Sell Faster with These KEY Features

The current housing market in Central Oregon is very busy! If you have been paying attention to the Real Estate reports, you know there is low inventory and high buyer interest, which makes for a strong sellers market. That said, there are a handful of things you can do to put your best foot forward and sell quickly in this healthy market!

Here are a few Key Features we have found to attract more buyers more quickly:

  1. Hardwood Floors: In most cases they provide a cleaner and classier look, and who doesn’t want that?

  2. Granite or Quartz Countertops: Solid surface is still king, and kitchen’s are still our gathering place.

  3. Fireplace: Make sure it has a modern vibe. Steer clear of dated metal or tile, and instead consider adding built-ins or an updated mantel.

  4. Energy Efficiency: We all want lower energy bills, so if you can push this feature, it will greatly help your listing appeal.

  5. Patio or deck: Take the time to sand and repaint/restain – this goes a long way in Central Oregon. We are all trying to spend time outside and we want buyers to picture themselves grilling on your deck.

  6. Garage or storage space: You can never have enough! Add a few spaces in your garage, and at the very least, organize the spaces you do have. If your home looks cluttered, buyers will assume you have a storage issue.

  7. Stainless Steel Appliances: Clean, classy, and current – you can’t go wrong with stainless!

  8. Bathtub, either freestanding or soaking: with the busyness of modern culture, we all love the idea of home being a place we can escape to and get some much needed R&R. Buyers will often look for this in the form of a bathtub.

  9. Updated kitchen and bath: even if it’s just the counters or light fixtures, money spent here is rarely wasted.

  10. Laundry Room: maximize your space with wall storage. Avoid clutter – think light and bright.

  11. Low maintenance landscaping: the idea of a “park-like” backyard is appealing to most of us, but buying a beautiful home with a full-time landscaping job attached is not realistic for most of us. Simple and low maintenance is more what the busy, current buyer is looking for.

  12. Central Heating + Cooling: We like to say that Central Oregon doesn’t need AC, and for most of the year, that may be true, but these buyers are coming from all over – and most of them are used to AC, so it should be a serious consideration for you

As always, every home, seller, and month of our selling season is different. If you want a professional opinion – no pressure, no obligation – give us a call, we are happy to help.

You deserve to love where you love, we will help get you there. 541-312-9449
