Before calling in a realtor, you might want to review how to prepare a home for sale in Bonita Springs. These tips aren’t about the realtor and her role; however, they are about you having the right mindset about your home sale in Bonita Springs, Florida.   To begin with, are you positive you are ready to part with your home and move on? Resistance to moving on is sometimes seen when a person has an unrealistic view of the home’s worth. Nostalgic memories of happy days spent in the home, as well as over-valuing the upgrades they’ve made over the years can cause a homeowner to see their home through rose-colored glasses.   Another sign of resistance to moving on is when a homeowner refuses to neutralize the home prior to showings. Sometimes they argue that they don’t want to change thing...

Putting a house on the market in Bonita Springs, Florida is not a simple task.  There are many considerations to make before actual contact is made with a realtor or advertisements are placed.  Aside from the major, obvious repairs needed to sell a home, it is important to pay attention to the little things as well.  To a homebuyer, the little things matter.  Preparing a home for sale is the hardest part of the entire process, paying off when the final closing is complete.   1. Clean From Top to Bottom One of the most important things to do when preparing a house for sale in Bonita Springs is to clean it thoroughly from top to bottom.  This includes the interior and exterior.  If the budget allows, it may even be beneficial to hire a professional cleaning crew to do the detail work.

While you might sell your home if you list it significantly above market value, potential buyers will more than likely look elsewhere. There is a golden number that will leave you feeling good about the sale and the buyer feeli...

For about 15 years I’ve sold real estate in Bonita Springs Florida.  I’ve seen a lot of buyers and sellers come and go and there is one solid way to separate real estate buyers from time gobbling, tire kickers, the dreaded “Call us if anything comes up …”.  There isn’t a real estate agent in town who hasn’t heard that from a real estate buyer getting out of their car and knowing they’d never see or hear from that person again.

New Construction in Bonita Springs So, I’m with home buyers in Bonita Springs and we are looking at resale homes and condos in Sterling Oaks, Spanish Wells and Village Walk when I suggest to the buyers that we look at New Construction in Bonita Springs. One of the buyers then says that he would never buy a new construction that would be built “behind his back”.  I’ve heard it before and I don’t know why I said it out loud but I did: You do realize that all of the resale homes that we’re looking at have been built ‘behind your back’ don’t you?

Queen Butterfly on Blue Mist Flower My son is a landscaper and owns a lawn service. Last year he mowed a little stretch of my back yard and accidentally planted all of these weeds, the Blue Mist Flower, when he took down some tall grass along the back yard.  It happened to be a blessing in disguise.  I am a butterfly gardener and it turns out that the Queen Butterfly loves  Blue Mist.  Since the weather turned cooler and the rains slowed the blue mist popped back up again.  I can't wait for my Queens (even the boy Queens, like this one) to return for their winter meal at Griffith Bed & Breakfast.
