Are you getting ready to put your home on the market in Lake Travis or the surrounding areas this summer?  The way you present your home is critical in getting the most money from the sale.  There's also things you can do depending on the season that will help as well.  Here's a few tips for selling your home in the summer that will help maximize your return.

Spruce Up Your Surroundings

What do they say about first impressions? It goes without saying that what a buyer sees first stays with them.  Make sure you clean your siding, sidewalks, porches, etc.  If you don't have a backyard deck, arrange some outdoor furniture to create the illusion of an outdoor space. Make needed repairs and paint if needed.

Show Off the Pool

If you have a pool, then flaunt it! It gets hot here in Texas, and buyers want to stay cool.  So make sure you keep it clean and add seating near it.

Turn Up the Air

If you have AC, make sure you set it to be comfortable.  Buyers want to know that they're not moving into an oven. But don't make it feel like a freeze either.
