Highlighting quality always helps. A design done well—whether its a fresh aesthetic, harmonious colors, layout with good circulation, or perfect installation—is likely to impress, even if its not in the buyers taste. “If you do anything really well and make consistent choices throughout a home, you can usually get away with them and appeal to a wide circle,” says New York-based designer Carolyn DiCarlo. Pogonitz agrees, noting a common reaction to the excellent execution of a wild design is “I can live with this for a while.” In one kitchen she updated eight years ago, Cheryl Kees Clendenon, owner of In Detail in Pensacola, Fla., made novel but quality choices not widely used then (though increasingly common now). “I painted upper and lower cabinets different shades and installed a glass countertop on an island. Some real estate salespeople seemed nervous, but the savvy listing agent played up that it was a custom design. It sold right away,” she says.
When you talk with clients looking to find the right house, condo, or apartment, you probably inquire about their cooking and entertaining needs, how important outdoor living is, and whether elderly relatives may move in someday. But theres another question that savvy real estate professionals should pose: Are pets part of your family equation? In more and more cases, the answer is yes. In the American Pet Products Associations 2017–2018 National Pet Owners Survey, 68 percent of U.S. households owned a pet, which works out to about 85 million families. Ownership is up from 56 percent in 1988, the first year the survey was conducted. While 48 percent of all households now own dogs, 38 percent have at least one cat. Fish, birds, reptiles, small mammals, and horses represent smaller numbers.
