LA CASA REAL ESTATE, INC .
Submitted by Marilyn Kulibert, President
We get questions all the time like “Why doesn’t my house sell and the one down the street was sold after only a month?” There are a lot of factors entering into a buyer’s choice of a home in La Casa.
They have to like the floor plan of the home and the location in the park. Sometimes it is the screened lanai that makes one more desirable than another. People have to visualize their belongings in your space. It helps if you don’t have too many extra things around so they can see the space better. If the house is spotless and well maintained, they will feel that the roof, air conditioner, etc. are also well maintained. Are the windows clean? Is the carpet spot free? Does the house smell good? You never know what turns a buyer off. Why take a chance?
Look around at some of the other houses – can somebody move in without doing a lot of repair work or remodeling? Most people want to just move in and start living the Florida lifestyle. All these things are part of a buyer’s decision to make an offer on your house. One of the important factors would be the price of your home. The staff at the LCRE office can tell you if your price is in line with homes like yours that have sold this past year. Stop by and talk to them.
