Luxury Homes - Wealth Defined


Visitors: 141

Even when the real estate sector is at its lowest, there are some segments in the market that remain the same. One of these segments is the luxury real estate sector, which is targeted at very wealthy buyers. Quite predictably, agents who work on the very wealthy segment of the population are spared from financial uncertainties.

As it is, while other real estate agents are scrambling to find buyers for foreclosed properties, agents of luxury real estate are targeting and finding wealthy clients to buy luxurious properties.

By Definition: Luxury Real Estate

Different countries have different definitions of what is a luxury home. In general, however, the “luxury" in luxury homes is qualified according to these considerations:

  • The size of the house and its property,

  • If the property faces the ocean, as in the case of waterfront properties,

  • Proximity to luxury amenities like golf courses, and

  • The market value of the property

    Different countries have different lower limits on what is considered a luxurious property. In the United States, the lower limit is pegged at $1 million. Luxury real estate properties are found all over the world. In the United States, you can find a concentration of them in these locations: New York City, Westchester County, The Hamptons, Palm Beach, Litchfield County, Greenwich, Northern California, Southern California, Jackson Hole, Santa Fe, and Sun Valley.

    There is no standard look to luxury real estate properties. Their designs are often inspired from a plethora of influences. Of course, how they actually look depends largely on the creativity of the designer.

    Luxury Real Estate Companies

    Unlike ordinary real estate companies, luxury real estate companies have greater concerns. They often have to advertise and market nationally and even internationally to attract buyers. With mid-priced properties, local advertising is often enough to attract potential buyers.

    Apart from marketing, luxury real estate companies also have broader legal concerns. From dealing with lawyers and trusts to addressing buyer anonymity issues, they have to be adept at handling these to survive in the business. In other words, luxury real estate requires ultra-personalized and exceptional customer service.

    Buying Your Luxury Property

    In buying luxury homes, you need to find and work with a real estate company that specializes in luxury real estate. In choosing a company, make sure it has a global marketing reach. What should your real estate company do for you?

  • Sit down and talk with you about your home requirements as well as your preferences on price, location and style.

  • Search for and show you the luxury homes that best fit your requirement and taste.

  • Help you to critically evaluate the viewed properties and, at your request, prepare a comparison chart on the properties.

  • Handle all the details and negotiations related to buying the property.

  • Prepare a purchase agreement between you and the property owner.

  • Follow through until you are the legal owner of the property.

    That being said, you can now go out and buy.
