If you know that the home you are buying my have to be sold within a few years, you have a few extra items you need to pay attention to prior to purchasing. This is particularly true if you’ll need to sell within a short time period due to a job transfer or similar pressing requirement.

Homes with a pleasant view out the windows will sell more quickly and at a premium to homes with a less pleasant view. While you should buy a home that you plan to live in with your own pleasure in mind, when reselling, what the buyer sees out the window has an impact on the sale.

How do you avoid these potential pitfalls?

When you look at a home to buy, check the view from EVERY window. Take the time to visit the property at different times of the day, especially if there are retail establishments nearby so that you can gauge the traffic and noises that that may come from them.

When you’ve purchased a home and did not buy with the view in mind, or if the view has changed, there are some things you can do.

As always, let your real estate professional know if you’ll potentially be needing to resell the home within a few years as we can best advise you for the local market.
