What is it about your home that stands out? What will buyers like most about it? What are your property’s most enticing features? Answering those questions will help you determine which features to emphasize when selling your home. After all, you want buyers to notice and appreciate your home’s best characteristics.
But here’s the challenge...
It can be difficult to determine which features of your home are particularly desirable to buyers. You live there! So, there might be a fantastic characteristic of your property that you’ve gotten used to. You might not even realize its value.
One way to gain perspective is to ask friends and family, “What is it about our home that you like most? What stands out to you? What do you dislike?” Ask them to be candid and blunt with their answers. Often, they’ll reveal characteristics about your home that may surprise you. Their “fresh” eyes will help you identify the parts of your home that will really impress buyers and you’ll definitely gain insights that will help you when listing.
Another technique is to compare your property to others in the neighbourhood. Buyers often target neighbourhoods or even certain streets, so realizing how your home stands out can be helpful when marketing it. For example, your property might have a larger backyard than most others on the street, or it might have a lot of recent upgrades.
