When buying a home in North Texas, considering resale value isn't typically what's on a home buyers mind. However, many home buyers forget to consider resale
value when they buy, and they only consider whether the house meets their needs
at that moment. This can come back to haunt them years later when they are
struggling to sell the home for a good price.
It might seem odd to be thinking about selling a
home that you don’t even own yet. However, chances are good that you will need
to sell the home at some point, so you will want to own a property that will
increase in value and will appeal to a wide range of buyers.
Choose The Best
Location The old real estate cliché goes that you should look
for “location, location, location” but it’s absolutely true. You can change a
lot of things about a home, but its location is not one of them. If you want to
be sure of a good resale value, look for
a neighborhood that has been popular for quite some time and has a lot to
offer. Or, look for a location that is shifting from residential to commercial
and you might find that the house has an increase in value later.
Features To AvoidThere are certain home features that are considered
‘outdated’ and can make a home more difficult to sell. For example, one
bathroom houses do not usually sell as easily or for as much as properties with
two or more bathrooms. Also, outdated bathrooms and kitchen fixtures can be a
negative. It is possible to change these negative features by renovating, but you have to factor the
extra costs of this into the cost of the home and how much your changes will
increase the home value.
Also, don’t forget to look at the outside features
of the property as well. Pay attention to the shape and the size of the lot. It
should be level and rectangle, as odd shaped lots can be harder to resell.
