With more Metro DC homebuyers in the local real estate market this summer, one thing is for certain— buyers are looking for home features that their current homes do not already supply. Popular selling points like extra storage, organization, a great location, outdoor space, low-energy features, and low maintenance will stand out to those looking to purchase a home in Washington DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia.
If you’re a DC Metro home seller, it’s important to highlight your home’s best features, no matter the reasons you’re moving on. Don’t take your current home for granted and you could just set the stage for a home sale.
For many homebuyers in the Washington DC area real estate market right now, especially those first-time homebuyers who are dealing with little space, storage is a big plus. Despite what you think of your home—maybe you have a standard basement or garage that you use as storage—a first-time homebuyer may think they’ve hit the jackpot. Built-in storage in the kitchen? Large, extra closets? Be sure to highlight these selling points to buyers!
In DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia real estate, location is key. But put yourself in a homebuyer’s shoes. Keep in mind that not everyone may be familiar with your neighborhood, they may not know the local attractions around you or the great schools that are across the street. Tell them! Your pointing these out, or rather your expert real estate agent, could just push the home to the top of their list.
Low Energy, Low Maintenance
When moving to a new home, many buyers will be looking for low upkeep and especially low-cost, low-energy appliances and features. As a home is the biggest purchase one will make, any features in place that can help keep costs down will appeal to buyers. Do you have a new, energy-efficient water heater? Recently replaced insulation? Buyers will be glad to know!
