Buyer Checklist to Evaluate Wants vs Needs
We can’t always get what we want. Sometimes, we have to compromise.
Pull out your buyer checklist. Do you NEED a house with 4 bedrooms and just WANT a garage?
If you tell your agent that you must have 4 bedrooms with and garage, when you don’t really mean it, you may miss out on
that beautiful 4 bedroom home that’s on the market with all the bells and whistles that you’ve always dreamed off, but just doesn’t happen to have a garage.
Maybe it is a great deal, and there’s room to add on a garage!
But, you’ll never know because you told your agent that you MUST have both. Be clear in differentiating your true wants vs needs with your agent.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve sold my buyers homes that they weren’t even considering looking at,
but because I truly listened to what they actually “needed” that home ended up being the right home for them.
