5 Unique Features that Can Help You Sell Your Lexington Home!

Lexington MA is a great place to live for a variety of reasons. If you’re a history buff, you’ll enjoy the rich history Lexington has to offer. If you enjoy a close knit community; you’ll soak in the year round events that Lexington hosts. Beautiful homes in great neighborhoods are ideal for those who are looking for a great place to raise a family. And, while I hope that those who choose to make Lexington their home stay for good, I know that life happens. Job transfers, family changes and other various circumstances can produce the need to sell your Lexington home.

It can be a little intimidating to think of selling your home knowing that the current Lexington Real Estate market is in favor of buyers. However, there are some tricks of the trade that can help you in making your home more attractive to Lexington buyers! Below are 5 unique features that can help you sell your Lexington home.

1. A Backyard Oasis- Creating a backyard oasis for your Lexington home can be a huge selling point to buyers. They will see this as one less project that they will have to do themselves and will easily visualize themselves relaxing in this scenic space. Be sure to use plants and items that are easy to maintain, otherwise buyers may be scared off by the amount of upkeep. If you’ve already created this space with delicate plants and flowers, just be sure to recommend a good local nursery where the buyers can turn to for questions, or feel free to make up a small “instruction manual” for maintaining the beautiful oasis you’ve created.

2. A Perfect Playroom- Oftentimes when looking at homes, one of the first things parents will look at is space for their children to play. If there isn’t a designated play area, some buyers might get the feeling that their children will be able to let loose. Whether you have an entire room that can be offered as a play area or just a portion of the lower level; make sure to enhance it with toys or décor to let buyers know it’s a play space. Keep it neat and free from damage such as crayon marks on the wall if it’s currently being used by your children. If, however, you’re in a neighborhood that appeals more to mature buyers or young, single professionals; a home office can have the same sense of appeal.

3. Unique Architecture- If your home boasts architecture that is unusual or unique to Lexington or your Lexington neighborhood, be sure to point it out! Whether it’s beautiful archways throughout the home, custom built-ins, a turret or even a classic “servants’ staircase”; your homes’ story can carry a lot of weight with buyers who want to feel part of Lexington’s rich history or unique character.

4. Bathroom Blisss- It’s no surprise that a beautifully updated bathroom with all the amenities one could want is a large bonus to Lexington buyers. Putting money towards creating a spa-inspired master bathroom can pay be a huge payoff in the sale of your Lexington home. Don’t have a lot of money to spend updating? Try changing out the vanity with a new style or update lighting fixtures and faucets. Anything you can do to update your bathroom will be well worth it!

5. Green Features- It’s apparent that the more we learn about our earth, the more people want to “go green.” If you already have green features in your home; highlight them! If not, you can start making your home green by using LED lightbulbs, replacing old windows with high performance ones, or trade out old appliances with new, energy efficient options.

I hope these tips are helpful to you as you begin thinking about selling your Lexington home! Of course, if you need help in any way; let me know!
