Sometimes It's Just About The Small Things

 

When talking about our properties, we tend to mention how many bedrooms, how many baths, how many fireplaces, how many acres or how much square footage.

 

Sometimes it's just about the small things.

 

 

 

Sometimes it's about the small things

 

 

 

 

Small, but important, things may be  special to the owner.

 

Maybe the love of birds highlighted in handmade tiles.

 

Maybe the greenhouse window with a tiny cardinal.

 

Maybe the custom designed spice rack.

Right again Margaret, and sometimes those small things that sell a house surprise us! Like, My Grandmother grew Peonie's and now I will have some too...

It is often about the small things when folks are comparing houses.  Fewer steps, direct entry garage, walkout basement - these become BIG!

Margaret, The small things can also mean details ... which all add up and create value to buyers.

Joan Whitebook So important to point out these "small" things that make a house right for the buyer.

Kathleen Daniels It is the details that are easy to overlook and can have a big impact.

Margatet,

For Ron and I, it is always about the outdoor space...it is the feeling we get or don't get, it is about the trees...we listen to the land, the house is secondary for us.  Weird, but so important for us.  A

I am always looking for something unusual that may appeal to a buyer. Some of the things you've mentioned would do quite nicely.

Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland - yes, it's all about those small things! (Everyone is going to ask physical specifications of the home and that's fine. It's about how they feel in the home!)

It can be about the small things that catch someones attention. I've recently started offering a system that's called Mobile Voice Routing that attracts buyer calls by giving the interesting details rather than the price and number of bedrooms to encourage calls.

The small things often mean the most and of course many small things will eventually add up to something big!

Ron & Alexandra Seigel  Have not heard of anyone "listening to the land" but I do understand!

Tammie White Most of us do look for the special and unique features.

Praful Thakkar So true. You are buying the feeling!

Andrea Bedard I have watched you discover the hidden gems in my listings.

Laura Cerrano Yep, sometimes it is just the simple things.

Roger D. Mucci We are all looking for that one special thing that closes the sale.

Alan Gross Giving interesting details...brilliant, rather than giving the price up front.

Brian, And to quote you... ''The small things often mean the most and of course many small things will eventually add up to something big!''

The small things are big things to the right buyer. They know they are making the right decision when the small things stack up.

The small things often give the home its character. These traits also reflect the characte of the people who are attracted to it.

the small things; that's also small gestures and comments made during a visit or a lunch/dinner with someone.

the beauty of a personal relationship is so enriched by "little things"
