Columbus Home Buyers Should Choose Carefully

Choosing a Columbus homeColumbus home buyers have been contending with bidding wars, low home inventory and rising prices. As some buyers make offers sight-unseen, it’s possible that buyer’s remorse could follow in the future. This is especially true if buyers haven’t done their homework on the neighborhood – or the house.

For example, a homeowner survey by Sears in 2020 revealed the most common causes of disgruntled homeownership:

  1. Home too small for the needs of the occupants
  2. Home located in a noisy/busy area
  3. Condition issues affecting quality of life, such as pest infestations
  4. Odd layout or floor plan
  5. Lack of privacy

On the other hand, homeowners who were very happy with their homes cited a feeling of safety and security as their prime reason for contentment. Happy homeowners also reported enjoying the home’s location. Ample interior space and backyard space were additional reasons for home satisfaction.

It is possible that the pandemic influenced the survey responses. However, it should be noted that the reasons for home happiness were largely universal across all ages of home owners. So were the reasons for home discontentment!
