What are buyers looking for?
Guess you can say it depends on the buyer.
Start by asking questions?
Are they looking for the best price for resale and/or appreciation?
Are they looking for a location with proximity to work, relatives or schools system?
Are they looking for a fenced yard for their toddler and that puppy?
Are they looking for a lifestyle?
Are they looking for a special feature...large space for tournament ping pong?
Are they looking for space for their home office, gym, music room or workshop?
Are they looking for a studio for photography, painting or ceramics?
Are they looking for an area conducive to homeschooling?
Are they looking for space for a relative with special needs?
Are they looking for land to grow their own produce?
Are they looking to "get away" from it all?
Are they looking for a walk score and no need for a car?
So many reasons that buyers have for wanting a home.
It all starts with listening to the buyer and then helping to guide them to homes that may fit their needs. We are not just selling sticks and bricks but rather introducing them to possibilities that could work.
Just because a home has 3 or 4 bedrooms, there are many other uses for those spaces other than sleeping.
Careful when looking for that perfect home that you don't overlook bonus spaces and unique areas for unique needs.
A recent example:
When looking at a possible listing, the sellers were told that you couldn't call a room a bedroom if it was in the lower level. This lower "bedroom" had windows, closets, a door to the outside and a full bathroom. This "bedroom" could have been a home gym, private office, music studio, guest room, in-law suite, playroom and yes even a bedroom.
Don't be so quick to label a space. Have some imagination.
