In most if not all cases, selling a property takes more than just making the house itself look perfect; you can also play up your neighborhood if it’s as great as your property. A potential buyer needs to see that moving to your area will yield a multitude of benefits, so you need to tell them what good things they should expect should they make the decision to purchase a house for sale.
Here are some things related to your community that may help a buyer see your home in an even better light:
When a home is in an area reputed to have high criminal activity, it can be more difficult to sell it that others that are located in much safer places. It’s very important to buyers that they buy a home in a protected community, and this is why “for sale” ads that include “24/7 security” and “gated community” potentially get a lot of views.
Proximity to public transport
Because not all people these days are fortunate enough to have their own cars, buying a house that allows people easy access to public transportation is a big deal. If having a house that’s near their office is not an option, the next best thing would be to live in one where the MRT station or the bus stop is just a few steps away.
Most buyers would rather not have to go through a long drive or commute just to get to a bank or the mall, so it’s important for them to be as close to these amenities as possible. If a buyer has a choice between a house & lot that’s at the far end of a subdivision and one that’s only a few feet from these facilities, doing the math on how long a trip each would take can be their deciding factor.
People who are attempting to put up a “family home” for sale, it would be a benefit to them to mention how many schools there are nearby. To make sure that their children are safe getting to and from school, they would want to live in a home that’s close to it. If the nearby school is a top-notch academic institution at that, buyers would be even more willing to consider it.
Good economic conditions
There are those who also look at the business side of investing in a home, in that they see it as a way to make money should they sell it. This is one reason why these types of buyers gravitate towards booming communities: when a local economy is doing well, it can have a positive effect on their home and can translate to a bigger return when it’s time to sell. The presence of successful businesses and the small number for distressed homes and foreclosures are good indicators of a positive local economy.
