I recently read a blog article by Linda Craft, a member of our CKG Coaching Network, that really resonated with me.Â I want to share a few of the high points.Â Â Home buyers shop for a home differently than most sellers think.Â Our Greater Columbus real estate market tends to favor buyers.Â As a result, todayâ€™s Buyers are looking to eliminate houses they view instead of choose them.Â Â
Eliminate a Home versus Choose a HomeÂ
Todayâ€™s buyer has many choices of homes to choose from and has the ability to preview as many as their time allows.Â Using the internet, buyers can preview and â€œeliminateâ€ hundreds of homes for sale.Â As they view these homes, they are looking for reasons to eliminate it from their list.Â The reasons are varied â€“ they may think it needs too much work, is too small, donâ€™t like the color itâ€™s painted, etc.Â The reality is that the house may be a good fit for them and the reason they choose to eliminate it from the list could be easily rectified.Â Â
So What Are Buyers of New Albany Homes Looking For?
Â Todayâ€™s Buyer will continue their search for the â€œperfectâ€ house â€“ the one they donâ€™t need to do anything to but move right in. They prefer updated finishes in the kitchen, baths, and choice of home hardware.Â They prefer neutral dÃ©cor, brightly lit and uncluttered rooms.Â
