Heck, I bet we would be just as quick to visit ANY unoccupied planet with a habitable atmosphere already in tact.
That way we wouldn't have to compete for any resources found there.
Sure, we would check out other civs too, but I bet we would engage in lengthy diplomatic talks before any open contacts were made.
A couple other things:
1. We should turn our telescopes towards areas in the galaxy where there is no known gravitational pull, or perhaps those areas where gravitation is more or less equal from both sides and start looking for sub-space telecommunication devices.
2. If we ever develop our own sub-space communication system, would it be possible to collaborate with an alien civilization and build matching star gates, teleportation devices, or portals to bridge the gap in space that way?
What about holographic projectors?
