Kristie Barnett, The Decorologist added this to 7 Tips to Sell Your Home Faster to a Younger Buyer
6. Keep it simple for families with children. People with young kids are less likely to want a fixer-upper. If your target demographic is "young family with small children," it's important that your property be ready for them to move right in. Make sure the home has no unfinished projects or red flags for young families.7. Consider selling your home as a fixer-upper. If your neighborhood is becoming a mecca for young professionals, there may be some appeal to the fixer-upper if the price is right. These younger adults without children may have the time, energy and imagination for making over an older home. Even so, the price will have to be lower than if it were picture perfect.Tell us: What have you learned about demographics from your home selling and staging experiences?Next: The Difference Between Staging and Decorating
