House Hunting – 5 Open House Guidelines
If you are the Open House visitor there are some things that are just not acceptable. With tongue in cheek, here are 5 guidelines for your to remember.
3. The Open House is not a grocery store or your mother’s kitchen. Do not take fruit from the fruit bowl, sample the cookies in the jar or take a handful of candy from the candy dish.
4. The Open House is not a public washroom. Go before you leave home.
5. The Open House is not Holt Renfrew, Macy’s or Winners. You are not shopping for the clothes in the closets.
Unless you are about to put in an offer, right on the spot and without a building inspector, it would be exceedingly inappropriate to run the taps, turn on the oven, climb into the attic, turn on the gas fireplace, try out the washing machine, etc.
