West Knoxville Home Sellers: See Your Home From a Buyer’s Perspective

Scary HomeWhen it comes to selling your West Knoxville home, it can be difficult to see the flaws and quirks that could impede it from selling. You may have grown to love the array of garden gnomes that fill you backyard. Or, perhaps, your home has a paint scheme dedicated to the Tennessee Volunteers. Still, as the owner of the home you have come to grow and love so much, it can be hard to put yourself in the shoes of  prospective home buyers.

Here are a few buzz killers that can turn potential West Knoxville home buyers off:

  1. Bold, bright, and just plain scary paint colors. With so many great real estate deals in the West Knoxville real estate market, home buyers have a lot to choose from, which means they can be highly selective when it comes to choosing a new home. Painting can be one of the easiest and most cost effective renovations you can make when selling your West Knoxville home. The key here is to select paint colors that will make it appear to be move-in ready for buyers. Neutral colors are key.
  2. Clutter. Your West Knoxville home could have a great master walk-in closet or a super spacious garage, but it can be difficult for home buyers to see this amongst a whole bunch of clutter. Before putting your home on the market, organize and de-clutter you home. Clutter can be incredibly distracting and can take away from the potential home buyers can see in your home.
  3. Your home has the opposite of curb appeal. With beautiful spring and summer weather upon us, take the time to maximize the curb appeal of your home.  Keep the yard mowed and watered. Plant some flowers. Ensure there is not a jungle of weeds sprouting in the front yard. Make potential buyers fall in love with your home even before they step foot in the front door.
