Buying a home for the first time is exciting, maybe a little scary, but still a big part of the American Dream. There is plenty of helpful information out there about what to think about and what to do when buying your first home. Much of it has to do with making the right choices both home wise and financially.
What you do not often see is information about selling it later as related to the purchase process. No, not from the perspective of how long you think you will own it, but in thinking about selling during the buying process. Sure, you will get appreciation information, such as the neighborhood and market area appreciate well, and you can expect the home to rise in value.
When thinking about selling when you are buying, you want to try to picture yourself in the future, listing your home for sale. You want to think about not what you found appealing about the home now, but what it will look like to buyers some years down the road.
Consider the features you think are current and in-demand now, and if they will be the same a few years from now. What features you would like are not available today in the home, but you could add them over time? Any improvements or upgrading you can do at a reasonable cost may return many times over a few years in the future.
Are you buying the smallest home or one on the smaller side of average in the neighborhood? If so, adding or expanding a room could bring it up to a higher value per square foot. On the other side, do not add to a home that is already on the large side for the neighborhood. You are not likely to see the value increase in the amount you would like.
A lot of what you are considering here is how the home you are buying compares to others in the neighborhood. Comparing the home’s features, quality of the cabinetry, flooring, countertops, etc. will help you to see what you may be able to change or improve that will add value and attract future buyers.
Try to get past the excitement of how much this home fits your needs and desires and think about how it will look to buyers when you decide to sell in five to ten years or later.
