Make Your Home in Baldwinsville Move-in Ready

By
Home Stager with Seneca Home Staging

A Buyer's Definition of Move-in Ready

What is it that buyers want most in a new home? A home that is move-in ready usually comes in near the top of the list of Example of Move-in Ready Living Roomcriteria. There are many surveys, including one  by Coldwell Banker, that have found buyers want move-in ready homes. Although many homes for sale in Baldwinsville claim to be move-in ready, buyers often disagree. They see all the perceived work they think needs to be done to a home, and the amount they are willing to offer drops lower and lower. Even when the issue is something easy to fix such as paint color, a squeaky door-hinge, or even dated decor, buyers would rather keep looking until they find a home they feel they can move into and not have to lift a finger.

Give Them What They Want

Knowing that buyers want move-in ready, it is imperative that sellers recognize and respond by giving them what they want. That doesn't mean you have to remodel, re-carpet, or even re-paint as some would suggest. Creating the look that makes buyers feel home is the key to making your home look move-in ready. Having it staged will address many of these issues, and you may find that expensive projects like replacing kitchen countertops or cabinets are unneccesary. A professional home stager has the ability to increase the appeal and desireability of the home and make recommendations that will satisfy buyers' criteria.

Virtually Tour Some Homes for Sale in Baldwinsville

Take a look online at other homes for sale in Baldwinsville. Compare the home you are selling with others for sale in your area. Will potential buyers see yours as a move-in ready home, or will they want to make a lot of changes? The idea is to give buyers what they want by showing them a home that looks like it has been well cared for and updated--a home that is move-in ready.

This was an excellent post.  Another thing that I always suggest is that if they are thinking of selling, tour some model homes to see what they do to make buyers want to move right in!
