Meadows Mountain Realty, Highlands real estate

When it comes to Highlands NC homes, decks simply do it, adding great appeal and comfort to a living space.  People visiting the Highlands area who decide to buy a home here do so because of the lifestyle and the appeal of the great outdoors.  Decks add living space and enable homeowners to enjoy the outdoors in a myriad of ways.

If you are considering selling your Highlands home take a good look at the outside areas surrounding your home.  If you have a deck or decks make sure they are in great condition.  Seal the decks if need be and stage them so that people can envision themselves enjoying the company of friends and family while enjoying the fresh mountain air and soaking in the views.

If you do not have a deck on your Highlands home consider adding one.  Many luxury homes in Highlands NC have decks that include outdoor kitchens, outdoor fireplaces, and furniture that would make many living rooms jealous.  Buyers want to enjoy the Highlands area to the fullest and decks allow for this to occur.

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.

Selling Highlands Homes, Great Time of Year for Staging Outside


Highlands NC real estate

Meadows Mountain Realty, Highlands real estate

Selling Highlands homes involves a great deal of preparation and summer is a great time of year for staging the outside of your home.  Careful pruning, planting, and lawn care can make the exterior of your home shine, adding to its curb appeal and begging buyers to enter. There are some simple tasks you can do to make your home pop.

Staging the outside of your home involves taking a good look at your landscaping, decks, and patios.  Make sure your outdoor furniture is in good condition, including the cushions.  If cushions need to be replaced or wood tables and chairs need to be stained or oiled then it is a good idea to take care of these maintenance items.

You can also stage the outside of your Highlands home by edging all garden beds and walkways and planting flowers.  If there is room for potted plants or hanging flowers on a porch that can be a great added touch.  The important thing is that nothing appear cluttered.

Contact us today to learn more about selling Highlands real estate.  Our knowledge and experience can help you understand how to best prepare your home for sale and get it sold in a timely manner.
