Watch any home buying show, and you will quickly notice every buyer has a different set of priorities. Some are looking for move-in ready new construction home, while others are craving a do-it-yourself fixer-upper. While every buyer is unique, there are a few steady and consistent characteristics that the majority of home shoppers are looking for with their new properties. Making yourself familiar with these buyer inquiries can help sell your home quickly and for top dollar. Check with your Doorstep Agent to find out even more options buyers are looking for so you can have a successful and timely sale.
Parking. It may not be at the top of your list when thinking about selling your home, but buyers are looking at where they can park. Be ready to put a positive spin on the parking situation when questions arise.
Internet and phone service. You know what kind of services are available for these in your neighborhood and can give potential buyers insight into what has worked best for you.
The Boiler. Most homebuyers aren’t eager to buy a home where the heating and cooling is inadequate. Newer boilers are a necessity when you are trying to sell your home for the top asking price.
Location. If buyers are looking at your home, they are most likely going to want to know how long it will take to get to work, groceries, entertainment, dining, etc. Be ready with a few answers.
Neighbours. What will the neighbours be like, and will they be okay with parties, kids, keeping our space private, etc? Good neighbours and neighbourhoods are extremely important to any home buyer.Door size. What’s that? The door size? Absolutely! It is a factor for some buyers, especially if they already own furniture. Making sure the furniture will fit in through the doorway is actually a concern for a majority of buyers.
