Choosing a Charlotte NC REALTOR® to Work with in 3 Easy Steps

Charlotte NC Homes for Sale - For professional and reliable Charlotte NC Realtor service that offers high quality customer service, turn to Nancy Braun.

The many roles of an agent

 Choosing the Charlotte NC REALTOR® to work with is one of the most important decisions you’ll make when you’re selling your home. 

One of the common mistakes I see many first time home sellers do is list their homes with the first agent they see.

Like shopping for the right car, you need to spend some time and effort to find the right agent who’ll work best with you.

The right agent can do so much, both for you and the home, so it is crucial that you choose the best one!

With the right agent, your home can sell fast for top dollar! The right agent can also make things easy and more convenient by helping you choose the repairs and upgrades which will add value to your property. And the right agent will take care of the negotiations and assist you with the numerous pieces of paperwork involved in selling your home.

Remember, your Charlotte home is your biggest financial asset, so you should choose only the best agent to protect your asset.

 

How to choose

There are so many REALTORS® and agents in Charlotte, it can be confusing choose one. Here are three easy steps to find the best agent to help sell your home. 

Charlotte NC Homes - Let Nancy Braun, Charlotte NC's best Realtor® guide you through the process of home-selling. so you can have a smooth and stress-free journey.

 

  1. Research. The first step in looking for the best REALTOR® is by asking for referrals from friends, neighbors, co-workers, people you know who have recently sold their homes in your city. 

An excellent REALTOR® leaves a great impression, and people will remember their name. You should also look for an agent with a strong online presence and with good reviews.

A strong online presence indicates that that agent uses technology to market the home and in the process gaining a larger audience. Reviews will tell you how satisfied or not the former clients are about the performance of a certain REALTOR®.

From your research, make a list t of at least three agents to interview and to choose from.

  1. Interview. When you’ve done your homework, it is now time to set an appointment with each agent. Your goal for the meeting is to know if that agent has the sufficient skills and experience to sell your home successfully.

You also want to know if you feel comfortable during the discussion if you can build a rapport with him/her. It also helps to have a list of questions to ask the agent, so that you can use yours and the agent’s time more efficiently.

What are some sample questions you should ask? Take a look at the following questions:

  • How long have you been working as an agent/REALTOR®?
  • Do you work full-time or part-time?
  • How long have you been working as an agent in Charlotte?
  • How do you plan to market my home?

Find an agent who has been working in the local market for at least five years. That’s not to say that newer agents are not skilled. It’s just that your home is your biggest investment and it is better to entrust it with someone who is more capable and experienced.

  1. Decide. Once you’ve interviewed at least three agents, the last step is to choose the best one.  Choose according to the results of your interviews, and pick the one you are most comfortable with.

Home selling can be stressful sometimes, especially when you are in a hurry.  At the end of the day, you need a REALTOR® who will help relieve your stress and someone you have a rapport with.

Doing these three steps will bring you closer to the right agent for your home for sale in Charlotte NC.

How Do I Get My Charlotte NC Home Ready to Sell?

Charlotte NC home for sale - The best of comfort, convenience and privacy are yours in homes for sale in Charlotte NC.

Organize and prioritize

Are you thinking of putting your  Charlotte NC home up for sale?. For many sellers, one of the most dreaded tasks is to prepare the home for sell. 

Cleaning, decluttering, and organizing your home takes up too much time and effort, and if you are busy with work, you may not have the energy to deal with it all.

But this step is crucial if you want to sell your home in Charlotte successfully, so you have to do it. 

Is there an efficient way to deal with home preparation prior to selling? Yes, there is.

Here’s a ten-step home preparation guide which can help you make the most use of your time and effort.

1.  Declutter. Clutter makes your home seem smaller. Removing unnecessary items can free up the space in your home, which gives it a more open look.

Throw out, give away, or put into storage any unused items. Decluttering can take up time, so it is best to do it long before you have the open house.

A great tip I have picked up is to commit 10 minutes each day to decluttering.

Use that time to go through rooms in your home and start putting things you don’t use inside a large black trash bag. Do this for ten minutes each day, until you feel that only the essentials remain in your room. Then move on to the next room.

At the end of the week, you’ll notice you have cleared a good amount of space in the different rooms of the house.

2. Organize. Once only the essential items are left, organize everything so it looks tidy and presentable. Home buyers like to check closets and drawers, so make sure that you also clear out those areas. When your things are organized, home buyers can more easily imagine their things in those spaces.

3. Depersonalize. Now is the best time to take down those old photos hanging down the wall. When you are selling your Charlotte home, your personal taste should not be reflected on the wall and in the decor of the home. No, there is nothing wrong with your preferences, but remember that it is the house you are selling, not you.

4. Clean. Cleaning is so much easier when there’s less stuff and mess, which is why it is important that you declutter first before you attempt to clean.

You’ve probably seen episodes of Clean House or Hoarders, and how drastic the difference is when the homes are cleaned.

For homebuyers, one of the biggest turnoffs is a dirty house. You don’t have to tackle the entire home in a day. You can do it one room at a time.

Or if you don’t have the time, have professional cleaners do it. Your home will look so clean and fresh by the time they are done.

5. Repair. There is no better time to fix that loose cabinet door or leaking faucet than when you are preparing your home to sell. Fix everything that needs repair, from the basement to the roof. You don’t want the buyer to find a reason to break the deal due to repairs that can be easily fixed.

6. Repaint. A fresh coat of paint is like an instant booster - it changes the look of the house. Paint can make a house look smaller, bigger, lighter, or wider.  In choosing color, go for a neutral tone. Beige, cream, taupe and white are among the most popular choices, and it makes a great base for a bold trim color.

7. The smell test. Each home has a unique smell. You may not notice it, but it doesn’t mean it’s not there. It could be from your pet, your air freshener, or your favorite food.

The best way to solve this dilemma is to ask a friend to come in and tell you honestly what your home smells like, then try to eliminate the smell. One of the source of offending smells is the carpet. Have the carpets deep cleaned or replace if necessary.

8. Sparkling appliances. It would not be appealing if your house is clean, but your appliances are not. Make sure to thoroughly clean all your appliances, and to organize your food inside the refrigerator. This may seem excessive, but you’ll never know if and when a possible homebuyer will look in your refrigerator.

9. Stage. This part is a favorite among many homeowners. Staging is fun and easy when you've cleared most of the furniture and appliances of your Charlotte NC home for sale.   Think minimalism when you stage. Think of the stunning photos of homes in various magazines and TV shows that you see, get some staging ideas from those. 

10. Curb appeal. Don’t forget curb appeal! A home with lovely curb appeal draws the eyes, and is very appealing to home buyers. Make sure that your front lawn is well-kept, trim the pathway, repaint the porch and front door and add some flowers to the garden for a pop of color.

Yes, selling your Charlotte property  can be a difficult real estate journey, which is why it is better to be organized. Having a time table and sticking to it will also help.

Call me, Nancy Braun, at (704) 997-3794. Allow me to help you prepare and stage your home better to get its best price when selling. If you are looking for new homes for sale in Charlotte NC, I can also be of help.
