Anyone with a real estate license can sell you a home, he or she will take you through homes, and they may influence how prospective buyers perceive each one depending on how they themselves feel about each one.
Body language and small remarks are sometimes used unbeknown to agents, encouraging or discouraging buyers and sellers decisions.
Example: Some real estate agents open doors for buyers and sometimes remark ” this one is for you,” or “it may be a little dark.” These little gestures can through off an otherwise great showing for the purchaser, and or make a seller feel their home is not as nice as they thought.
We, at The Mazza Team, feel that value, should be made readily available to each purchaser and seller, for example, if a home was to have a steep driveway, power lines, or on a busy road, an agent should inform the prospective buyers and sellers what items equate to diminishing fair market value.
Items like fenced yards, pools, brick exteriors are also valuable in determining real market value, and in today’s market, you don’t want someone’s guess especially with decisions having to be made in minutes rather than hours.
At The Mazza Team, our years of experience have taught us how to handle value judgments so our clients can make accurate, well thought out decisions.
