The Three Biggest Turn-Ons for Homebuyers
Realty Times (04/08/14) Evans, Blanche
When preparing a home for sale, there are a few things that tend to attract buyers.
1. To improve curb appeal, the home must be prettier, cleaner and in better condition than neighboring properties, and this can be accomplished by power washing the exterior, hand washing the windows, painting the front door and replacing the door hardware and porch sconces.
2. Buyers also love homes with more space, and sellers with large homes should ensure the rooms are free of clutter. Storing excess belongings, clearing off tables and countertops, and staging the home can help make smaller spaces look bigger.
3. Finally, sellers should update their properties to grab buyers' attention, from replacing dated countertops, cabinet pulls and appliances in the kitchen to repainting the rooms in neutral hues.
