8 Features That Can Make Your House Surprisingly Harder to Sell

March 1, 2018

We usually think that the more features a house has and the more amenities are nearby, the easier it would be to sell the house later on, right? Well, the thing is, the features and amenities you like may be the exact opposite of what others prefer.

 

Here are some of the most common features and amenities that are unappealing to some home buyers to help you in deciding your purchase and set your expectations if you are selling.  

 

- A Busy Location

Some love the convenience of having stores, restaurants, and cafes just outside the door but some prefer a more quiet and ‘slow’ location. Know too that homes on busy streets usually have less value compared to a similar home in an interior street.

 

- The Size of Your Yard

Some people just don’t want anything to do with maintaining a yard, period. Some won’t want to move in unless the yard is big enough for big parties or to provide a substantial distance away from the neighbors.. It’s just near impossible to find the perfect balance.

 

- Bedroom Location

This is a big factor when purchasing a home. There are people who would balk out of buying a beautiful dream home just because one of the bedrooms is downstairs. The stakes go higher when it is the master’s bedroom that is in an unusual location, such as next to the kitchen. Generally speaking though, those in their senior years or near retirement usually want a one story home or for the bedrooms to be downstairs.

 

- A School Just a Few Steps Away

Having a school practically next door is heaven-sent for some but the very definition of a nightmare for other people. You may love the idea of walking your children to school but for someone who has no children, the idea of having children coming and going on the street right next to their house isn’t something they’d want. Not to mention the school buses and vehicles of parents dropping off and picking up kids for most of the year.

 

- Fancy Renovations

A granite kitchen or beautifully landscaped lawn can make buyers think that a home is a pain to maintain, more so if not situated in an affluent neighborhood.

 

- Having Tile Flooring

Let’s face it, tile flooring isn’t the easiest to maintain. They are also difficult to remove, replace, and/or repair. Note too that tile patterns you love might be off-putting for some people. Hardwood is often the safest bet.

 

- Having a Swimming Pool

A swimming pool might be something you’ve always dreamed of having but someone who hates swimming or don’t want the cost of maintaining a pool will definitely not be into it. You may even have to take a loss when it’s time to sell a home that has a pool.

 

- A Deck or A Patio

It all boils down to maintenance being an issue. If you love being out in the yard while still being comfortable then, having a patio or a deck is something you love, but some would think that having them is just an inconvenience that they will be forced to take when buying a home. Just like having a pool, this might shave a few thousands off your home’s selling price.
