Buying a home with good resale value:

Not all homes are created equally unfortunately. If you are in the market to buy a home, there are many different things you will want to consider when you are ready to make a purchase. Have a REALTOR® assist you and point out the small things that may have big impact when you decide to re-sell your home.

There are numerous factors that can and will affect the resale value of your home, most notably the market. However, there are a few steady indicators of what increases the desirability of some homes vs. others for resale value. See below for a few of the strongest and most important factors to consider when buying a home with resale value:

  • Location, Location, Location: You have heard it before, and now again, but location is one of the most important dictators of what homes sell and for what type of dollar. Choosing a home in a good location should have a huge impact on the resale value of your home.
  • Number of Rooms: Typically a home should have more than 2 bedrooms to increase resale value. Even if it is a couple buying your home, they will most likely want an extra room for an office etc…
  • Number of Bathrooms: More than one bathroom is a must for top-dollar.
  • Storage & Closets: Having adequate closet and storage space helps to attract a broader range of potential buyers. These days, this is a big attraction.
  • Layout: Current trends put open, bright spaces at the top of the list. Spaces that are dark and closed-in are often off putting to potential buyers.
  • Updates: Upgrades and updates are another indicator of resale value. Even small changes can have a huge impact on the resale value of your home.

When you start searching for a home, consider not only how the home will suit your current needs, but also how it will suit others when your time comes to put it on the market again.
