So here it is, Springtime! And with it comes an increase in interest for the Smith Mountain Lake real estate market. As I was combing through the internet, I happen to stumble along an article that may prove to be some pretty sound advice about listing and selling your lake house. It’s from the LakeHouse.com website and seems to really have some great tips on getting that extra punch when showing your property and may be just the thing that puts your listing on the top of your buyer’s list! The article talks about several topics, including docks and decking, the boathouse, ‘staging’ the waterfront, area information, maximizing the view and even has some helpful advice about permits. Here’s a quote from the article just to get you started on your reading:
Many waterfront buyers are looking for second homes. They are often unfamiliar with the lakes or communities in the areas they have targeted for a vacation home. As such, it would be helpful to provide a map of the lake indicating the location of the property; assisting buyers in gaining perspective of the lake and surrounding areas.
Here’s a link to the entire article. With so many opportunities for the buyer to walk away from a great deal, why not take the time and a little extra effort to place your listing above the rest… it might mean the difference you need.
