Getting ready to list your Incline Village, NV real estate for sale? The best way to get started is to chat with a local Incline Village, NV realtor. Not only can we help you prepare and price, we can give you tips on staging so that buyers see your home in the best possible light. One area that has a lot of potential to impress a prospective buyer is creating more living space. Realtor.com reported from a recent survey that 66% of millennial buyers said more living space was their number 1 reason for purchasing a home. But this younger generation of buyers aren’t the only ones. This is such an important feature, especially in second resort markets. More living space means more room to spread out for guests or vacation renters. The first thing to keep in mind is to pick ONE purpose for the room. We know, dual purpose would seem like an appealing selling point, but buyers want to imagine their stuff in your home. If you have a bonus room that is being used for 3 different things (read: spare bed, office AND makeshift home gym), it can seem cluttered or overwhelming. When listing homes for sale in Incline Village, NV, you want a home to be clean and spacious. Pick one purpose that room is used for when listing. Need some inspiration? Check out these ideas.
Create a home fitness studio
The amount of people incorporating fitness into their daily routines has surged with yoga and meditation becoming a daily activity for so many. In an active mountain town like Lake Tahoe, having a zen space creates a calming feeling which most buyers respond quite well too. Add in some weights, mirrors (which can make a room feel bigger) and mats to create more purpose.
Get creative with some crafts
If you yourself are not into arts or crafts, there is truly no need to spend money on supplies and items you will never use just to create a room. However, for the crafty DIY-er, set up your sewing machine, your gift wrap station and art supplies. For young families, this type of room gives off the feeling that it is versatile and a great space for homework, playing or storing some of those odds and ends sent home from school. Just make sure the room isn’t cluttered or decorated with bright colors.
Set up an entertaining space
This can be a game room or a home theatre, or both. Setting up a space to relax and have fun with guests is a great selling point when listing homes for sale in Incline Village, NV. If you are new to owning Incline Village, NV real estate, your local Realtor will tell you that you will find yourself with a lot of guests. Having a space specifically for entertaining is a nice selling point.
Set up an office with lots of built ins
Buyers love extra storage. With so many folks working remotely, home offices are a major selling point. Built ins not only create storage but they allow for better organization. If you have the space and the ability, create a room that someone can imagine working productively in. Built ins can be costly and would need to be installed in a way that could allow for versatility in the event your buyer doesn’t have a need for a home office. Your Incline Village, NV realtor can advise on this.
Create a dream closet
While you don’t need to recreate a space seen on MTV’s Cribs with a revolving closet and spiral staircase, a beautiful large closet is a huge selling point. Built ins, a storage island, shoe cubbies and lots of racks and shelves for storing items can create a room that will appeal to most buyers.
Regardless of how you prepare the bonus space in your room, don’t forget to get rid of clutter and any personalization that appears over the top. Your Incline Village, NV realtor will help explain in further detail why these two tips are important. For more information on preparing your home for the market, feel free to give us a call. We would be happy to help.
