Should Model Homes Be Sold At A Discount?
Good morning ladies and gents! Today's post is going to be a little different from me. Instead of this being an informative post I want to make this more of a "what's your thought on this" type post.
Yesterday I was out looking at homes in the Cordova Tn area and I stopped to go view a model home that caught my eye. There were two groups of people already there when I arrived who were also doing a walk through of the home. Because the house was nice and in a great neighborhood I'm sure many people have been in the home to view it.
It made me wonder, with so much traffic going in and out of the home for an extended period of time should that model home be listed for a discount compared to a newly constructed home?
Are These Good Reason's To Justify A Reduced Price?
- Foot Traffic: There is going to be a lot of people who will have gone in and out of a model home. That traffic will lead to scuffs on the floors and possible minor damage to certain areas of the home.
- Location: Most model homes seem to be located in the front of subdivisions. That's going to mean high traffic and noise at all times. Of course these are issues tha you could have to face no matter if it's a model home or not.
What Are Your Thoughts?
It may be a simple answer to this question but it's something that made me wonder. How much leverage should you have when negotiating price on a model home? I'm sure there are other potential buyers who may be thinking the same thing as they are walking through that model home.
Until next time........I'm Out
