Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) November 09, 2012
Leading Knoxville real estate team at Gables & Gates, REALTORS, the Holloway Group, teaches clients how to quickly choose between two Knoxville homes for sale in today's competitive market. In a recent buyer education session the Holloway Group discussed with clients how in today's market, because of dwindling inventory, there is serious competition between buyers. Troy Stavros, Broker and Partner with the Holloway Group says that sometimes a buyer client might find two or more homes they love, that are similar in price, square footage, and features. The question was posed, how do you then make a quick choice between the two. The following are some tips they suggested for getting one to rise to the top.
Stavros says, "If the specifications on the top few homes are similar, it never fails to go back to the age old real estate mantra..location, location, location. First and foremost you should look at which physical location has better proximity to things that are important to you. Speaking of physical location, perhaps one of the Knoxville homes for sale faces a different direction. Think about where you would like the sun to be on your home during different times of the day. Maybe one is on a busier street and the other is in a cul-de-sac." He went on to state that after looking at physical location, one should look at the quality of the neighborhood and it's amenities, crime rates, and the quality of the schools. Stavros added, "This is a big investment, and a place you may be living for a long time, so don't be afraid to go out and talk with some neighbors to get their opinions and a feel for the overall mood. Neighbors love to see and talk with who is potentially moving in, and you can garner quite a bit of information from them".
As a Knoxville real estate team that is typically selling these same homes once the buyer needs to move up, down size, or relocate, the Holloway Group always keeps resale value on the forefront of the mind's of clients. Stavros says, "Although they are just moving in and excited about a new home, we remind our clients that this is typically their largest investment, so we want to make sure it is a good investment when it comes time to sell. We've had more than one client choose one house over another because of our advice as to which would be more valuable when it comes time to sell." And resale value may not only be decided by which home is in a better neighborhood, it could be decided on which home the buyer can get the better deal.
