Selling a home

It is no secret that some features in a home pay off big and could even bring more money to the table when the owner goes to sell. Last year, agents on ActiveRain, a real estate blogging network were asked to evaluate which of those features impressed buyers and increased the chances of selling. There were those that you would expect and others that may surprise you.

The agents rated the community where the home is located and the views top on the list. I agree that these are a major consideration for buyers as are the quality of the schools. The house features also make buyers notice especially the exterior appearance and a presence of a new roof.

Of course kitchen always impress a buyer and granite countertops are a serious upgrade that gives a high return for the seller. Outside living spaces like patio areas and outdoor kitchens as well as nice large yards and corner lots are factors often considered by buyers.

I am seeing remodeled baths sway buyers and beautiful hardwood floors as features buyers are expecting. If you are a seller and thinking about what to improve in your home, check out the list and see what we agents think brings more money to the value of the home and impresses the buyers. Then invest wisely.
