I don’t own a car, but I have three bicycles. As you can guess, I bike everywhere I need to go. I’ve been saving my pennies, and I’m in a position to finally consider some San Diego real estate for sale. But the incredible news is that I found a real estate office that is dedicated to cyclists. The idea is to use a cruising bicycle supplied by the realtor to pedal to the property using bike directions available on Google Maps. It’s a great concept for a number of reasons.
First, as a home purchaser, you might like to check out your potential neighborhood to see if it’s safe, practical and fits your biking lifestyle. When you tour a community by bicycle, you get an up-close and personal view of each street. The feeling you get for a neighborhood by cycle-touring is much more intimate than zooming in by car. You can really imagine what it would be like to live there should you buy the property up for sale.
Sellers benefit from this unique way of showcasing their homes. The uniqueness of the selling technique generates a lot of interest and makes your property stand out. As the foot traffic to your property increases, so do the chances that your home will sell. I know that some people out there are not cyclists (though it pains me to admit it). The real estate agent will sell your property via conventional techniques if you insist. But if you’re reading this article, you already are a biking fanatic, so I know you will find this technique attractive.
Some people are quite willing to tour a neighborhood by bike but are perhaps concerned that they are not fit enough for the task. Relax, most bike tours are not that rigorous, and the pace is peaceful and leisurely. The cruising bikes supplied by the realtor are designed for people at all levels of fitness. For instance, the bikes are equipped with gearing that would allow your grandmother to climb a hill. All the controls are intuitive, the seat is very comfortable and the bike is easy to ride. I would say give it a try before you knock it.
The realtor also supplies a helmet — please make sure you wear it! Better to be safe than sorry. And take pride in the fact that your home search is not adding pollutants to the atmosphere.
