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!

Home prices down, but NOT out!!

Calgary home prices continue to slide in most areas of the market, but not at the rate that many might expect. This is partly due to June’s resiliency in the detached and semi-detached sectors of the market, where sales compared to new listings and standing inventory started returning to more balanced levels.

“The detached market has been gradually moving towards more balanced conditions, helping to prevent price levels from declining at the faster rates we saw in the previous two quarters,” said CREB® chief economist Ann-Marie Lurie. “While this is welcomed news for sellers, it’s very likely that pricing challenges will persist in the housing market until economic conditions start to improve.”

Detached benchmark prices totaled $502,400, which is 0.4 per cent higher than last month, but 3.4 per cent lower than last year’s levels. This is the first time in eight months that detached prices recorded a monthly gain, helping ease the quarterly decline from 2.2 per cent in the first quarter to 0.7 per cent in the second quarter.

Overall sales activity remained relatively weak in June, falling by seven per cent to 2,028 units. Inventory levels went in the other direction and continued to climb in June to 5,973 units, 16 per cent higher than last year. Both the attached and apartment segments of the market have recorded inventory gains around 30 per cent, far greater than the year-over-year increase of five per cent in the detached sector.

Higher inventories and weaker demand continue to have a larger impact on pricing in the apartment and row sectors. June apartment prices slid by another 0.1 per cent over last month, pushing the average year-to-date benchmark price down 5.3 per cent below last year. Attached product experienced a monthly slide of 0.3 per cent, mostly due to steeper price declines in row style product.

“The price adjustments that we’ve seen in the past year have allowed some buyers to get into homes that were previously unattainable,” said CREB® president Cliff Stevenson. “This is especially true for homeowners with financial stability and a good amount of equity in their home. With so much choice out there, it’s giving consumers an opportunity to find their ideal home at a price they can afford.”
