Working with your preferencesSeptember 26, 2008
Every purchase of a luxury home involves a certain amount of compromise. When you are working with a Realtor, it is important that you give your agent a clear idea which of your criteria is flexible and which amenities you really must have in your new home.
If you prefer a specific location, for example, tell your agent why you desire to live in that neighborhood. Your agent will be able to suggest alternative areas that offer the same amenities or conveniences. Let your agent know the importance off lot size and square footage. Do you really need five bedrooms, or would four bedrooms work if there were a den for your home office?
How much are you willing to invest in redecorating or remodeling? We ask buyers a range of questions so that we
can use their time most efficiently, showing them only houses that are real possibilities based on their preferences.
