Optimize Your Home's Best Features to Sell Faster


Let’s face it—the mCENTURY 21 New Millenniumarket is tough right now. If you’re selling your home in Southern Maryland,  there are certain focal points that can give your property the selling edge it needs to draw in buyers, ensuring a faster sale—and a higher selling price. However, there is no need to build a pricey addition or completely gut your existing property. By evaluating your home’s top selling points, you can add modern touches to these features to create a new, fresh feel without doing major renovations.



Point 1: Glam up your bathroom and kitchen. Does your house Sell Your Home have a large kitchen or multiple bathrooms? “Nice bathrooms and kitchens are attractive qualities in a house, and you can make yours look luxurious without going overboard. If you can’t afford double sinks, a whirlpool tub or a walk-in shower in your bathroom, try making subtle adjustments. Small tweaks, like a new mirror or updated lighting, can have a huge effect on the atmosphere of a room. Expand the range of your kitchen by adding a center island with barstools, updating major appliances and giving a second thought to your countertops. Slab countertops, especially granite, are really popular choices.  As far as appliances go, stainless steel is the real deal.

Point 2: Opt for wood. Does your home have large, open rooms? Make them appear even larger with the right flooring. Hardwood Sell Your Homefloors are timeless, and one of the most common features requested by buyers. Consider ripping up old carpet and refinishing the wood beneath. Hardwood too expensive? There are many synthetic alternatives that are nearly as appealing as hardwood, at a fraction of the cost.

Point 3: Organization is key. Do you have a ton of open wall space? Make the most of it with built-ins. Buyers love built-in organizational systems, like entertainment credenzas or Sell Your Homebookshelves. Built-ins are relatively easy to have installed, and can give your home a unique edge. Don’t forget about closets.  Expanding the closets in bedrooms and bathrooms, or adding a walk-in pantry in the kitchen, can add additional sparkle to your home.

Point 4: Don’t forget to landscape. Do you have a large yard? Maximize this space before putting your home up for sale. Especially in the Spring season, the landscaping can have a huge effect on the le
Sell Your Homength of time it stays on the market. Keep the grass neatly mowed and any gardens well tended. Adding a deck or patio is a great idea, but if your budget won’t allow it, simply place some outdoor furniture around the yard in small clusters, so buyers can imagine themselves spending time outside with family and friends.

By singling o
ut and focusing on the top selling points of your property, you can decide what renovations should be made to make the most of what you already have.

All good tips to help sell in a slow market. Looking forward to seeing what the C21 commercial looks like in the Super Bowl. It better be good for $3.5M for a 30 second spot.
