According to KCM’s findings, 41% of Americans would prefer to build their home, as opposed to buy an existing property.  Those are terrific numbers, if you are selling a plot of land, or are a homebuilder looking for business.

However, if you are trying to sell an existing home, how can you use this information to help sell your home? Take a look at the graph.  Give your attention to the reasons that home buyers prefer to build, and make some changes to increase your home’s appeal.  Pay heed – cost savings is the number one driving force for purchasing a resale over a new build.  If you are going to update your current home, to enhance its’ desirability – make sure your costs are reasonable.
