2. De-clutter and Dispose

It's important to create lots of space to make your lake house on Norris Lake more sellable. Be sure to declutter and dispose of any items from your kitchen and bathroom counter-tops. Pull up old carpets or remove area rugs to showcase your hardwood floors.

4. Furnish Empty Rooms

Too much space can sometimes work against you. Especially if home buyers can't get a good sense of space with an empty room. Staging a room with the right furniture can make it easier for buyers to imagine living in the space.

5. Curb Appeal

The more inviting the outside the more likely and excited people will be to see the inside. Make sure the entryway to your lake home looks pristine. A well maintained lawn and a little landscaping from your local home renovation store can do some wonders.
