What Buyers are Looking for in a Home

The first thing that we tell sellers when they ask us what buyers are looking for is that they are looking for homes that are move-in ready. So, how do you get your home move-in ready and irresistible to buyers? We have a list for you of steps to take so that your home will look attractive as possible to potential buyers. Here's what buyers are looking for:
  • Buyers want curb appeal. A nice lawn is the first thing buyers will see when they come to your house. 
  • Next, you will want to make sure that the inside of your house looks its best. The first thing buyers see when they walk through the door is your paint and your carpet. Making sure your carpet is clean and your paint is neutral can go a long way in making a great first impression.
  • A clean closet goes a long way. We tell sellers that being able to see the floor in your closet shows potential buyers all of the space that you have.
  • Everything in the home should be as minimal as possible. You want these buyers to be able to see themselves living in your home and removing excess decorations and pictures makes the house more neutral and inviting.
  • Using a professional photographer to properly stage your home is huge. We use a photographer on all of our listings and having them take great pictures is huge. This way, buyers can fall in love with your house before they even walk in the door.
