The 3 Things Buyers Look For When Buying A Home


As Long Island REALTORS®, we deal with a variety of requests from home buyers during their search for a home or condo. The following are the most popular requests we receive...

1. Location, Location, Location


Location is certainly at the top of the list.  Whether they want Nassau or Suffolk County, North Shore or South Shore, want to live near family, want a more leisure lifestyle, want to be in a particular School District, or want to live near work, location is very important.


2. Price Range


Although this number can change, price is an important factor when deciding where to move. Many times it can be an unrealistic price range, but once they start looking, they realize what the real number should be and we stay within those guidelines.


3. Move-In Ready


When looking for a home, many buyers want a Move-In Ready residence. Older buyers have gone through many updates while living in their previous homes, and younger buyers don't want to do the work. Yes, there are exceptions, and taking into account the 2 previous requests mentioned, a more established neighborhood may be the right choice. However, buyers usually start with "I don't want to do any work, and I want Move-In Ready". So, that's where we may start.


Bottom Line:


When you're ready to buy a Long Island home or condo, start the experience with Lawrence and Sheila Agranoff.

Good morning Larry and Sheila. The juggling act begins with number three, then number one followed by number two. Then based on number two and the desired number one you begin the discussion on number three. Repea as necessary and don't drop any balls! Enjoy your day.

Good morning, Sheila and Larry... guess what! Charlotte region home buyers are just like Long Island home buyers! The move-in ready issue has been a big one for a few years now and getting bigger.

People looking on Long Island are no different than any other buyer.  Location is always key as is not having to do anything to the new purchase except enjoy it.

Long Island sellers and buyers need to just follow the trail of success to call you

Hello Sheila and Larry - what I have noticed over the years on this planet - the definitions for real estate buying motivation varies greatly by individual.  That is determined through a connection with the right real estate professional.  And on Long Island that begins with a request for your services.
