What Does ‘Move-In Ready’ Mean to Buyers?

On July 17, 2019, Posted by , In Real Estate, With Comments Off on What Does ‘Move-In Ready’ Mean to Buyers?
Most buyers (58%) think it means fresh paint, but over half also expect new floors and counter tops, plus updated cabinets and modern finishes.

A “move-in ready” home may mean different things to different buyers – everything from having freshly painted walls to having window blinds included.

Bungalo, a real estate platform for buying newly renovated homes online, surveyed more than 550 home shoppers between the ages of 25 to 54 on what elements are required for a home to be considered “move-in ready.”

If you’re going to use the term for listings, here’s what most buyers expect:

  • 58%: Fresh paint
  • 55%: New flooring
  • 54%: New countertops
  • 51%: Updated cabinetry
  • 51%: Modern finishes (faucets, doorknobs, etc.)
  • 49%: Modern light fixtures
  • 45%: Blinds in the windows
  • 45%: Renovated master bath
  • 34%: Fridge
  • 32%: Washer and dryer
