As the real estate market evolves, so do the buyers who are hoping to find the perfect house to call home. While once you could simply pop a “for sale” sign in your yard, today’s market might require a little more work, and while we are in a seller’s market, today’s buyers have a few qualities that they’re searching for. So, rather than investing a lump sum of money into home renovation to spruce up your home, try to add some of the qualities listed below.
One of the simplest and often least expensive upgrades buyers are searching for is exterior lighting. You can add lighting that is as simple or complex as you’d like. A bonus for buyers i if you have trim lighting installed as it allows for easy Holiday decor.
Laundry Room/Mud Room
Having a room dedicated to laundry is a must for today’s buyers. If your laundry is located in your garage, on your patio, or in a closet, you might want to consider finding a way to re-configure the space in your home to allow for a laundry room.
Ceiling fans are exceptionally desirable among buyers, especially in warmer climates such as Arizona as it allows for air movement, thus cooling the home and making it more comfortable without the need of running the air conditioner and spiking the energy bill.
The oversized farm sinks are no longer the coveted sink within kitchens, but rather, buyers have shifted and now prefer to see homes with large side-by-side kitchen sinks.
Energy Efficient Windows
Just as with ceiling fans, energy efficient windows are a must for today’s buyers as they not only allow for a greener home, but the efficiency allows for a lower energy bill which can result in a more comfortable and climate-controlled home.
Storage has always been a hot commodity among home buyers, however, now more than ever, pantry space is essential. A walk-in pantry is said to be sought after by more than 80% of buyers, so if you’re able, try adding a pantry with a little rearranging and renovating of your kitchen space.
