RE/MAX Own It – Features that Date Your Home

Raise your hand if features in the interior of your home are a tribute to the 80s or 90s.

Whether we care to admit it or not, many houses are dated with features and accessories that were popular 20 years ago. But when you put your home on the market, you want to put your best foot forward.

If you are thinking about selling, there are some features of your home that can date it and make it less appealing to buyers. Learn what they are so you can ensure they are fixed before selling!

Check out our first video in the “Own It” series, that focuses on features that date your home.

Here are some updates that can help:

1 – There is nothing that says dated more than popcorn ceilings. You’re going to want to update those!

2 – If you’ve ever had to scrub grout clean on kitchen counters, you know why they should be replaced. Sleek surfaces are easier to clean and more visually appealing.

3 – Back in the 1980s, brass fixtures were all the rage. But today, buyers are looking for more neutral shades such as black or gray.

Lose the shoulder pads of your home, and bring it up to today’s standards! And if you’re not sure what else to update, contact your local RE/MAX agent.
