Did a Door Knob Ever Sell a House?
Sellers are always sure that the tiniest detail in their house is going to help sell the property. Sellers are proudly showing off drawer pulls, ceiling fans, a blooming bush or other details of special attention. Think about it, have you ever purchased a house because of the decorative shelf in a bedroom? Probably not.
Details help impress potential buyers, not always in a good way. What if the buyer doesn’t want to do yard work? That blooming rose bush isn’t going to impress them at all. And all you are telling your potential buyers is that you are overly attached to the property. And your agent isn’t impressed either.
The bottom line is the bottom line. Door knobs, ceiling fans, drawer pulls and fancy shelves might help attach attention to the property but they aren’t going to make it sell any faster and guest what? These details aren’t going to make the house appraise higher.
Advice to sellers: Keep the house clean down to the corners of every room and up to the top of the vaulted ceilings. Change out the furnace filters, clean the gutters and maintain the property.
One of my first employing brokers use to tell me that there is a buyer for every house. But let’s face it patience is required. Buyers have A LOT more to choice from right now and money is tight.
