“Do you see what I see?” are words from a traditional Christmas song called “Do you hear what I hear?”
In real estate it is interesting and very common to have buyers and sellers look at the same house but not see the same house.
It was Henry David Thoreau who opined “It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”
Some sellers see all the great things their home offered them through the years. They may not see the things that don’t last forever like the shag carpet or the avocado green appliances that still work.
Some sellers with pets may not notice the pet smell. Or heavy smokers who don’t notice the smell or the yellowing stains on the ceilings.
Buyers and sellers see the same house but what they see is so different - especially when it is time to make an offer.
As a real estate agent I offer buyer prospects many listings to for their review. Then they decide which homes for sale in Brevard County, Florida they want to view.
It is not for me to “review and decide” but rather offer an opportunity to look and see themselves.
