Common Home Factors That Can Make or Break a Sale

If you've decided that it's time to upgrade to a different home or move to a new town, you'll likely need to sell your property. However, you shouldn't just put it on the market and hope for the best return. Rather, you should understand some of the main factors that can make or break the sale of your home. Here are several of them:


One of the most desirable rooms in any house is the kitchen. The kitchen is where most of your expensive appliances are going to be housed, and it's where you're going to be spending a lot of your time. When putting a house on the market, it's best to update the existing appliances. You should consider taking some time to update the lighting and countertops to provide an updated, sleeker look.


When the time comes for you to sell your home, your landscaping can impact the sale price of your home. You could have a home interior that's thoughtful and full of the latest technology. However, if the exterior of your home does not complement the interior, most people won't even go any further. Most people that are looking for a home are just seeing photos of the exterior of your home before they click to look at the interior. For this reason, it's essential to have quality landscaping.

Old Garage Doors

Most buyers are not looking for a house that needs updating. Rather, they're looking for a new or recently renovated home that they can move into immediately. If potential buyers pull into your driveway, the biggest draw will likely be your garage doors. If they're old and dented, it can come across as decreasing the value of your home. By having your garage door either replaced or painted to look newer, homebuyers will perceive your house as having a higher value.

Old Outlets and Switches

Owning old toggle-style light switches and yellowing outlet covers will make your home seem dated. To change this perception, all it takes is a small investment in some newer soft touch light switches and outlets that have USB ports included. This will help enhance the value of your home tremendously in the eyes of the homebuyer.

When you're getting ready to put your home on the market, you want to do everything possible to get the most value out of your home. By updating a couple of key components, buyers will perceive your house as having a higher value.
