What do home buyers want in 2023? And what should we add to the list that YOU as a home buyer are looking for?
I did some research on the good ole inter web and along with my own of showing buyers and these are a few hot items!
❶ 𝐋𝐀𝐔𝐍𝐃𝐑𝐘 𝐑𝐎𝐎𝐌
If your washer and dryer sit alone in the corner of your unfinished basement, it’s time for an upgrade–or at least a rearrangement.
Especially here in the Kootenay’s with all the boats, quads, snowmobiles, and outdoor gear we collect… a garage can add huge value! And, if you’ve got some extra room in your garage, consider adding cabinets and shelving to transform your empty corner into a workman’s paradise. Buyers want reimagined spaces that serve more purpose than a conventional.
❸ 𝐅𝐔𝐍𝐂𝐓𝐈𝐎𝐍𝐀𝐋 & 𝐎𝐏𝐄𝐍 𝐊𝐈𝐓𝐂𝐇𝐄𝐍
The kitchen… the the most scrutinized place as potential buyers tour a home. They put a lot of focus on the kitchen and its features and functions. Not only do they want it to be updated, but 81% of buyers want a double sink and a walk-in pantry, while 77% want a central island. If walls separate your kitchen from your living space, get the sledgehammer out!
❸ 𝐇𝐎𝐌𝐄 𝐎𝐅𝐅𝐈𝐂𝐄
Since the “you know what” hit us, more people are working from home — and loving it! If you don’t currently have a room that’s designated as the office, consider turning a spare bedroom into an office when you show your home. Or even a simple addition of a desk and office chair to an unused space could have potential buyers racing to sign on the dotted line.
