Selling a Home in Fayetteville, NC
I'm always so happy for my clients when we get an accepted offer on their home that I have listed for sale in Fayetteville, NC!
Yesterday, we received multiple offers on this gorgeous 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home in The Lakes, a well established and very green neighborhood close to Fort Bragg and the Fayetteville mall area. My sellers are so happy their home sold in only 28 days, and the buyers are so in love with this house that they could not stop calling to see if their offer was accepted!
As you can see, this is a beautiful home, and one reason it went under contract so quickly is because the sellers did all the work necessary to get the home in top condition, and they also priced their home so it was at the front of the market. And, it was marketed effectively so that the largest number of potential buyers could see it.
Selling a home in Fayetteville, NC is more difficult in today's real estate market. As I pointed out in my posts about the state of the real estate market in Fayetteville, existing homes in many of the popular price ranges are facing very stiff competition from newly constructed homes.
Fayetteville, NC Real Estate Market
The average Days on Market for existing homes for sale in Fayetteville, NC in this price range is 12-and-a-half months. For new construction, it is six-and-a-half months.
Buyers are clearly demonstrating they prefer new construction.
Still, a person selling a home in Fayetteville, NC can capitalize on factors new construction does not offer, such as:
- location--close to Fort Bragg and major shopping (most new construction is being built further out.)
- established neighborhoods--who doesn't want to be surrounded by lush green trees and well landscaped lawns, instead of leveled building lots and construction debris, with no trees anywhere near?
- Upgrades and improvements--many existing homes have been upgraded to offer features new construction doesn't within that price range.
Because we priced, maintained and marketed this home at the front of the market, we not only had a contract in 28 days, we had multiple offers! And, we have very happy seller and buyers of this gorgeous 3 bedroom/2.5 bath home for sale in Fayetteville, NC.
