Selling your home may seem to be filled with paperwork, marketing, and open houses. And when owners list their property, the focus is often on price, what photos to take, and whether to put the dog out of the way when buyers come over.

Those things are big parts of the process, but the most important work is often done before you sign a listing agreement.

We took that message to residents of Pelican Marsh for an amazing community event on November 11 - a Design Event!  Tatyana Sallee and I, with the help of Interiors by Agostino’s, were honored to spend time talking about the local market, how to get your home ready to sell, and design options with homeowners.

Makeover or Face-lift?

Depending on the age of your home, your budget, and when you plan on selling your home, you may need to make a few cosmetic changes like painting walls or changing your flooring. If it’s been years since you’ve done a fabulous remodel, especially in the kitchen, now may be the time. The question you have to answer for yourself is whether your home needs a makeover or a face-lift - or both.

Even if you don’t plan on selling anytime soon, small touches and big changes can help you fall in love with your home all over again. That’s why we love working with Interiors by Agostino’s because they’re not just a fine art and furniture boutique, but also interior designers who can help you put finishing touches on every room in your home.

We Love Sharing What We Know

Pelican Marsh is a great community, and we were thrilled to speak to the residents and share tips, tricks, and information with them. Hopefully, we’ve given people something to consider and a plan to move forward before they sell or if they’re looking at the long term financial investment they can make in their home.

We’d love to spend time sharing this great information with your neighborhood or community, too. If you’ve got an event coming up, we’re happy to talk about the real estate market in Naples and share ideas that really work to help you get your home ready for sale. Private meetings and consultations are available, too to get personalized, one-on-one help before you list your home.
