Urban vs. Suburban vs. Rural: How to Sell Homes in Your Area, Chicago, Illinois

Selling a home is all about location. Each buyer is looking for a piece of real estate to fit their lifestyle and preferences. When you are selling your urban, suburban, or rural home, your approach will differ with each location. This guide will give you some basic tips for effectively selling in different geographical areas. 

Your Guide to Selling Properties in Different Areas


Individuals and families often move to the city for jobs, culture, and efficiency. They may also be lifelong city dwellers. When appealing to an urban buyer, you should emphasize the home’s proximity to public transportation, shopping centers, parks, museums, and restaurants. Space can also be precious in cities, so emphasize your square footage and stage to create more space. In your real estate listing, emphasize the characteristics of the neighborhood to appeal to your target buyer. 


real estateThe average suburban buyers are often families, so you should keep this in mind when selling your home. Your yard and neighborhood can be excellent selling points for families with children. Emphasize local schools and the suburb’s proximity to the nearest city where people might work. Buyers will focus on the number of bedrooms in your home, the floor plan, and any recent renovations. 


When a buyer purchases a piece of rural real estate, they likely value space, nature, and privacy. Highlight the amount of land that comes with the property. List whether there are any barns, sheds, septic systems, or wells on the land as well. If there is space for farming on your property, you might consider disclosing the type of soil and results of soil testing. Buyers will also want to know the average commute to the city or town.
