Tips for Touring Listings with Children

Searching for a new home can be an exciting adventure, but it can also be a stressful experience, especially when you have young children in tow. It can be difficult to keep them entertained and engaged while you're trying to focus on evaluating potential properties. However, with a bit of planning and preparation, it is possible to make touring properties with children an enjoyable and successful experience.

In this post, I will share some tips to help you navigate the process and find your dream home while keeping your little ones entertained and happy.

Simple Tips for Touring Listings with Children

· Be Safe – First, it’s important to keep your children safe. Do not assume that the home is child-proof, in fact, assume the opposite. Kids love to be curious and poke around. Be aware that there could be dangerous chemicals and products within their reach. Medicine cabinets could have potent drugs and cleaning supplies may be under the sink.

· Be Respectful – Often family homes have toys and other children’s items within easy reach but it’s important to keep your own kids from playing with these toys. It may be a tempting way to avoid boredom, but be respectful of the home. This will prevent any broken or misplaced items.

· Plan Ahead – Remember that your children may get bored or hungry. Keep food and drink in the car to snack on between showings or consider taking turns with a spouse to allow the children to stay in the car with toys or videos. Have them bring a stuffed friend to tour homes with them. If you can, limit the amount of time you're out looking at homes.

Touring properties with children can be a challenge, but with the right approach, it can also be a fun and rewarding experience for the whole family. By keeping your children engaged and entertained, you can focus on evaluating potential properties and finding your dream home.

Remember to plan ahead, bring snacks and toys, and involve your children in the process. With these tips and tricks, you'll be well on your way to finding the perfect home for you and your family.
