I wrote another blog yesterday on Home Inspections to have it ready to post this morning (I will post it tomorrow), but as I was watching the show Selling New York (I love this show) on HGTV last night an agent was having a hard time selling a condo/apartment (we call them condo's here in Dallas) and the inside of the house was updated and looked awesome.
The problem that buyer's were having with the unit was the upstairs rooftop was raw and unfinished and the comments from the buyers were that they would like to see the seller's either lower the price or finish out the rooftop with flooring and just make it more aesthetically pleasing.
When the agent went to talk to the seller's about brainstorming on what else they could do to get the condo sold, the agent mentioned finishing out the rooftop or lowering the price. Of course the seller's were questioning why buyer's couldn't see past the raw roof deck, especially when rooftop decks are becoming rare in New York. The agent mentioned to the seller's that today's buyer's are "Instant Gratification Buyers" where they want to move into a home and do no work whatsoever.
The episode ended with the seller's lowering the price since they were not on board sinking more money into the condo if they weren't going to see a nice return on it. If I remember correctly that shortly after lowering their price the seller's received an offer and it has since been sold.
Potential seller's in Allen Tx and surrounding cities can take note that when putting their home up for sale the buyer's will look for the tiniest items and use that as an excuse not to make an offer on your home.
The best thing you can do as a seller is to consult with your local Realtor (preferably The Good Home Team) as well as a home stager who can give you advice on how to get your home ready to sell and to be presentable to home buyers.
