If you plan on selling a home, then one of the first things you should do before listing your property is to determine what buyers actually want. Knowing what buyers want will allow you to invest in improvements that can help boost your home’s value and sell it more quickly. It can also help you market your property more effectively by highlighting features of your home that are in demand. The following are a few things that homebuyers have been looking for, particularly during the pandemic:
- Home office – A significant number of people began working from home during the pandemic, and many of those people will continue to work from home. As such, a home office has become an absolute must for many homebuyers. If you have a spare bedroom, consider setting it up as a home office.
- Segmented space – Open floor plans were all the rage not too long ago – but that was before families were stuck at home together. Segmenting your space (such as through the use of pocket doors and other dividers) helps to preserve the quiet and privacy that your family desires when everyone is home.
- Upgraded outdoor space – There’s no doubt that everyone has a newfound appreciation for the outdoors after having been stuck inside for months. As such, many homebuyers want to make sure that they have an outdoor space they can enjoy should they ever be forced into lockdown again. Upgrade your outdoor space by investing in various outdoor living areas (such as installing a fire pit) to attract even more potential buyers.
These are just a few things that homebuyers are looking for these days. For more advice on what homebuyers are looking for and on selling a home in general, be sure to contact us at Randy Lindsay today.
