Most Requested Amenities For Center City Condo Buyers

Filed under: Center City Real Estate,General Real Estate — Center City Philadelphia Real Estate Agent @ 11:33 am

I have been interviewing buyers for nearly 27 years concerning their wants and needs. When I do an initial interview with condo buyers, I hear a laundry list of things that are important to them. Here are the most common requested items:

  1. Specific Bed/Bath count
  2. Parking
  3. One level living
  4. Move-In condition
  5. Pet-Friendly
  6. Natural light / Views
  7. Walkability to area restaurants and events
  8. Den
  9. Outside space
  10. Pool/Gym


What surprises me the most about a buyer’s initial wish list when compared to what they actually end up buying?  Almost anything on this list can and does fall by the wayside when a buyer sees something they VISUALLY love. Except # 5. If that is on the list, that wish/need does not go away….ever.
