An open house gives you a great opportunity to look closely at Santa Cruz real estate you might be interested in buying. It also affords you the chance to chat with the REALTOR® so you can bring up any issues or hesitations you have with the home. Knowing what to ask can be difficult, so below are examples of questions to ask at the next open house you attend.
Why has the seller decided to sell now?
If you ask the REALTOR® why the seller is moving, you could learn valuable information to help determine your bid. Knowing whether the owners are about to go into foreclosure or they’ve retired south and completely paid off the home can help you decide how urgently they need to sell their Santa Cruz real estate.
