    As a potential home buyer, it is most likely that you have encountered some type of promotion for an Open House. An Open House is a great way for potential buyers to explore and learn about a home in a casual yet professional setting.

If you're unsure about whether or not you should attend or just a little nervous about going, here is a quick overview of some of the Do's and Don'ts of attending an Open House.

    1.) Do: Be Mindful of Your Attire

    4 Things First Time Home Buyers Need to Know Before Signing on the Dotted Line
