Not advised when putting your house up for sale
Here are 7 Things Not to Do When Selling Your House seen out and about in Avondale and Jacksonville in general. These are probably things to avoid doing to your house. NFL Driveway: I am a huge sports fan and diehard sports talk radio listener, but spray painting a dozen stencils of your favorite team’s logo on your concrete driveway doesn’t make the neighborhood look good.
Blue Cabinets: Most buyers aren’t looking for blue cabinetry, so if you’re going to do some painting, stick with a color that works well for the resale market. Right now I see most owners painting their cabinets a shade of white or sometimes a darker cherry wood color.
7 Things Not to Do When Selling Your House
Car on the Lawn: I understand if there is no room on the street to park a vehicle. However, it does not foster a positive image for the community to park on the lawn in a typical suburban neighborhood.
Religious Messages: This one might feel a bit personal and I hope to not cross a professional line. Let your actions and words show God’s love – not your garage door. And also not painted on a wall in a room, as my neighbor has bible verses painted on her walls. This doesn’t really help a house sell. It’s fine to decorate with religious symbols and slogans during holidays and seasons because that shows pride and helps a neighborhood feel festive, but a permanent message is maybe a bit much.
Cut out crazy remodel projects
Custom Air Vent: If you plan to convert the garage, it would be a better idea to not run the vent through the Living Room to get to the garage.
Door to Nowhere: This is a door on the second story of a building with a decent drop to the parking lot below. Maybe the interior has drywall, so the door truly cannot be opened, but generally speaking it’s a good idea to have doorways lead to stairs or balconies. We see these in Avondale on McDuff Avenue now. Ugh!
