Top 5 Improvements Buyers Will Look for in Mentor Homes for Sale this Spring Market

Magnifying Glass with House

 

Putting your Mentor Home for Sale up in this Spring market has many sellers asking What are the Top 5 Improvements Buyers will look for in Mentor Homes for Sale this Spring.    

 

How can a Mentor Home for Sale attract the most buyers and bring about an offer?    

 

When I am working with Mentor Home Buyers I find they are really looking to do as little as possible with the Mentor Home for Sale.  Even buyers who say they are willing to fix up a house end up being much more attracted to those Mentor Homes for Sale that need little or no work --especially when the houses are within a few thousand $$ of each other.   With the amount of houses on sale, the inventory is large which makes it very easy for a Mentor Home Buyer to say next if they don’t find what they are looking for in your Mentor Home for Sale.  

 

The reality is that there is enough inventory that the buyers can be very picky and the houses that are shining are going quickly leaving the not so nice ones to just sit and sit and sit.

 

From my experience, I’ve compiled this list of the Top 5 Improvements Buyers are looking for in Mentor Homes for Sale.

 

1.)  The Kitchen -  one of the most used homes in a room and buyers love it when they see that a kitchen has been remodeled.

 

2.)  Bathrooms -  many buyers don’t want the hassle and work it takes to remodel a bathroom and many times buyers are very afraid of the cost that goes along with it.

 

3.)  Flooring -  whether its new carpet, refinished/New wood floors or change out from linoleum/vinyl to tile = buyers notice this.   Buyers often feel this is a big expense and are excited when this does not need to be done by them.

 

4.)  Fixtures - lighting, faucets and door handles.  Sellers would be surprised how many Mentor Home for Sale buyers notice these details and often comment on how much a house has been cared for because of these change outs.  These items can make a Mentor Home for Sale feel newer.

 

5.)  Exterior of the House -  The attraction starts from the outside - yes! people still judge a book by it’s cover.  And your Mentor Home for Sale will be judged by it’s looks too.  Buyers will be more drawn to house that is newly painted with updated colors and siding that is shiny and fresh.  

 

A house will sell itself or it Will Not sell itself!  Give the Mentor Home Buyer every reason to say Yes, Yes, Yes to the Mentor Home for Sale you wish to put on the Spring Market.

Hi Christine.....Improved homes are always a preferred home to one that needs attention..... all real estate is local and our market has a shortage of inventory right now....
