Luxury Home Selling Tips


Once you have decided to sell a luxury home in Destin, it can seem a bit overwhelming at first. However, with the right Realtor, this can be a wonderful and stress-free experience. As professionals, over the years we have learned what sells. Here are some of the most highly desirable features a luxury home buyer is looking for in today’s market.

The first thing buyers look at, and this is somewhat obvious, is location. Once you are working with a professional Realtor, you can discuss the features of your home that add value and should be marketed to buyers. Are you in a great school district? Is the home located in a gated community? These things need to be highlighted. Even features that seem like small details can make a difference. Does your backyard offer privacy? Is there a yacht club, golf course, or clubhouse nearby? When you are selling a home in a competitive market, anything that can add value to the location should be accentuated.

Another large selling point in the current market is technology. Smart homes are changing the way people live their lives, and buyers love it. In today’s world, you can control the lighting, temperature, and security of your home right from your phone. If you do not have the latest technology built into the actual structure of your home, there are still several innovations that you can install that allow for remote control of your home, giving it a more contemporary feel. If updated technology is not an option, you can still add simple features like LED light bulbs and a recycling area to make your home more modern.

In the same line as technology, buyers love their space. In the past, homes were more compartmentalized and offered formal living areas and separate dining rooms. Today, people prefer an open space, brighter living areas, and an overall welcoming feel. If you have the more formal stand-alone rooms, consider a home improvement project that opens up your space. If you already have an airy living area, be sure to feature that in any marketing images.

Marketing your home for sale online with great images is the most important thing you can do to reach potential buyers. Amazing images should show the beauty and feeling of a home but also reflect the lifestyle the home provides. A Realtor will be able to help you have a professional photographer capture the elegance of your home, and then develop a marketing plan that will fit your needs. Today’s buyer does their research and looks at images of a home online before visiting the home in person. Your online presence is incredibly important if you are looking to reach potential buyers.
