Some examples of what a Hudson County MLS Agent will do for you as a seller:
As in life, the little things are important. When you put your house on the market for sale, you want to be sure your house is in good condition and looks attractive to buyers—both outside and inside. The way you present your property to prospective buyers can make all the difference between success and failure. Here’s a look at some of the intangibles to consider to make a buyer feel more comfortable about buying your home.
First impressions matter.
What buyers see first!
Once buyers are hooked!
That said, here’s a look at which home improvements buyers look for and those that consistently have the best return on investment:
Remodeled kitchens are a big winner. A simple remodel can take your home from on the market to off better than any other improvement to your home.
Remember curb appeal? A well-trimmed, manicured lawn and colorful plants and garden is a special. The return here is second only to a remodeled kitchen.
Sitting around a fireplace and enjoying a fire with family and friends is important and most buyers will greatly appreciate this additional feature.
Whether the house has one, two or even three existing bathroom, having one more can make the difference to many a discriminating buyer.
With more and more professionals working from home or tele-commuting, this extra room will add that extra "something" to your house.
Master Suite Addition
Many people today enjoy the comforts of a larger bedroom but beware of the considerable cost. It may make more sense to combine existing rooms or spaces.
Like the fireplace, a deck will add an ambiance most buyers will enjoy and relish for many years.
Your home will most definitely look better but a dollar-for-dollar return on your investment is unlikely.
New Doors and Windows/Insulation
Energy efficiency is a big plus for today’s environmentally-conscious consumer. While it will help the sale new doors and windows will not significantly increase the sale price of your home.
Swimming Pool & the Skylight
These two items are perhaps the most debated amongst the experts on whether or not they add value to your home. It’s a toss-up.
