Sleep Before You Buy?

There’s a new trend in home buying: spend the night in the home before you make an offer on it.

According to real estate professionals, HGTV’s “Sleep On It” follows potential home-buyers as they spend the night in two homes – with the sellers’ approval, of course – before they decide which one to buy.

While they hasn’t exactly sparked a national trend, more and more potential buyers are requesting to “test out” a potential new home before buying. This can range from a sleep-over – to check out noisy neighbors, to taking a shower – presumably to test the water pressure, to cooking a simple meal – to test out the kitchen facilities.

Truly a sign of a buyers’ market…
