I love when someone introduces me to a new blogger who is kind enough to make some of her work available for a re-blog. Sally Dunbar has some great advice for buyers and sellers. Make sure you click the link to her blog and stop by to say hello. There's nothing like a kind comment from the readers to encourage us writers to keep writing. :-)
For those of you who don't want the hassle of fixing up your home to sell... take a look at these photos of a recent listing I had in the Carmichael area. The doorway at the left looks pretty spooky, like a giant black widow is going to drop on your head if you get too close. And check out the beam thingy above the doorway. It tells you the rest of the house is probably ready to come crashing down as well.
Now look at the same entry way, after a little prep, patch, paint and window trim. Now it looks like a well-kept home, that will stick around for many years.
Which home would you pay more for?
Sellers who aren't willing to do a little work to prep their home for sale are leaving money on the table. Will buyers buy a fixer, then fix it up themselves? You betcha..... but they don't pay full price.
Your best bet is to do the prep work that will make you more money than it will cost. Don't know how to do it?... or who to call? Call me... "I GOT PEOPLE"
