When you’re ready to sell your St. Petersburg beach house or Tierra Verde luxury home, you’ll want to do everything possible to make it a space potential buyers cannot refuse. One of the easiest ways to do this is to stage your home so that all of its amazing luxuries and gorgeous architectural elements stand out on the market.

Staging involves preparing your home to look its best, whether cleaning and organizing or adding new accents to make it feel like a home rather than a place to stay while you’re away. When you stage your home, you’ll be able to show off the space’s best features, maximize the “wow” factor, and potentially increase the amount of money you receive for the house.

The right amount of staging can make all the difference. But…

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard about the seller’s market currently taking place around the globe. Seeing what homes are selling for in your neighborhood may have you wondering, “should I sell my home, too?” In this post, we’ll go over the top signs that it may be time for you to get your very own “For Sale” sign.

#1. YOUR HOME IS NO LONGER MEETING YOUR NEEDS

Outgrowing your home is very common — especially for first-time buyers who outgrow their “starter homes.” As your family grows, it makes sense that a house you bought just for your partner and you starts to feel a little too snug for comfort. Once your family starts growing, or your needs change, there’s a good chance you’ll want to sell and find a new home. Of…

Once you’ve decided “it’s time to sell my home” and done all of the work to put your home on the market — the cleaning, decluttering, staging, photography, and much more, it’s the moment you’ve been waiting for: selling it and having offers roll in! But, how do you know what makes a good offer? 

One with the highest price tag, obviously, right? 

Not necessarily. 

There are several factors at play that constitute a good offer. Keep reading to learn more!

OFFER PRICE

The offer price is extremely important and must be what you were expecting — or at least in the same ballpark. It’s important that you get a strong offer because you can use that money for a down payment on your next home or help carry you through retirement. Homes also…

Just because it’s a strong seller’s market does not mean you can throw your home up on the market willy-nilly, for whatever price your heart desires, ignoring all of the best home-selling practices of days past. Even though sellers do have the advantage these days, it’s still important to avoid these top five common home-selling mistakes.

#1. NOT HIRING AN AGENT

We know you want to keep as much of the profit from the sweat equity you poured into your home over the years and all of the sentimental value. But, selling a home is not as simple as taking a few photos and listing it online. If it was, the whole profession of real estate agents would not be around. Working with a real estate agent can help you sell your house for more money and faster.…

#1. DE-CLUTTER, DEEP CLEAN, AND DEPERSONALIZE

The three D’s start the home-selling process: de-clutter, deep clean, and depersonalize.

Whether you want to handle the deep cleaning and de-cluttering yourself or call in the pros is completely up to you. Just make sure all floors, walls, furniture, and every nook and cranny gets a good, thorough cleaning.

While you’re at it, throw away or donate any clutter you’ve accumulated over the years.

Finally, it’s time to…
