Supporting Local Business Helps to Make Your Home More Desirable when Selling

A desirable community can help make your home more desirable to buyers

You are probably thinking that I am crazy or you just don't see the connection in supporting small local business and how it can help your home to sell. Someone thinking about buying a home in your area may be inclined to do a Google search of the area to see what your area offers.  They will search specific criteria based on their own lifestyle.

Let's say the person searching your area is the parent of a dog or cat.  They might search for "pet stores in new port richey florida" how great does the area look to a buyer if they find small businesses that cater to dogs and cats.  The buyer may do the same search for activities like pottery, farmers markets, bakeries, coffee shops, florists or any specialty shop.

Supporting local business is very important to the economy as well as making neighborhoods more appealing. When driving relocation buyers around looking at homes they all ask the same questions, "wheres the grocery store", "is there a farmers market in pasco county", "is there a pet store" etc... What a great opportunity for me to say, "Yes, there is a great pet store where the staff is friendly and knowledgeable and it's much better than the larger chains.  Maybe they ask about Starbucks...how great to be able to say we have 3 of those but there is this amazing coffee shop where the food is great the coffee is amazing and they have free WiFi and live entertainment on the weekends.  It's a local favorite

Support those local businesses.  Keep your local favorites in business and share how great you think these shoppes are.
