Preparing Highlands NC Homes For Sale

Selling Highlands real estate

Preparing Highlands NC homes for sale can be easier than you think.  In fact some wise people out there state it can be done in four easy steps.  Easy is the operative word here.  Easy does not equate to quick.  Preparing your home for sale will take some elbow grease and time, but at the end you will have a clean and organized home ready for showings.

What are the four easy steps?  De-clutter, de-personalize, organize, and clean.  All of these steps are related and all of these steps will get you a clean, sparkling home as an end result.  While it does not matter what step you take first it does make sense to leave cleaning for the end.  Walk around you Highlands home and start getting rid of items you have not touched in months, if not years.  Start in the closets and then go to what you see visibly in each room.  Then pack away personal items that you wish to keep.  When you are finished de-cluttering and de-personalizing your home is halfway organized.  Finish the organizing and end with cleaning.  It certainly sounds easy, doesn’t it?

Contact the team at Meadows Mountain Realty today for more information on selling real estate in Highlands NC.  We welcome the opportunity to update you on current market conditions while giving a complimentary listing presentation at the same time.  Let our knowledge and experience work to your advantage to get your home sold.

Highlands NC Real Estate, Going Green Not Always Fruitful

Comments Off on Highlands NC Real Estate, Going Green Not Always Fruitful  

Highlands homes

Meadows Mountain Realty, Highlands real estate

Going green is not always fruitful when it comes to Highlands NC real estate.  Many builders and owners of homes undergoing a remodel choose environmentally friendly features and systems as a way of reducing their carbon footprint and simply being kind to the community.  In short, many people believe strongly in living a greener existence.  The choice to go green should be carefully considered when selling the Highlands property is on the horizon however.

Green options do not always pay off.  Certainly there are systems that pay for themselves over time, from geothermal technology to solar panels, time being the operative word.  If you will not be spending the time in your home simply having an environmentally friendly system in place may not add value, although it may add appeal.  Choosing your improvements wisely and making educated decisions is of the essence.

Contact the team at Meadows Mountain Realty today to learn more about current home trends in our area.  We welcome the opportunity to recommend reputable local lenders with experience in environmentally friendly construction.  If being green is important to you it will undoubtedly be important for your home.  Let our knowledge and experience serve as your guide to Highlands real estate.
