Sometimes homes present a challenge to both listing and selling agents because of the custom design of the house and/or the way the Sellers have chosen to use/furnish it. It is not practical or economical to change a room to meet what "might make the expectations" of buyers. We recently had an agent who critiqued the layout of the house suggesting furnishings and changes that would be a healthy five figure expense to the seller....hmmmm....not happening.
The responsibility for Imagination is HUGE.
- When there is a room that is used as a study/office but has a closet, it could be another bedroom or a guest room.
-Many times we have had rooms converted to a desirable first floor laundry especially when plumbing is located nearby.
- Addition of a hot tub; creation of an "outside room" for some people adds a recreational dimension to the home - find out the plumbing expense for this added feature.
-Conversion of a natural fireplace to a gas fireplace - Often not a huge expense since it is likely gas is already used for heating.
-Dining rooms may not be the used often enough to justify the space; remove the chandelier - now it is s study/office, playroom....
-"Her Room" - we hear a lot about a man cave, that room that could be used differently might become HER room.....library, craft, scrapbook, study, sanctuary
Challenge yourself as a listing agent....be Creative as a selling agent...making a house home sweet home for many different lifestyles is our goal.....put your best thoughts forward in helping this become reality so that everyone lives happily ever after.
