Selling a home is hard work! What upgrades are the most important when it comes to potential buyer appeal? Red Blue Realty gives sellers some insight with these
1. Landscaping: upgrading landscaping has been proven to increase home value - in terms of sales price and in terms of desirability to purchasers - between seven and fifteen percent.
2. Security systems such as burglar, fire, and hazard detection alarms
3. environmentally friendly alterations such as solar panels or programmable thermostats
4. New, energy efficient appliances
5. Technology assisting alterations:
In more detail, technology alterations include such simple steps as adding outlets with USB ports in every room, which appeals greatly to younger couples and individuals. Another draw for tech savvy buyers is updating wiring for both the ‘Net and flat screen televisions. And this isn’t a costly renovation: simply find the appropriate place to install a wireless router.
6. Without altering anything substantially, simple cleaning and polishing can be key to making a home attractive enough to draw and close buyers. Steam cleaning carpets and polishing wood floors is inexpensive and creates an environment that’s buyer friendly.
7. Make their homes look larger. This attractive illusion is easy, too. Add mirrors, use bright, light paint rather than dark colors, and in a kitchen, add a roll away cart with expandable shelves in lieu of an actual built in island, to utilize and enhance otherwise empty space. While the recommendation to paint a home to freshen it’s appeal is fairly standard, Red Blue Realty’s experts agree that choosing colors that are quiet in tone is a major plus, colors such as grey or beige to help create light and space in a home. Be sure and paint exterior windows and doors, as well as inside walls if you’re not planning to repaint the entire home.
8. The key recommendation for selling a home quickly remains the tried and true decision to price a home competitively, and under market value.
