Crystal Torres Ramirez is a Realtor who works in Cedar Park and Leander. She offers advice for both sellers and buyers who are considering the area.

What projects should a homeowner consider before selling their home?

"A first impression is always important. Nice landscaping to have curb appeal, even small changes can be impactful. Check your house for things that are worn out. Carpets are the most common thing that needs to be replaced. Also, make sure to repaint walls with neutral colors. There are some easy improvements that can be very helpful; like patching holes and cracks in the walls and ceilings, and repairing leaky faucets. Replace any cracked windows and fix doors that don’t close. Thinking about doing a remodel? Focus on the kitchen and bathrooms."

What home characteristics are you noticing homebuyers are looking for in the area?

"Buyers looking in this area are especially interested in being part of a top-rated school district and Leander ISD provides that. This area is booming and there are several projects that will enhance the area’s desirability. Space is also very important; you can get a bigger space to fit the growing needs. There are plenty of parks, shopping and dining options. Cedar Park has an easy commute to Austin, and MetroRail makes an easy commute for Leander as well."
