It’s tough out there, but not impossible. Recent reports indicate that Young Home Buyers (Generation X) will likely lead the home buying charge. Buyers, such as these today, have strong ideas about what they want in a home. It isn’t all about price, but is about character, features, and personalization. You, as a seller, can help your cause by keeping these things in mind.
Home buyers are looking for well maintained and clean homes. Hire an inspector to take a look at your property and make suggestions for repairs before a contract is submitted. Make sure your home is clean and de-cluttered. Consider hiring a cleaning company to do a deep clean, clean carpets, gutters, decks, windows. Have the lawn groomed, mulched, add flowers and greenery. Home buyers today are looking for transitions to outdoor entertaining spaces.
The majority of today’s buyers are looking for open spaces as opposed to formal spaces. If you have a more traditional home you can cozy up formal rooms by adding stuffed seating, gameboard displays, or thinking of ways to place options for the room in the potential buyer’s mind.
In short, help your Agent help you. Keep your home show ready and keep in mind that the market is tough. What can you do to make sure that your home “stands out” in a buyer’s mind? A few dollars spent now may just help you on your way to your next dream home.
