Upgrades Home Buyers Love
When it comes time to sell a home, you often find yourself making repairs and upgrades to make the home as attractive as possible to buyers. Why not enjoy those upgrades while you're still living there? If you plan to make improvements to your home, these are some of the most desirable features for today's buyers:
According to a report from the National Association of Home Builders, four of the top 10 most desirable features for home buyers are all about energy: Energy Star appliances, windows and overall rating, as well as higher insulation than required by code.
More than 80% of home buyers list hardwoods as a feature they're looking for. Upgrading your floors or replacing carpet with wood will add value to your home when it comes time to sell.
In today's market, outdoor space is a top priority for home buyers across generations (84% of home buyers in theNAHB study). A great way to improve your home with a future sale in mind is to add or upgrade your patio. You'll enjoy relaxing and entertaining there, and future buyers will love it!
