Neighborhood report satisfies concerns of buyers … and their parents

Ressie Wallace Wilson
Washington, D.C.

Like many REALTORS®, Ressie Wallace Wilson works with young buyers who seek input from family members when looking for a home. Specializing in the Washington, D.C. market, Ressie has seen the ups-and-downs of the economy and how those fluctuations affect the life of a neighborhood. Finding the right home for these young buyers is a task she takes seriously. “Our job as REALTORS® is to help clients make a good, sound decision that will still be a good, sound decision 10, 15, 30 years from now,” she said.

The Challenge

Recently Ressie was working with buyers whose parents and grandparents were actively involved in the decision making purchase. Like most parents and grandparents, the family members wanted to ensure their children/grandchildren were buying in a neighborhood that would prove to be a good investment for years to come. Their biggest concern was that their children/grandchildren would buy into an area saturated with foreclosures.

“There’s a lot of information available to buyers,” said Ressie. We need to make sure they’re getting accurate information about truly what’s happening in the neighborhood they’re interested in.”

The Outcome

Ressie knew she had her work cut out for her. She needed to find her buyers the home of their dreams and she needed to make the entire family comfortable with their buying decision. And she knew RPR’s Market Activity Report would be able to do just that.

Thanks to the numerous layers available in a Market Activity Summary, Ressie was able to pinpoint the data her clients needed and give them a ‘big picture’ on market trends. She gave them information on current sales, past sales and foreclosures all in one report.

“We used RPR’s Market Activity Report to show the clients’ parents and grandparents that they were buying in a neighborhood that was trending in the right direction,” said Ressie. With everyone now feeling comfortable, they were able to move forward with the purchase.

“RPR Reports give Buyers ‘the big picture’ on market trending in a neighborhood they are interested in.”
