Additional Tips for Selling Your Home in Frederick

When it comes to selling your home quickly, it is all about making a good first impression. And you know what that means: Curb Appeal. It takes a potential homebuyer just a few seconds to form a first impression of your home. So you have to ask yourself a very important question; “What type of impression is my home currently giving?

Despite being taught at a young age to never judge a book by its cover, that is exactly what homebuyers do on a daily basis. Sorry mom. Turns out it isn’t what’s on the inside that counts. According to studies, 85% of homebuyers will view your home online before even thinking about visiting it in persons. This means that if the outside of a home is unappealing, most potential buyers won’t even bother taking a look inside. So unless you want to try and sell to just 15% of your total market, it is important to put your best foot forward. More specifically, it is important to put your home’s best foot forward.

  1. Aesthetically pleasing landscape alone cannot only make a home easier to sell, but also add up your existing home value. That’s what we like to call a win-win!
  2. Consider repainting your entry way, fence, porch, and any other areas that could use a quick facelift. It’s amazing what a simple coat of paint can do.
  3. Power washing your siding can work wonders.
  4. Keep your lawn trimmed and edged.
  5. Trust Clagett Realty!

Looking for a Property Management Company in Frederick?

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

Property Mangement FrederickLandlording in Frederick (or anywhere for that matter) is tough work. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. However, it can also be very rewarding if you know what you are doing. Unfortunately, many new landlords find themselves in over their heads, which can not only be incredibly stressful, but could result in a bad tenant experience, tarnishing your reputation. The solution: hire an experienced and reputable Property Management Company.

Benefits of using a Property Management Company

There is no shame in admitting you need a little help. In fact, it can be one of the best decisions you make as a landlord. Below are the many benefits of working with a property management company.

  1. We know what you are thinking. “A property management company is just another expense I can’t afford.” Well, a property management company is actually a great way to boost your business and increase your profitability. How? Keep reading!
  2. Dealing with problem tenants is a landlord’s worst nightmare. A property management company will be able to help you screen tenants and weed out the potential trouble tenants. And if a problem does arise with a tenant down the road, your management company is there to help resolve the situation.
  3. Of course, then there is maintenance.If you are not local, what happens when something breaks in your rental unit? You have to drive all the way to the unit to inspect the situation and coordinate the repairs. A property management company can handle those tasks for you.
  4. What do landlords hate most about the job? Collecting rent! Your property management company will handle rent collection and enforce lease policies.
  5. When your rental unit is empty, you not only don’t make money. You lose money. A property management company can help decrease tenant turnover and ensure your unit remains occupied.
  6. And More!
