Sometimes lake homes are not completely updated.  You may have been too busy enjoying the lake.  So many lake home owners are just happy living on the lake.  This lake home may be a second home to you.  You may not have had the money to keep it pristine.  It may not have mattered  to you.  A sunny day on the lake may have been better than painting the home.

However it's time to sell now.  Unless your lake home has so many negative factors it may pay to do some painting and re-carpeting.  I will tell you about a waterfront home I saw in Highland Township a few years back.  It was one of the newer homes that was built in the last 15 years on the lake.  The home owner never did the normal maintenance.

There was nail pops, some minor dry wall repair, and the house needed a paint job bad. The house sat on the market for 8 months.  I showed the house several  times but the feedback I got from my clients was....the house was built poorly or the house was overpriced for the condition it was in.  The house never sold when it was in that condition.  Well the owner finally painted the home and fixed the drywall issues.  The house sold in less  than a week after it was painted. 

So sometimes a fresh paint job and new carpet will do wonders for your lake home.  If you are thinking of selling your lake home give me a call.  We use the latest technology tools to get your home sold.  So give us a call on my cell at (248) 310-6239.
