How to Make Your Home More Appealing to Families

Is your home located in a great school district? Does it have a spacious backyard that’s perfect for a swing set? Do your own children have fond memories of playing and running in your home? If you answered “yes” to one or more of these questions, selling your home this spring for the maximum amount possible may mean making a special appeal to families.


Like with most products available for sale, targeting a specific segment of the market can help you see more serious buyers and avoid wasting your time showing to potential buyers who are looking for a different type of property than what you have for sale. Read on to learn three ways that you can help improve your home’s appeal with families and parents who are looking for a place to raise their children:


  • Put yourself in your buyer’s shoes. If you feel strongly that your home would be a great fit for a family, think about why that is. Firsthand experience with teachers in the district, particularly friendly neighbors, or a local club that takes great pride in the community are all personal touches that potential buyers will enjoy hearing about. Think about your favorite parts of your home and community, and write them down for buyers who come to visit your property.


  • Childproof your interior. Parents who visit your property will be on the lookout for potential hazards that may endanger their little ones, so take some time to “childproof” the inside of your home. Ensure that all locks are working, stairways are equipped with sturdy railings, and gates and doors are present to prevent children from falling down flights of stairs in your home.


  • Minimize risk from your exterior. One of the biggest factors that parents look for when considering which homes to buy is the yard. If you have a large backyard on your property, you will already be able to fetch a higher price for your home. However, parents want to make sure that the house they raise their children in is as safe as possible. If you do not already have a fence installed on your property, adding one with the help of Bucks County fence contractors can help you to better appeal to parents.
