Selling in Land o Lakes or Wesley Chapel or surounding areas?

Everyone knows when you go to sell anything, you must get it ready to sell.  What do you need to do to get your home ready to sell?  Believe it or not, this is a huge part of marketing your home, and something I have my sellers spend a bit of time, but not so much money on.  You see, in order to sell a home you have to know what the buyers today are looking for.  With this knowledge, we prepare and stage our listings to maximize the interest and ultimately the offers we will receive.

1) Curb appeal.  Of course this is your first chance to make
a good first impression.  This is how we get the buyers in your house.  Pressure washing and/or painting, new mulch, new flowering plants, trimming, etc.  An experienced Realtor can help you know what to do and help you stay within a budget.

2 I always say, “Paint is cheap”.  And it can be fun.  It certainly makes a big difference in the impression buyers get.  I can help you know what to paint and what can slide, what colors are best in what rooms, what will get you the best return on your time and money.  It’s my job, and I study these things… for you.

3 The kitchen is the most important room in the house in our current market.  Kitchen reno’s can easily get out of hand.  I have seen some kitchen reno's where the homeowner definitely spent way more than they needed to, and will never recover the money spent. Also, some that certainly did not get the homeowner more money for their home, and some that were not a good idea at all.  Before you spend a lot of money on kitchen renovation, call me and let’s talk about what you are trying to accomplish.  You may be surprised at how little it can cost to make a big impact in the kitchen.   A little experience in this can save you a lot of money.

4 The bathrooms are very important, especially the master bath. 
You may not be able to add more room to your small master bath, but you can easily add style.  And in bathrooms as well as kitchens, “Clean equals Green” is what I always say.  The more clean you have in your kitchen and bathrooms, the more green you will get from the sale.

If you are going to be selling a home soon, contact me.  I would love to  help you save even more money while getting the extra value out of your home.  There are a lot of costs during the process.  Knowing where to spend your money, and where you can save money, will help put more money in your wallet.
