5 Surprising Home Buyer Turn-Offs

home-buyer-turn-offs

In all honesty, these turn-offs are more common than they are surprising.  The accompanying illustrations show the extreme versions of each point. However, the following items should be fully considered before putting your home on the market.

Dirty or Crowded Homes turn-off-clutter

It can’t be overstated how important it is to de-clutter and clean. Buyers want to look at your home, not your things.

Irrational Seller Expectations

Be realistic about where your home sits relative to the market. Overpricing can spell disaster when it comes to selling a home.

Bad Listing Photos

turn-off-bad-photoMake sure online listing photos show your home in the best light, and give a true sense of the space. And, again, no clutter. We will often recommend that a professional photographer come in to photograph your home. A professional won’t end up in the photos…

New Upgrades Done To A Specific Taste

Upgrading your kitchen can be a wise investment before listing your home. Just make sure you do it in a neutral style, as no one wants to rip out something that’s been newly renovated.

All of these photos are actual listing photos, posted to their respective Multiple Listing Services. This is not an early April Fools’. Many thanks to Terrible Real Estate Agent Photos for these pictures.

3 Reasons to Think Twice (and 3 Reasons to GO AHEAD!)

3-reasons-to-think-twice-13-reasons-to-think-twice-2

  1. It’s Too Expensive
  2. The Location Isn’t What You Want
  3. You’re Unsure About Your Future Income

 

 

It’s Too Expensive: If it’s too expensive for your budget, that’s one thing. But you shouldn’t pay for something that’s overpriced relative to other nearby homes.

The Location Isn’t What You Want: The saying is true: you can change the house, but you can’t change the neighborhood.

You’re Unsure About Your Future Income: You should feel confident in your job security, or that you have savings needed to handle a temporary interruption in income.

3-reasons-to-think-twice-3

 

  1. It’s The Home You Judge Others Against
  2. You Can See Yourself Living There
  3. It’s Got “Good Bones”

 

 

It’s The Home You Judge Others Against:  If you find yourself referring to one specific house even when you’re visiting others, it may be a sign.

You Can See Yourself Living There: You already have the living room furniture laid out in your mind – and it fits!

It’s Got “Good Bones”: Sure, maybe the wallpaper isn’t perfect, but things like light fixtures and carpet are easily customized to suit your style.
