Edmonton Open House Protocol
Welcome to our Open House!
When real estate agents host an open house, the ultimate goal is to sell the home. The agent who is hosting the open house is representing the seller, has already spent time and money making the property show its best and anyone who walks through the door needs to understand, the agent will be asking you questions.
If you are only looking for decorating ideas or you are already under a Buyer's Brokerage Agreement, let the hosting real estate agent know as soon as you walk through the door. We have Rules, Regulations and a code of Ethics, whereof, we are not allowed to interfere with other REALTORS® Clients. However, if you are not currently working with a real estate agent, REALTORS® are always looking for new business and will be able to answer questions you may have.
If you are interested in the property under a buyer brokerage agreement with another agent and would like more information on the home, call your current agent. Anything you tell the hosting real estate agent may be disclosed to the sellers and in the event, you write an offer on this property, information can be used against you in negotiations. It is our job to work in the best interest of our clients which would include informing the sellers of all interested parties.
Real Estate Agents are also responsible for ensuring the proper care of the home while showing. If you have children, please hold their hands and don't be offended if the REALTOR® is following you everywhere.
