Are you planning on selling your Detroit-area home yourself and are wondering how you can find a qualified buyer for your home? If so, you come to the right place! In this article, we will share with you several questions that you can ask for qualifying a buyer for your home.
#1 – When Do You Plan On Moving?
The first question to ask someone two gauge their sincerity about buying a home in Detroit, or anywhere else in the United States, is when they plan on moving, or hope to move.
This question is important because, if the buyer says that they are planning on moving within three to six months, then they obviously do not have any sense of urgency to purchase a home right now.
Once you understand the buyer’s motivation, you will know how much time you should spend with that individual and how to weed out the serious buyer, from the individual who may be “shopping” but isn’t ready to buy now.
#2 – Have They Been Pre-Approved Yet?
Another important question to ask a home buyer is if they have been pre-approved for a mortgage loan yet.
This question is vital because, if the buyer says that they have not been pre-approved for a mortgage, this will also tell you a little bit about their sincerity regarding if they really want to buy a home now or not.
Pre-approval means that they have been approved for a certain amount of money to purchase a home and if they have not been pre-approved yet there’s a good chance that the buyer may not be able to financially qualify for a home loan to purchase your home unless they intend to pay cash for it.
#3 – How Long Have You Been Looking For A Home?
Last of all, but most important, another great question to ask someone which will help you to qualify them as a buyer is how long have they been searching for a home?
If the buyer says that they’ve been searching for a home for up to one year, this is also another great sign that they are generally not serious about buying a home quickly and there’s a good chance they will either waste your time or move on to continuing their search for a house rather than taking the steps to purchase your home.
