Features Buyers are Looking For

When you are selling your home you want it to appeal to as many buyers as possible, at the same time you may not want to do a lot of work on your house.  You’re moving and leaving the house behind why bother with upgrades.  This is the wrong way of thinking, upgrades can help you sell your home quicker and for a better price.  The secret is to only add the sort of features buyers are looking for.  Let’s have a look at the minor features you can that will help you sell your home.

Outside Lighting

Curb appeal is everything, it is the first impression that buyers get when they come to your house.  Exterior lighting can help you improve that first impression.  Spotlights for your walkways and front doors allow visitors to see the property clearly and it can highlight the features.  You can install motion sensor lights fairly inexpensively so you don’t have to worry about turning light off and on, and it serves as a security feature making potential buyers feel safer.

Hardwood Flooring

Buyers love hardwood floors.  Aside from looking absolutely gorgeous they are also durable and easy to maintain.  Hardwood floors can vary in price dramatically but you can install them in most homes quickly and inexpensively.

Make the Home as Energy Efficient as Possible

Everybody wants to reduce their monthly costs and energy efficient appliance, hot water tanks, furnaces, windows or even the lighting will help buyers choose your house.  You may not be prepared to replace all of the windows or appliances, but do whatever you can to make the house more energy efficient.

Fix Your Outdoor Spaces

The interior of your home may be immaculate but don’t overlook the impact of the backyard and patio areas.  Families want to be able to envision their children playing in the yard and childless couples want to be able to see themselves entertaining in the back yard.  A great patio can help them see themselves living and enjoying your home.  A patio adds more living space to your home and appeals to almost all buyers, it’s well worth the investment.

When you are selling your home, the key to selling quickly and for the most money is to appeal to the broadest section of buyers possible.  Having the features that buyers want can help you do just that.  Energy efficiency, security and curb appeal can all help you get a better price on your home.
