If you watch home shows, however, you may be terrified that your home won’t sell without granite counters and a master bathroom you could live in. Research shows, however, that buyers are a lot more practical than we are led to believe. The National Association of Realtors recently released there annual profile of buyers and sellers and the list is surprising, especially if you love those home shows like we do. On top item being considered by today’s buyer include location, both in convenience to their job as well as area conveniences and the quality of the neighborhood. This can work in any seller’s favor as these items vary from buyer to buyer. Affordability also matters so make sure you are priced where you need to be to attract lookers. If you are making upgrades, consider adding energy efficient appliances and perks, as that was also a top consideration.

Now, don’t get us wrong, a pretty kitchen and crown molding will always help a sale but making smart upgrades, and taking your real estate location into consideration, will always help you get the purchase price you’re after.
