JUPITER, Fla. (PRWEB) August 11, 2012
When homeowners decide to list their property, it indicates they are moving in a new direction, whether upsizing, downsizing or finding something equivalent. Whatever the reason, putting a home on the market is a momentous occasion, and Waterfront Properties and Club Communities is in the business of making sure the place sells.
Realtors at the boutique company in northern Palm Beach County, Fla., know how to present their listings so they dazzle and delight homebuyers and appear turnkey and move-in ready. To produce fast results, they encourage sellers to follow a tried-and-true to-do list well before the MLS number is generated.
Waterfront Properties’ agents suggest gathering and filing important paperwork on home repairs, additions and upgrades so the information easily can be accounted for and promoted to homebuyers as a selling point. Was impact-resistant glass used when replacing the sliding doors? Is the air-conditioning unit less than five years old? Was the swimming-pool pump recently replaced?
That collection of Precious Moments figurines might look nice in the middle of the family-room coffee table, but they more than likely will distract -- not charm -- the homebuyer during a showing. Store those little guys, listing agents say.
When it comes to other, less-important items that have accumulated throughout the years, sell them on eBay, donate them to charity, give them to family or friends, or part with them by having a yard sale.
Whenever a home is listed, even if it’s in the middle of winter, it marks the beginning of Spring-cleaning season for the seller. Those shopping for homes want the interior spotless and smelling sensational. Shampoo the carpets, wash the screens and windows, freshen the paint and get rid of every dust bunny hopping around the baseboards. A home for sale that shines and sparkles will attract attention, give off good vibe and result in a faster sale.
The exterior of the home is just as important as the interior when it comes to staging for a sale. Curb appeal can stop traffic, literally. Attractive landscaping, a pressure-cleaned driveway, potted plants and flowers can lure homeshoppers driving down the street to the front door.
Waterfront Properties serves the communities in and around Jupiter and specializes in Palm Beach Gardens homes for sale, riverfront property in Tequesta and homes for sale in BallenIsles and other golf-club communities.
