When you’re selling your home in Lake City, it’s important that you work closely with your Realtor® to make sure it appeals to the widest variety of potential buyers. That applies whether you’re staging a home with pets or you need to make a few quick fixes—and it especially applies when it comes to staging.
However, there are a couple of things that can really mess up your sale… and you should steer clear of them at all costs.
5 Huge Mistakes That Will Send Buyers Running (Away!)
#1: Putting carpet over hardwoods. Who doesn’t like hardwood floors? If a buyer wants to cover them, that’s up to them—but you don’t want to be responsible for hiding one of your home’s best features. Even tired, worn hardwoods can be improved enough to add value to your house.
#2: Creating overly themed kids’ rooms. While it’s fine to have a pink room or a blue room (although you should repaint with more neutral colors if you’re able to do so), you don’t want to have over-the-top wallpaper or fixtures that buyers will have to remove.
#3: Keep pet toys, food bowls and other accessories out in the open. While your pet is part of your family, it’s not part of your buyers’ families—and if they have allergies, a dislike for furry friends or any other anti-pet sentiments, you’ll turn them off as soon as they walk in the door.
