Buyer and Seller Logic Isn’t Always Logical

  You’ve probably heard the saying that “common sense isn’t all that common”.  When it comes to Charlotte NC real estate buyers and sellers, logic isn’t always all that logical. 

  Buyers tend to exaggerate perceived flaws while sellers view those same things as perfectly acceptable.

  To a buyer: the carpet’s filthy, worn out and all needs to be replaced

  To a seller: the carpet’s “broken in”, it’s still got a few years of life left in it (pet stains? what pet stains?)

  To a buyer: the appliances, counters and flooring went out of style years ago, the kitchen and baths need a total remodel. 

  To a seller: they work just fine, why replace it if it’s not “broken”, besides that wallpaper was there when we bought the place and it doesn’t bother us!

  To a buyer: the traffic sounds from a nearby street would keep them up at night

  To a seller: what noise? Oh, that? It’s just “white noise”, we don’t notice it anymore, it’s no big deal

   Charlotte NC sellers – your house is NOT the only home buyers have to consider and evaluate.  What do buyers really see when they’re looking at your house???  Chances are it isn’t exactly what you see when you look around!

   Here’s a “slightly” exaggerated but not all that far fetched perspective on what buyers, sellers, appraisers, lenders and tax assessors see when they look at the same house….
