Whether you’re making plans to buy a home or you hope to be selling one soon, springtime is when the real estate market in Holden Beach and surrounding areas comes alive. Homebuyers appear to come out of hibernation and start their search in earnest. Today’s buyers are more savvy than ever when it comes to knowing what they need vs. what they want as well as how much they are willing to pay for what matters most in a home.
You have one chance to make a good impression. That phrase could have been coined by someone in the real estate market. For those who are preparing to sell their home, first get it cleaned up, fixed up, and sparkling before it’s listed. The most likely buyers are those that come around when your property first hits the market. If your home isn’t “ready for prime time” you might not get another chance.
It's very much about what's inside. Once the landscaping has been finetuned around your home it’s time to focus on the interior. You know those loud colors that you just love? They will drive buyers away and they won't be back. When buyers are looking at homes they want to see neutral shades of white and beige. Easy as it may be, buyers don't want to buy a home that they will have to repaint the interior of just to be able to spend one night there.
Scrub, scrub, and scrub some more. Wash your front door to get all the finger prints off. Take a hose or power washer and spray off the exterior of your home to get the street grime off of it. Take the time to clean all the windows -- both inside and out. If these aren't projects you want to tackle then call any one of the window cleaning businesses and house cleaning companies in the area. They not only clean windows and exteriors of homes but also can power wash your walkways, driveway, patios and porches.
Purge the excess from your home. You may think you hear this too much but that’s because it’s true. Less really is more and it speaks volumes. Homebuyers don’t want to see that you’ve outgrown your house and that’s exactly what overpacked closets say. Remove at least half of what’s in all of your closets to show them as spacious. Brighten up those closets with a coat of bright white paint and a light bulb. These things all add up to a positive experience for homebuyers looking at your home.
While the majority of buyers will start their search online, when they're ready to view some properties they call us at ReMax at the Beach. As soon as a home is listed with us property photos are taken and descriptions are written. Be sure your home is ready to go as soon as it goes on the market. To get more tips on how to sell or buy a home, contact us at 800-360-9770. We’d be happy to meet with you and share our positive experience

If you’ve decided to list your Holden Beach home for sale chances are good that you’ve already put a lot of time in thinking about it and preparing for it. Once your home is listed the last thing you want to see is having it sit there, sometimes for months, without an offer. There are usually some pretty good reasons why your particular home may not be selling so do yourself a favor and heed the following precautions to avoid having your home become a stagnant property listing.
It is important not to overprice your home just because you can. Lowering your price repeatedly on a house that has been on the market a long time can be seen as a sign of desperation. As your listing agent we will help you achieve a price that is comparable with other similar properties in your neighborhood that have sold. Another option is to have a home appraisal done prior to listing.
2. When to List
Across the country the real estate market is most active during the spring and summer months, especially for larger homes. Couples with children want to plan their move to occur during months when their children are on vacation from their studies and can start fresh in a new school come September. Smaller homes with one or two bedrooms are more marketable year round.
Listing during the colder off-season doesn’t mean your home won’t sell, it just means it may take longer. Increase the temptation for those looking by adding buyers incentives. That may be paying the closing costs, giving cash back, increasing an agent’s commission or help with financing.
Let’s face it – some locations are just more preferable to others. Often that means a higher price tag. If you’re in a more affordable section of town, one that is rising up out of the ashes so to speak, there are things to do to improve your home’s image where it sits. Add security features to your home if safety could be a concern. Things like motion detection lighting in the front and rear yards, deadbolts on the doors and home alarm systems, are all good features to have.
Get to know your neighbors and establish a sense of community. Put a neighborhood watch program in place. Promote features of the location that may be close to public services like fire and police stations, hospitals, and dining.
4. Ready for Sale
If you’ve kept up with home repairs and maintenance, polished up the curb appeal, and overall have no reason for the next owners to have to tackle repairs and remodeling, you stand a better chance of getting your asking price. When your property is in disrepair, needs a new roof or its driveway replaced, the market you most appeal to will be investors and buyers with home improvement skills looking for bargains. The more repairs your home needs the lower you’ll find the offers to be, regardless of your asking price. The more repairs you make before buyers view the home, the more likely you are to receive competitive offers.
To give your home its best chance of selling quickly, it should be listed with a real estate firm such as ReMax At The Beach. In a popular location like coastal North Carolina, it’s important to have your property stand out from all the others that are also for sale. Allow us to use our professional experience to create a marketing plan that makes your home not just stand out but also sell fast.
Give ReMax At The Beach a call at 910-842-8686 and let’s discuss the timeframe for selling your Holden beach home so you can move into something even better!
