Obviously, there are a lot of factors that go into making these types of decisions for buyers. As a seller, you may find presenting your house so that it's appealing to buyers a bit daunting. How do you make it appeal to everyone? How do you make sure the buyers know all the improvements you've made and all the things you love about the house?
There are many things you can do to make your house more appealing to a potential buyer: de-clutter, paint, re-arrange furniture, halve the number of clothes in your closet, brighten the rooms, landscape, buy stainless steel appliances, etc...
You'll want to prepare the house so that the future buyer can imagine themselves living there. This is why it's helpful to get a professional opinion when preparing to sell.
So what helps a buyer decide which house they will buy? The answer is usually their gut feeling. A buyer will know if the house is right for them within a few minutes of being in a house.
Once a buyer can imagine themselves living in the house, then they start asking questions about the house. This is the best time to provide all the details about updates, upgrades and other reasons to love the house.
