Is Your Home Dated

February 9, 2012 |  Article By :   | 

As a Realtor I see a lot of homes, some are new, some are old, some are updated but there are some things that will just date any home that are easy to change!  You live in your home so you may not realize the effect certain items have on a buyer.  Is your home dated?  One of the worst offenders would be the gold knobs and light fixtures from the 80’s and 90’s.  I can’t tell you how many homes I have shown where the sellers have done a great job of renovating their home but they left the gold hardware and fixtures which immediately says to the buyers – dated!  I think most sellers have gotten so used to these items, they don’t even see them.  Even if you are not going to renovate your home prior to putting it on the market, change out the gold hardware and fixtures and replace them with the current trend.  This is a fairly inexpensive and simple fix that will really add an updated look to any home.
