The next time you are flipping a house, think about how real estate patterns play into your profits. There are many cases where flipping an established house is going to require you to go with more than one pattern.
As I always say, every situation is different and therefore, there is no single pattern that fits all. Every buyer will have a unique lifestyle preferences. So if you are trying to turn an average house into a sellable property, you are going to have to use more than one real estate pattern.
One of the first things you need to keep in mind is the neighborhood changes. The neighborhood is one of the most influential factors when looking for a new home. If you buy a house that has low expectations in regards to potential sales, expect it to be harder to sell in a high-demand neighborhood. You will have to make sure that your neighborhood is unique.
If you buy a new house in a neighborhood that is already being sold, your chances of selling it increase exponentially. Nowadays, buyers are wary about moving to new neighborhoods since they know there is a high likelihood of being priced out by the sellers.
Another thing to keep in mind is what real estate trends are going on in your area. A large number of new subdivisions and developments are being built in major cities such as San Diego, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Miami, and Houston. This puts these areas in high demand.
Keep in mind that there are many people who buy homes in these areas because of the real estate trends. They are not only looking for the nicest house but they also want to live near work, entertainment venues, and other amenities.
The same applies to buyers looking for a new home. Most of them are living in these new communities for other reasons. Many of them don’t want to leave their current town and schools, but they do want to move to a neighborhood that is closer to entertainment and employment options.
Having already established this, the next real estate patterns that should come into play are those that influence buyers’ choices in the neighborhood. If you flip a house in a quiet area, you will have a hard time to convince buyers to purchase it over another neighborhood.
However, if you flip a house in a growing area, and you advertise on the front lawn and common areas of the property, you can bring buyers from outside of the area. They will be lured to the house by the beauty of the neighborhood.
Do you see the connection between real estate trends and the buying power of your real estate agents? Every buyer has his own preferences. That is why your real estate agent should be careful when offering you a specific neighborhood.
My best advice is to know what real estate trends are in your specific area. When you know what kind of neighborhood your target clients want, you are better equipped to cater to their needs. You should also be ready to adapt to whatever patterns your buyers want.
Keep in mind that knowing real estate trends is one of the most important things to keep in mind before making any purchase. If you are able to get a hold of your buyer’s preferences, you will be able to create a better outcome for you. Make sure that you plan your purchase accordingly.
