From smaller historic neighborhoods with gorgeous tree-lined streets to neighborhoods perfect for hip couples, the city offers it all. When you focus on the lifestyle you lead, buyers will never want to leave.
Show Your Pride
Whether you graduated from UK or just love rooting on the home team during basketball season, make potential buyers feel the same way. You don’t need to add blue and white striped walls in your house, but you might hang a framed jersey or hang a school pride flag outside. Buyers who love the Wildcats will appreciate knowing that you loved the team as much as they do and relocating buyers will love the sense of local support and pride.
Emphasize Family Time
With the kids coming and going throughout the day and busy work days, it’s often hard to sit down and enjoy a meal together. Make sure to emphasize family space when you put your house up for sale. Turn your dining room into a place where people want to sit and eat together with a simple tablecloth paired with matching dishes, utensils and glasses. Leaving a few blankets and board games out in the living room will make buyers think about sitting together and having fun as a family in their new home.
Have Some Fun
Though some buyers won’t admit it, they oftentimes want homes with unique features. If you live in one of the hipper and more up-and-coming neighborhoods in Lexington, consider adding a backyard vegetable garden or game room to set your space apart from the rest. While you do need to spend some extra money to put in those features, these are eye-catching extras not every home has. Those unique features will appeal to buyers who never looked twice at your home before.
Showcase Kid-Friendly Aspects
Several buyers looking for homes in Lexington are young couples with kids or newlywed couples looking forward to having kids. You can make your house appeal to those buyers when you showcase the kid-friendly aspects of your home. Emphasizing rooms perfectly placed for a nursery or play room are excellent ways for potential buyers to imagine themselves growing in your home.
Lexington is a thriving and growing city. People move to the city every year for school and work, and you want to make your house stands out. Adding specific features such as kid-friendly elements or eye catching uses of your space as a game room will help your home to stand out among the rest.
