“Incentivizing” the Buyer for Brooklyn Homes for Sale”

The Federal Government envisions a secure and stable marketplace for national and Brooklyn homes for sale, thus their involvement. We may or may not like the politics, but the fact remains that the marketplace has stabilized somewhat, and prices are leveling in anticipation of an upward turn.

No matter the actual state of the market, the simple fact is that motivated buyers and sellers for Brooklyn homes for sale do still exist. If not, a lot less people would visit this site.

If you market your home correctly, the opportunity to sell is still promising. After all, interest rates are favorable, prices are realistic and the government has thrown some interesting incentives to buyers, sellers and lenders alike.

You and your real estate agent have the ability to induce buyers to act.  If your agent is experienced, he or she will work with you to develop incentives and add appeal to the transaction.

Step 1:  Provide Factual Information

Facts outweigh rumor, and having provable information helps get rid of the buyer’s reservations.  Here are some of the main facts you and your agent need to have at your fingertips in order to induce buyers to act:

  • Knowledge of all local, state and federal tax incentives available to residents of your area
  • Knowledge of all projected closing costs
  • An understanding of the buyer’s financial and domestic qualifications
  • Complete knowledge of the school system and all community services and costs
  • Expertise concerning the history and composition of the home
  • Knowledge of any planned growth in the area

Step 2:  Provide Incentives

The “incentivizing” (no, that’s not a real word) of your home involves several factors. Some incentives may be more creative than others.  Here are a few ideas:

  • Offer a one-year home warranty program through a third party provider. This is a popular way to relieve buyers of some of their reservations. The idea is based on getting rid of unexpected expenses and the possibility of hidden costs.
  • Have the seller pay part of the closing costs.
  • Combine the above two incentives with a flexible closing date to make Brooklyn homes for sale that much more attractive.
