Home sales are on the rise – and that includes luxury homes. That means it’s a great time to sell your luxury home in Chattanooga. To sell quickly, your home needs certain amenities that attract luxury home buyers. They’re often particular and know what they want.
Let’s take a look at what luxury home buyers are really looking for during their home search.
1. More outdoors
Everyone likes to spend time outside – in perfect setting. Luxury home buyers are no exception. They’re looking for or pools in natural settings, lush gardens to feast their eyes on, and outside entertainment areas complete with WiFi and flat screen TVs.
One of the most sought-after additions is an outdoor kitchen to host get-togethers. What fun is a pool party if you have to go indoors to eat? If your home has an outdoor oasis, you’ll get plenty of showings, fast.
Attract luxury home buyers with an outdoor living room. It should have comfy furniture and a fire pit or outdoor fireplace. Include plenty of tables for drinks and snacks, and a weatherproof flat-screen TV for football season.
Anyone can buy a Nest thermostat. Luxury buyers are looking for more than that. They want a kitchen full of smart devices. Touch-operation faucets, refrigerators that tell them when they’re low on groceries, and ovens that preheat themselves automatically are in vogue.
Head out to the living room – where you’re greeted by whole-home surround sound from an integrated audio system. Say the word (from any room) and hear just what you want.
With over three-fourths of luxury home buyers looking for smart tech in their new home, you’re wise to install those items now. You’ll likely speed your sale.
3. Wine seller
Forget the wine cellar. It’s cold down there and no one wants to stay for a wine tasting.Rather than hauling all their wine up to the dining room for a tasting with friends, luxury home buyers want a tasting room next to the wine cellar itself. The comfort of a den, the ambiance of a fancy restaurant, and the tastes of California, Italy, and Argentina. What more could the discriminating home buyer ask for?
Many luxury home bathrooms have sunken, jetted tubs. They used to be all the rage. Now, however, you’ll attract luxury home buyers more easily with a decked-out shower.
Think multiple shower heads, custom tile and glass, sauna-type benches, and luxurious stone features. How about a waterfall? Add that to your bathroom and affluent buyers will have a hard time walking away.
Since few actually take time for a bath, consider even taking out the tub altogether. You’ll have more room for the shower tour de force – and greater likelihood of a quick sale.
Make these 4 changes (or any of them, really) and you’ll be setting your home sale up for success. Luxury buyers tend to have specific desires. And when they see what they like, they act. Give them a great first impression.
