TIPS ABOUT MARKETING YOUR HOME!!!!!!THE INFORMED BUYER OR SELLER!!!!

 

 ARTICLE COMPLIMENTS OF "MORRIS REAL ESTATE MARKETING GROUP" AND PROVIDED BY GEORGE CARROLL AS FOLLOWS:

 

 

There is probably a long list of things you need and things you

want in your next home.But putting them all on a single list would

be a mistake.

Why? Because buyers who separate what they need from what

they want are much more likely to find a home that meets all

their requirements.

For example, say you want a home that is close to a golf course but

you need it to be in a neighborhood that has a good local school.

If you hold out for both,you may miss some great opportunities on

the market. Or worse, you might mix up your priorities and

become so excited by a house that's a block away from a country

club (what you want) that you fail to realize that the nearest school

(what you need) is several miles away.

That's why you should create TWO lists when you shop for a home:

a needs list, and a wants list.

Your needs list might look something like:

  • Four decent sized bedrooms
  • A sidewalk in front of the home
  • A double car garage
  • A playground within walking distance
  • A clean, safe neighborhood.

Your wants listmay include:

  • A finished basement
  • Hardwood floors
  • A large deck
  • Fine dining restaurants nearby
  • Backing onto a ravine or wooded area.

Does all this mean you can't get the home you want, just the home

you need? Not at all! By having two separate lists, you can make

the best decision.You can make sure you find a home that meets

all your requirements and, ideally, one that offers as many of the

"extras"as possible.

 

 

When shopping for anything-clothes,

CD players, even homes-it's natural to

look for a bargain.We all want to pay the

lowest price possible.

However, this attitude can get in the way

of finding, and getting, the home we

want. In fact, many people miss great

opportunities because their price

expectations are too low.

Find out what the current market price is

for the type of home you're considering.

Then set your expectations accordingly. If

you do, you'll stand a much better

chance of finding the home of

your dreams.
