Portland Oregon Real Estate – Learn More About the Red Flags Buyers Are Looking For

 

By Nieland Homes

So you’re thinking about selling your Portland Oregon Real Estate and are getting excited about moving up to your next dream home in Portland but, before listing your home for sale make sure you keep an eye out for the top “red flags” buyers are always on the lookout for.

#1 – Your Yard Looks Like A Jungle

It doesn’t matter if your home was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright buyers will be turned away from the home if it has bad curb appeal and looks like a jungle.

If you’re unable to improve the curb appeal of your home yourself consider hiring a gardening service to mow your yard, prune hedges, remove dead flowers or vegetation, paint fences, replace the old mail box and power the sidewalk or driveway if needed.

#2 – Remove the Smell from Your Home

Although you may not own pets, it’s possible that your home has “acquired” its own smell over the years and this smell should be eliminated ASAP by doing the following.

  • Paint each room of your home.
  • Replace or clean the carpeting.
  • Clean your home thoroughly.
  • Add plugin air fresheners to each room.
  • Add dryer sheets to the vents in your home.

#3 – Resolve Signs Of Water Penetration

Last of all, if your home currently has a water leak somewhere, or it had one in the past you should resolve those water leaks and signs of water penetration immediately because, water damage is a major red flag to buyers and a sign that the problem will cost them thousands of dollars to resolve.
