Ask a homebuyer what features were important to him or her 20 years ago and chances are, the answers would be quite different than they would be if you asked that same question today.
With homebuyers currently staying in their home an average of 14 years (the Zillow Group Report), location, schools, larger kitchens, Smart Home technology, ability to personalize, outdoor living space, and a dedicated space for a home office top the list of must-haves in a new home (https://www.realestateagent.com/blog/what-are-home-buyers-looking-for-in-2020/).
Today’s Homebuyers Need to Be Prepared in Order to Have a Fighting Chance
Market inventory remains low, causing a surge in buyers offering over asking price in some cases, writing personal letters, paying cash, and negotiating quick closes with clean buying terms.
Buyers who want a chance at their dream home need to come in pre-approved and with a Realtor® who is skilled at negotiating terms that a seller cannot pass up.
Furthermore, it’s not always the highest offer that gets accepted; we have known sellers who were happy to choose our clients because of the way we positioned them on paper and in person.
Showing proof of employment, funds, pre-approval, and a genuine desire to own the seller’s home versus owning any home makes the difference to some sellers.
