During her guest appearance on WCNC-NBC’s Charlotte Today, Nancy Braun, owner of Showcase Realty, talked about how neighbors can help improve home values in their neighborhood.
In real estate, one of the most significant factors that determine whether a property will rise or fall in value is its neighborhood. No matter what you do to boost the value of your property, your neighborhood will always have a say in your home’s worth.
All homeowners want to live beside good neighbors. Not only because it is a more enjoyable experience, but also because nice neighbors will not negatively affect the value of a home. On the other hand, bad neighbors can drag down the value of a property.
Nancy shared simple tips on how neighbors can help improve home values in their neighborhood. One of these is by improving your curb appeal. Homes with strong curb appeal can fetch higher prices. In addition, prospective buyers could make a decision on your house by what they can see from the street.
Nancy also reminded neighbors not to remove the agent’s open house signs. She emphasized that open houses help to sell the home in the neighborhood. The quicker it sells, the more money it will sell for. This in turn can drive up your home’s value.
Every sale that is close to you affects your home value. If you raise the value of your neighborhood, you also raise the value of any house you own there.
