Individuals who are looking to sell their homes need to keep up on the latest trends and news regarding the real estate market. At the moment, buyers seem to be interested in homes that are 2,000 square feet, but most homes in the U.S. tend to be 40-years-old or older. Homes with this amount of age do not have the comforts that buyers are looking for.
Statistics show, that only a third of the homes listed for sell are 2,000 square feet or more. The remainder of the homes goes lower than 1,200 square feet. This is a big difference and is something buyers will not be willing to budge on when looking for a home.

Share renovation ideas that you have considered, but never got around to. Paint a picture for your buyers so that they can see a vision of their perfect home.
