Tips for Selling Your Home

Selling Your Home on Lake Martin?

 

Let's do a reality check.  Before you invite potential buyers into your home you'd better take a critical look at your property.  Many of the improvements you can make to get ready involve few $$ and lots of elbow grease so there are no excuses!

Stick to basics and you'll be okay.  Ask your professional REALTOR® to critique your home and to help you with staging for maximum results.

    • What do buyers want?   Clean, bright, light, neutral!
  • "de-personalize":  eliminate clutter & too many family photos
  • ever been in a model home?  Try to look like that!
  • don't distract buyers with an overload of "stuff"
  • clean windows and screens, doorways and trim
