Should the Children Look at Homes in the Lexington KY market?
Should the Children Look at Homes in the Lexington, KY market?
This question really depends on you and your Realtor. Based on my experiences and what my clients have told me, it is best to bring the children along only when the final selection process is in order. This is simple once you ask yourself these questions:
1. Are your children up for a grueling day of house hunting?
2. Will you be able to give homes the consideration they need if you are watching the children at the same time?
Many parents choose to bring in the children when the selection process is down to 5 homes or less. It is important to let the child have a say and express his/her thoughts. One thing you can count on is when they are ready to join us for house hunting; I will make sure I have created them a book full of pictures and information on the homes we will see. This really draws the child in and makes them feel like a part of the journey.
