Top 10 Things That Make Home Buyers Bite
Tip 1. A Nice Entryway
Impress buyers right off the bat with a beautiful entrance. "I always tell sellers to put a fresh coat of paint on the front door.This problem, more common in condos and apartments, is solved by cleverly placing furniture to create more of an entryway.
Tip 2. Hardwood Floors
Realtors agree that most buyers are hunting for hardwood. You can bet that of all types of flooring, hardwood floors will "have the most longevity and will never go out of style,"
Tip 3. Fab Fixtures
Replacing knobs and drawer pulls is the quickest way to make over a bathroom or kitchen. And when it comes to faucets, for $60 or $70 dollars you can buy something infinitely better than what you likely already have.
Tip 4. Beautiful Baths
According to real estate agents, marble counters, whirlpool baths and steam showers up the attractiveness of any bathroom. But if you don't have these luxury items, it may be more practical to address the unattractive aspects of your existing bath. Rip out that big sheet mirror and those globe lights that look like you're in a theater dressing room.
Replace them with an elegant framed mirror don't be afraid to look outside the bathroom section and sconce lighting on either side.
Tip 5. Counter top Considerations
Granite is the top pick because it's hard, nonporous and easy to care for. But then again, so is Corian, so are composite stone surfaces such as Silestone
Tip 6. Steel This Idea
Why do buyers go bananas for stainless-steel appliances? It's the power of suggestion. "A kitchen with stainless appliances looks like a commercial kitchen. It makes people think that they're great cooks.
Tip 7. Pre-Organized Closets
Just as stainless appliances convince buyers that they are better cooks, closet organizers make buyers believe that they are better homemakers. If your closets are unadorned, don't underestimate the importance of this easy addition
Tip 8. Light Up
Lighting is probably the most overlooked, yet the most important aspect of interior decoration. If your home doesn't get a lot of natural light, consider installing recessed lighting or new sconces, or both, so the buyer won't struggle to figure out how to brighten up the space.
Tip 9. Built-In Bonus
many buyers view built-ins as free furniture.Well-crafted bookshelves, china cabinets and entertainment units can make a home stand out. Sometimes it's better to have freestanding pieces that look like built-ins, that you can give the buyer the option to purchase.
Tip 10. Grass Is Greener
Are the homebuyers in your area families with young children? If so, they'll be drawn to spaces with a flat, open lawn.
Were you thinking of putting in a concrete patio or rock garden? Don't bother if you're putting your home on the market. A flat yard is a real plus. Spend some money and put in the grass. It's a good seller
