Home sellers today are looking for that edge, something that will set their home apart from the others on the block or even in the greater real estate market. You might have your home already listed in the Park City area, but are now hoping to ramp up visits and interest. You’ve come to the right place! These four secrets are tricks of the Utah real estate trade and can help boost your home’s image to buyers and even move along your home sale.
Upgrade Look at your home as a potential buyers— does it need an upgrade? If you’re being proactive, now is the ideal time to makeover certain rooms and features before you list. But beware, you need to make a great first impression as homebuyers today know what they’re looking for and what they do not want in a potential Utah home. Top features to replace include: old carpeting, wallpaper, kitchen appliances and countertops. In general, homebuyers tend to be attracted to stainless steel appliances and granite or granite-like countertops.
Stage Your Home Today’s homebuyer wants to feel like they can move right in— they want to feel like the space suits them. Without staging, this can be difficult. You’ll want your home to appeal to the widest range of buyers and that all starts on the outside with landscaping. Your first task is de-cluttering your home and yard. Homebuyers who visit the property should not feel overwhelmed by any lawn care tools or bicycles that might be outside. Make sure everything is in it’s place and do a furniture “edit” to help rooms feel larger.
Curb Appeal Like I said, the outside of your home is just as important as the inside. Curb appeal sets the tone for the visit and is essentially what Park City area homebuyers use to make assumptions about the property. To boost your curb appeal, try the following:
- Power wash the house
- Power wash the sidewalks and driveway
- Give the front door a fresh coat of paint
- Replace address numbers
