Ask Your Child Before Buying a Home!

Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart Real Estate BR632450000

From my experience, always ask your child about the home you are thinking of Buying. Why? Have you noticed than when an adult and a kid are looking at the EXACT same thing they see things from a completely different perspective? (Photo of Family- White77 Pixabay)

For example, when looking at a new home the kids may be looking at features completely differently from their parents. The kids playing on the street, the park, the swimming pool their room and the yard.

Let me use this analogy.

Kids Perspective 

The winning title from the Kid's Perspective was, "Never Swallow Your Chewing Gum!"

Same with buying a home, Mom looks at the upgraded kitchen. Dad looks at the garage and office or a multi generation home guest room. The kids go straight to the Backyard, pool and sandbox. Right?

Jeff you make an excellent point, a hundred years ago when I started out, I was running around as a buyer's agent with a lovely family.... the father indeed looked at the garage and where there was a home office (yes ahead of the times) she looked at the kitchen and the bathrooms and that darn child always looked at the back yard.... we lost out on at least four wonderful properties because of the back yard:) when the child cried.... I was ready to take action.... and when the child loved the back yard I was ready to take action against the parents.... ultimately we found the right house and I sold that house and they bought another house six or seven years later... so we were all very content:)Endre

Roger that Endre Barath, Jr. the Children RULE, followed by the wife maybe. Husband, usually he just says "yes honey".  Parents do feel guilty about moving the child away from their past school and friends. Jeff 😎

Hi Jeff... totally get your points... but coming from a generation when kids were not involved in housing decisions it feels somewhat alien to me to involve kids in adult decisions.
