What do buyers really want?
Most buyers have in mind what they want when searching for a home. How do you know which house is right? Most homes are not going to be a perfect fit, but as long as the home fulfills most of their needs, they will be happy.
In the book, The Everything Guide to Being a Real Estate Agent by Shahri Masters, the average buyer wants the following things:
â€¢ Value: a quality home for a good price.
â€¢ Prestige: prestigious surroundings; a house to impress others
â€¢ Convenience: easy access to work, school, stores, etc.
â€¢ Security: a secure house in a safe neighborhood
â€¢ Comfort: a comfortable, â€œwarmâ€ home
â€¢ Aesthetics: an attractive home
â€¢ Privacy: a private location; privacy-conscious architecture and landscaping
â€¢ Entertainment: easy access to entertainment; the ability to entertain at home
â€¢ Health: climate and facilities to promote health and well-being
â€¢ Recreation: easy access to recreational facilities
â€¢ Education: an exceptional school district or other educational facilities
This list is based on a list of basic human needs created by psychologist Abraham Maslow. Most buyers will have two to three primary needs that must be met in order to purchase a home. Buyers should decide ahead of time before they meet with a real estate agent what is important to them. An agent can better help a buyer find a home knowing and understanding what the basic needs an requirements are.
