A Non Subjective Element For Choosing A Las Vegas Home For Sale

A Non Subjective Element For Choosing A Las Vegas Home For Sale

    If you are among this July’s consumers who are actively shopping for a home for sale in town, you have probably already taken a look at the Las Vegas listings and most likely jotted down some addresses you’d like to examine in detail. Then, if you find yourself in the happy situation of finding more than one Las Vegas home for sale that passes your first in-person tour visit, the tough question arises about how to pick between two or more quality homes. Should you depend upon your emotional leanings—even if a few practical details seem to point you in the opposite direction? Or should you simply let price be the determining factor? Or is there some other criterion the most experienced house hunters rely on? 

    Of all the factors that could go into that decision, truthfully, pointing out which are the most important is always a subjective exercise (all except for one I’ll bring up last). Here are some of the most useful ones: 

            o Compare the neighborhoods, and take a close look the adjacent streets. Drive by the properties at different times of the day and at least once on a weekend. See how the neighbors keep their homes. Neglected Lawns (or bars on too many windows) are not signed you may want to ignore—just as uniformly well-kept landscaping should count on the positive side. 

            o Next visit to the candidates, do a consciously thorough walk-over. Pace the perimeter of the home and lot. Look for fencing issues you might need to address, or even how intrusive neighbors’ windows might be. Check for signs of water pooling anywhere on the lot with an eye to whether drainage problems could become an issue when the rains come. 

            o If there is another home for sale on the street, drive the immediate Las Vegas looking for more. If there is more than one home for sale, check the web to see if there are too many—or enough that it indicates that values are in flux. If it appears there are many—but no reason other than chance—it could be a good sign that your offer will be very welcome! 

    What is that less subjective factor (the one I said I’d bring up last)? It’s one that calls for becoming more skeptical than you really are: one that has you pretending to be a member of the public at large who doesn’t feel particularly drawn to either of the homes for sale you are comparing. 

    Put yourself into that mindset—then judge which of the homes will be easier to sell in the future where you have decided to move on. Deep-six your idiosyncratic leanings, and concentrate on elements that the majority of people would agree are those that add or subtract resale value. Experienced house hunters have bought and sold often enough that they are keenly aware of how much easier it is to sell a home that has universal appeal—even over one that’s more personally attractive. Keeping aware of the personal factors that may make you comfortable but which could adversely affect saleability will help you determine a property’s future value to others (and, many would argue, that is the real value!)… 

    This summer, we’re fortunate to have a market that offers many Las Vegas homes for sale offering exceptional value. I hope you’ll give me a call to help find your family’s next home!Image title
