Millennials are purchasing real estate in some parts of California faster than it can be listed. Older buyers are relocating to other places. Older purchasers may be ideal for purchasing a smaller house or apartment, and there are a few improvements you may make to pique their interest. If you want more advice on how to sell your house, look them over and then call Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices at (310) 373-0021.
Improve your laundry room’s accessibility
Most buyers of homes would prefer not to do their washing on the stairs, but older buyers in particular insist that this is necessary. According to a survey, 68 percent of homebuyers with intermediate incomes and 69 percent of those with high incomes preferred having the laundry area on the main floor rather than in the basement or garage.
Larger laundry rooms, which double as drop-off areas for coats, purses, and other accessories, are becoming more common in newer homes. To make access even simpler, some houses feature a laundry room right next to the master suite.
Create a walk-in shower out of your shower
A shower stall and a tub should both be present in the master bathroom, according to more than three out of four respondents with moderate incomes. Elderly people, on the other hand, are comfortable with taking a simple shower. In general, elderly persons do not want to (or are unable to) enter and exit a bathtub. They can enter more easily if there is only a shower stall. Install grip bars and a molded seat to add interest.
Add a smart thermostat to your home
While the perception about older buyer is that they do not like technology, the truth is that cell phones and computers have been used every day by most people long enough that today’s seniors are more tech-savvy than those just a few years ago. Installing a home thermostat allows people stay cold or warm just as they want to, but without wasting money.
For seniors who are concerned about their ongoing home maintenance bills, especially their utility rates, this can be a crucial addition. The thought that their heating and cooling expenditures would vary dramatically throughout the year for seniors living on limited incomes is reason enough for them to think twice about purchasing a property.
These are just a few methods you may use to attract older buyers to your house. These elements can also attract buyers of various ages. We strongly advise you to call Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices at (310) 373-0021 for assistance if you have any questions regarding your best options for purchasing or selling a home.
