  1. 1. norrislakeliving.com http://www.norrislakeliving.com/norris-lake-home-sellers/item/13-sell-your-lake-house-on-norris-lake Sell your Lake House on Norris Lake Lake Homes on Norris Lake Norris, TN - Selling your vacation home or lake property on Norris Lake takes preparation, organization and prof essional marketing. Here's everything you need to know to be f ully prepared to sell your lake property in Tennessee, f rom understanding the Norris Lake housing market to choosing a prof essional Real Estate agent that can handle your lake property listing. Selecting a Listing Agent A good real estate agent is worth their weight in gold during the home selling process. Be sure to choose an agent or even better — a lake property specialist who is an expert on all things real estate in your neighborhood and Norris Lake. The agent should know area lake communities on Norris Lake, what vacation home upgrades are necessary to attract buyers and all the intricacies of the transaction. The average agent won't have the detailed knowledge of waterf ront properties in your area. From marketing your lake home f or maximum exposure to negotiating a price and closing the deal, hiring the right agent f or your needs will get it done right! Determining Lake Property Value Determining the right price to sell your lake property is much more a science than an art. If the price is too high,
  2. 2. your house is passed over. Set too low and you stand to lose thousands on the sale. When setting the asking price f or a home don't let emotional attachment and other f actors unrelated to the home's true market value end up inf luencing your sound judgement. Letting emotion drive up your asking price is a mistake that can end up costing you big in the end. Some benefits of pricing your lake property on Norris Lake right include: - Real estate agents will be enthusiastic about presenting your property to buyers - Selling f aster (because it is exposed to more qualif ied buyers) - Doesn't become stale or lose its marketability The good news is that hiring a lake property specialist on Norris Lake with knowledge in the local real estate market will give you the f acts you need to know to make an educated decision on asking price. Lake Property Market Analysis Perf orming a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) is crucial in determining the f air market value of your vacation home on Norris Lake. A CMA will not only provide you with everything you need to know about about your local housing market but will also include how much similar vacation homes are f etching in your neighborhood and whether you're dealing with a seller's market. Prices f or vacation homes that have recently sold in your neighborhood represent what buyers are prepared to pay. Listings that have expired generally are overpriced or poorly marketed. Hiring a listing agent with years of experience and knowledge of the local Norris Lake housing market makes him or her best qualif ied to interpret the data and make sound recommendations. Calculating Expenses & Costs Be sure to budget f or all the expenses associated with selling a vacation home on Norris Lake. Typical costs besides real estate agent f ees and the cost of a new home are legal f ees and disbursements, utility and property tax adjustments, home inspection, repairs and renovations and moving costs.

First Impressions
  4. 4. You only get one chance to make that positive f irst impression. Create an impression that is memorable! When a potential lake home buyer walks in your home — a clean home, f resh f lowers and scented candles can go a long way. Be sure to de-clutter and remove any unnecessary items that take up space. A majority of home tours are f rom visitors out of town ---- including Ohio, Kentucky, North Carolina, etc and they won't be back if there f irst impression is not good! Maximize Space Open your mind to new ways to rearrange your f urniture. This can create openness and space within a room making the room seem larger. This will of f er open views that can enhance the f eeling and mood of the room. Be sure to always rearrange your f urniture with a f ocal point in mind. This can be anything f rom a great view of the lake, pool, or patio area. Modernize the Kitchen When thinking about upgrades f or your kitchen, think about the people that will be using them. Are your kitchen appliances outdated? What appliances would you want the most when spending a vacation on the lake? Using all stainless steel or neutral colors can add real value to your home. A Clean Home is a Happy Home Your vacation home shouldn't look like a zoo. Remove any unused items around the lake house that may create clutter. Make the master bedroom shine like a luxury suite with that exceptional view of Norris Lake! Closets should also look and smell clean. Removing f loor rugs can sometimes create the f eeling of more space while showcasing the beauty of your wood f loors and that lake house f eel.
  5. 5. norrislakeliving.com http://www.norrislakeliving.com/norris-lake-home-sellers/item/14-increase-the-value-of-your-lake-home Increase the Value of Your Lake Home Actual SOLD Listing Norris Lake, TN - Although making home improvements does not guarantee an increase in value, it will at the very least make your vacation home on Norris Lake more competitive against your competition. The value you create now will increase over time. Use these tips to help increase the value of your vacation home and enjoy the rewards when it is time to sell. Upgrades that add Value to your Lake House or Vacation Home Specif ic home improvements can increase your property value above the cost of the improvements themselves — such as remodeling a kitchen, adding a bathroom and even upgrading landscaping. Be sure to remember that quality pays with remodeling. A bad remodeling job will do little to boost your property value. Savvy home buyers will be able to easily identif y the things wrong with your lake house. Modern Kitchen - This includes any of the f ollowing: kitchen appliances, cabinetry, tile backsplashes, counter- tops and f looring. Try to use natural materials. If your appliances are older than 3-5 years, you should consider
  6. 6. purchasing new ones. Using top of the line appliances with stainless steel or a prof essional series that integrates with the cabinetry are sure to help home buyers take a second glance. Master Bedroom & Bath upgrades - The master bedroom should f eel like a suite, especially since it's a vacation home. Adding dimming f eatures and recessed lighting create an ambiance of high value. The bathroom and shower should also provide spa like f eatures with oversized tubs, large shower heads and tiled f loors. Also, don't f orget about the closet! Closet storage is one of the easiest and of ten overlooked upgrades. Modern Fixtures - This can be anything f rom kitchen and bathroom with plumbing f ixtures more than 10 years old. Brushed nickel, antique copper and brass f ixtures are inexpensive and easy to replace. Your home should have a unif ied look throughout. Landscaping - Invest in curb appeal. Well manicured lawns, trimmed landscaping and a clean driveway help create a greater buyer appeal. Other Upgrade Ideas Going Green - Upgrading or adding Eco-f riendly home improvements can have a big return on investment including tax incentives. Going Green can include water saving plumbing f ixtures, tank-less hot water heaters to energy ef f icient appliances. Quality Roof - Roof s older than 15 years should be inspected and possibly replaced. A quality new roof will not only protect but adds value to the home. Use clay tiles, copper, slate or standing metal seam instead of the standard asphalt shingles. Energy Saving Windows - Installing Energy Star qualif ied windows lowers energy bills and saves money. Use double paned windows, windows with integral window treatments or insulated varieties all equate to saving energy. Well-placed skylights are also a good touch that can add value.
