New construction projects provide a great opportunity to learn about what the "Average" buyer is looking for in the market. From their kitchen to the yard, developers have spent a lot of time, energy and money figuring out what the average buyer at a certain price point is looking for in their next home.
If you go to their model unit, and all the walls are painted grey... you can bet that's the look most buyers are looking for. Repainting in "Silver Owl" from Benjamin Moore may set you back a few thousand dollars, but if it helps you sell faster and make more money, it's definitely worth the expense.
Rebuilding the kitchen is probably not a smart move, unless your kitchen is so outdated that it really decreases the value of the property. Instead, the trick here is to look at how the home is staged.... fruit on the counter, real flowers, table set for dinner? These are a few of the tricks that developers use to make buyer's feel more at home.
The yard is another opportunity where a bit of investment may earn a positive return. Consider repainting the fence, adding some colorful plants, and updating your patio furniture.

"I want to Thank Dan Clark for being our Realtor. He sold our house only 18 days, and best of all he sold it for 2.9% above our asking price, which means he got us an extra $3,500.00 more in our pocket! He definitely went above and beyond with his 89 point marketing plan and got our home sold fast. Dan is very hard working, professional, motivated and very knowledgeable in the real estate market. If anyone is looking for a highly motivated and effective Realtor I highly recommend Dan Clark. You are the best!!! Thank you again Dan."
