Luxury Properties Look to Entice Buyers With Unique Monikers “Luxury buyers purchase properties that make them feel wealthy or sexy or like they’ve made it,” he continued, adding that in Manhattan, light and views often elicit the greatest emotional pull“But they also want to feel like they’re making a good investment.” Elizabeth Stribling-Kivlan, president of New York brokerage Stribling & Associates, agreed that every luxury buyer wants to make a smart investment, but added that the more money someone has, the easier it might be to justify an emotional spend. Mansion Global is now on LinkedInJoin the discussion. “No one wants to live somewhere with their partner or their children without feeling some sense of home,” she said“Are you really going to walk away over $10,000 or $50,000?” Sometimes, that emotional connection is so strong that the buyer imagines themselves living there regardless of the cost. “If it’s a one-of-a-kind property and there’s that emotional connection, some people will pay anything for it,” said Dottie Herman, the president and CEO of Douglas Elliman. More: It’s in the Numbers: Luck and Superstition Sell Luxury Real Estate But while emotions are almost always part of this decision-making process, they tend to be more important when the real estate market is doing well, said Martin Bikhit, the managing director of London-based Kay & Co “When stock is thin, buyers are more emotional because they panic and think, I’m not going to get what I want,” he said. But because of the principles of supply and demand, when there are more options, people can be choosier and know that even if they lose out on what seems like the perfect property, something else will likely come along that ticks off all the boxes“If we’re looking back three years ago,” MrBikhit said, “everyone was more emotional then than they are now.” While it may seem counterintuitive, many experts said that emotions become even more important when buyers are purchasing second or third homes “A second home is about leisure time,” MsHerman said“It has to have the amenities that the buyer wants, and be an oasis where they can have peace and get away from everything.” More: Click to See Who is the Busiest Celebrity Real Estate Investors of 2016 It can also be a place, MsStribling-Kivlan added, where you forget about function a bit, and fulfill that lifelong dream of owning a house with an incredible waterfall, expansive outdoor entertaining area, or in her case, room for a big pool table“You can let your heart get involved in the transaction a little bit more when it’s a vacation home,” she said An exception, however, is when someone is buying a second or third property purely for its investment potential“You’re not saying, ‘I really like the fireplace and the ambiance,” MsStribling-Kivlan said. That same emotional remove and focus on the numbers also holds true for a few additional parties“If you’re a developer and you’re emotional,” MrHarris said, “that’s probably not a good start.” Same with sellers, MsHerman said“Although they lived there and may have loved it, their main concern is getting the right amount of money.” More: Live Like A Celebrity By Renting One of Their Homes A final area in which emotions come into play—although not to the same extent as they do for primary or secondary homes—is in high-end rentals, said Mark Tunstall, the managing director of London’s high-end rental agency, Tunstall Property. While people tend to rent on a more practical rather than emotional basis, some use a rental period to try out a neighborhood they might not consider right for the long-term, or lease a place that’s more flashy or cool than functional. “At the same time,” MrTunstall said, “it’s important that they connect with the apartment in their heart, because this is where they’re going to be living.” Here’s
