Tips to Sell Your Charlotte Home

Selling a home can feel like an art and a science, but it doesn’t have to be so complicated. Little tips and tricks can make a huge difference when trying to sell your home.

Here are 7 tips to consider before trying to sell your home:

  1. Make a good impression by welcoming visitors with an inviting porch. Keep it looking neat and refreshing. If you have porch lights, turn them on in the evenings in case potential buyers drive by. If you have plants, be sure they’re in bloom.
  2. Keep in mind that most qualified buyers are working with experienced real estate professionals alongside them.
  3. Tedious tasks such as fixing a leaky faucet or touching up paint jobs may feel like a waste of time and money, but it will lead to a higher evaluation of your home and therefore a higher selling price.
  4. Make sure to have plenty of exceptional photos. When you shop online, what do you notice first? That’s right, it’s the pictures. Many studies have shown that images are more powerful than words. Poor quality photos can turn away potential buyers.
  5. Clear away your clutter. This will make your home appear more spacious and inviting.
  6. Real estate sales representatives are the only people who have access to current market information. While you can access reports, no one can approach the timeliness or specificity that is available to real estate agents.
  7. A lot of buyers are very focused on kitchens when determining which house to buy, so make sure yours is reasonably appealing.
