When a realtor is eager for more young clients, he or she will be willing to show any property that fits the buyer’s interests. However, a realtor should be stricter in the location aspect when showing listings for young buyers. When a young buyer or new couple are planning on starting a life together, buying a home or apartment is the right step. If the buyer(s) are moving to a new city, then is it crucial to consider that logistics of the buyer’s work location and listings locations.
The Commute Conundrum
When a hip and cool buyer contacts a realtor about him or her moving to a new location and is asking for listings that pique the client’s needs, a realtor should also ask the location of the client’s workspace. Now, this might seem a little too much information; nevertheless, it is important in the decision process. When a realtor knows the location of the client’s workspace, a simple realtor might immediately think to find listings as close as possible while maintaining the client’s house specifications.
This might lead to some problems in the long run. For example, when a realtor shows listings that are as close as possible to the client’s workspace, there might a higher listing price compared to a listing somewhere more suburban. Financial complications can potentially arise for a buyer(s) who have purchased a listing close to work with the realtor’s assistance.
A realtor should consider the variables of more listings that are further away from the client’s workspace in order to save money for the clients in the long run. If a realtor shows a client listing that are over 30 minutes away, to a more quitter location, then the client will have less expenses on the overall price of the listings, maintenance, and other costs.
Compared to a realtor closing a deal with a client(s) who house is very close to the client’s workspace, the client will have still dealt with a higher initial cost and many higher fees in the future. The example is critical for when a client has his or her job in a large city, like Atlanta, and is questioning whether it is worth it to live close or commuting far. At Panda IDX, we blieve it is always best to commute.
