Brand new Section I started this week and these posts will contain helpful information for buyers and sellers in the Middle Georgia area as well as Agents or anyone in Real Estate!
Since I have my shutter finger on the PULSE of Real Estate in Middle GA- I thought I’d start with these little SCOOP STATS!
1- Homes with Deep Yellow Family Rooms and Red Dining Rooms sell the slowest even if the house was completely updated. This is because people tend to only ‘see’ and remember those colored rooms when looking for their new home and even though they can paint another color easily, not everyone is able to imagine a room painted differently.
2- Homes with pale blues and pastels always sell the fastest. Actually faster than with one neutral color or painted just white. Blues in general bring more views to photos and more calls to view. People generally gravitate to blues, soft yellows, GRAYS and whites.
3- Homes with freshly painted very light grays in the kitchen sell the FASTEST. People love knowing they can move right in and make it theirs on this neutral palette.
4- Buttercream cabinets in kitchens seem ‘date’ homes, according to potential buyers. I have watched a nice home sit unsold with those cabinet colors, and be re-listed with only the cabinets painted gray or white and watched it sell in 24 hrs.
5- People LOVE to see new light fixtures. LOVE!! The more modern and elegant- the better!
6- WHITE LED lighting throughout a house can bring a faster sale than yellow lighting or lamps. It isn’t a guarantee but I see it happen A LOT. While it brightens it also gives a lighter happier feel when a person it out house hunting.
7- Younger buyers are more likely to buy ANY home that has been staged. I mean ANY. Buyers LOVE to see “what could be”. Staging is a HUGE Selling point. Staging plus Great Photography equals SOLD!
