What Not to Say or Do When House Hunting

House hunting can be an exciting and fun experience, but your emotions can get the best of you while you’re looking through a home. Occasionally home sellers may be present or have some device like a home security system that may be recording what you say or do in their home. It is to your advantage that you hold off some of your conversation until after leaving the home and don’t do anything in or around the home that could be offensive to the seller(s).

You could apply the adage, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all,” to best guide you. You probably mean well, but your behavior, opinions or too much information about your situation can potentially put you at a disadvantage point, making it harder for your offer to be accepted. As a buyer, you want to leave little to no room for the sellers to oppose you and your offer. If you keep your emotions in check, you may have a better chance at positioning you and your offer in the best light possible.
