Dos And Don'ts For Selling Your Home Fast In Florida

Oct 14, 2007
Selling a house anywhere in the world is a cumbersome process. It takes patience and time to find the right buyer who is prepared to pay a suitable price for your home. When one lives in a home, it is not just the fact of it being an abode that makes it valuable for the owner but the attachment that he develops over time with a shelter that offers rest, comfort and security. However, sentimental values do not affect the desirability and price of the house during an assessment made by a new buyer. His assessment will more likely be based on practical considerations like whether the house is in good repair or not. He will have a mental or written checklist, which can run something like:

. What is the state of the plumbing?
. Is the drain clear?
. Are the toilets in proper functioning order?
. Does the roof leak?
. Are the walls of the house dirty and flaky or are they clean and painted.
. Are all electrical fittings and switches in order?
. Are the doors nice and solid, with properly functioning latches and locks?
. Are windows and other opening wind and watertight?

Therefore, for 'fast selling' property in Florida you need to draw up a strategic plan. You must make sure to first repair and renovate your house in order to garner the best deal from a buyer. Using simple renovation and modification techniques, you can transform your house and add to its appeal making it attractive and inviting for a buyer and get better value for your property.

First of all make sure that the buyer finds the answer to every question in the checklist above as 'YES'. Make sure that the doors and windows are properly painted or varnished. Doorknobs, latches and handles should be matching and should function without rattling. Ensure that the entrance to the house has a pleasing appearance and the interiors are immaculately clean and simply designed, but with a stylish appeal. Simple touch ups work well for adding beauty and appeal to a home.

It is said that first impressions are lasting impressions and also that one never gets a second chance to make a first impression. Be mindful of the outside appearance of your home and don't leave the gutters unattended. Make sure they are not clogged and there are no weeds growing out of them. The landscaping is equally important. Left untended, it can create the impression of an ill-maintained house that can put off many buyers. The lawn should be watered and should present a healthy green appearance, free from weeds and scattered dry leaves. By placing fresh mulch in flowerbeds, around trees and plants you can effectively enhance the curb appeal of your home.

Having discussed the physical details, to sell the house fast, realistic and competitive pricing remains a prime consideration. Florida real estate market has always been a buyer's market. A buyer would become interested only if the house is structurally sound, possesses aesthetic appeal and is realistically priced. The proper price for your home can be arrived at by checking the prices of similar houses located nearby or by getting an evaluation done through a real estate professional.
