Sell your Lake House on Norris Lake

Selling your lake property on Norris Lake takes preparation, organization and professional marketing. Here's everything you need to know to be fully prepared to sell your lake property in Tennessee.


Selecting a Listing Agent

A good real estate agent is worth their weight in gold during the home selling process. Be sure to choose an agent or even better — a lake property specialist who is an expert on all things real estate in your neighborhood and Norris Lake. The agent should know area lake communities on Norris Lake, what vacation home upgrades are necessary to attract buyers and all the intricacies of the transaction. The average agent won't have the detailed knowledge of waterfront properties in your area.

From marketing your lake home for maximum exposure to negotiating a price and closing the deal, hiring the right agent for your needs will get it done right!

Determining Lake Property Value

Determining the right price to sell your lake property is much more a science than an art. If the price is too high, your house is passed over. Set too low and you stand to lose thousands on the sale. When setting the asking price for a home don't let emotional attachment and other factors unrelated to the home's true market value end up influencing your sound judgement. Letting emotion drive up your asking price is a mistake that can end up costing you big in the end.

Some benefits of pricing your lake property on Norris Lake right include:

    • Real estate agents will be enthusiastic about presenting your property to buyers
    • Selling faster (because it is exposed to more qualified buyers)
    • Doesn't become stale or lose its marketability

The good news is that hiring a lake property specialist on Norris Lake with knowledge in the local real estate market will give you the facts you need to know to make an educated decision on asking price.

Lake Property Market Analysis

Performing a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) is crucial in determining the fair market value of your vacation home on Norris Lake. A CMA will not only provide you with everything you need to know about about your local housing market but will also include how much similar vacation homes are fetching in your neighborhood and whether you're dealing with a seller's market. Prices for vacation homes that have recently sold in your neighborhood represent what buyers are prepared to pay. Listings that have expired generally are overpriced or poorly marketed.

Hiring a listing agent with years of experience and knowledge of the local Norris Lake, Tennessee housing market makes him or her best qualified to interpret the data and make sound recommendations.
