5 Tips to Successfully Sell Your Birdland Home to Younger Buyers

If you are considering selling your home for sale in Birdland Pleasanton CA to millennials, you must first discover what they truly want in a home. According to the National Association of Realtors, millennials account for 32% of real estate buyers. They have specific values and desired lifestyles. They also have definite criteria in choosing homes.

Read on for some tips on how to sell your home to the younger buyers.

1. Make sure your home has WiFi access

One helpful tip that can make your property desirable to millennials who are looking for Birdland Pleasanton CA homes for sale is making sure that your house is equipped with WiFi and has a good signal. Millennials have very demanding jobs and social lives and they constantly need to be online. If your home can’t get a good signal, you may install WiFi boosters. Remember that a faltering signal or lack thereof can be a deal breaker for this type of buyer.

2. Make sure your home is healthy for its inhabitants and guests

Nobody wants to live in a home that can potentially lead to serious health problems. This is very true for the more health-conscious millennials who prefer homes with improvements focused on health and well being. Make sure your home has good air quality, mold. Younger buyers prefer less driving and want more walkability. In fact, these buyers are foregoing their cars for bikes or their own two feet. They will surely appreciate homes that have a corner store and public transportation nearby. If your home’s location is not accessible to public transportation and does not have a good walking score, discuss with your trusted real estate agent how you can offset this negative point. Make sure your home has good air quality, mold and fungus free basements, and no VOC off-gassing from paint. Millennial homebuyers also choose wood flooring over carpet. This is because carpets can look dirty and can aggravate some people’s allergies.

3. Millennials want walkability

Younger buyers prefer less driving and want more walkability. In fact, these buyers are foregoing their cars for bikes or their own two feet. They will surely appreciate homes that have a corner store and public transportation nearby. If your home’s location is not accessible to public transportation and does not have a good walking score, discuss with your trusted real estate agent how you can offset this negative point.

4. Make sure you have online photos of your home

Most millennial home buyers looking for real estate for sale in Birdland start their search online. If you want to get their attention, you need to carefully consider how your property shows online. In real estate, photos make the first impression on potential buyers. Some buyers will not even consider buying a property if it doesn’t have photographs in the online listing. Get professional photography that will show your home in its best light. Otherwise, these buyers will never step foot in your door. Remember that the quality of listing photos and the expertise of the person taking them can have a big impact on home sales.

5. Make sure to employ proper home staging

Staging is a critical part of selling your home to millennials. Staging is a method of decorating where the goal is to showcase your home’s best assets. With proper staging, buyers feel at home the moment they walk through the door. On the other hand, without staging, it will be harder for the buyer to imagine what it could be like once they move in. Professional home staging helps meet buyer’ expectations.
