If you’ve had your house on the market for a while but have had trouble getting interested buyers, there could be many factors. The good news is that there are
some simple steps to help you change that. Here are a few common reasons why your home could be warding off potential buyers:
Garage or bedroom transformed into something else – If you have altered any rooms or your garage such as an office or an extra living area, it may be a negative for buyers, especially if you have installed any built-in furniture. Buyers want to see their own life in the space, and altered parts of the house may prohibit them the flexibility to make it their own.
Hardwood floors under the carpet – There’s no reason you should be hiding beautiful hardwood flooring with carpet. Hardwood is cleaner looking, aesthetically pleasing, and better for those with allergies. A buyer can always add carpet if needed.
Extreme light fixtures or décor – Showing your own personality in your home is great, but if you’re trying to sell, it’s best to showcase a “blank canvas” for buyers. So those huge over-the-top lighting fixtures, kids’ room murals, or quirky wall pieces should be removed.
Outdated appliances – Sometimes, replacing that “retro” stove (as much as you love it) may be all you need to make over your kitchen and bring it into the 21st century. Buyers often date the entire home based on its appliances, so this could help greatly.
