In real estate we often talk about how it is all about LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION; and while that is still one of the major considerations for home buyers as a whole, there are still other important features that buyers are looking for and that sellers can easily supply.
Did you know that, according to kiplinger.com, the top feature that is looked for in a house is a Laundry Room? If your house doesn't currently have an indoor laundry room, you may consider trying to add one. Kiplinger suggests that a basement is usually the easiest place to add one. In Arizona homes, we typically have laundry rooms, or laundry closets inside, so this may not be a concern that applies to you.
Another feature that buyers look for is Exterior Lighting. According to this feature, 92% of all home buyer's "crave the curb appeal provided by spotlights, lamp posts and walkway lighting." Not only does exterior lighting give your home a dramatic look at appeal at night, it also increases the safety of your home. Consider updating the lighting on the exterior of your home. Walkway lights and spotlights that highlight features and plants in your yard are also exciting ways to add that special flair.
Rounding out the top 3 considerations of home buyers are energy efficient appliances. If your home is due for an update in appliances, don't skimp in the energy efficiency department. You may also want to consider adding additional insulation and replacing windows that have gone bad in order to improve the energy efficiency of your home.
Other areas that you may consider looking at would include: adding a patio, updating your flooring, garage storage, and an eat in kitchen area (if you don't already have it). There are many considerations when choosing updates to do to your property to prepare it for sale. Your best bet is always to consult with a knowledgeable real estate agent who can guide you in what is selling in your area in the current market. It can't hurt to ask and in all probability it could save you thousands of dollars!
