Add to Your Home’s Sales Appeal

SoldIf you’ve decided it’s time to list your home for sale, you may be wondering who might be interested in buying it. Understanding who your target audience is and what they are looking can position your home to sell quicker and for a better price.

If you’re home is your first purchase it’s likely to of been a starter home and still be one. If you live in an area where many younger buyers are living, you may want to ensure that will add appeal to this target audience.

Here are a few budget-minded ideas that you may consider.

One of the hottest trends in home décor and interior design is to get rid of the standard white trim and molding by adding color to these areas. Neutral hues in shades of gray have universal appeal. Generally, you will want a more neutral color like creamy beige on the walls when executing a look with colored trim.

For just a few dollars, you can update your light fixtures. Many are rather affordable, yet stylish and come in a wide range of finishes. Light fixtures can easily set the tone of the room and may be focal points. Outdated fixtures may have limited appeal to millennial buyers who are looking for a home that is modern and current with today’s trends.

In many older homes, rooms are often built with outdated uses in mind. Today’s millennial buyers may be looking for a home with an exercise room, a media room or a study rather than a formal living or dining area. With that in mind, you may consider how you can stage your home to show that it can be used for a modern purpose. Talk with our real estate agent and get their opinion first, you might find that moving your formal dining room set into storage, adding French doors and an affordable desk with side chairs for staging purposes is just the thing to make your home more appealing.

These are just one of several options available that may give your home broader appeal to a younger audience shopping for a modern floor plan. Take a little time and do some online surfing to get other budget ideas to improve your home’s sale appeal and increase its listing value.
