No home seller wants their home to linger on the market but there can be a number of reasons that someone may have to sell their Western North Carolina house as quickly as possible.  Selling your home quickly doesn’t have to be an impossible endeavor.  Here are a few tips to consider to have your home ready for a fast sale:

Stage Your Home Properly

•Pack up all of your personal memorabilia. The potential buyers don’t need to see your life in the house, they need to be able to visualize their life in the house. Put away any objects you do not need on a daily basis. Books, pictures, personal décor, and other knick knacks that once added familiarity to your home may now appear as clutter to potential buyers. Arrange closets and cabinets to portray a spacious, neat, and orderly appearance.

•As the seller you need to sell the idea that your house is well maintained. Clean every square inch of the house until it shines. Make small repairs as you go along, patch the nail holes, put up fresh paint, fix the squeaky door. Again it’s in the attention to detail!

Cut That Price

•For a quick sale of your home, consider starting your listing price at about 10% below its estimated value. This will make your home competitive and grab the attention of buyers. Starting with a lower price is more effective than continually reducing the price, which can create a perception in the market that nobody wants your property.

Do Your Research

•Get an appraisal and inspection ahead of time, which you can offer at each showing. This will build confidence with your buyers, since you will be providing the hard facts up front and you will show there is nothing to hide.

•Include receipts and/or documentation of repairs done on the home, as well as any new appliances that may have been purchased.

So you’re ready to take advantage of all that that Western North Carolina has to offer its residents and buy a home here in the Asheville or Brevard area …As a home buyer you’ll need to think about whether you should purchase an existing home or build a new one. How do you decide which is the better choice? You’ll need to consider your budget, your lifestyle and your everyday needs.

Building a new home can be exciting, however, starting from scratch on all the decorating needs can be time-consuming and can become overwhelming. Existing home sellers have usually done small updates and neutralized interior design elements prior to putting their home on the market, so although you may want to add your own personal touch to your new home, much of it can be done incrementally.

Do you want to be close to amenities? You’re likely to find more existing homes closer to town providing easier access to jobs, shopping, entertainment, and other ammenities. New housing tends to be in the outskirts of town so you will have to consider whether the drive into town to get to that favorite doctor or grocer is worth the additional time and expense.

Consider too that existing homes cost less per square foot than new homes. Existing homes are often in mature neighborhoods and frequently are not part of a larger home-owner’s group. Outlying areas tend toward higher taxes, assessment fees and land costs, however, existing homes are often in need of some maintenance and tend to be less energy efficient, so while you may not be paying monthly home-owner’s fees, that may be offset by higher energy and utility costs.

It’s still a buyers’ market, although home prices have slowly risen in selected areas. So if your personal economics make you ready to take the plunge, consider what will make you and your family happy and what will make your house a home.

Fall is in the air, and if you are like a lot of Western North Carolina home owners, the urge to bring a little of the magic of fall indoors is almost irresistable.  There are lots of ways to update your living space to reflect the splendor of Fall.  It doesn’t take a lot of money or time to create a warm sense of home and hearth indoors.

When thinking about color, use hues and tones that mirror the vibrant splashes of colors you see during this season.  Think about changing up your home décor with a new coat of paint or accessories to complement your current pallet.  Consider using golds, chocolates and bronzes for a warmer feel, or work in jewel tones to add a sense of richness and luxury to your room.  A new space rug or wall hanging can completely transform your room’s look.

Layering and texturing can also work to add warmth and comfort to a room.   Try adding a new throw to your current chair, or textural pieces like suede pillows or cashmere blankets to a bed.  Wall treatments like textured wallpaper can also add variety and a bit of a warm dimension to any room.  If you have  a fireplace, play up this focal point in a room to reflect the sights and sounds of the season.  Add seasonal yet decorative touches to the mantle (pine cones, cinnamon brooms, etc.) to complete your look.

Fall comes to the kitchen too, so don’t forget to switch over your accessories to match!  New towels, pot holders, window and table treatments, and other homey touches are easy things to add to increase the Autumnal feel of your home’s hub.  Mini pumpkins, gourds and seasonal fruit and flowers also add to the ambience.  When it comes to decorating for Fall, your only limitation is your imagination!  Have fun!
