What’s more important when it comes to Bacchus Marsh real estate, style or substance?

furniture 1For those watching ‘The Block’, Monday night’s episode has raised another interesting question, which we thought may help those currently renovating or thinking of selling their Bacchus Marsh home… What’s the most important thing for you when looking for a new home?

Monday night’s ‘The Block’ episode saw two couples running so low on money they’re being forced to make some very tough decisions.  Should they spend their remaining money on storage or furniture?  What are buyers looking for?  Is presentation more important on Auction Day than the actual nuts and bolts of the house?

We often hear of Bacchus Marsh home owners preparing their houses for sale, and we always advise to present the house at its best for inspection, and we happily suggest staging tips.  Of course presentation matters!  From attractive photos on the internet to a stunningly decorated home at inspection, buyers will more likely pay more for a home they fall in love with, and they’re more likely to fall in love with a home that they can see themselves living happily in.  A messy, unclean, cluttered or unusually decorated home can hinder this.

But what is ultimately more important when selling Bacchus Marsh real estate – style or substance?

We thought we’d throw this question open to you.  Whether you’ve bought a home, are buying a house, or have searched for a Bacchus Marsh rental property, chances are you know what you want.  Is it a spacious kitchen, great outdoor entertaining area, large bedrooms, ensuite bathroom, storage space, or something more cosmetic like stylish paint colours or the right floorboards or carpets?  There are no right or wrong answers, but we’d love to hear your thoughts… What do you look for when searching for a new house?
