Every home buyer is different; their wants and needs in a home are different. What matters to one family might not make a difference to another. That being said, it’s essential that as you prepare to put your home on the market, you understand which rooms of your home people are most likely to care about when they browse your home.
One of the rooms that most people spend time in is the kitchen. It’s a room that gets used daily and most people browsing a home will come in with a checklist of items that they’d like to have in their next kitchen. It could be anything from available storage and counter space to granite countertops and an island. If you know which items make your kitchen unique and desirable, make sure that you showcase them.
For example, declutter your countertops so that it not only looks like there’s enough storage to keep your counters clean, but so that anyone visiting your house can also see all of the counter space this room has to offer.
Number of Bedrooms
The next point that we’re going to cover is one that you should anticipate: bedrooms. This is another point where people are likely to come into the house their visiting with a checklist of what they need and the ideal size that they’d like to have. You know better than anyone what the size of your bedrooms are and how functional they are, so make it work in your favor. There are countless design tactics that can help you make each of your bedrooms look bigger, taller, warmer, etc. — take advantage of them.
The kitchen definitely gets used on a regular basis, but it’s not quite as often as the living room. This is a place for families to enjoy time together and relax, so it needs to be something that they could envision themselves in. These types of rooms are one of the easiest rooms to get cluttered, so it’s crucial that you tidy up this space so that when someone does come and visit they can get a feel for what it would look like if they were to move in.
As silly as it may seem, the bathrooms are one of those important rooms that people will look at when they’re browsing a home. Cleaning is definitely a must when it comes to showing off your bathroom during a showing. There may be a list of things that people hope to find in their next home, but it’s usually a little more flexible than other rooms of the house.
