When it comes to selling Highlands real estate, if your home is smart let it be known.  Smart features are a draw for potential buyers who see smart features equaling a modern home with the latest and greatest in technological upgrades.  Smart homes can not only make life easier for its inhabitants but also allow homeowners access to their Highlands homes from afar.

A recent study found that homeowners most prefer smart security systems in homes.  These systems can allow close monitoring of homes, a bonus for owners of vacation homes in Highlands NC who may want to know who is coming and going from their homes not to mention allowing access to certain people at certain times.  From setting alarms to providing timed entry access and everything in between, security systems for homes are certainly becoming smarter.

Highlands real estate

Meadows Mountain Realty, Highlands real estate

When it comes to Highlands NC homes maintenance pays.  Taking care of your investment helps capitalize on your return when it comes time to sell.  While many think of a home inspection as something you complete when purchasing a home, conducting one yourself each year or having a professional inspect your Highlands home every few years can certainly prove beneficial.  From painting the exterior and maintaining your landscaping to keeping an eye on your HVAC system and caring for your appliances, if you can take care of your home you are improving your resale value at the same time.

Care and maintenance items for your Highlands home include:

  • Examine the roof to ensure that shingles or roof tiles remain in place and no leaks or holes are evident.
  • Check window and door seals to make sure there is no water damage and that no water  and no air is leaking in or out.
  • Check your foundation.
  • Check for insects and rodents.

These are but a few items to keep in mind when doing a once-over of your Highlands home.  Many second homeowners in the area have property managers in place to ensure that their homes stay in good working order.  Click here to read “Is Your Home Older Than Its Years?” from House Logic, for more information on how to maintain your home.
