I almost never take clients out to look at houses.  I will however take them out to buy their home.   World of difference in setting the expectation and reason for going out . Otherwise you have a very expensive social hobby.

If their intent is to buy in Nov 2017, I don't get the wagon in front of the horse.

I will take them on a orientation ride which will involve looking at a few houses.  About 8 weeks before the lease is to expire, we get to the serious looking. The biggest job is swatting the other agents away.

That means engaging in dual activity  real estate stuff  such as a ride along for CIS Score for similar houses keeps the relationship fresh and loyalty high.

It depends on when they need to get the home.  One time I had a buyer with a pre-approval letter but didn't need to move (from the apartment) until 4 months. So I showed him some homes for him to get an idea of what he can get for the money. Then we re-group again when it was time to purchase a home.

How soon can they get into my car?  I have their requirements from the get-go and have already compiled a listing of homes to show them.  I talk with their lender for a verbal on if their desired price range seems good and then once that pre-approval (with full doc review and underwritting) is in, I confirm the price range and we're off to the races!
