5 Holiday Home Improvements to Make Before Selling

Always have a game plan before putting your North Carolina home on the market; Flat Fee Realty offers five suggestions that will help boost curb appeal and possibly increase the selling price as we head through the Holiday Season.

Working with an experienced Flat Fee Realty agent in Lake Norman, Raleigh, the Triangle and Wilmington is a great way to get input on what improvements can be made. From suggestions about lawn care to how to stage furniture, our team is adept at preparing a home to sell.

5 home improvements to consider before listing your home for sale are:

  • Spruce up the landscape: Curb appeal with be the first attraction to catch a buyer’s eye. Make sure the mailbox is visible and not overgrown, replace faded or missing house numbers. Clean the yard of fall debris and add some color to the entrance way for great first impressions.
  • Replace or clean carpets: Unless the carpets are already new, they are likely holding lots of dirt and odor. A thorough clean or a fresh carpet throughout the house will revamp the entire space and impress potential buyers.
  • Small or partial renovations: Instead of investing in complete overhauls, consider taking on smaller projects such as replacing appliances in the kitchen or updating countertops in the bathrooms.
  • Fresh coat of paint: Many homes are bound to see scruffs and paint chips on the walls, so fresh layers of paint will do wonders to brighten up a space. Also, consider painting neutral colors (builder beige for example) over all existing walls to further appeal to buyers.
  • Update lights and plumbing fixtures: New faucets and sinks will dramatically change the feel of a space, so consider that for a simple project. Updating light fixtures is also a less intensive way to increase home value and buyer appeal.

For more insight regarding home improvements to increase home value, contact our agents at Flat Fee Realty today. We’re happy to help during each step of the listing, selling, and buying processes!

3 Big Differences with Flat Fee Realty NC Agents

It’s Thanksgiving! And Flat Fee Realty NC is expanding. We are grateful because we are growing not only in the Triangle NC, but in coastal Wilmington and Lake Norman as well. Regardless of where we have growing presence, we are committed to our buyers and sellers! It is important to share that many first time home buyers and sellers think that all real estate agents are about the same, with similar qualities and duties. Yet there is a difference between our FFR agents and others across the Tar Heel State. Our top goal is the client’s best interest.

Now, how do buyers and sellers in the Triangle find and choose the right agent? We only ask potential clients to do a little homework. Our real estate experts at Flat Fee Realty know just what to look for and we want to share the most important factors to consider when choosing an agent.

Flat Fee Realty NC agents offer three big differences in the North Carolina regions we serve:

  • Open Communication: Agents are required by law to have a client’s best interests in mind, and to put them first. Every agent who values open communication is sure to embrace this important principle; our team clearly and fully explains pricing, strategies, and market trends. Flat Fee Realty agents are always upfront with any hurdles or challenges that may arise. Also, since buyers and sellers will be working closely with our agents, it’s best to have an established relationship built on trust formed through open communication.
  • Key regions Flat Fee Realty NC covers: Buyers and sellers interested in residential real estate likely won’t find much value in an agent who does not know residential markets. The internet has also given our agents more access to larger territories, and we have the valuable knowledge of neighborhoods and popular areas that our potential clients want and need.
  • Quality references: Our team offers client testimonials and other references available for review. Buyers and sellers should take advantage of our references when possible because no one can attest to an agent’s quality as well as a previous client. Be sure to ask specific questions when conversing with references so they will provide adequate details.

It might take some patience, but the best real estate agent is in the Flat Fee Realty NC team. Call and meet us to ensure a great fit. Want more about us? Click Flat Fee Realty today!
