Now is the ideal time for those who have been longing for a larger space to list their homes and take the leap to a bigger abode. For buyers thinking of preparing their homes to sell, there are many improvements that can be made to appeal to those searching for a new home during the pandemic. Here are a few:

Outdoor space – with so many Americans spending more time at home, a nice outdoor living space can help relieve a case of cabin fever! Adding an outdoor fire pit or some heaters can even make the space useable for the winter in many climates.

Office space – homeowners need a dedicated office space as many continue to work from home on a daily basis. Sellers should consider staging a room in their home as an office space to appeal to buyers.

Home gym – many people are choosing to stay away from the gym during the pandemic and using their homes as a workout space. It is a good idea to stage a room or a corner of a room as a space where buyers can see themselves doing future home workouts.

In-law suite – as multi-generational households become more popular, buyers are looking for a space that will suit their living situations. Before listing, spruce up in-law suites, guest homes and garage apartments to make them stand out to buyers.
