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.

𝐐: What does title has registered mean?
𝐀: On the day before or of the possession date is also the completion date. That’s when the money transfers and the title goes into the new buyers name. That means, the sale has officially completed and everyone is happy!
