Tips when attending an open house

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) - If you’re in the market for a new home and stopping by some open houses, here are few things to remember. In a real estate transaction most often there are two agents involved, one representing the buyer and one representing the seller. When you attend an open house be mindful that the agent opening the doors most likely represents the seller. You do not want to share confidential information with them until you know who they represent.
