What is the 'MUST HAVE' on your New Home List?
Some may be singing "I'm dreaming of a white kitchen" -
For others, perhaps vaulted ceilings, wood floors, or attached garage...??
In addition to the standard 'must-have' items, some sellers may not have considered that most buyers are VERY interested in hidden storage space. Most people have excess 'stuff' and are looking for deep uncluttered closets with shelving, and well organized unfinished basement areas to accommodate their collected treasures.
When touring a home, a buyer is usually considering if their 'stuff' will fit in the home's 'space' - so I always emphasize to a seller the huge importance of taking some time to be sure that in addition to the open home areas being neat and clean, be sure your 'out-of-sight storage areas are tidy too.
Some things to consider:
- Are books stacked like skyscrapers ready to tumble?
- Are clothes jam packed into closets?
- Are shoes thrown into a heap?
- Are toys and games a jumbled explosion?
In essence, Do the storage spaces seem like a cluttered mess?
It's simple...An organized space is an appealing space.
