Home Buyer First Impressions, someone once said you never get a second chance at a first impression.
The same can be said for a Home Buyer First Impression.
It does not take long for a buyer to determine if the home is in good repair. If the layout of the home will be suitable. If the asking price is close or inflated.
Most of us know what is perceived value. What our head tells us something is worth to us. That may not mean a homes real value or price. Just what our first impression said to our brain.
If you see a home that has very little space because it is stuffed with more furniture than the room will hold. Your first impression is, the room is small. Conversely if your see a room with floor space and openness on the walls, your brain is told the room is larger. The rooms are exactly the same size.
A Home Buyer First Impressions can have a large impact on the perception of the rest of the home.
No wonder the phase “Home Buyer First Impressions” are everything. Sinks, bathrooms, closets all can impact a buyers thinking. Today we have more clothes, shoes more everything than years ago. Older homes typically have much smaller closets for this reason. Many homes in large cities are older and thus have small closets. Homeowners have made changes to these home in many cases by remodeling bedrooms, bathrooms and closets to be more in step with our lifestyles.
So as you can see clutter, to much furniture, closet overflowing all impact a buyers impression and your ability to sell your home. Seller have choices but so do buyers, many times the buyers choice is to keep looking!
