If you’re thinking about selling your home in Vero Beach this fall, your REALTOR® can tell you exactly what buyers are looking for based on what’s selling. In the meantime, check out these three home upgrades everyone wants this fall so you can start planning.

3 Home Upgrades Everyone Wants This Fall

The three hottest home upgrades buyers are looking for – and that are helping homes sell quickly (at or above list price) are:

1.     Finished outdoor living space

2.     Home office space

3.     Workout space

Here’s a closer look at each.

Finished Outdoor Living Space

If you’re feeling a touch of cabin fever after months of sticking close to home, you’re not alone. Buyers are feeling it too, so outdoor living space is at a premium right now. Don’t add a swimming pool or anything drastic, though. You don’t want buyers thinking about maintenance! Instead, add an in-ground fire pit or refinish your deck. Think about adding a gazebo or pergola and add some patio furniture so buyers can envision themselves escaping to the backyard.

Home Office Space

It doesn’t look like people are heading back to the office anytime soon – and even those who are will still be working from home quite a bit. If you have a room in your home that you can convert to a home office, now’s the time to do it, even if it’s only to help you sell. If you don’t have enough space, carve out an area in the corner of the dining room or in a guest bedroom that can function as a workspace.

Workout Space

A lot of people are skipping gym days thanks to the pandemic, and with talk of a second wave coming this fall and winter, they’re looking for in-home workout spaces. If you have a spare room, add a stationary bike or treadmill, yoga mats and a shelf full of water bottles in your home. If not, you can still sell the idea of workout space by adding a yoga mat, blocks and towels to a shelf in the living room.
