If you're looking to buy a home on Long Beach Island, you are not alone when you are wondering "Can I use the bathroom?"  It's a DO.  As most buyers on our island come from a distance, and often grab a coffee along the way, it is most certainly okay to use the bathroom in a home.  Just be sure to ask your agent first, as many homeowners have the water turned off during the off season.  As for that coffee? It's a DON'T when it comes to bringing your drink or food into a home.  Although we never expect it to happen, even with lidded cups, spills occur.  If you are wondering if you can take pictures on your cell phone, I say DO.  This is a great way to keep properties clear in your mind and get your questions together for your agent early.  DO NOT, however, post pictures of a home that does not belong to you.  Can you make yourself comfortable on the sofa?  DON'T.  Although a seller wants you to feel comfortable in their home and view it as your own, unless you need to sit for health reasons, please refrain if the furniture is not part of the sale.  However, want to go through the closets?  DO by all means.  A buyer should most definitely look under sinks, in cabinets, in closets, and in spaces where surprises can hide.  If you see something unusual, at inspection time, you can be sure to have it reviewed by your inspector.
