5 Myths About Real Estate Reality TV Explained

stm-share7

Have you ever been flipping through the channels, only to find yourself glued to the couch in an HGTV binge session? We’ve all been there… watching entire seasons of “Love it or List it,” “Fixer Upper,” “House Hunters,” “Property Brothers,” and so many more, just in one sitting.

你有沒有過無聊時隨便按選電視頻道,然後就躺在沙發上一整天看HGTV的買賣裝修佈置房屋的的電視節目?我們都曾經這樣做過…. 一整天看完整季的“Love it or List it”,“Fixer Upper”,“House Hunters”,“Property Brothers”等等節目。

When you’re in the middle of your real estate themed show marathon, you might start to think that everything you see on TV must be how it works in real life, but you may need a reality check.

當你在觀賞房地產主題電視節目馬拉松時,可能會認為在電視上看到的一切跟在現實生活中是一樣的,但事實並非如此。

Reality TV Show Myths vs. Real Life:
實境電視節目虛構 vs. 現實生活:

Myth #1: Buyers look at 3 homes and make a decision to purchase one of them.
虛構#1:買家看了3棟房子後馬上決定購買其中之一。

Truth: There may be buyers who fall in love and buy the first home they see, but according to the National Association of Realtors the average homebuyer tours 10 homes as a part of their search. 

真相:可能真的有買家看了第一棟房子就馬上愛上並買下,但根據全國房地產經紀人協會調查,購屋者平均會看10棟房屋。

Myth #2: The houses the buyers are touring are still for sale.
虛構#2:買家看的房屋仍在出售中。

Truth: The reality is being staged for TV. Many of the homes being shown are already sold and are off the market. 

真相:這是專為電視節目設計的橋段,許多買家參觀的房屋早已售出,或是根本未在出售中。

Myth #3: The buyers haven’t made a purchase decision yet.

虛構#3:買家還沒決定是否購屋。

Truth: Since there is no way to show the entire buying process in a 30-minute show, TV producers often choose buyers who are further along in the process and have already chosen a home to buy. 

真相:由於沒有辦法在30分鐘的節目中演出整個購屋過程,製作單位通常選擇那些已經選定房屋並已處在買賣過程結尾的買家來錄製節目。

Myth #4: If you list your home for sale, it will ALWAYS sell at the Open House.

虛構#4:當你的房子上市出售時,永遠都是在open house的時候賣出。

Truth: Of course this would be great! Open houses are important to guarantee the most exposure to buyers in your area, but are only a PIECE of the overall marketing of your home. Just realize that many homes are sold during regular listing appointments as well.

真相:如果可以這樣當然是很棒的!Open house是非常重要的,可以確保讓許多買家看到並參觀你的房屋,但是這只是眾多行銷方式的其中之一,許多房屋一樣在一般預約參觀時賣出。

Myth #5: Homeowners make a decision about selling their home after a 5-minute conversation.

虛構#5:與屋主談話5分鐘後馬上決定出售房屋。

Truth: Similar to the buyers portrayed on the shows, many of the sellers have already spent hours deliberating the decision to list their homes and move on with their lives/goals.

真相:跟節目上的買家類似,許多賣家早已花了許多時間決定出售房屋,以達成他們的生活/目標。
