8 popular trends with US home buyers in 2007

Home sellers take note. After surveying 923 real estate agents, Mark Nash, author of 1001 Tips for Buying & Selling a Home and Fundamentals of Marketing for Real Estate Professionals, has the following 8 suggestions for making your home attractive to buyers:

  1. Use glass tiles instead of ceramics ones in kitchens or bathrooms.
  2. Avoid installing bowl-shaped, above-the-counter bathroom sinks. They look pretty, but have proven to be harder to maintain and keep clean.
  3. Use engineered stone compound for kitchen counter tops.
  4. Don’t install too many glass cabinet doors in your kitchen. They look better in magazines than they do in real life.
  5. Replace wooden or chain-link fences with a wrought-iron one.
  6. Use bold and deep colours for shutter, door and window frame,
  7. Avoid using bamboo flooring.
  8. If you’re adding new construction, don’t use concrete blocks in exterior walls.
