3 Simple Steps To Prepare Your Lakewood Ranch Home For Sale

May. 25, 2011

Here are a few tips to help your Lakewood Ranch home for sale show better and sell faster:

1. Get rid of the excess: Eliminate as much as possible, and then do it again. Remember when staging your Lakewood Ranch home for sale, less is best. Swap out personal photos for framed art. The main idea is to remove as much as possible and replace personal items with neutral objects so that people can imagine their things in the home.

 

2. Repair and paint: Before painting, fix all those minor dings that don't really bother you. Buyers notice everything. A missing piece of baseboard, an outlet that doesn't work, or a closet door that won’t stay on track all seem minor, but they can have a huge affect on how a buyer views your home. The next step is to apply a fresh coat of paint in a neutral color. Freshly painted walls make a room look cleaner and larger.

 

3. Improve the curb appeal: You have to get people in the door before they’ll buy your Lakewood Ranch home for sale. If your house looks bad on the outside, buyers won’t waste their time taking a look at the inside. Improving your curb appeal doesn't mean you need to hire a landscaper. It can be as basic as trimming your hedges and trees, especially those closest to your house. Repair or replace loose porch railings and make sure the exterior paint is not chipping. If needed, scrape and paint; peeling paint is a real turnoff to buyers. Keep the lawn mowed. Put away bikes, toys and garden tools.

Curb appeal is always important. The outside of your home is the first thing potential buyers see so it should be impressive. Thanks for the tips!
