Top Garden Grove Realtor, Frank Abbadessa, shares how to sell for more – If you’ve been thinking of selling your home, I get it…there are quite a few Realtors and agents to choose from, as well as the option to sell your home yourself. That said, I can’t stress enough the importance of working with a Realtor, as myself, who has the knowledge, experience, and resources to present your home in its greatest light to the greatest number of targeted buyers, to receive the greatest return.

Top Garden Grove RealtorSelling a home is more than snapping some pics with your iPhone and putting them on flyers and/or online.

Did you know over 92% of home buyers use digital content during their home search?

An expert, as myself, not only understands the power of visual marketing, but they know how to apply it. Take this home I worked on, for instance. Although the above “BEFORE” pic could have been posted for my clients sale’s campaign, I KNEW that by making some modifications and staging it properly, I can get my client much more than originally expected.

Yes…upgrades can boost your home’s price and help you sell your home faster; however, not all renovations have an equal impact on what your home is worth. Accordingly, to maximize your return on investment, you need to know to what degree you can improve your home to maximize its payoff. Quite frankly, it’s a balancing act, considering the home improvement itself , the property as a whole, location, and other factors. Generally speaking, if you could only remodel one room, you’d probably want to focus on the kitchen.

The kitchen is the heart of the home and one of the most influential rooms on a buyer and their house hunting considerations. In fact, a recent study reports that…

Millennial homebuyers say the kitchen “is the most important room in the house.”

Reason being, homebuyers don’t decide on the home they want based on their current lifestyle. Rather, they decide on a home based on an idealized version of themselves. They decide on a property based on how it can influence and leverage their ability to form healthy new habits. An updated kitchen, therefore, can help them envision themselves preparing nice meals, sharing the task as a social activity, and using it to entertain family and friends. As such, improving your kitchen when selling your home can pay off.

In fact, according to the California Association of Realtors, you can potentially recoup 120%+ of a kitchen remodel, so long as you do not go overboard. Which is good news, because profitable remodels don’t require huge investments. In fact, budget-friendly updates offering great aesthetic impression, strategically is the best way to go as it calls for a small investment and brings in a large return. Studies further show that most millennials seek out open kitchens connecting to the living and dining rooms for casual entertaining. They also prefer stainless steel appliances, lots of counter space, and plenty of storage to keep countertops clean and maintain a minimalist space. As best described, they want an “Instagram Ready” kitchen.

Moreover, painting your home’s interior, updating the flooring, taking the curb appeal up a notch, and if possible, adding additional living space have all shown to be smarter updates. The key is to look for updates that will pay off at the end. As a Top Garden Grove Realtor, I can help you uncover which updates will pay off. Again,  feel free to call/text me at 562-754-2099.
