Home Sellers – Know Your Customers

Home Sellers – Understand the Buyers



As the seller, you can control three factors that will affect the sale of your home:


The condition of your home

The Asking Price

Agent you choose/Marketing       strategy


However, it's important to note that there are numerous other factors that influence a buyer. Therefore in order to be successful in selling your home, you need to understand these home buyers’ trends. The more your home matches these qualifications, the more competitive it will be in the marketplace. As your real estate agent, it is my duty to advise you on how to best position and market your home to overcome any seeming shortcomings.



Unfortunately, the most influential factor in determining your home's appeal to buyers is something you can't control: its location. According to the National Association of REALTORS, neighborhood quality is the No. 1 reason buyers choose certain homes. The second most influential factor is commute times to work and school.



While some buyers want to simplify their lives and downsize to a smaller home, home sizes in general have continued to increase over the decades, nearly doubling in size since the 1950s. Smaller homes typically appeal to first-time home buyers and "empty nesters," or couples whose children have grown up and moved out.







Preferences in floor plans and amenities go in and out of fashion, and your real estate agent can inform you of the "hot ticket" items that are selling homes in your market. If your home lacks certain features, you can renovate to increase its appeal, but be forewarned: That's not always the right move. Using market conditions and activity in your neighborhood as a gauge, I will help you determine whether the investment is likely to help or hinder your profit margin and time on the market.


The idea here is that some of the major factors in getting your home sold are under your control.  Start taking control today by Hiring Me As Your RealtorCall 860-704-9070 or email stacystephens@kw.com.
