If money and time were available in endless supply we would all redo/update every room in our homes before putting it up for sale. Since this isn't realistic see what matters most to today's home buyers.
Want your buyers to fall in love with your home? Then you need to know their hot buttons.
Selling your home in Boca Raton, Delray or anywhere in Palm Beach County is no different from anywhere else. Your house needs to be in move-in ready condition and appeal to a broad range of Buyers.
A recent survey of over 2200 first time home buyers by Trulia asked men and women what features made them fall in love with a house. How can this help you …. The Seller? Well, as you are preparing your home for sale you may want to prioritize your projects. This may be due to time and/or budget constraints.
So what’s important and what can you do with this information?
The #1 area that men and women listed as the feature that would make them fall in love with a house was the Master Bathroom. (70% of both men and women.) Does that surprise you? I didn’t think so. But knowing how important this is to selling your home should motivate you to place this area of your home at the #1 position when updating and preparing your home.
What can you do? Besides giving your Master Bathroom a fresh coat of paint, you can also update your cabinet hardware, paint your cabinets, treat yourself to fluffy new towels, update your lighting and mirrors.
Number 2 on the list was Walk-in Closets. Surprised? Now you know why your Realtor and Stager warn you that Buyers do look in your closet. Storage space is always a key and why shouldn’t the “Master of the House” have this!
What can you do? Edit your closet... pack up, donate, or store items you don’t immediately need. Don’t forget the floor and shelves up above. If things are shoved in and on top of each other it does not give the serene appearance you want in the Master area.
Number 3 Gourmet Kitchen! I don’t know about you but when I’m looking at a house the kitchen is probably the first room I head for. When buyers see a kitchen that is in dire need of some updates the calculator begins to add up what it will take to bring it into this century. What that means for the buyer is either a Pass by the Buyer for a house that has an updated kitchen or a lower offering price.
What can you do? Of course paint is always a great tool for freshening any room. But consider new pulls, updated lighting such as pendant lights, cabinets or at least painting them, and new appliances.
These are the top 3 items but you can learn about the others at Trulia.
If you’re selling your home contact your local professional Home Stager. We can provide a Consultation that gives you a Gameplan for preparing your home for sale.
