Must I Update My Home To Sell It?

You have decided to sell the old homestead and downsize to that 55+ community in Florida.  Communities like Heritage Isle and Grand Isle (both located inViera) do offer a relaxed lifestyle with plenty to do!

It is a buyer's market so one must decide to sell "as is" or make a few changes.  When I get the question my response usually includes some variation of this...

Amazing how our world has changed through the years…even during my short 50 plus years!  Technology has brought us many things…1080p TVs,  Blackberry and I-phone, I-Pad computer, the Internet, man made materials galore (some not so good like double knit leisure suits!)…  

but some things never  must change!

Like the decor from the 1970s…I am not anti-1970s as they were some of my best years!

But, if you are trying to sell your house for the best price possible... get rid of the shag carpet, the macramé planters, the harvest gold appliances, the wood paneling, the avocado green decor, re-paint that purple room, etc!

These are not expensive fixes but rather quick staging tips to make your house more appealing to prospective buyers!
