Selling Your Overland Park Home? Is it Perfect for Entertaining?
Selling a home and selling a lifestyle in Overland Park, go hand in hand. At the end of each day, most people just want to relax and have fun! Life is stressful enough and the spring trend in homes for 2015 is to create that nurturing space that fulfills you, with the lifestyle you desire and that’s perfect for entertaining. And if you are selling a home this year, show the buyers an emotional connection and fun atmosphere that your house offers instead of boring things like square footage and a new roof.
According to an analysis performed by ZipRealty, around 2% or one out of every 64 houses on the market for sale are “perfect for entertaining.” The top five metro areas with listings including the phrase “perfect for entertaining” are Los Angeles, Denver, Dallas, Phoenix and Houston. The most common entertainment feature was the deck.
While we can’t compete with homes in L.A. that have outdoor kitchens and swim-up bars, what makes an Overland Park home “perfect for entertaining?” It’s evolved over time but in today’s Overland Park real estate market, buyers are looking for outdoor spaces to reflect more casual get-togethers. Having the kitchen or lower level walk out to an outdoor entertainment area is what most home owners want today – and typically those things will help a home sell faster and for more money. My current listing at 9205 W. 128th Street in Overland Park has a gorgeous deck that shows exactly how you can enjoy get togethers with friends and family.
So, whether it’s a blown out deck, party patio, fire pit area or enclosed porch, it’s all about having that spot dedicated to entertaining family and guests.
My sellers, Adrian and Ashley, had a terrific screened in porch on their house that they weren’t really using at all. When we listed their house for sale, I knew that was their money maker so I dressed it up with color and brought in some extra props to showcase the extended living space.
Their home sold in one day with multiple offers and for more than asking price.
If you’re selling your home in Overland Park, spruce up your outdoor space and show what life can be like living in your home. You’ll sweep the buyers off their feet and they will buy your Overland Park house for sale faster and for more money every time!
