Destin home buyers [http://www.destinrealestatesales.com/idx/search.html?search_submit=true&search_city%5B%5D=DESTIN&idx=detached-single-family&minimum_bedrooms=&minimum_bathrooms=&minimum_price=&maximum_price=]
may be drawn to a particular neighborhood by its proximity to their workplace,
the nearness of favorite leisure activities, excellent school systems,
convenient shopping, exemplary community services, an extensive bike path and
park system, or any number of features. But a community’s “vibe” and the “look”
of a particular neighborhood also play a significant role in home-buying
decisions. When they start house hunting, experienced Destin Realtors will tell
you that most people have a mental image of the type of neighborhood they want
to live in and the style of home they want to buy. People shopping for homes in
Destin or South Walton tend to gravitate to communities and neighborhoods that
best match their personal vision. A home that doesn’t fit the neighborhood
profile, a home that is unique in size or architectural style will be harder to
sell. This doesn’t mean that a home that is significantly different from its
neighbors cannot be sold; it simply means that its sale will require the expertise
of an astute and experienced Destin Realtor [http://www.gulfcoastrealestatesales.com/about.php].
When marketed and shown by an expert Gulf Coast real estate agent, a home’s
uniqueness can actually be turned into a positive selling point.
As we noted in our previous post, there are a number of
features that can make a unique home more difficult to sell:
Décor. Home buyers are attracted to homes that are painted in
soft neutrals and “move-in ready.” You may love the dramatic flair of bold
colors, but home buyers will look at your pumpkin-colored walls and only
see the time and expense required to repaint.
Standard features. Homes that lack features that are standard other
neighborhood homes are at a disadvantage. If most other homes in the area have two
bathrooms or an eat-in kitchen or a formal dining room and your home does not,
it will be less desirable to buyers.
