7 ways not to sell your carillon lakes home for sale

  1. 1. 7 Ways Not to Sell Your Carillon Lakes Home for Sale
  2. 2. 7 Ways Not to Sell Your Carillon Lakes Home for Sale If you are selling your Carillon Lakes Home in Florida, make sure you avoid these 7 ways of how not to sell your home:
  3. 3. 1. Overpricing Price is almost always the main factor in why homes do not sell. It’s either price for condition or price for location. How do you know if you have the right price for your Carillon Lakes home for sale? It’s when you start getting offers from multiple buyers. To find out how what the best price for your home is that will attract many buyers, hire an agent who has experience in selling Carillon Lakes homes.
  4. 4. 2. Bad location No matter how great your house is, it will never compensate for a bad location. Homes that are close to a busy freeway, a waste treatment facility, or a power plant, will often sit longer on the market. Neighborhoods with high crime rates or a bad reputation will also turn off potential buyers.
  5. 5. 3. Poor condition If you sell your home in a bad condition, buyers will think that it will cost them half as much to repair and renovate it as it does to buy it. Most buyers want move-in ready homes and today’s buyers are reluctant to spend much on home repairs or renovations, especially if there are other homes around the area that don’t need as much work.
  6. 6. 4. Bad design Some buyers get turned off by homes with strange floor plans or inefficient use of space. Some homes stay longer on the market because of their outdated or obsolete design like homes where you have to walk through one bedroom to get into another bedroom or a home without a driveway.
  7. 7. 5. Dated or tacky decor Loud colors, busy patterns, and dated furniture and window treatments can be a major turn off to buyers. When it comes to selling a home, less is more, since everyone has different tastes. You might want to consider remodeling your 1970s kitchen to a more modern one to help your home sell faster. Making it more modern and energy-efficient will increase its value and give you a higher return on investment.
  8. 8. 6. Bigger home among smaller homes Bigger is not always better. You may think that having a bigger, fancier, more elegant home is nice and will sell faster, but it actually will not do you any wonders when it comes time to sell. Buyers are not only paying for the home, but also for everything around it. If the homes in your neighborhood are too different from yours in size and design, if yours is the only big home while all the other homes are smaller ones, you might not get the luxury price you expect for your home.
  9. 9. 7. Bad photos Never post photos of your home in an unclean state, bad condition, or even bad lighting. This includes cluttered floors, dirty clothes, and disarrayed furniture. Buyers will think that the home is not maintained properly or in need of repairs and will look elsewhere for cleaner looking homes.
  10. 10. Aside from avoiding these 7 issues, make sure you get the help of a real estate agent who has experience in selling Carillon Lakes homes for sale so you can get expert advice and the right marketing tools and techniques to sell your home fast and for top dollar.
