Seven Things to Consider Before Listing Your Knoxville Home

You have decided that you are going to sell your home.  While your home may work just as it is for you and your family and you don’t want to invest any more time or money into your property, there are a few necessary steps that every homeowner should take to ensure that their home will sell quickly and at the highest price possible.

 

Contact me and I will give you advice on what your property’s potential value may be, what improvements your home needs to get the best price, and the best strategy to use to market your home.

 

Have Your Home Professionally Cleaned-While this may seem like an unnecessary expense, it can give your home that fresh appearance that really appeals to potential buyers.

 

Make All Necessary Minor Repairs-This is an inexpensive way to give your home a finished look and will convince potential buyers that the home is in good repair.  This includes fixing any damage to walls and ceilings, installing new faucets or lighting fixtures, and making any cosmetic changes to the kitchen and bathrooms that will give your property a modern appearance.

 

Clear The Clutter-Giving your home an open and clean appearance can definitely make a huge difference in attracting buyers.  Be sure you tidy any messy areas of the home, and depersonalize it by removing most photos and any items or collections that may distract buyers during open houses or while looking at pictures of your home.

 

Look At Your Home From A Buyer’s Perspective-Because you are use to it, sometimes you may not notice small imperfections or areas of your home that seem not to flow with the rest of the house.  Try to take a walk through your home and on your property with fresh eyes, and be as critical as you would be if you were looking to buy your home again.

 

Make Repairs To The Exterior-Don’t forget the front and back yards, as well as the roof and brick or siding of your home, when making repairs to your property.  Your investment is always worth it, and creating curb appeal can really make a difference in attracting buyers.

 

Consider More Major Renovations If Necessary-If your kitchen or bathroom is very outdated or in bad repair, or you have electrical, plumbing, or water problems in your home, these are all issues that can really stall the sale of your property.  Fixing these problems will usually not only make your home sell more quickly, but will also increase the value of your home far beyond the expense associated with making the repairs in the first place.

 

An updated, well taken-care-of home, does not stay on the market for long. If you are considering selling your Knoxville home, call me today at 865-588-3232.

Time to Turn Back Our Clocks

Yes, it’s that time of year, when we get an extra hour of sleep, or an extra hour of partying, which ever you prefer.  Saturday night, it’s time to turn back our clocks as Daylight Savings Time comes to an end for this year.

5 Reasons You Should Retire to Knoxville TN

Top 5 RetireEarlier this week, Kiplinger published their most recent review of all 50 states for retirees, and decided that Tennessee is the 4th Top Place to live for retirees. Yeah! But I could have told you that. Okay, I admit I am biased, but while the Kiplinger article/slideshow specifically points to Chattanooga, let me tell you the top 5 reasons you should retire to Knoxville TN.

Outdoor activities. We have a wide variety or outdoor activities ranging from biking, hiking, boating to walking. There are numerous parks, Greenways to walk, or Ijams Nature Center to visit. If you can dream it up, I would bet we already have it here. And, if you are used to 4 distinct seasons, we have that here too, only on a more mild scale from northern states.

The Arts. I’m not going to beat around the bush here, Knoxville has a very diverse arts and music scene. You can catch some free shows on Market Square (the downtown hub for dining, shopping and nightlife) to paid shows. There are theaters and museums to visit, and no lack of diversity in the type of music, dance or art preformed or shown.

Sports. If sports is your thing, Knoxville has you covered. From college sports to watch and support, to baseball, basketball, ice hockey, swimming and rowing. There are numerous clubs you can join for your favorite sport.

Taxes. As the Kiplinger piece noted, yes Tennessee is a tax-friendly state for retirees, but here is their breakdown just for clarification. Yes, you will notice differences in the taxes here from other states, but in the long-run, you will be a head of the game in savings on taxes compared to most other states.

Community. Yes, community. One of the greatest things about Knoxville is the community atmosphere on many different levels. From neighborhood community, to spiritual community, and local community. The feeling of community can be incredible, and, if needed, a helping hand is often offered, even if that helping hand is to offer suggestions. The folks here are incredible.

 

I have listed various things in Knoxville TN, there is much more if you include the surrounding areas, that would make this post too long to read. The short answer is Knoxville TN is a great place to retire.
