Delaware and Pennsylvania Home Selling Points to Highlight to Buyers

With more homebuyers in the local real estate market this summer, one thing is for certain— buyers are looking for home features that their current homes do not already supply. Popular selling points like extra storage, organization, a great location, low-energy features and low maintenance will stand out to those looking to purchase a home in Delaware and Pennsylvania area.
If you're a DE or PA home seller, it's important to highlight your home's best features, no matter the reasons you're moving on. Don't take your current home for granted and you could just set the stage for a home sale. 
Storage Space
For many homebuyers in the Delaware real estate market right now, especially those first-time homebuyers who are dealing with little space, storage is a big plus. Despite what you think of your home—maybe you have a standard basement or garage that you use as storage—a first-time homebuyer may think they've hit the jackpot. Built-in storage in the kitchen?

Worn, old roof
When searching for homes in Delaware and Pennsylvania, buyers can quickly make a note of those whose roofs look like they may need replacing. If your roof is coming to the end of its road (typically 20 to 25 years), replacing it could help you sell faster.
Old appliances
Today's homebuyers are looking for updated kitchens with newer appliances. They do not want to have this expense upon their move into your home. If you have dated appliances, buyers may also wonder what else you've failed to replace.
Difficult, creaky windows

Whether you intend to be in your next home in Delaware or Pennsylvania for two years or twelve years, it is always important to determine resale value.

How Delaware and Pennsylvania Real Estate is an Age-Old Inflation Hedge

Real estate has just been voted the best investment for the eighth year in a row— better than stocks, gold, and savings! But that’s not all real estate can hold its own against by comparison.
Real estate is also a time-honored inflation hedge. In fact, for the last decade, home price appreciation has beat inflation by several percentage points.
During times where inflation is mounting, rising costs of rent can also be a major concern. However, as a homeowner, fixed-rate mortgages can help you keep your monthly housing payment the same.
“A fixed-rate mortgage allows you to maintain the biggest portion of housing expenses at the same payment. Sure, property taxes will rise and other expenses may creep up, but your monthly housing payment remains the same,” said James Royal, Senior Wealth Management Reporter at Bankrate. “That’s certainly not the case if you’re renting.”
