Is it time for you to move?  Job transfers, downsizing, retirement may be just some of the reasons to move off the lake and sell your lake home.  If you are then you may want to spruce your waterfront home up.  Today’s home buyers want that fixed up, move in ready home.  They want the freshly painted walls, the granite counter tops, the new carpet, the refinished hardwood floors, the updated kitchens and baths.   Today’s lake home buyers do not want to see paneling, wall paper, or old cabinets.  Today's buyers prefer kitchens that have views of the lake, larger master bedrooms with views of the lake, and open layout homes.

You may not be able to change your layout, or open your kitchen up to get a lake view but you may be able to take that old wall paper down.   You could paint, or update the carpet.  What you do should be compared to how much the sales price will increase.   You do not want to spend $30,000 updating the kitchen to get $20,000 back.  You do not want to spend $20,000 to finish the basement if you only get a $10,000 return.

One of my prime examples of how a updated home can get a high price is:   In 2014 a small canal front home with no basement got $200 a square foot.  It sold at such a high price because it was pristine and totally updated.  It sold in under a week!  Other homes that were in need of work have been sitting on the market for three months or more.  Some of these fixer uppers could have sold sooner if only the sellers took a little time to get them ready to sell.

Here is what a previous client had to say about me!

"Hi Russ,

I wanted to thank for helping me get my Milford condo.  I know I limited my chances of finding the "perfect condo" by wanting a certain small area.  But you came out here whenever we found one.  It took me a year of looking but finally we found one that was the "one".  It was a short sale which I knew nothing about.  You told me about all the problems that might happen with a "short sale" and some of them did.  You were good about re-assuring me about the length of time short sales take.  But we finally got the condo!   Thank you from Courtney and I."
