Dollars and Sense

Agents, Shaun's Soapbox, Buyers // Jun 28, 2011

The average buyer has about ten items on their wish list when they look for an apartment:

Price
Location
Bedroom count
Bathroom count
Amenities
Views
Finishes
Layout
Architectural details (or style)
And…..the X factor

Nothing in life is “perfect”, and this remains true for apartments. There is always a trade-off.

While most buyers and brokers focus on number one on the list as the starting point, it is usually number ten that seals the deal. Buying a home is largely an irrational act, and driven by an emotional connection to the property. So, to make the search easier, perhaps you should focus more on how you feel about the home and less about how it conforms to the other list of requirements.
