I recently read a blog article by Linda Craft, a member of our CKG Coaching Network, that really resonated with me. I want to share a few of the high points. Home buyers shop for a home differently than most sellers think. Our Greater Columbus real estate market tends to favor buyers. As a result, today’s Buyers are looking to eliminate houses they view instead of choose them.
Eliminate a Home versus Choose a Home
Today’s buyer has many choices of homes to choose from and has the ability to preview as many as their time allows. Using the internet, buyers can preview and “eliminate” hundreds of homes for sale. As they view these homes, they are looking for reasons to eliminate it from their list. The reasons are varied – they may think it needs too much work, is too small, don’t like the color it’s painted, etc. The reality is that the house may be a good fit for them and the reason they choose to eliminate it from the list could be easily rectified.
So What Are Buyers of New Albany Homes Looking For?
Today’s Buyer will continue their search for the “perfect” house – the one they don’t need to do anything to but move right in. They prefer updated finishes in the kitchen, baths, and choice of home hardware. They prefer neutral décor, brightly lit and uncluttered rooms.
When preparing to list a home, Kate & Tony provide Sellers with a complimentary consultation with a professional stager to help make the home “buyer ready.” We want to give buyers looking at your home a reason to choose and not eliminate.
