What Homebuyers WantPosted on 06/04/14
With the real estate market in the midst of recovery, all signs point to the big picture. That is, rising prices and an overall decrease in inventory which further indicates a seller-favored market. That said, you may be asking yourself, what better time than now to sell my Northwest Florida real estate?
As you consider to sell your home, the thought of some home upgrades may cross your path. While granite countertops and stainless steel appliances are nice, they are not the only things that will help your home sell. Television shows have scared homeowners into repairs with thoughts of their home on the market for years, however this is not always the case. Research from the National Association of Realtors® shows that buyers are more practical than we are lead to believe. What are some of the top things buyers look for in a home? Well, location and quality of the neighborhood rank over open floor plans, while a home that is priced affordably will no doubt move more more quickly through the market.
It is important not to rule out upgrades all together. Buyers are still interested in a home’s technological and energy efficient qualities.
