Things that Make Buyers Fall in Love with a House

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Sandra Nickel REALTORS

Perhaps you have imagined your dream house. You’ve pictured it in your mind, created lengthy Pinterest boards with images, but can only hope that you might find it in real life. Some buyers must look for a long time before finding the home of their dreams, but others know right away.

When reality matches the vision you have for your home, you might fall in love at first sight.

Here are some things that make buyers know they had found “the one” the moment they see it:


Nothing says “welcome home” better than a beautifully appointed front porch. A creative front door with porch railings painted a complementary color is a great way to draw a potential buyer into a home. That first look can make or break the interest of buyers.


That neighborhood full of “cookie cutter” houses may be the right area for you, but you don’t want your house to look like everyone else’s. A home that stands out is the one for you. For example, maybe that one white brick house in a sea of red brick houses is just different enough to make it the right one for you.


Open concept has been popular for a long time, but maybe your dream house affords more privacy. When you walk into a home that has defined rooms that serve specific purposes, you have found what you have envisioned as the perfect home for you.


Perhaps the inside doesn’t matter quite as much as the outside to you. Despite the imperfections in the house itself, that huge, beautiful yard is all you ever wanted. Or maybe any house in a neighborhood that provides access to walking trails and open spaces will do the job.


If your dream house is one that you design yourself, then you might just fall in love with a fixer upper that has good bones. Just make sure to educate yourself about what it will take to make the vision you have for your home a reality.


Do you have a work commute that sucks the joy out of life? Finding a home that is in just the right location can certainly be the fulfillment of a dream home!


A chef’s kitchen with high end appliances and tons of counter and storage space may be all it takes for the cook in the family to say “this is the one!”
