Working with first time home buyers,

I noticed - they want the open concept home.

Specially Kitchen, Living Room, Dining Room should be open concept.

A good advice in this re-post from Debe Maxwell .

Home Sellers, TEAR DOWN THOSE WALLS!

Home Sellers, TEAR DOWN THOSE WALLS!  

Why Investing in an Open Floorplan Could Increase Your Home’s ValueCharlotte Homeowner Tips

While home design preferences come and go over time but, the open floorplan concept has remained top-of-mind for most home buyers.  If you’re ready to take the sledgehammer to your walls and open up that living space, not so fast!   First, be certain that you have an architect or builder/contractor evaluate those walls for you, ascertaining that they are NOT load-bearing walls!

Here are a few reasons this new open design may make your home look more appealing to potential buyers when you are ready to list your home.

 A Clean Palette        

Many home buyers cannot envision filling space and simply expect their dream home to reach out and grab them when they enter the home.  While a house with many walls can put a damper on creative thought, an open floorplan can often be the ideal space for those who are interested in reimagining your home for themselves.

Drenched in Light         

There are few things that will impact the overall look of a room like lighting, and with fewer walls, your home will easily draw the best of natural light inside.  While you’ll want to choose your furnishings and decorations carefully to effectively enhance the look of your space, an open concept space that’s illuminated perfectly will surprise you with the kind of positive response it will get.

A Great Space for Entertaining         

Charlotte home seller tips - prep your home by removing walls

Use of columns can allow partial removal of a load-bearing wall, opening up the space for a dramatic change in your floorplan. 

**Consult your architect before removing any walls!

We all love going out to dinner or meeting our friends at a new, hot local restaurant but, a home with an open entertaining space can be an even better way to get everyone together.  With all of the flexibility and space that this type of layout affords, it can attract many types of buyers who will look forward to using it for barbecues, dinner parties and many other events.

 A Welcoming Look         

Open space can come to mean many different things depending on who’s designing it but, with the appropriate flooring and right lighting, this type of home can go from ‘blah’ to welcoming without a huge amount of work or expense.  The clean lines and simple feel of open space can truly convert your space into an architectural piece, easily increasing the price that potential buyers are willing to pay for your home.

Remember, an open concept can be the kind of real estate purchase that never seems to go out of style.  If you’re thinking of listing your Charlotte home and are curious about your options, give me a call for an in-home evaluation.  We have a great vendor list that we can share with you as well.
