The Disadvantages of Pricing Your Charlotte Home Too High

In today’s housing market, home prices are increasing at a slower pace (3.7%) than they have over the last eight years, during which time prices were increasing nationwide at a 6-7% rate.  Low supply of listed homes and high demand from buyers has indeed, pushed prices to rise rapidly but, not in every price range and not nearly as high as they were, even last spring.
 
While home price appreciation over 6% feels like the new normal, it is not. This becomes a challenge when a homeowner looks to refinance or sell their home, … (5 comments)

Homeowners: Now Is A Good Time To Sell Your Charlotte Home
 
Each month, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) provides their Seller Traffic Index - part of their Realtors Confidence Index.

Selling Your Home? To Renovate or Not - Consider the ROI
 
If you have lived in your home for more than 5 years, there is likely an update or two that you could do to help add value to your home before listing it for sale. For the most part, at least in Charlotte, buyers are a bit more concerned about an updated interior but, there are exterior updates that you can and should do to bring you a higher sales price. 
 
The flip side of updates is the concern of the return on investment (ROI). If you make these renovations, will it … (14 comments)

We had nearly a month to pre-market an adorable full-brick ranch, located in a primo neighborhood on the fringes of Uptown. On Day-1, we had 40 showings and 27 Offers!
