4 Features Home Buyers Check

Selling or thinking of selling your home? Here are the 4 major points buyers focus on when looking at a house:

Bathrooms.

A lot of time is spent in bathrooms. Time doing hair and makeup, showering or having baths to relax as well as occasionally taking time to read a magazine or book. Considering this we know that buyers will be very critical of the details – is it bright? Are the mirrors the right size? Is there enough counter space? Is there a soaker tub?

The main goal is to allow them to be able to picture themselves living in the space. The best way to do that is by making sure the room is in tip-top shape and staged correctly. Check that the grout is clean in the bath or shower, amenities are unused and a fresh loofa or bar of soap is in the shower. These little details will keep the room feeling fresh and give potential buyers the opportunity to imagine the space as their own.

Living space.

This is the space that is lived in the most and often used for entertaining. Maximize the space here – remove extra clutter to keep it open for easy mobility. Keep pillows, blankets and the like to a minimum so that there is space to sit and relax. Take care to dust the mantle and all ledges so that when buyers take a second to sit and observe they are not distracted by dust.

Kitchen.

Many people consider this the most important space in the house! This room will be used for entertaining, cooking meals, and serving holiday feasts. Function is the key selling point here. Make certain to remove any clutter, take away any small appliances that do not increase the décor or fit the persona of the kitchen. Ensure everything is clean, including the inside of the fridge, as it will assist the buyer in envisioning themselves cooking and entertaining.

Smells.

The senses have a huge impact on what a buyer thinks and how they remember a home. Make sure there is no overwhelming scents guarantying the buyer takes away their memories of the space – not just how it smelled. A helpful tip is to place a dab of vanilla on a light bulb or two throughout the house to give it a welcoming smell that is not overpowering.

Overall, make certain your home is appealing to the senses, clean, and clutter-free. This will ensure it leaves a lasting positive impression on possible home buyers!

Landscape Your Property to Sell

Many potential buyers drive by a property they’re interested in before they arrange to view it with their real estate agent. If the outside of your home is unkempt or neglected, your potential buyers may overlook it, even if it’s updated and clean on the inside. Make sure that potential buyers get a great impression of your home by improving and maintaining its curb appeal.

Make Your Landscape Pop

• Add colour: Low-maintenance seasonal plants in brightly coloured planters add a pop of colour to your landscape and create visual points of interest.
• Plant colourful flowers: Inexpensive annuals, such as pansies and daisies, are an easy way to add splashes of colour to your garden beds. Plant flowers in complementary shades or the same colour for a high-impact monochrome effect.
• Frame your entryway: Well-maintained shrubs tie together the look of a yard. When placed on either side of your entryway, they can create a pleasing symmetry that enhances the exterior of the home. Just be sure to keep them trimmed and well-shaped.

Maintain Your Landscape

• Keep your garden beds in top shape. Weeds and dead plants may give buyers the impression that the rest of the home has been neglected. Pull the weeds, and clear away any dead leaves and plants.
• Mulch makes the garden look more polished. It also helps the soil conserve moisture and prevents weeds. If you have mulch in your gardens or around your trees, freshen it up with a new layer.
• Mow your lawn. A well-manicured lawn makes an immediate positive first impression on potential buyers. Plan to mow your lawn once a week; more often if it grows rapidly.
