Have comfortable seats available for buyers to relax and enjoy the surroundings both inside and out. Open the windows and let a cool breeze blow through. You could also hire a great caterer to stage tasty, visually appealing food and drink stations around the home. Light candles or start a fire in the fireplace — anything to create a special atmosphere that will give buyers the chance to imagine your home as theirs.

1. Know how much you can afford and focus on properties in your price range. A bank or other mortgage lender can determine what you can afford.

2. Narrow down the area that you want to look in. Do you want to live close to the ocean? Are you looking for a retirement community? Is it more important to have a dock and be on the waterway?

3. Plan ahead to know which houses you want to look at. With so many houses on the market it’s wise to have a strategy. Don’t cram too many into one trip or you’ll wind up confusing them.

4. Bring a notebook and camera to document your thoughts and what you see. They’re useful later when you’re sitting at home thinking about the day’s events.

5. It’s helpful to bring one good friend or relative but a crowd is too much. Everyone has an opinion and their opinion is not necessarily yours.

6. Dress for comfort as you’ll be doing some walking. Wear sneakers or sandals, not heels.
