This question may help you evaluate the “real value” of the property. Is there something about the house the seller does not like? If so, you may be able to adjust the purchase offer accordingly.
This question can, in some instances, help the buyer negotiate a better deal-maybe even get the seller to carry part of the loan. However, it is important to remember that the purchase price is influenced by several factors, like the current market value and any improvements the seller may have made to the home. The original purchase price might not have anything to do with the current value of the house.
By asking the seller what he or she likes most and least about the property, you might get some interesting information. In a few cases, what a seller likes the most about a home might actually be something the buyer is looking to avoid. For example, if the seller describes his house as being in a “happening community,” the buyer might consider this a negative factor because the area may be too noisy or busy for his or her taste.
It is also a good idea to ask the seller if he or she has had any problems with the home while living there. Has the seller had problems with a leakage from the upstairs bedroom in the past? If so, even if the leak has been corrected, the floor and walls around the bathroom might have been damaged. You should also check that these items were repaired properly.
Use this answer to find out about any noisy neighbors, barking dogs, heavy airplane traffic or even planned changes to the community, such as a planned street widening. This may give you insight on why the seller is really moving.
Because the value of a community is usually greatly influenced by the public schools in the area, finding out the buyer’s perception can give you some insight about the quality of the area’s schools.
Knowing all you can about a prospective home, not only helps you decide if it’s the home of your dreams, but what offer to make as well. Your real estate professional can help you get your key questions answered and give you advice on how to evaluate your findings.
I am a Tulsa, Oklahoma native, but I’ve lived in Dallas for well over 20 years.
I have been in the business since 2013 and am a former Verizon Senior Business Sales Executive, educated in Computer Information Systems.

Stacey was born and raised near South Padre Island, Texas. She has been married to Bobby Booth for 30 years and has two daughters, Allyson and Amanda. Allyson recently married Konner Miller in February and Amanda will be headed to the University of Arkansas, Fall 2022.
She was an Office Manager for Woolam Gin for 10 years and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology. She taught 2nd grade for 7 years before moving to Mena, Arkansas to open Black Bear Cabin Rentals in 2012. The best part of building a business from the ground up like Black Bear Cabins, was seeing it go from a concept to a thriving business. Her favorite part of the job was making connections with all of her customers.
The reason Stacey got into real estate is because she has always loved helping people and what better way to help people than to find the perfect place to call home. After selling Black Bear Cabins in 2020, she considered doing it then, but still had one of her daughters at home. Since her youngest daughter will be starting college in the fall, she knew this was the perfect time to start her new career. She has always loved the one-on-one personal contacts she has made with people, whether it was with her customers, students, or parents.
Her goal is to work hard for her clients whether it is through the purchase a new home or the sale of a current home. Her number one priority is to provide an experience where the customer feels valued and well taken care of.
