Houses are not Museums

not-museumFrom a buyer’s perspective age has depreciated every thing in your house regardless of usage or cleanliness.

Unfortunately today’s buyers are as critical about the style and age of the appliances as they are about the condition of the carpet. If both are new, they pay a higher price. If the kitchen looks old – even if it’s never been used – they feel the home is dated and want to offer a lower price.

Every now and then we hear homeowners say things like,

“It hasn’t been upgraded since I bought it, but it was the model home in the neighborhood.”

“The kitchen is original, but we’re only here 3 months out of the year.”

My tip for seller’s today is to remember buyer’s pay more for the right upgrades than it costs to do the right upgrades. Keep this in mind when you’re preparing to sell your home. We help sellers make wise decisions on upgrades in order to only fix the items that bring more value. If you’d like a little help, call my office. We’ll schedule a free, no-obligation meeting with our certified home stager to help point you in the right direction.
