Working With Home Buyers With Wide Price Ranges

When you start out looking for a home to buy, you might be focused on a wide price range instead of narrowing your selections, and that's perfectly OK. You might say you initially would like to buy a home under a million, but closer to half a million is preferable. Well, that's a HUGE price range (and variance in amenities), and you don't have time, I can assure you, to look at every home under a million in Sacramento. Which means you need to narrow your focus.

Just this morning I talked with a buyer in Sacramento who wants to be near the airport, but he is focusing on Elk Grove, which is not near the airport. He also can't afford much over $350K, so that narrows his focus to an incredibly small number of homes.

You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Are You a Buyer Who Wants to See Homes Outside Your Price Range?

Elk Grove Home Will Shine With a Little TLC

We priced this home to sell for the condition it is in and for the amount of work a buyer will need to do. Many agents said they felt it showed better than they thought it would, especially since it needs new flooring throughout and paint. When you… more
