Amenities Home Buyers Crave:
If you are selling your home, it pays to
know what modern buyers are looking for. The right amenities can make a world
of difference, helping your home sell more quickly and for a higher price
Part of selling a home is giving the buyer what they want. Here are some of the things modern buyers crave.
The right lighting can make any home look better, and upgrading your lights could make a world of difference. Something as simple as installing new spotlight on the front door or a set of solar-powered lights along your front walkway will enhance your home’s curb appeal and give would-be buyers a good first impression.
Updating the lighting inside your home is a smart move as well. Replacing your old light bulbs with new and brighter LEDs will make your home look airier and more inviting and save you money at the same time.
A Wireless Security System
Security is an important consideration for the modern home buyer, but many homeowners have come to dislike old-line security companies and hard-wired systems. Modern buyers are looking for a better solution – one that can be easily moved from home to home. Investing in a wireless security system can make your home more attractive to would-be buyers and even boost its selling price.
New Energy-Efficient Windows
Replacing the windows is a difficult job, one that few buyers will want to tackle. That makes a home with new and more energy-efficient windows more attractive than ever.
If you have recently replaced your old windows with newer models, be sure to let the Realtor® know. Today’s buyers love energy-efficient windows, and they know that those new windows will save them money every month.
A Home Office
These days a lot of people work from their homes, and the presence of a home office can be a big plus for those buyers. Adding a standalone office to your home prior to putting it on the market probably does not make sense, but if you already have one make sure it is prominently highlighted in any marketing materials.
Ample storage is an important consideration for modern home buyers, and built-in storage solutions are very popular know. From recessed bookcases built into the bedroom walls to shelving units incorporated into the garage, the presence of these storage solutions can be a major selling point.
Knowing what buyers are looking for is one of the best ways to sell your home quickly. The more attractive your home is to would-be buyers the easier it will be to sell. The amenities listed above are in especially high demand, so be sure to point them out to all potential buyers.
