Spring is in the air and pollen is on the ground. That means prime house hunting season is on in Charlotte and its surrounding areas. Thinking of making a move? We know a thing or two about selling a home (and by thing or two I mean a TON), and we are happy to talk to you.

According to a recent study by Realtor.com, the best week to list your home in 2023 is right around the corner (April 16th – April 22nd), and it’s expected to bring a significant boost in pricing. During this week, home prices are projected to increase by $8,400 compared to typical weeks, and an incredible $48,000 compared to early 2023 prices. Plus, with real estate listings expected to receive 16.4% more views, you’ll have even more potential buyers vying for your property. And if that wasn’t enough reason to celebrate, homes are anticipated to fly off the market 18% quicker during the third week of April!

So if you’re thinking of selling, it’s time to spring into action! Take a look at some of the frequently asked questions when it comes to preparing to sell your home and get ready to move into your new digs before summer.

How do I know what my home is worth?

Ah, the number one question sellers want to know. What is the value of my house and how can I get the most money from the sale? Very good questions. This is where the “real” in real estate agent becomes a huge benefit. We not only use comparable market sold stats but neighborhood information and sales trends to work with you to figure out the magic number so you can get to “sold” quickly and with multiple offers.

Why is staging so important to the selling process?

Staging not only puts your home in the best light for buyers, it could help you get more money. We can take you room by room and share my vision of how to make your home shine! Let’s chat about the difference between staging and re-stylers and when it’s okay to do it yourself.
