Highlands NC Homes, Kitchens Remain Priority

Meadows Mountain Realty, Highlands real estate

Kitchens remain a priority for those remodeling Highlands NC homes.  The kitchen is truly the most popular room in a home, a place where people cook, entertain, and socialize.  In a world where creativity with food is a hobby for many it makes sense that the kitchen is a hub of activity.  Highlands homes with dated kitchens are far less attractive to buyers than those with a modern upgrade.  If you are considering a remodel to your home, with an eye on selling down the road, consider a kitchen update.

A kitchen update should look at high priority items like counter space, cabinetry, and storage.  Storage is essential in a kitchen, whether your are looking at pantry space for food, shelving and drawer space for dishes and utensils, or a place to store small appliances.  In addition, clean modern surfaces, new fixtures, and modern lighting make a kitchen sleek and attractive.

Contact the team at Meadows Mountain Realty today for more information on trends with Highlands homes. We welcome the opportunity to update you on current market conditions. Let our knowledge and experience work to your advantage for all of your Highlands real estate needs.

Highlands Real Estate, Can You Sell Quickly?

Comments Off  

Selling HIghlands homes

Meadows Mountain Realty, answering all of your Highlands real estate questions

One question that plagues many owners of Highlands real estate is can you sell your home quickly?  Every home owner loves the idea of selling a home the moment the listing hits the market.  Reality can be an entirely different story, however.  Can you sell a home quickly without pricing it for a fire sale?

If you want to sell a Highlands property quickly you either have to have something truly unique and desirable or an unbelievable value.  This can be a bit disheartening to the seller who cannot fit this criteria.  You either need to have patience, accepting that while it is feasible that your home may sell quickly it is equally as feasible that it may take some time.  Sit down with your Highlands REALTOR® prior to listing your home to evaluate a fair market value for your home as well as the condition of your home.

No REALTOR® can guarantee when you will receive your first offer on your home but she should be able to deliver a compelling listing presentation that outlines a marketing strategy.  Being prepared is a very important part of selling a home.  Contact the team at Meadows Mountain Realty today to learn more about selling homes in Highlands NC.  Our knowledge and experience can serve as your guide to every step of the selling process.

Buying Highlands Real Estate, Know Your Price Limit

Meadows Mountain Realty, answering all of your Highlands real estate questions

Know your price limit when buying Highlands real estate. Nothing is worse than falling in love for a home that you cannot afford because you may never find a home you like in a lower price point after that. It is essential to know your spending limit and look at houses in that price point or a lower price point.

If you are not certain of what you can afford it is a good idea to sit down with a lender and perhaps even your accountant. A home is a big investment and it is essential to make a wise decision when conducting a Highlands property search. If the home will be a vacation home you must also factor in associated costs like property management, association dues, and utilities in addition to money set aside for general maintenance and repairs.

Contact the team at Meadows Mountain Realty today for more information on buying real estate in Highlands NC. We welcome the opportunity to update you on current market conditions while helping you determine a list of criteria for your home search.
