The one thing that hit home with me on this post by Michael McGuffie is what he calls the "money shot". I call it the wow factor. When a buyer walks into a home for the first time, takes one look around and says "wow". I know they have found their next home.
Where Should I Spend My Money When Building A Custom Home?Once you've selected your lot, where should you spend your money when building?Realtors will tell you a house should have 3 wow's! What they mean is, you can spend money all over your new custom home and nobody will notice. A little here, a little there, upgrading along the way but nobody will ever notice the dollars you spent.It's better to concentrate the money spent on upgrades into 3 wows! The magical 3 wows is what sells a home.Of course, a home must be inviting from the street to entice buyers into your home. After that, it takes 3 wows to sell your home. Usually it's the kitchen, master suite and the money shot when standing in the foyer.A home should be like opening a present, buyers like to experience surprises as they experience your home.Don't forget to make the area outside your front door sharp. Most people judge the quality of your home by what they see standing outside while they wait for you to answer the door. Don't scrimp in this area or it will hurt you when it''s time to sell.
Have an awesome day-Mike
