Time and Date May 12th, 2014 User by House4cashbuyers Comments No Comments

With the improving job market and lower interest on home loans, tons of young couples are looking to purchase their first homes!!! This fact is great news if you are looking to sell your house, but you need to be aware of what this new generation values in a future home as times are different. We have listed 9 ways you can prepare your old home to attract young potential home buyer’s!

 

1. Use Daring Colors

 
Many studies have shown that young buyers like to see brighter, bolder colors as opposed to the more traditional neutral colors, that used to be standard way, when preparing a home for sale. This generation grew up watching shows like Trading Spaces, Extreme Makeover, and HGTV so they often expect to live in the same type of homes that they see on television, and bold walls can produce that effect without the high cost.

 
2. Rename Rooms

 
Dining and living rooms used merely for holidays aren’t appealing to young buyers anymore; they want to picture themselves and their guests making use of every room. If your home has dens and dining rooms, rename them home offices or extra bedrooms, and expound on which rooms would be best fit for entertaining guests.

 
3. Advertize Public Transportation

 
In your advertisements include which bus lines and different modes of public transportation are near your home, walkability is a big selling point for young potential home buyers.

 
4. Advertize Businesses in the Area

 
Younger generations are fast paced and are always on the go, so, they want to live near where they want and need to be. Amenities and square footage are great aspects but having your home be minutes from grocery stores, coffee shops, restaurants, and boutiques can be just as inviting!!!

 
5. Hardwood those Floors

 
Carpeting is often seen as dated and dirty and many young home owners prefer hardwood floors. Reveal and clean up the wooden floor beneath your carpet if it is achievable.

 
6. Update the Kitchen

 
The kitchen has always been seen as the heart of a home, and younger buyers appreciate kitchens like never before. A modern kitchen is usually on the top of the checklist for young buyers when house hunting. If it is in your budget, consider replacing countertops and updating appliances. This will increase the value of your property so you will get your money back and maybe more with the sale of the home.

 
7. Update the Bathroom

 
Bathrooms are also at the top of the checklist for young buyers when house hunting. You can modernize your bathroom by changing the mirror, sink or faucet, painting the cabinets, and changing the knobs. Staging the bathroom can also create a modern look and feel!

 
8. Sow a Garden

 
Gardening is a cherished practice to younger generations in spite of the fact that most of them have never planted a tomato plant themselves. They do however want to be inspired and seeing a section in the back or front yard can help them envision themselves living in your home.

 
9. Revise Technology

 
Wifi is the way of the world and any young buyers will want to know that the home is able to meet their technological needs. Confirm that your home is prepared with basic digital capabilities by contacting your local utility companies to verify if Internet is available in your area.
