Peoria Homes Feature Resale Potential

Aug 17, 2007
If you are thinking of selling your home and buying a new one, you need to consider its appeal to future buyers. Once you have decided to sell your home, you will want to get out of it as quickly as possible. You definitely do not want a home languishing on the market.

Peoria is a prime community for homes with resale potential. It's an affordable area, attracting first-time buyers. They will focus on whether the home meets their criteria for selling in the future.

Buyers focus on home location, how up-to-date the home is, and how much work needs to go into it, not only to make it livable, but also future resale value.

Location

As for location, buyers consider whether a home is in a good school district, how safe the community is, and what the plans are for future growth. Many cities in the greater Phoenix area are expanding rapidly. When buyers look at your home, also, they'll want to check out what is going on around you: are there new construction projects, are parts of the town converting to commercial zoning.

Up-to-date Features

Even in older or historic homes, buyers want up-to-date features. For instance, older homes were built with a single bathroom, nowadays buyers expect there to be at least two bathrooms if not more.

Appliances, paint, flooring, and cabinets are all features that establish the tone date of the property. If the carpets are out-of-date colors or well-worn, the buyer will think the property looks tired. A little fresh paint can make a home look brighter and cleaner. Mismatched colored appliances make a home look like it's been thrown together with hand-me-downs.

Work Required

Many buyers look at a home that requires some repairs and see opportunity, a chance to put their own unique stamp on it. But other buyers see that a property requires too much work and too much money to make it into something they'd love. Some buyers easily overlook a few flaws, but major problems are a deterrent for almost anyone.

If you want your home to move quickly (so you can move quickly) take a good look at your home. Bring in a friend to help evaluate your home and make suggestions. When we live in our homes, we tend to overlook the smaller details, someone with a fresh eye can point out those features that need updating and repair.

Usually with minimum effort, you can make your home stand out among other homes for sale. Peoria is a great community and there are many buyers looking for the right resale property.
