What do you tell your buyers and sellers when they recite some of the industry’s most popular myths? REALTOR Magazine® now has some of the answers for you:
- Swap out bold colors for neutral colors. Even if a room sports a bold shade of paint, home owners don’t always have to grab a brush to change it up before listing. Sellers can tone down a strong color with a neutral counterpart, such as a calming rug or tranquil array of fresh greenery.
- Sellers can expect to recoup their investment in remodeling projects. It’s nearly impossible to get 100 percent of the money they put into a redo back when they sell. However, making the upgrades will appeal to buyers who want a move-in ready home, while also making the home more attractive, in general.
- Never buy the biggest house on the street. The largest house on a block or in a neighborhood often is the most expensive, which may affect its appraisal and make its price much higher than other homes in the same neighborhood on comparative analyses
