Buyer Feedback – 2 solutions to unrealistic buyer expectations – advice to seller

Comments like this “The clients didn’t like the room sizes” indicate that we are attracting buyers that are expecting larger rooms or whatever the comment is. Now isolated comments are one thing and don’t mean much but when you are consistently getting similar comments about things that cannot be changed like room sizes this is the case. Why are we attracting buyers with expectations that exceed the real property? Primarily price, usually buyers stick to a price range and as they are shopping around get a feel for what is out there at that given price range. For example no one expects a huge bonus room in a starter home price range but they do come to expect certain things based on what other similarly priced homes are offering. Now I realize that a price reduction is not always in the books so there is something else you can do and that is raise increace value either real or perceived.By real value I mean upgrades such as replacing that dated tile in the foyer or the sea foam green carpet in the livingroom. By perceived value I mean things like staging, decluttering, cleaning, minor repairs and painting. The bottom line is if you are getting negative feedback consistently you may want to review your expectations and come up with an action plan that will bring a solid offer to the table from a qualified and motivated buyer.
