Thoughts on Selling your home!

Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda and North Port have seen an up-swing in sales over the last year.­ It’s­ necessary if­ sellers want to get the most from their home in 2015 in the Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, North Port area, to­ have it “move in ready”, one that will appeal to the sophisticated buyers that are coming into our area to look around for their dream home. Most buyers want a house with a newer roof, not needing repairs, an air conditioning that is guaranteed to work during­ the hot summer days, and updated features such as neat and clean kitchen and updated bathrooms.­ It’s a great idea if you’re wanting to sell your home to have a home inspection so you know if there are any hidden secrets before a buyer makes an offer and decides against your property based on his own home inspection.­ A swimming pool is a luxury, however, most folks from the north dream of having a pool in their back yard.­ Make sure that is bright and sparkling clean.­ Any mildew or mold around the outside of the home needs to be cleaned and removed.­ If your home is on a saltwater canal or even a fresh water canal and has a dock, make sure it is safe and not needing repair.­ Not only is a dock that is in disrepair not pretty to look at, but a huge liability if you’re having buyers looking at your home.

Since the competition here in the Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, North Port areas are the cities north and south of us, where the home prices are much higher, we can beat any area in price at this time with a well maintained, in good condition, home close or on the water.­
