There's a hot new trend in real estate called "try before you buy!"
Richard Bost in New York is trying to sell his home near the Upper East Side. He says that he thinks this new approach is a great way to showcase the neighborhood and the apartment!
And guess what? Realtors seem to agree.
"Basically, without the pressure of a broker, the buyer can come to the home, stay a few hours even stay overnight and just try out the apartment." Limor Nesher, an agent, describes. "It could be listening to the noise of the neighborhood or trying out the pressure of the water or what's behind the walls."
Richard says he's confident that this trend will become very popular as word gets out. Realtors also say that this "try before you buy" can benefit the seller too because if potential buyers enjoy their stay, they are more inclined to make high offers.
