The Secrets to Selling Your Home from Lake Tahoe?s Most Trusted Realtors!

Posted by carrlong on November 16th, 2017

Lake Tahoe is one of the most popular destinations in the world, and is a hot spot for those who are interested in purchasing a condo or a house. For those who want to sell their home, it's important to find a seller quickly to avoid losing value on the property. To ensure that you find the right buyer, there are a few secrets to selling the home:

Remove Clutter

Clutter that is present in the each room will quickly detract from the features and the quality of the space. Remove paperwork that has accumulated in the office or toys that are present in a spare room.

Hide Personalized Items

You'll want to remove personalized items that remind potential buyers that someone is still living in the home. Hide pictures of your family or monogrammed items that are visible.

Stage the Property

Staging a home is one of the most effective steps to take to show off the potential of the setting and allow it to shine. You can stage the home by using neutral decor with beige and white shades that appeal to more buyers. You can also add a fresh set of towels in the bathrooms and remove personal photos of your family that may be on display.

Increase Your Curb Appeal

The curb appeal of the home is one of the most important parts of the setting because it determines how many people decide to visit the property after it's advertised. You can increase your curb appeal by painting the door with a pop of color, installing a water feature in the yard, and adding a new mailbox to ensure that the home stands out in the neighborhood.

Deep Clean Everything

It's important to remember that buyers will be examining each part of the home, which means that you'll need to deep clean the entire space to make it look like it's maintained well. Clean the grout, power wash the driveway and remove moss that may be present on the roof. You'll also want to dust the ceiling fans and remove water spots on the windows.

Although you may not be sure where to start when it comes to selling your property in Lake Tahoe, there are several steps to take to ensure that it's ready to be listed. By creating a clean and comfortable setting, you can find a buyer in a shorter period of time.
