We’ve seen great improvement in our housing market over the past two years. Right now, we have rising asking prices, higher sales prices and low inventory.

That’s everything you would expect to see in a recovering/improving market – except for the number of transactions.

The number of April home sales in North Fulton and Forsyth County are down approximately 15 percent over last year.

With sellers asking top dollar, buyers are looking for updates, features and condition to all be there or they simply keep looking.

Here are the top turn-ons and turn-offs our team is seeing out there today:

Turn-Ons

➢ Manicured landscaping (curb appeal)

➢ Hardwood floors

➢ Open floor plan (lots of light)

➢ Updated kitchen

➢ Updated master bath

Turn-Offs

➢ Small back yards

➢ Dated kitchens and baths (brass fixtures)

➢ Wallpaper

➢ Road noise

➢ Small bedrooms
