Location, Location, Condition?
Everyone has heard of Location, Location, Location. It's true, certain communities or even just a great view help sell a home quicker or for more money than other similar homes. However, I see Sellers these days not worrying about the condition of their home. In other words --- some paint and little elbow grease may get you some more $$$ and should definitely help you find a willing buyer faster than if the home was in shambles.
A good start would be to ask your Realtor for suggestions. One service I provide, if the situation warrants it, is a Home Staging report from a local company that specializes in prepping homes for sale.
The home listed above is in a neighborhood that past clients have told me they would like to move to. So -- the location part is in order. The owners have also taken great care of the home, which is evident as soon as you step foot inside.
