5 Common Frustrations for Home Buyers

1- Accessibility issues

You have seen the listing of your dreams online, but you can’t seem to get a showing to see how it looks in person.  Sellers who treat their homes like fortresses and make it difficult to get in for showings and later on, for home inspections and walk-throughs are a major hassle for home buyers looking to make a deal.  We know people are busy, but assuming they want to sell their home it is reasonable to expect them to let you in to see it.

2- Spending Money on the house

Spending before you finalize the purchase is a common mistake.  Buyers are often so excited about their new home, and they want to furnish every square inch. But it is not smart to overspend on furnishings before you move in.  If you make any major purchases on credit, it can impact your credit score and debt-to-income ratio, causing you to no longer qualify for a loan.

3- The seller leaves stuff behind

Buyers can become annoyed when they move in and find the home hasn’t been totally cleared of the seller’s belongings.  Sellers are to leave the home clean and free of debris. But that doesn’t mean buyers don’t occasionally find half-used bags of fertilizer or junk lying around.

4- Sellers who take too much.

Certain fixtures stay with the home when it’s sold, but that doesn’t stop some sellers from occasionally trying to take even more with them.  We have seen sellers who take lighting, fans and even light bulbs.

5- Not knowing how everything works

After moving in, buyers may realize the sprinkler system and the appliances aren’t so easy to operate.   I try to set up a time when buyers and sellers can meet prior to closing or at least have them leave detailed instructions.
