5 Instant Turn Offs Home Buyers HateMay 23rd, 2019
If you’re planning on selling your home soon, you want to get as much money out of your house as possible. The best way to maximize your return is by making your home as appealing as you can. If your home has any one of these five “turn offs,” don’t be surprised when buyers run away from your home!
Drastic paint colors. Sure, you love that neon pink bedroom—but will your buyers? To appeal to as many buyers as possible, switch to a neutral and warm palette throughout your home.
Wall-to-wall carpeting. Carpeting might have been popular in the 80s and 90s, but today’s buyers prefer hardwood flooring. If your carpet is hiding hardwood flooring, remove it! If you don’t have hardwood, hire a professional cleaner to remove any stains from your carpet and make it look as good as possible.
Faux crystal faucet handles. Nothing screams “my design taste is stuck in the 70s” like massive, gaudy acrylic faucet handles. Replacing them with chrome faucets will cost you around $300—and appeal to many more buyers.
Bathroom carpeting. Bathroom carpeting is a liability. It soaks up and retains moisture, quickly turning into a breeding ground for mold and bacteria if it isn’t cleaned and dried every day. If you have carpeting in your bathroom, remove it before you start showing your home to buyers.
A grimy tub. No one wants to buy a tub that’s covered in mold! If your bathtub hasn’t been getting the TLC it needs, call a company who can do your tub replacement in Philadelphia before you list your hours.
