Selling a home in Nashville involves advertising the property as well as preparation for showings. In order to attract the most attention from prospective buyers, mentioning the highlights and features of the property is of utmost importance. Your agent will take care of your detailed property description and marketing, but divulging each and every bit of information about your home is of utmost importance. Many homeowners overlook some of the obvious selling points because they feel that these are not stand-out details. However, what is deemed unimportant by one party is often considered a high priority by another. Here are a few items that should definitely be included on your priority lists.
Location And Proximity
Many prospective buyers are unfamiliar with certain neighborhoods but will insist that the home is located nearby to transit stations, park-and-rides, schools, or shopping centers. One of the major advertising points for apartment property management companies has to do with proximity, and homeowners should follow the same principle.
Whether your home is on a quiet cul-de-sac or directly next to a main transportation outlet, there will be a buyer who wants one or the other. Don’t forget to mention city or county parks, community centers and universities that are located close-by.
Many home buyers are senior adults who are looking for a smaller house because the kids are grown and have moved away. Others are caring for a parent who is partially handicapped. Masters on the main floor, walk-in showers and open living spaces both in and outside is important to mention. These elements will help contribute to your home being friendly for those wanting to retire, or searching for a home they can spend the rest of the their life in.
Many families are very concerned about the size of the closets, whether there is an outdoor shed, and the configuration of the garage. Mentioning walk-in closets, the amount of cabinet and pantry volume, and any shelving that exists in the garage is certain to attract attention from buyers. If you do not have a well organized home consider investing in shelving and organizational options. They are oftentimes inexpensive ways to add a lot of value to your space.
