What home buyers are looking for in a new home is reflective of the current real estate market and the overall state of the economy. Home sellers should be aware of these current market trends so that they can highlight those features already existing in their home or, when possible and cost-effective, to do some updating that will include some of those sought after wish list items. So what are today’s home buyers looking for in a new home? According to a recent survey by the National Association of Home Builders, these are what home buyers seem to want most:

1. Energy Efficiency.
Energy-star rated appliances, energy-star rated windows, and ceiling fans topped their list. Seeking to lower their overall energy costs, today’s cost-conscious buyers are no longer attracted to the two-story foyer and living spaces that were once so popular.

2. Organization.
Areas such as laundry rooms, linen closets in the bathroom, garage space with storage systems, and walk-in pantries in the kitchen provide accessible storage and easy organization for today’s home buyers.

3. Resale Value.
Today’s home buyers are looking for high end amenities and are willing to have a smaller space to get them. Double sinks in the kitchen, both a tub and stall shower in the bath, french doors rather than standard doors, and home technology features including home security systems and central controls for entertainment and utilities.

If you are preparing your Brevard home to be put on the market for sale, you will be considering how to make improvements that will appeal to buyers. Bathrooms are one area where home buyers make decisions because it is one of the most used rooms in the house. Major bathroom renovations can consume large amounts of time and money, but every bathroom can use a little fix-up from time to time, even if you’re not selling your home. Even small changes can have a big impact so if you need to give your tired old bathroom a quick, budget friendly lift consider these renovations.

Change out the hardware in your bathroom. Consider new knobs for the cabinets, perhaps a new towel rod, and toilet paper holder. These small touches can add a new tone and feel to any bathroom, making sure they match well and coordinate with one another will make the room come together beautifully.

Invest in new bath faucets, it’s a great way to extenuate your style. Also, consider going green and investing in a faucet that helps lower your water usage while still giving the same flow pressure.

The National Association of Realtors reports that 2012 saw total home sales at their highest level in five years and the lowest housing supply since May of 2005. Signs continue to indicate an improving housing market, spurred by low interest rates, less inventory, and rising demand. Potential buyers who stayed on the sidelines during the recession are getting off the fence and back into the market as their financial ability and confidence grows. If you are thinking that now is the time to prepare your Western North Carolina home for a spring sale, decluttering and organizing your home is an essential step before you put it on the market. Although organizing and decluttering your home may seem like an overwhelming undertaking, it is doable. Use some of these tips to make the task at hand more manageable.

Look at individual rooms with a critical eye. What types of activities take place in this room? Is the function of each area of the room clearly defined?

In keeping with the function you’ve identified for the room, decide which items need to stay, what needs to be moved to a more appropriate area, and what things just simply need to go, so that potential buyers can easily see how this space is used.

Top 5 Essential Repairs Before Selling Your Home

How is storage currently used to maximize the function of your space? It is often necessary to get creative with how to arrange and organize things, however, every storage space needs a designated purpose. There are a lot of choices available for furniture that can double as a way to store items and storing things on the wall can save lots of valuable floor space.

Bookshelves that are stacked and overfull; surfaces and counters covered with things; cluttered and busy closets; all give the impression that you don’t have enough space or storage. In this case, less really is more. Keep bookshelves approximately 1/3 full, horizontal surface should have only three to four items on them, and closets should be cleared of unnecessary or unused items.

Determine which are the most essential pieces of furniture in the room. Perhaps some pieces will work better in another area of the house or some may need to be put into storage. Consider rearranging the furniture to open up the space and create an inviting flow in and around the room.
