Selling a home on Kiawah Checklist

Selling a property on Kiawah requires one critical ingredient: a Kiawah specialist.  With 350 combined years of experience selling exclusively on the Island, Kiawah Island Real Estate (KIRE) is the market share leader in bringing buyers and sellers together on Kiawah. To maximize your selling experience, a Kiawah specialist can walk you through the various components of preparing your home for the market.  Here are a few pointers that will help you get started in considering the sale of your property.

Curb appeal
Curb appeal is very important in shaping a potential buyer’s first impression of your property.  Studies show that a majority of buyers will not get out of their car if they do not find a property’s curb appeal visually attractive. Buyers associate the condition of the exterior and landscape with the condition of the interior.  It is crucial to consider the attractiveness of the property when viewed from the street.

Repairs
Repairs needed at your property should be assessed and you should decide which repairs are necessary for selling your property and which should be left for the buyer to determine based on their needs.  Most homes benefit from minor maintenance to make sure it looks well cared for and to leave fewer items for a home inspector to comment on.

Staging
Staging your home, or having a decorator or experienced sales professional make suggestions for reorganizing, repositioning, or in some cases replacing interior décor can impress buyers significantly. In fact, studies show that buyers pay more for staged homes.

Sales Time Frame
Time frame for selling your home is an important consideration when discussing price and positioning of your home with your sales professional.
