Thinking about selling your home?
Before putting your property on the market, one of the first things that you have to do is to determine the value of your Candlewood Lake home.
Your home’s value is what a ready buyer is willing to pay for your property. It is not based on what you initially paid for the house or how much you’ve spent to improve the property.
There are many factors that can affect your home’s market value.
The neighborhood is one of the biggest influencers of a home’s value. A great home in a poor location can blow a significant amount off a property’s worth.
Is your home in proximity to public transportation, shopping facilities, and quality local school? Homes that are close to shopping locations, and ones with easy access to major highways, tend to sell for more than ones far away from everything.
Another key factor that affects the value of your Candlewood Lake home is the feature it provides. Today, more buyers prefer homes that offer spacious, flowing floor plans and high ceilings.
The age and size of your home as compared to other nearby properties also play a part in determining your home’s worth.
Buyers will also consider the condition of your home when deciding if they want to purchase it and how much they will pay for it.
If your Candlewood Lake home is in excellent condition, it has a much higher potential for top dollar than one that is obviously in need of basic routine maintenance.
Expect that buyers will check paints, floor covering, walls, ceilings, floors, doors, and windows. They will also be inspecting plumbing, electrical work, repairs, bathrooms, and kitchen.
When the market is full of similar properties for sale and buyers are few, you can expect to sell your home for less than you would if there were fewer homes for sale and lots of eager potential buyers.
Some home improvements can increase the value of your home. To make the most of your remodeling budget, focus on features that most home buyers really want to see.
Seller motivation is another factor that affects the offer price made by the buyer. The most common motivated seller is someone who has already bought his or her next home or is relocating to a new area.
If you have already bought a home in a new area you may be willing to accept a lower price to quickly complete the sale your current house and avoid the prospect of making two mortgage payments at the same time.
The marketing plan of your real estate agent will determine the amount of interest that your property will generate. In addition, your agent’s level of skill and expertise in the negotiating process will also affect the amount of money you’ll be able to get for your home.
It is important to choose the best real estate professional who will market your most valuable asset.

What Home Improvements Attract Buyers?
Selling a home is not as simple as sticking a “For Sale” sign in your yard.
In today’s competitive real estate market, if you wish to sell your Candlewood Lake Home relatively fast, there are some things you can do.
One of the must do’s prior to selling your home is home improvements.
Home improvements can sell your house faster, and it can even raise the value of your home.
They can range from simple DIY ones that have minimal cost to major renovation jobs that can be expensive.
The choice is yours.
The benefit of consulting with me before any home improvements.
But before actually jumping in and doing any actual home improvements, I suggest you consult with a real estate agent like me, Deborah Laemmerhirt.
We would not want you to overspend on home improvements that may not be even worth it.
Not all improvements can make your home more appealing.
Super expensive renovations do not always bring you a return on your investment, making it more difficult to sell. Also, you need to consider the value of your home, the value of your neighboring homes and the market trend in your area.
By consulting with me, I can help you decide which home renovations are worth it for your home and location.
What home improvements can you do to make your Candlewood Lake Home more appealing to buyers?
1. Improve your kitchen
Buyers love a modern and efficient kitchen. If your kitchen is outdated, you may need to upgrade it. It need not be a granite counter top, any stone counter top would do.
Check to see if your kitchen floor needs replacing.
What condition are your kitchen cabinets in? Are they in need of replacing?
Make sure your kitchen is clean. If you cannot afford to install new cabinets, at least repaint them.
2. Home maintenance
Check if there are areas in your home which need to be fixed or replaced.
Maybe there are roof tiles that must be changed. Maybe water is leaking into your home from up your foundation and must be fixed right away.
You may love the marks on your walls, but buyers prefer newly painted walls and ceilings.
Remember, for buyers, it is important to have a well-maintained home with sound structure than a home with luxurious kitchen and leaking basement.
3. Spruce up your front lawn.
A beautiful and well-maintained lawn is more inviting than a yard of dried grass. If you want buyers to be interested in actually stepping in your home, you have to improve your home’s curb appeal.
Make time to edge the lawn, plant flowers and put in new furniture on the front porch to make it more welcoming.
4. Update the lighting
Well-lighted homes sell easier and faster than homes that look dark and dim. Check if your home’s lighting is improving the look of your home.
Also, check if your lighting fixtures are new and modern-looking.

