How To Buy Like A Seller
If you’re in the market to buy a home, take a counter-intuitive tip and
imagine the day you’ll be selling it. That’s right – whether you’re a first-time
buyer, or relocating, this home probably won’t be your last. So, look for
features that will pay off when the day comes to move again.
North, south, east or west, the biggest amenity the next buyer will look for is
central air conditioning. In the Deep South, over 90% of buyers rank central
air as critically important, and three-quarters of buyers everywhere else put
it high on the list.
Another often-overlooked feature is storage. Over half of buyers desire a
two-car garage and a walk-in closet for the master bedroom. Ample closets
and storage space just can’t be stressed enough.
If at all possible, avoid costly upgrades and offer incentive down the road by
purchasing an energy efficient home with newer windows, pervasive
insulation, and Energy Star appliances. If the home is already wired for
cable, satellite, and high-speed Internet, so much the better.
Finally, it’s still all about location, location, location. It’s the one thing you
can’t change about the home you buy, so look for good schools (even if you
don’t have children) and proximity to shopping and recreation. If you would like
