As a home seller you can work with your realtor to identify the potential buyers, but chances are you may have a young first time buyer. If you have an older home you may have to make some adjustments to your marketing and tweak your home so as to appeal to the young buyers. So stop thinking what you would like in your home but think on the lines as to what would appeal to a young buyer.
Offer Perspective on Your Home Conditions– Many first-time buyers are wary of buying a home which will require a great deal of maintenance, so if you can’t do it offer a rebate so things can work out.
Market your Community– On the checklist for first-time home buyers, good schools, recreational means, a sound neighborhood for their families to grow, and good communities are on the top. Your buyers want to visualize a lifestyle for themselves, so provide them with the correct picture and information that helps them recognize the benefits of living in a community.
Go for Neutral Colors– Stick with warm neutrals for wall color. On trend neutrals like grays allow potential homebuyers to envision bringing in complementary colors and clean lined furnishings to make their own.
Invest in white Cabinetry– Young buyers prefer white or off-white cabinets and don’t want grandma’s ebony or rosewood clutter. Consider kitchen uplift if you have dark drab kitchen it will definitely give you some brownie points.
Update your Appliances– Many young homebuyers cannot fathom buying a home without stainless steel appliances, so please change your outdated appliances.
Countertops– Look for simple countertops. Granite or stone countertops are a must for most young buyers; it will make the difference between whether they choose your home over your neighbors. Choose granite which is almost black with minimal color.
Throw open your shower space– Young people love large, open glass showers, the days of garden tubs are out. Keep it simple for families with young children. Make sure your home has no unfinished projects or red flags for families with young kids, your home should be the ready to move in type.
Consider selling your home as a fixer-upper, if your neighborhood is sought out by young crowd you can definitely get a good bargain. Keeps the rate competitive so you can get good buyers knocking at your door. Showcase your home’s best features. All buyers love to see a neat and clean home but younger buyers love a home with lots of natural light. Stage your home by removing the clutter and storing away dark, heavy furniture. Add a few mirrors so you have enough light bouncing off. Ask advice from your young friends and make changes so that your prospective buyers are easily impressed.
