Features That Will Help You Sell Your Observatory Park Home Faster

February 15, 2017

Sellers often ask their agents, “How long will it take it to sell my home?” A number of factors can affect the market, so the truth is there’s no way to determine exactly how long it will take to sell a home. But, there are some features that are more attractive to buyers than others, so they can influence how long your home stays on the market. Your Observatory Park home could sell much faster than expected if it has any of these desirable features:

Open Floor Plans

Today’s buyers want a home with a welcoming open floor plan. Not only do open floor plans make it easier to entertain friends and family, but they also let more natural light into the home, which is another reason why they are so popular. If you have a home with an open floor plan, make sure you ask your real estate agent to play this feature up in listing so buyers know your home is a must-see.

Outdoor Gathering Spaces

Buyers aren’t just looking at what’s inside the home when they decide which one they should buy—they want to see what’s outside, too. Just like with open floor plans, buyers love having outdoor gathering spaces so they have one more option when it comes to entertaining guests. Even if you don’t have a lot of space outdoors, if you have a small patio or quiet seating area near a garden, this should help draw more buyers in to see your home.

Hardwood Floors

Interior design trends come and go, but hardwood floors are forever. It’s hard to find a buyer who doesn’t immediately fall in love with the warm and luxurious look of hardwood floors. Hardwood instantly upgrades the room and makes it look more pulled together and elegant. It’s also incredibly versatile, so it will almost always complement the buyer’s existing furniture. Plus, this flooring material is more durable than carpet, which will need to be replaced every 8 to 10 years due to wear and tear. Hardwood is appealing to all types of buyers, but especially those with children or animals. When selling, hardwood floor beats carpet.  

Storage Space

Buyers, especially those with a family, tend to move when they run out of space in their current home. This means they are on the prowl for a home with a lot more storage space. Make sure your real estate agent talks about your home’s space in the listing. Include information on the number of closets and pantries, and try to get an estimate of the square footage in the garage and attic. All of this information will make your listing much more attractive to buyers, who will be knocking down your door trying to make the first offer on your home!
