Have a great weekend!
If you’re considering selling your Charlotte home then you may want to take inventory and identify what needs to be addressed before placing your home on the market.
Put yourself in your buyers’ shoes. Enter your home starting at the front door and ‘tour’ your home as though you were a buyer. When a buyer is viewing your home, remember, they are going to be critical of every single aspect of your home. **Remember, this may very well be their new home! Does your home ‘flow’ nicely? Are your colors coordinating? Are all repairs made? Does your home smell clean? Is your home bright and welcoming? What ‘feeling’ do you get when you walk through the front door? Do you feel closed-in or is open, welcoming space the dominant feeling?
Even though Charlotte home inventory is low, pricing and preparation of your home are still keys to a successful sale.
Bonus tip for selling your Charlotte home when you do get it ready for the market: VACATE your home when potential buyers come to visit. DON’T be the elephant in the room! Your presence will make it difficult or awkward for the buyers to discuss their thoughts and feelings openly with their agent or partner. They will also rush through your home so as not to cause YOU any inconvenience with them being there.
What are home buyers looking for in a home? A move-in ready, well-maintained property. Let us help you prepare your Charlotte home for the market. Thinking of selling your Charlotte home? Give us a call and we’re happy to provide you a market analysis and free consultation.
