The key fundamentals to creating buyer appeal are
different with each property depending on the market, its location and

home. It may be about creating a lifestyle, dealing with repairs and
making the house appealing to the majority of potential buyers for the
would be buyers may mean leaving the old bathroom suite in and
using the budget you have to see to repairs, re-decorate
scuffed paintwork and add a few stylish accessories to create wow
factor and buyer appeal. The expensive bathroom suite and tiling which
you would have chosen may be the deal breaker because the buyer
doesn't like it. However knowing it looks brand new they assume the
property price will cover your cost of replacing it and they won't
want to pay that only to rip the bathroom suite out and start again.
If you are
guessing at who might buy your property because it may attract a wide
age range, couples or families, retired or professionals then donít
make expensive choices that wont change easily.
