3 Important Ways to Make Moving Less Stressful

There are only a couple of weeks left in 2018. As the year ends, and we head into 2019, many of us in North Carolina are starting to focus on our New Year’s resolutions and the fresh year ahead. January is just around the corner and those homeowners who are soon planning a move to a new location need quality realtors. The best agents find the best solutions. Our Flat Fee Realty agents suggest buyers make 2019 the year brings success and little stress in planning a move. Remember, considering how to reach one’s goals makes them more easily achieved.

Homeowners and buyers resolving to make moving less stressful in the new year need to consider these three important ways to make it happen:

  • Work with our experienced Flat Fee Realty agents: Navigating the real estate process can easily become overwhelming. Fortunately, working with our experience team of professionals means buyers and sellers will get the advice, feedback, and answers they need to make informed decisions.  Everyone appreciates our Flat Fee Realty agents, who have a wealth of experience and expertise.

  • Stay organized and clutter-free: Always, consider where belongings will go when buying a new home, and pack and label possessions accordingly for the move. Although people may rearrange a few things as they settle into their new home, packing boxes with an idea of where they should go will make unloading and unpacking less intimidating. The moving process is also an excellent time to donate, sell, or dispose of unnecessary and unused items that are simply taking up space. Preparing to sell or buy is the perfect time to reduce clutter in a home.
  • Enlist the help and support of many: From packing, to loading and unloading boxes and furniture on moving day, buyers and sellers should reach out to others. Request the assistance of friends and family if they live nearby. Otherwise, professional movers are also a great option. Buyers can ask their trusted Flat Fee Realty agent for recommendations to ensure their movers are experienced and will handle every one of the possessions with care. Having help on moving day will literally lighten the load of moving.

While the process of buying and selling a home in North Carolina can be stressful, there are ways to minimize that stress. Work with our experienced real estate agent, stay organized, and enlist the help of others. Ready to get started? Contact a Flat Fee Realty agent today!

3 Holiday Secrets to Selling a North Carolina Home

It’s late November, and the holiday season is in full swing. Thanksgiving has arrived and all of the holiday favorites line the end caps at the grocery stores. Holiday music serenades the most harried of shoppers. Even our street lamps are starting to get into the holiday spirit; many of the lamp posts are already dressed in green pine with festive red bows. While many of us across the Carolinas look forward to the holidays, we also can be intimidating by the thought of relocation and home selling. Fortunately, at Flat Fee Realty, our agents have experience with selling homes in the Triangle, Wilmington, Charlotte, and Lake Norman this holiday season and all year long.  

Let Flat Fee Realty take the stress out of sell and buying homes during the holidays with three helpful “almost secret” common sense tips:  

  • Don’t neglect holiday curb appeal: As the bright colors of summer and fall foliage fade to wintery browns, a home’s exterior may be less vibrant than it is in spring and summer. Maintain curb appeal and attract buyers by keeping a neat lawn. Rake the leaves and keep bushes and grass trimmed. Additionally, there is less daylight at this time of year. For buyers looking at houses after dark, homes without sufficient exterior lighting may look less appealing. Make sure prospective buyers see sufficient outdoor lighting for that perfect view. Finally, don’t overcrowd the home’s exterior with too many decorations and holiday lights; use just enough to enhance the beauty of the home, especially at night.  

  • Keep seasonal decorations simple and unique: Outdoor holiday décor is important this time of year, and indoor decorations should be planned as well. Too many decorations can clutter featured rooms like the den and the dining room. When in doubt, check with our experienced Flat Fee Realty agent to ensure the decorations are adding to the home’s appeal.

  • Work with an experienced Flat Fee Realty Agent: Working with our team will ensure every home is listed at a price that will attract buyers (without sacrificing the value of a seller’s house). Our professionals utilize MLS and other online resources which makes it easier for buyers to find a seller’s listing.

While Christmas and New Year may be intimidating times to list a home, there are several ways in which sellers can maximize the potential of their listing, especially during a time when there is less competition. Ready to list a home? Contact one of our experienced Flat Fee Realty agents to get started.
