Buyers start their home search on the internet and proceed to view only the homes that meet their needs and capture their interest.
You want buyers to pick your home above all others and you are the most important source of information that will help get home buyers excited about your home.
The perfect time to start writing notes is while you are preparing your home for sale. Use this as an outline for your notes but don’t limit yourself to these questions and topics.
- Why did you decide to buy this home yourself? (Schools? Location? Views? Privacy?)
- What would you tell a buyer to make them want your home more than any other?
- What things about the neighborhood and community have you enjoyed the most? (Parks and recreation? Neighborhood off-leash dog park? Location to shopping and restaurants? Access to public transportation?)
- What features of your home might a buyer overlook (or not appreciate) if they viewed them quickly? (Custom French doors? 3/4 inch hardwood floors? A hidden storage alcove?)
Buyers are purchasing a home and a lifestyle. Your information can help find the perfect buyer.
