How do you like the house?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner 01293735 CA

I personally show most of my listings so I can get right on the spot feedback from the buyer's agent and the buyers too. After they finish viewing the home, I ask them how they like the house? if they like it, I ask them what they like about the house. If they don't like it, I ask them what they don't like about the house and also if there are some things they like about the house. The responses I get are varied. Sometimes I get unexpected responses too. Here are a few:

The house is plain.

One guy spends about 20 minutes measuring 4 rooms and then says that he does not like the lay out of the house. Why would he spend that much time measuring? Is he planning to move walls?

I don't like the carpet.

The husband says the house is too dark. The wife standing next to him says the house is too light.

I don't like the area. (The area they did like was over 20 miles away. Why are they here?)

The closet is too big. (This one takes the cake for me. I never have had a closet that is too big.)

I love the house. I want to buy this house. ( This is my favorite answer.)

Lori,

Aren't clients interesting? And such a challenge. I guess the variety and challenge are part of what interested us when we started this career. Sometimes we get some unusual requests and comments that keep us wondering and jumping to keep up. Never a dull moment.

Yes, it's interesting what drives buyers to set an appt. to look at a home when it doesn't really match their criteria, but I also always try to show my listings to get feedback.
