The Massachusetts spring real estate market is coming up and we have been getting a lot of calls from realtors and homeowners who are readying their properties for sale. Spring is traditionally a busy time for the housing market so these calls don’t surprise us.
It’s no secret that natural stone like granite and marble in a home can make a home more appealing to potential buyers, but dirty, scuffed or scratched stone can be a real distraction from the value of the property.
Local real estate pros, Beth and Steve Weiss handle several sides of the home market. As the Weiss Team, they are realtors representing buyers and sellers in Sharon, Canton, Foxboro and the surrounding area; while their other business, Mass Property Solutions Llc, buys property, renovates and resells in the same locality. Beth and Steve both feel that upgrades such as stone can have a big impact on the value and desirability of a home.
“We always try to showcase the most desirable features when selling a home,” says Beth. “Updated kitchens and bathrooms with marble or granite countertops are places where we see increased value. Stone floors are also really appealing, but only if they are in good condition. People tend to have a really positive response to homes that are well cared for– especially those upgraded with stone like granite, marble and quartz.”
