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.
