What influences buyers most when it comes to purchasing a home in Dallas? While men and women have their own ideas and preferences, there are certain key factors that influence the buying decision. Of course, you want your home to reflect your design tastes and personality, but what are other common priorities?
It depends on gender, whether you have children, or even whether you’re a cat or dog lover. There are lots of variables, but here’s a quick overview of the factors that influence buying a home.
Interior features such as layout, number of bedrooms and baths, square footage and whether appliances are included, are more important to women than men. Women are also more concerned about whether the property has a deck or patio in the backyard, and the proximity and quality of schools. As you might expect, men are more concerned about exterior maintenance.
What about parents vs. non-parents? Parents are naturally more concerned about the number of bedrooms, acreage, whether an area is fenced in, interior layout, and square footage, while non-parents aren’t as concerned about these factors.
Is it about the experience, or material things? For those who are all about the living experience, rather than material things, the age of a property, exterior style of a home, and whether it’s centrally located to shopping, dining and other activities is less important.
Naturally, parents with young children are concerned about other factors including educational opportunities and neighborhood safety.