Have you been thinking about what you could put your home on the market for?
Like many homeowners, you probably wonder what the current worth of your home is.
Perhaps you are considering selling your property because of work or personal reasons.
Maybe you just want to know what the value of your home is and how much equity you have built up.
You are aware that different factors are at play in evaluating the value of your property, but has very limited experience with home appraisals. The different prices of other Candlewood Lake home for sale make it more confusing.
How do you get the most reliable home value report?
It can be very tempting to try one of those websites that offer to get your Candlewood Lake home value assessed in an instant.
You might have even already done so.
I understand. After all, those websites are free, and all you need to do is put in your complete home address along with your email information and you will receive a free report of the supposed value of your home. The appeal of an instant answer can be very attractive.
But how accurate can this assessment be?
Is it taking into consideration all the upgrades you have put into your property?
Was it able to include the number of rooms and bathrooms?
Do you think it counted the granite countertop and glass kitchen cabinet doors you installed in its valuation?
I believe there are still some things that cannot be left for a computer to decide. A least not yet. Most importantly, not without being to your home, checking its precise location, looking at all the upgrades and getting a feel of your property.
It would be unfair to give you an assessment of your Candlewood Lake home without close evaluation because it would mean disregarding the care and maintenance you have given your home. As a homeowner myself, I take pride in keeping my home in the best condition, and I am sure you also do the same with your home.
What is the best way to know your Candlewood Lake home value?
The best way to know the value of your Candlewood Lake home is to have it appraised by a professional real estate agent.
Because a professional agent has the experience and skills to assess how much your home is worth.
Agents and REALTORS® like me deal with homes and properties every day which makes us very familiar with home prices and how locations factor in. We also have tools like the MLS that can help us identify the average price in your area, but unlike computers that only focus on tools, we also consider the upgrades you did in your home. If you want to see other Candlewood homes and their special amenities, you can visit at www.CandlewoodLakeHomesforSale.com.
But more importantly, professionals like me are passionate about helping people find and sell their homes. I understand that purchasing or placing your Candlewood Lake home for sale may well be one of the biggest financial transactions you will make in your life, and I would like to help you make the experience as smooth and stress-free as possible.

Top 5 Easy Tips to Sell Your Candlewood Lake Home This Summer
If you want to sell your home fast to buyers looking for Candlewood Lake and Lake Lillinonah properties, you need the correct strategies so that you can sell your property in record time. Remember that summer is a busy time for real estate market.
Read on for some tips that will make your home stand out from the rest of the competition.
Revamp your home’s exterior appeal
When it comes to selling homes, the first impression is very important. As buyers look for Candlewood Lake real estate, they want a property that is welcoming. Since the first thing that will greet them is your lawn, make sure that your lawn and the flower buds do not dry up in the summer heat. Always keep them well-hydrated and mulched. You should also mow regularly and keep the grass trimmed. If there are unsightly brown spots, you can have these covered by colourful seasonal flowers. Giving a fresh coat of paint can also do wonders to your home, especially if the facade is already a little faded.
Be clear with your summer plans
Before putting your home on the market, first, you need to organize all your summer vacation and getaway plans. This way you can avoid conflict in schedules. Remember that timing is everything when selling a home. Your trusted real estate agent needs to know if you will be away or unreachable. You do not want time-sensitive offers to start coming in when you are out of town.
Get rid of all your clutter and junk now
As a seller, you need to be aware that clutter eats equity and kills deals. Before putting up that ‘For Sale’ sign in your yard, take time to declutter and free up space in your home. Assess each item in your house and choose whether to save, store, scrap, or sell. Once you have removed all the unused items, make sure to organize the rest. Be strategic and aim for a sense of expansiveness. Buyers will be naturally be attracted to a home that feels spacious.
Do a reality check
If you want to sell your home fast this summer, you need to have a reality check. While you may have an idea of your home’s value, these self-appraisals are rarely objective. There are many online home estimate tools that can provide you an automated value estimate of your home. You should also get to know the competition by looking at similar Candlewood Lake homes on the market in your area. This can also give you a better idea on the right listing price for your home.
Decorate with summer accents
You can attract more buyers to your home by brightening and transforming your living spaces. Look around your home for color inspiration. You can place a bright flower arrangement on the coffee table. You can also replace dark-colored accent pillows and throw rugs with eye-catching and bright throw pillows on the couch. You may also set a bowl of oranges and bananas on the kitchen counter.
Prepare your home to look its best during real estate’s hottest selling season with these tips. Make sure to check out www.CandlewoodLakeHomesforSale.com for more tips on how to sell your home fast.
