When you’re selling your home in Lake City, your Realtor® will walk through and identify areas that buyers won’t want to see – but you can get a head start by identifying problem spots in your home before you even put it on the market.
4 Big Design Mistakes to Avoid When You’re Selling Your Home in Lake City
Design mistakes can turn off buyers and send them running for the door. These are four big mistakes you have to avoid if you want to sell.
#1: Popcorn Ceilings
Get rid of popcorn ceilings. Buyers don’t want them (they’re very dated), and when you remove them, you could uncover serious issues with the ceiling – or even the roof.
#2: Wall-to-Wall Carpet
Buyers don’t want wall-to-wall carpet. If they must have carpet, it needs to be new(ish) – but usually, buyers want tile, laminate or hardwood.
#3: Obnoxious Wallpaper
You might not think your wallpaper is obnoxious, but buyers almost certainly will. Take it down and paint the walls a neutral color.
Clean your house and declutter it completely before you put it on the market. If it looks cluttered, it looks small – and buyers want at least the illusion of ample space.
