When it comes to buying and selling homes every client has their own “unique” motivator(s) for buying or selling their home. Identifying these motivators can help their real estate agent find homes that fit their wants and needs. Let’s take a look at some of the common motivators.
Upsizing and Downsizing
Many clients are either looking to upsize or downsize their home. This can be for many reasons. One is children, when homeowners start beginning their families, they need more space, because with more people comes from stuff. They want their children to have their own rooms, a yard to play in, and a family friendly neighborhood.
On the flip-side, it’s about downsizing. One, the kids are all grown up and out of the house, and this leads to many clients looking for something smaller. Maintenance and upkeep with a large home can be difficult, while moving into a smaller home makes their life easier. Also, life happens and health problems occur,where moving into a single level home can benefit those with physical limitations.
This can happen in many lights, whether they finally received that new job promotion or they are changing careers. These factors sometimes cause clients to have to relocate themselves and their families.With these new changes, clients are looking for homes that provide them with shorter commutes to and from work. It allows them to take the time they normally spend on the road and put it into their families instead.
Keeping Family Close
It is very common for clients to sell or buy homes in order to be located closer to their families. For many clients, family is at the top of their priority list; whether that be grandma and grandpa or aunts and uncles. Living further away from family can take a toll on someone’s emotional well-being, and can be enough of a motivator for a client to want to relocate.
