It’s going to be a busy weekend for house-hunters at the Jersey Shore.  Take advantage of the benefits of attending an Open House.  Here’s your opportunity to realistically see what you can afford in the housing market. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask your real estate related questions to a licensed realtor.  Third, you will be able to drive through the neighborhood or perhaps walk the community to see if it feels like home.  Finally, you will learn more about your needs with regard to amenities once you actually preview homes.  Perhaps after visiting several single family homes, you may decide you actually prefer a townhome, where maintenance such as lawn-care and snow removal is included.  Here are some tips on etiquette.  You may be asked to remove your shoes or wear shoe guards, which should be provided by the agent.  Be sure to follow the “sign-in” instructions and introduce yourself to the realtor.  If other perspective buyers are present, respect their privacy and give them some space.  Here is a list of Open Houses scheduled for this weekend (9/28 and 9/29) courtesy of A.J. Dell’Omo, Inc., Realtors in Neptune…have fun!
