My partner and I were talking about the importance of marketing and the challenges that you might face when trying to sell a house. It’s a common occurrence that we’ve had in our lives, especially when it comes to selling our home. The typical response is something along the lines of “I have to get a down payment, and then all my work is done.” I’m sure you’ve heard that before.
Yes, I agree. The real value of a home is in the equity. And yes, that includes money spent on marketing. But in the end that is often about more than just making the big money. It’s about having the confidence that you made the right decisions. To that end, we’ve found that when you’re in the market for a house, there are a few things that you should consider.
One of those things is time, specifically how much time you think youll spend on the market.
Weve found that most buyers, especially with money, do not think about how much time they will spend on the market. They want it fast and they want it over. So how do you work with that? We think that the best way to approach it is to give your prospective home a good amount of time, give it the support of professionals who have a lot of knowledge, and then let the buyer decide how much time they need.
We have found that buyers who are not willing to take the time to research a property are usually not willing to take the time to prepare for a walk-through or look at other potential homes.
The most important thing most home buyers need is time. If a home is not in the market for a long time, then it’s going to be difficult for the buyers to get to know the property and to fully appreciate the home. I know that sounds counterintuitive. However, we’ve found that a minimum of at least 2 months is most important, then 3 months, then 6 months…. then 4, then 6 months, and finally 10 months….
This is the minimum amount of time a buyer should spend looking at properties. I’ve also read that a home buyer should look at properties at least two months before buying, but that is more of a guideline than a rule.
You are right that it’s best to take a minimum of two months before buying. But I think it is good to give yourself a time frame of a year or two to get to know your new home. It can be tough to get a feel for the space, so you should be prepared to be surprised.
Well, that’s my response to the new marketing consultants seattle article. I’m glad to see that you put some time into it.
