As we head into the busy selling season here in Palm Beach County, I wanted to give you a few pieces of advice when you're trying to sell your home. I've noticed a lot of people falling victim to the same mistakes, and I want you to be able to avoid these issues when you sell.

  1. Not thinking ahead. What I mean by this is that you need to look at what other sellers in your price range have done, and then make the necessary repairs in order to get top dollar on your home. Understanding what is expected will protect you from over improving and losing money.
  2. Don't get too trendy or too personal. A neutral home is the one that sells the best. Don't get caught up in trends. Avoid flashy colors like pink or red, and just go with earth tones. You want your home to appeal to the largest audience possible, and not everyone likes a bedroom that's painted pink.
  3. Don't add special accessories to outdated features. If you have outdated counter tops you can't disguise the fact by putting granite on them. The buyer will probably just want to rip them out and replace them with new ones. Either give them a credit or do the job completely. 

In the end, a pig is still a pig, no matter how much lipstick you put on it. If you need help improving your Palm Beach County home before you sell, please don't hesitate to contact me. I'm always willing to help you!
