Resale Value

We all know that certain cars have better resale than others, but why? Well, Kelly Blue Book says there are three main things that contribute to high resale value:
  • wide appeal
  • well maintained
  • luxury items

Sound familiar? The same applies to homes. A freshly painted and carpeted home in inviting neutral tones appeals to most buyers. In addition, a well maintained and cared for home is apparent to most buyers. Last, luxury items and upgrades such as wood floors, stainless steel appliances, and granite countertops are things buyers have on their wish list.

Even if you aren't selling right now, keep these things in mind when you are doing repairs and upgrading your home.

This is why I feel that "staging" a home can be a very valuble thing to do. If a home looks and even smells inviting, it will definately be more appealing to a potential buyer.

Great post!!
