This is great news for sellers, particularly first-time home sellers most likely to have the kind of starter homes these buyers want. Putting your house on the market isn’t intimidating if you plan ahead and enlist the right help.
Take a look at our tips for first time home sellers in Nashville:
1. Prepare for your own purchase
Jackie Karr, The Lipman Group Sotheby’s International Realty
Before selling your home, give some careful thought about where you will live next.
If your plan is to buy another home and finance it, Nashville agent Jackie Karr recommends meeting with a lender. This meeting can provide education and you can get preapproved for a mortgage. That way, you’ll know what you will be able to afford—and can eliminate surprises. Also, you might determine in this meeting to purchase a home contingent on the sale of your existing one.
2. Get the home move-in ready
Chris Mannino, The Lipman Group Sotheby’s International Realty
Agent Chris Mannino points out that many of us tend to think of first time home sellers as young and ready to “move up” but that’s not always the case. Chris has had clients well into their 50’s whom have lived happily in their first home up until now.
Regardless of age and stage of life, curb appeal is of the utmost of importance. If the home doesn’t look inviting from the outside, buyers will most likely not even go through your listing photos to view the interior photos.
Inside the home, do whatever you can to make your home move-in ready. Depersonalizing and minimizing needs to be a number one priority. Chris also recommends a pre-inspection before the home goes on the market in order to make needed repairs.
He says, “Put your best foot forward right out of the gate, price your home correctly and always be show-ready.”

1. Walk-in closets: Large closets, particularly in the master bedroom, is among one of home shoppers’ top priorities, according to the NAHB survey of builders and remodelers. Indeed, 31 percent of 1,000 home owners recently surveyed by PulteGroup said they’d sacrifice another household feature in order to have his-and-hers closets in the master bedroom.
2. Luxurious laundry rooms: Buyers are looking for more than just a place to stick their washer and dryer. They want upgraded laundry rooms – complete with skylights, built-in ironing boards, space for folding clothes, extra storage, and upgraded appliances, according to the NAHB survey.
3. Energy efficiency: Home buyers are looking to cut utility costs, and energy efficiency appliances and products can be one way to do that. Low e-windows, Energy Star appliances, and programmable thermostats are more in demand among home shoppers.
4. Great rooms: These large open spaces that often merge dining rooms, living rooms, and kitchens continue to be in high-demand among home shoppers, according to NAHB’s poll of builders. “Great rooms are wonderful places where everyone in the family can sit around, or where the kids can do their homework while you get dinner ready,” Stephen Melman of NAHB told MainStreet. “Today’s great rooms are large, bright and just make you feel good being there.”
5. Taller first-floor ceilings: More home buyers want the first floor to stretch beyond the typical eight-foot ceiling. They’re asking builders for nine-foot ceiling heights. The taller ceilings can open up living rooms, dining rooms, and other spaces on the first floor. But home shoppers say they can do without the cathedral ceiling in the family room, which can be too costly to heat and cool. Also, they aren’t preferring the higher ceilings on the second floor, which many home buyers say they want to feel more cozy, Melman says.
