

Sundays are the only days most people are

available to view homes and open houses.

How do you deal with the crowds and traffic?

Here are a few tips:

• Plan your itinerary in advance.Don’t just drive

around.Make a list of homes you want to see.

• If possible, stick to one geographic area.You’ll

drive less and see more homes.

• Get a sitter for the kids.Only bring them along

for those homes you’re seriously considering


• Avoid the temptation of fast food restaurants.

Take a healthy snack you can eat in the car.

• Pace yourself. Don’t try to do too much in

one day.

House hunting doesn’t have to be a stressful

experience. With some planning, you can make it

a fun adventure.
