Get the Best Price for Your Home

by Sherri Green 09/29/2019

No two houses are exactly the same. Much in the same vein, there is no one-size-fits-all solution to ensure a home seller can get the best price for his or her residence. However, there are several things that a seller can do to boost the likelihood of enjoying a profitable house selling experience, such as:

1. Improve Your Home's Curb Appeal

Upgrade your house's curb appeal before you list your residence – you will be happy you did. Because if your home boasts an awe-inspiring exterior, your residence could stir up lots of interest from buyers as soon as it becomes available.

It generally won't take long for a seller to upgrade his or her home's curb appeal. For example, mowing the lawn, trimming the hedges and performing other lawn care tasks enables a seller to quickly improve his or her residence's curb appeal. In some instances, repairing cracked or damaged home siding may be necessary, too.

If you require additional assistance with home exterior upgrades or repairs, contractors are available in cities and towns nationwide. These professionals can take the guesswork out of home exterior improvement projects and help you bolster your residence's curb appeal in no time at all.

2. Eliminate Clutter

If your home is filled with a large collection of antiques, artwork and various personal belongings, you may want to put these items in storage. That way, you can show off the true size of your residence's interior to potential buyers – something that may lead to a quick house sale.

Of course, if you want to get rid of assorted clutter, you can always host a yard sale or list items online. You may be able to give your unwanted items to family members or friends or donate them to charity as well.

As you remove clutter from your home, it also may be beneficial to clean each room of your residence. Then, your home's interior can capture buyers' attention for all the right reasons.

3. Hire a Real Estate Agent

If you want to get the best price for your home, it typically is a good idea to hire a real estate agent. This housing market expert can offer tips and recommendations to help you enhance your residence's interior and exterior before you list your home. Plus, a real estate agent will help you identify and address home selling hurdles.

Furthermore, a real estate agent allocates time and resources to educate a seller about the house selling journey. And if you ever have concerns or questions about selling your house, a real estate agent can address them right away.

For individuals who want to maximize their home sale earnings, it helps to know what to expect after you list your residence. By using the aforementioned tips, a seller can prepare his or her residence for the housing market. And as a result, this individual may be better equipped than ever before to get the best price for his or her home.

 "Your Property, My Priority"

As a resident of Charlotte for over fifty years, I've experienced the Queen city's transformation from sleepy southern town to a crown jewel of the South. Educating clients on the local market and all things real estate is truly a passion. I love helping people move into and around my hometown!

I understand that buying or selling your home isn’t a simply transactional event, it’s a personal one. Each client’s situation is unique, and communication is key in helping you realize your goals. I listen to your hopes and concerns throughout the process, tailoring a plan to meet your needs.

Previous clients have described me as resourceful and responsive—90% of my business comes from referrals. I’m always available to you, and take care to ensure you’re getting the most out of our partnership.

Buyers: My extensive knowledge of Charlotte neighborhoods and the surrounding communities helps hone in on areas that would be a good fit for you. Whether you’re a first time or seasoned home buyer, I have the experience and knowledge to find your perfect home.

Sellers: Positioning your property properly in the market is my specialty. With unparalleled marketing tools and attention to detail, I'll see you through getting your home prepared, pricing, marketing, negotiating and closing.

Relocation: Whether you’re relocating for work, or moving here because Charlotte is where you want to be, I can help. Moving to a new city is stressful, and I work hard to ease the burden, helping you find a new home and familiarize yourself with Charlotte.

Over the years I’ve been awarded Five Star Professional by Charlotte Magazine for several years running and Most Valuable Team Player, as voted by my peers. Being well respected as an expert agent in the area serves you well as I represent you in negotiations. A problem solver at heart, I’m adept at finding the right solution, whether it’s in financing, negotiation, or finding the right property.

More personally, I graduated with a BA in Communications from UNC Chapel Hill. I've raised four children with my husband, Bill, and have one granddaughter. Cooking, entertaining, reading and dining on one of Charlotte's many outdoor patios are some of my favorite things.
