As the seller, you can control three factors that will affect the sale of your home:
Unfortunately, the most influential factor in determining your home’s appeal to buyers is something you can’t control: its location. According to the National Association of Realtors, neighborhood quality is the No. 1 reason buyers choose certain homes. The second most influential factor is commute times to work and school.
While some buyers want to simplify their lives and downsize to a smaller home, home sizes in general have continued to increase over the decades, nearly doubling in size since the 1950s. Smaller homes typically appeal to first-time home buyers and “empty nesters”.
Preferences in floor plans and amenities go in and out of fashion, and I can inform you of the “hot ticket” items that are selling homes in your market. If your home lacks certain features, you can renovate to increase its appeal, but that’s not always the right move. Using market conditions and activity in your neighborhood as a gauge, I can help you determine whether the investment is likely to help or hinder your profit margin and time on the market. If you do decide to renovate/update, I can help you plan the work, hire the contractors and get the projects done so we can get your home listed.
