5 Extras That Buyers Love

Want to add some “wow” next time your house is shown?  Here are a few ideas that buyers love!

  1. Water Features – For those of you who have a pool with a water feature, it is nice to have it running while your house is being shown.  This applies to fountains too!
  2. Fresh Flowers – It doesn’t have to be fancy. Even a simple bowl of water with fresh cut magnolias from your backyard can do the trick.  It adds freshness and a draw to a room.  And if the flowers have a nice scent, BONUS!
  3. Music – If you have a sound system with speakers in various rooms throughout your home or have outdoor speakers for your patio area, have them playing.  Just go light and soothing on the music.
  4. Good Aroma – It is not always easy to do this for a showing. But if you are planning to have an open house, this one is a nice idea.  Bake something as simple as a pie or bread or anything else that has a good fragrance. It has a two fold benefit – a great addition to your next meal for you and a wonderful aroma for perspective buyers coming in to see your house.
  5. Speciality Item –  Think of anything that is special to your home that you’ve added as an upgrade. It can be the sliding glass doors that open all the way into your wall; or you have a remote control for your gas fireplace; or perhaps you have a retractable movie screen.  First, make sure your feature works properly. Second, demonstrate for your agent how it works.
