Questions to Ask the Seller About the Neighborhood

So, you’ve listed a home in a great neighborhood.

Have you ever thought about putting together a questionnaire for your sellers entitled:

“What’s So Great About Your Neighborhood?” 

When buyers view a home, they often ask about the neighborhood. This is a great tool that you can provide to the buyer’s agent when they request a showing.

Here are some of the questions to ask your seller. Ask them to complete.

They may not be able to answer all of them, but they can leave some blank.

  1. What would you say about your neighbors?
  2. What community events occur throughout the year?
  3. What local shopping is available nearby?
  4. What are the schools in your neighborhood area?
  5. What are some of the best restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner?
  6. Is there access to public transportation?
  7. Is there a local park, playground or dog park?
  8. Is there a community pool or fitness facility?
  9. What is the crime rate in your neighborhood?
  10. Where are the medical clinics and hospitals located?
  11. What’s available nearby for entertainment (movie theaters, nightlife, children activities)?
  12. What other towns are nearby?

Remember that buyers are not just buying a home. They are buying into a lifestyle and a neighborhood.

It’s one of the keys to getting your listings sold.

So, what else would you add to this list?
