Selling your home can be a great move this fall, especially with inventory still hovering around the lower end of the spectrum. You will want to take all of the necessary steps to prepare the property for sale, including cleaning clutter, boosting curb appeal, and finding the best price to intrigue buyers all across West Virginia's Eastern Panhandle. However, there are a few deal breakers that can easily turn away buyers in Martinsburg, Harpers Ferry, Inwood, Falling Waters, Hedgesville, Ranson, Shepherdstown and Charles Town and as your local experts, we have listed them below to help you avoid doing so!
Of course you love your pets, but remember that not all buyers in West Virginia's Eastern Panhandle will. There are many buyers that do not want to purchase a home with lingering pet odors or signs of pet damage like scratches on the floors or on the trim. Try your best to eliminate any pet odors prior to listing your home and if possible, take your pets with you during showings.
It is no secret in the real estate market that kitchens and bathrooms can sell homes— so how do yours present themselves? If your kitchen is on the small side, take the necessary steps to help it appear bright and airy. Clear the clutter, make sure all small appliances are put away and not crowding countertops during showings, and ensure there is plenty of light. If the space is outdated, you might consider making small improvements to help intrigue buyers.
Homebuyers in Jefferson and Berkeley County want a smooth transition into their new home. If you've recently replaced appliances like the furnace or water heater, make it known to your listing agent so they can tell buyers. If the roof was replaced, they will want to know that too! Any improvement where buyers don't feel like they are inheriting extra maintenance costs can help you avoid losing the deal.
