While there are some things that buyers look for in a property that can’t be easily fixed (for example, the neighbourhood it’s located in) there are other things that can be fixed before selling to help bring more buyers to your front door.
So for those who want to know what Liverpool’s homebuyers are looking for – here are the top five:
Curb appeal – A house’s front yard is its biggest advertisement. Buyers will create an instant opinion on your property based on aspects such as the fence or how well the front yard is kept and maintained.
Luckily you can add instant curb appeal by cleaning and tidying up the front yard, and fixing any issues with the fence.
Open floor plans – Gone are the days where kitchens where hidden away in a small nook of the house. Most homebuyers today look for home layouts where the kitchen, living and dining areas are all incorporated together to create one big light and airy space.
Sometimes an open plan layout can be achieved by simply knocking out a wall, however make sure you get advice and permission from the local council and a builder and structural engineer before proceeding with the removal of any walls in your home.
Hardwood floors and fresh paint –Wild paint colours and old carpets can be big buyer turnoffs. A fresh coat of paint and polished hardwood floors help make a home feel clean and fresh and are very appealing to buyers.
If you currently have carpet in your home, check underneath as there might be beautiful hardwood floors hiding below.
Modern kitchens and bathrooms – A lot of buyers want homes they can move and live in right away, and a dated kitchen and bathroom is generally seen as something that will need to be fixed down the track.
It might not be worth fixing up a kitchen or bathroom before selling, but if they are then they can be huge drawcards.
Air-conditioning – There’s no questioning that Liverpool can be an extremely hot place in the summer. Ceiling fans are important too, but as many will know, there is often no other way to beat the heat then with a good air-conditioning unit, and some buyers may look out for this. In winter, reverse cycle air-conditioning is very appealing too.
Your property can also have extra appeal if it has one or more of the following:
