Here are three things that every buyer wants to see in a home in 2022.
If you’re looking to sell your home in this market, it pays to know what buyers are looking for. We’ve been selling a home every 48 hours, so here are a few trends we’ve noticed:
The No. 1 thing buyers want is updates. We’ve tested time and time again, and a home that’s larger and less updated will sell for less than a home that’s more updated and a little bit smaller. Today’s buyers don’t have as much cash on hand to do the upgrades, so they want them to already be done.
“If a seller prices fairly, they’ll sell for more than if they would have overpriced.”
Buyers want to see amazing photography. The reality is that people start their home searches online. The key with photography is getting them to stop scrolling and get excited about what they see through the camera lens. Make sure the agent you hire invests in professional photography. Our team uses professional photography, videography, and staging to help properties sell.
Finally, homebuyers in 2022 are looking for accurate pricing. We’re still in a strong seller’s market, so it can be tempting to increase your price and see if it will sell. However, buyers are looking for fair pricing based on your home’s condition and the market’s health. If a seller prices fairly, they’ll get more money than they would if they overpriced their home from the start.
