Looking to sell your home? There are many things to consider when selling your home. The biggest aid you can have in selling your home is having a seller’s agent who will work with you, help to negotiate price and terms, and generally help you through the process. We specialize in helping people sell their homes in and around the High Country region, and we know what an important decision and process it can be.

In the weeks and months prior to putting your home on the market, you will want to begin making necessary repairs to increase the value of your home. You will need to start making improvements to the overall look of the home, and make sure that all clutter is removed both outside and inside the home. It is recommended by our agents that you involve the expertise of a licensed home inspector to insure that all major repairs can be completed before listing your home. Completing any major repairs upfront and before opening your home up to the public can make all the difference in the outcome of selling your home.

Another very important step when selling your Blowing Rock real estate is to determine the appropriate asking price. You want to get as many people as possible interested in your home. If you set your home price too high, you may not get any potential buyers. However, if you set the price in a more fair range, you will get more qualified buyers. Your seller’s agent will examine the current market and pay close attention to similar homes in the area and their selling prices. In these changing market conditions, also obtaining a written appraisal by a licensed appraiser will give you comfort that you have priced your home correctly. Based on all information gathered, your Blowing Rock Real Estate agent will work with you to determine a good, marketable price for your home. With over 70 years combined real estate experience at Blowing Rock Real Estate, our agents can be trusted with making recommendations as to competitively pricing your home for the current market conditions.

Negotiating is a big part of the selling process, and our agents assist their sellers in being able to compromise without giving up everything they want. Negotiating can take place over the price, the terms of contract, and even home improvements to be made and by whom. A big job of the seller and seller’s agent is to attract qualified, interested buyers by being open-minded, but also firm and able to convince the buyers that the asking price is a fair one.

The biggest influence on getting your asking price, being happy overall with selling your home as well as the selling process is having a seller's agent that works well with you and keeps your needs and wants in mind. Your Blowing Rock Real Estate agent will be able to walk you through the process and help you understand all the steps along the way.

As mentioned above, the selling process can go more smoothly in the long run if you take the steps of getting a written appraisal, a home inspection by a licensed NC home inspector, and making any necessary repairs before putting your home on the market. However, don’t hesitate to contact any of the Blowing Rock Real Estate agents even if you have not gotten all of these things yet completed. We will be glad to make recommendations and assist you in getting in touch with the right people to get any necessary things accomplished to insure your home goes to market in the best state possible with all the important information for competitively pricing your home and effectively negotiating offers in your hands.
