Questions to ask a stranger before showing your property

Are you pre-qualified?

If yes, have them send you an email copy and you should follow up with the lender to make sure.

If no, Have them call a mortgage lender you know and get them pre-qualified.

Ask them “Who will be coming to the showing with you?”

Ask if they will be submitting an offer on a generic purchase contract.

If yes tell them you prefer one that's been vetted by your state's department of real estate.

Questions to ask yourself

Can you be available?
