What Buyers are NOT Looking for in a Home


When you are remodeling your home or getting ready to sell your home you have to think about not only what you want but what buyers may be looking for in a home.  Make improvements that are going to make you happy in the long run in your home if you plan of being there for many years but it pays to be smart about how you invest in your home.

If you are going to be living in your home for only a few years and spend tons of money putting in an outdoor kitchen or a Japanese style garden, chances are very high that you will not get dollar for dollar out of what you put in.  Some things buyers do want are remodeled kitchens, bathrooms, new paint, some landscaping and a clean, turn key home.  Spend your money on those areas if you are going to be selling your home in the near future.


Here is an idea of what Buyers are NOT looking for in a home:
