Environmental Psychology and Buying a Home
Many people often wonder what an environmental psychologist does and why one would want to study the field. There is no easy answer to this question.
One way that a practicing environmental psychologist helps is in collaboration with prospective homebuyers and realtors to identify the best location and type of home to meet their needs. For example, some people are sensitive to noise and therefore close proximity to a freeway or industrial center could lead to physical, social, or psychological issues. A person with non-standard work hours would also call for a quiet home. For these people an important consideration would be the placement of the bedroom.
To assist a client in identifying the best purchase, an environmental psychologist employs many observation skills. For example, prospective buyers' words often indicate their psychological affiliation to a property. Terms such as property, house, condominium, and apartment suggest a detached pragmatic approach to the purchase. Once they cross a psychological line in the conceptualization of the property and begin to use words such as home, abode, cave, or cocoon, they have developed an emotional bond.
Other observation techniques involve a tour of the client's existing home and sometimes also place of work. In most situations the home gives an idea of how they live, what is important to them, and any future issues they will want to address. The workplace environment is also a good indicator of what a client's state of mind will be once they get home. For example, someone working in a very noisy environment will not want to be living with constant traffic noise.
While every purchaser has unique circumstances, the following is an example of how I was able to help buyers better understand their needs and purchase a home that best addressed those needs.
