Even when it is clearly necessary, if you’re like most of us, you feel a built-in reluctance to sell your Camas property. Those four walls (okay, I know there are more like 40 or 80, but bear with me) contain all the furnishings and other possessions we gather through the years to create our family’s unique environment. When we come through that front door, we feel more comfortable than anywhere else on Earth.
But your home is also an investment (and what a colossal one it is!). That’s why the decision to sell your Camas property—disconcerting though it may be—ought to be much more a business proposition than an emotional one.
When you choose me as your Washington real estate agent, it becomes part of my job to point out the smart business decisions that will help you sell your Camas property—even when that means altering some of what has always made the place feel like home to you.
Fortunately, sometimes there are really simple things that increase a home’s perceived value:
The front door is frequently absent from renovation lists, but as the point of entry, it does much to influence potential home buyers. Installing a bright, shiny new brass doorknob, giving the door a fresh coat of paint, or adding a traditional mailbox out at the curb can make your entire home seem more inviting.
If you enjoy your oversized television, you’re part of a not-so-silent American majority. That’s all well and fine, but unless the room is a man-cave, it’s likely that a television which overpowers the space will make buyers feel that the room is too small. Consider swapping for a size-appropriate set to help you sell your Camas property.
Even on a miniscule
budget, minor changes like these can attract interested buyers in
this Spring’s market. Looking for more creative ideas to sell your
Camas property? Why not call me today?
