Making You the Most Money in the Least Time

Your first home in the Raleigh area was perfect when you first bought it, but now you’re ready for something else. Maybe you’ve since had children and need more room, or perhaps you’re looking to upgrade as part of your financial investment strategy.

You have a lot of wonderful options to choose from in Raleigh, but you also have to compete with other buyers who are looking to upgrade, as well. We’ll talk you through strategies for securing your home in some of the city’s most beautiful neighborhoods. We’ll also discuss bidding strategies that will attract the attention of sellers who will be considering multiple offers besides yours.

Questions All Sellers Should Ask

Let’s start with this question: where do you even start?

We’ll walk you through everything you need to know, such as your home’s current value, how other nearby properties have sold, and what a reasonable listing price should be. In addition to questions about financial value, we encourage you to think about some of the items in this pre-sellers’ checklist:

  • What repairs do we need to make or scuffs that we need to fix up?
  • What needs to be cleaned (possibly several times)?
  • Does our house pass the “smell test”? (It’s very easy to tell when the answer is “No”.)

It’s okay if you don’t know all the answers right away—trust us, no one ever does—but it’ll give you an idea of what you should start thinking about. We’ll also discuss what marketing campaigns we’ll use, how to negotiate between competitive offers, and what working with a buyer agent entails. 

You’ve got a lot to think about, but we’re here to help you every step of the way.

Looking to Upgrade?

Ask anyone who sold their house to upgrade to a newer space: getting that transaction to happen with minimum interruption is basically pulling off a magic trick! 

You need to coordinate closing on your previous home with successfully purchasing your next one, or else you’ll need to figure out where you’ll temporarily stay and where you’ll keep your furniture and belongings until you can move in. And that’s on top of the little things that this fantastic checklist from Updater recommends you think about.

Fortunately, we have a lot of experience in dealing with these particular issues. We’ll focus on reducing the number of hiccups you’ll face so you can focus on preparing your house to go back on the market.

Downsizing or Retiring?

Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: you used to enjoy working in the yard, but it’s become more of a chore than an enjoyment. Or, you’ve started to question why you need so many rooms in your home, especially when you spent a weekend cleaning those rooms instead of taking a trip somewhere.

It might be time to downgrade to a smaller home that better fits where you are in life or the lifestyle you want to adopt. Sometimes, people need more time to think about whether they really need to move, so we recommend this great checklist from the Family HandyMan to help you decide:

  • Your monthly expenses are becoming too much
  • You travel too often to enjoy your home
  • You want to simplify your life

If you’re thinking of downgrading to a smaller home, then we’d love to talk more about what’s driving that decision and the maximum value you could expect by putting your current house on the market. The right home for you is out there, and we’ll help you find it.

Sellers Looking to Relocate

We love Raleigh for more reasons than we can count, but we know that not everyone who lives here wants to stay forever. Having to take a plane ride to see your family can make you feel isolated, and you might be considering a move to be closer to the people you love. Here are some other signs:

  • You complain about your city all the time
  • You can’t afford to actually enjoy it
  • You feel that your bad memories in your current city outweigh your good ones

Moving is a complicated affair, but it can be even more stressful if you’re relocating to a different city or state. We offer hands-on service, whether you’re overseeing your home sale locally or from afar. We strive to make the transition a whole lot easier, ensuring your last memories of North Carolina are great ones.

Ready to Sell?

We’re ready to answer as many questions you have about selling your home and to help you navigate this process. E-mail us, or call us at 919-232-9222 to set up an appointment.
