Simple options can increase home appeal

June 01, 2012

Does ramping up your homes technology attract buyers and, more importantly for vendors, can technology increase your sale price?

Our experienced LJ Hooker agents, who combined attract an average of 115,000 potential buyers to their open inspections each week around Australia, say that increasing buyer appeal is always worth serious consideration.


This doesn’t mean every seller should invest in ‘modernising’ but it is definitely something home owners should address if they are renovating with intent to sell.


The most basic starting point is power points. Simply put, the more options the better. If you can provide double sockets on every wall in a room, do so.


For renovators, LJ Hooker agents suggest consulting with experts about maximising options for cabling your home which provides the next owners options for placement of audio equipment and multimedia screens.


Providing, ‘wireless’ access and the capacity to work utilities remotely via smartphones and tablets, for example, are considerations, particularly for top-end properties.


Home renovators and builders should think about the cost of introducing latest technology in terms of whether it may increase buyer appeal while remembering that presenting an existing home to the market in its best light is equally as important.
