    Why Is Qualifying Luxury Buyers Important?

    Not all buyers who look at luxury homes can afford them. There are a few simple things you can do to prevent wasting your time with unqualified buyers. Schedule an Appointment With Us Today! There are a lot of people out there that love looking at luxury homes. However, if you’re an agent listing a luxury home, how do you tell the serious buyers from the ones who just like to look? A lot of luxury home sellers will require their buyer to have a pre-approval prior to looking at the home. This ensures you don’t waste time dealing with unqualified buyers. “ Why Is Qualifying Luxury Buyers Important? ” Another way to make sure your buyer has enough funds is by simply asking them how they plan on paying for the home. The answer will either be cash or financing. If it’s financing, you want to be sure they have a pre-approval from a lender. If they don’t, then recommend a lender to them. If they are a cash buyer, you’ll need proof of funds as well. Qualifying buyers is simply smart business when selling luxury homes. If you have any questions for us, don’t hesitate to give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you.

    How to Work With Luxury Buyers

    As a group, luxury buyers prefer amenities over space. They also demand the very best service from their agents. Schedule an Appointment With Us Today! When working with a luxury buyer, it’s important to understand their wants and needs. Of all luxury buyers, 57% own more than one home. This gives them a lifestyle advantage, and Palm Beach County is one of their favorite places to own a second or third home. The size of the home is not as important to this group as the amenities are. They will overlook up to a 1000 square feet of room just to get the amenities that they enjoy. Lots of luxury buyers, when asked, prefer to have a smart home over a green home. It’s not hard to see why—this gives them the advantage of monitoring their properties from many different locations. “ Luxury buyers demand the very best. ” As an agent, keep in mind that luxury buyers demand the very best. They want to know about the lifestyles of the neighborhood, the first homes that come onto the market that meet their criteria, and overall housing trends.
