Video Tour Questions - Homebuyers - Coach Realtors

There are six crucial questions that our REALTORS® recommend asking during a video tour. The answers you receive will let you know whether it's the right property for you, or whether it's time to move on down the road to the next house. 

  1. Do You Have Any Concerns?
    This is a broad question, but it is very important to ask when the video tour comes to an end. This allows your Realtor to tell you what they think about the property. Maybe the storage space is inadequate, or perhaps the windows don't allow sufficient light into the home. There may be structural flaws, high utility bills, or an unsavory history of neighborhood problems. Asking this one question allows your realtor to tell you all the flaws and problems they see.

  2. Can You Show Me a Close Up of the Cabinets/Appliances/Fixtures?
    A little polish and a touch of wax can make any cabinet or stainless steel finish look fabulous from afar. However, dings, dents, and blemishes become clear as day the closer you get. So, don't hesitate to ask Mr. Demille to give these the close up they deserve. If there is nothing to hide, the homeowner will happily oblige your request.

  3. How Silent is the Home?
    If you have children or work from home, then you know a silent space is worth its weight in gold. Ask the homeowner how well the home is soundproofed and whether there is additional insulation between walls and floors. It's also a good idea to ask them when the home was last insulated and what R-Value products were used. This is a bonus that can clue you into the home's energy-efficiency and whether or not the furnace is adequate to heat the home in winter effectively.

  4. How Long Has the Home Been on the Market?
    Most Nassau County and Suffolk County homes aren't on the market for long. If the home has been on and off the market for a long time, it could be because the home is overpriced for the neighborhood, has structural defects, or has a negative history attached to it. Whatever the reason, it's not likely you want to try and tackle a problem that can leave you with a poorly performing investment.

  5. What Do You Like (and Not Like) About the Home?
    Homeowners will gladly tell you about the many things they like about their home. They may even wax nostalgic over holiday parties on the patio, birthday celebrations in the dining room, and family gatherings in the yard. Listen to how they answer these questions because they may just hide a few details they don't want you to know; like the fact the neighbors constantly complain about noise, the HOA's rules prevent gatherings, or the water heater doesn't supply enough hot water when guests come to visit.

  6. Are There Any Structural Issues with the Home?
    Listen to the sounds of carpets and flooring as your hosts walk around. Please pay attention to the way hot water heaters, faucets, stoves, and other elements sound when they are in operation. If it sounds over the video, you can bet it sounds worse in person.
