Not all Wake County homes are created equal. When it comes time to sell, there are certain features that determine whether a home is going to get a good price or not.
As a buyer, it’s important to also take the time to consider what the resale value on your home is likely to be.
Thus, today I’m going to share with you 5 features that are sure to give you a quality resale value for your home.
Make Sure Your Next Wake County Home Has These Features
The most important thing to consider when buying a home is its location.
It’s likely you’ve heard that old adage that real estate is all about location, location, location. And it’s true!
You want a home in Wake County that is located near plenty of attractive amenities and as far away from potential nuisances as possible.
But after location, what else should you look for in a Wake County home? Here are the top five features:
More than 2 bedrooms. You want to have a home that appeals to a variety of different home buyers, from singles to growing families. This increases your buyer pool, which increases you chances of finding an interested and qualified buyer.
More than 1 bathroom. Home buyers are willing to buy one-bath homes but they’re likely to offer much lower prices for them. If you want a good return on your investment, get a home that offers more than one bathroom.
Ample storage space. People care about this more than you might think. They’re looking for homes where they can store all of their junk, even if they don’t plan to use that stuff anytime soon.
Garage. This is especially true if you live away from a city center because that means that you’re probably going to be using a car as your primary transportation. Thus, having a garage makes for a more appealing resale because buyers will know they’ll have a place to store their car. And don’t forget, two spots is better than just one.
Modern Updates. You may have kept your 15-year-old home in tip-top condition all of these years but if you haven’t invested anything in updating your home, home buyers are certainly going to notice. So enhance your home’s resale value by remodeling the kitchen or bathroom. Buyers will be looking for more energy-efficient designs as well as the latest and greatest in fixtures.
