I think we will all agree that the current first-time ‘internet savvy’ first time home buyer expects perfection. After all, they have read that it is ‘their market’ there are a multitude of properties available to them on the market, and so they can demand what they want……. So, fast forward to the seller…. and you ask them quite politely… “Is there anything the buyer will find in an inspection….” “No, my house has no issues!” “Okay, that is GREAT!’
An inspection later, and the buyer finds damage here, and damage there…no big deal but to that first -time home buyer, any issue, no matter small, is a big issue… so we return to our sellers…and the home seller says “Oh, yes… that… we knew about that…..” and then you waste a whole week trying to keep the transaction together while you bring in different contractors, etc., etc … What are we not getting here? We can lose the buyers in the process.
This market is extremely tough…. to be able to bring forth a buyer who is financially able…. forget willing to buy a home, and wishing to purchase the home.. is great…. but we also need some help and assistance from the sellers…. When we ask you if there is anything you should let us know about your home so we can deal with it/address it /correct it now…. we sincerely, really do mean just that! We are on your side… all issues become non-issues when dealt with in a timely manner…
Larchmont and New Rochelle are great!
