When you actively list your home for sale online or in print you allow yourself the opportunity to reach a large amount of potential home buyers. Your listing is your very first impression that you make of your home so you want to make sure the description of your property stands out among its competition. You will want to mark the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and whether the home has a garage or not as standard, but you can include other tidbits of information to make your listing more appealing. Here are things you should keep in mind when you list your home.
Does your property have a garden? Do you have mature trees on your land? Does your home come with landscape lights or a retaining wall? If so, you want to elude to the fact that your yard is special and unique. You can simply add "landscape extras," or "mature yard" to your listing to let potential homeowners know that your landscape is everything but basic.
If you have unique add-ons to your home, such as a sunroom, wraparound deck, or a hot tub gazebo, you want to directly list these perks. Many potential home buyers particularly look for homes that have been upgraded, and will seek out listings with non-typical features. You will already want to list any upgrades in your kitchen or bathroom to give your home appeal, and you can place add-ons right underneath them to really make your home stand out.
If your home has a name-brand carpet, real hardwood floors, a custom roof, or other fancy materials that you have enjoyed, you want to include these in your listing. While a new roof and upgraded carpeting is a typical home upgrade, the materials may not be and can make your home much more alluring to someone who doesn't want to have to do the install themselves. You don't need to be specific about the colors of high-end materials unless they are part of the actual allure, such as cherry wood flooring.
Is your home on a quiet, dead-end street? Do you live near a public school? Is there a bus stop just a few blocks away? Where you are located really matters, and if you enjoy a certain perks to where you live so will someone else. Don't hesitate to list your home's proximity to the nearest park or greenbelt to give your home even more appeal.
