Selling Highlands NC Real Estate, Dated Features
Dated features can have an effect on selling Highlands NC real estate. Common sense dictates that condition affects the value of a home. However, emotions can often get in the way. Many sellers are ruled by sentimental value. But, dated features are part of the condition of a home. As such, when a Highlands NC home for sale is rife with dated features then its price needs to reflect this.
Value is important
Value is as important to buyers as it is to sellers. While every seller wants to maximize his profit, every buyer wants to feel like he is getting value for his money. As a result, it is imperative that a seller understands what a reasonable price for a home is. This requires a professional evaluation. A Highlands NC REALTOR will conduct a comparative market analysis (CMA). The CMA will look at recent sales, current listings, and the location, size, and condition of a home. This process will result in a suggested value for a home.
Condition and dated features
The condition of a property matters. A coat of paint is one thing and an orange shag carpet is another. While many buyers expect to make some changes to a home, most see the extent of changes needed to be tied to the price of a home. When a buyer walks into a kitchen and/or bathrooms with dated features he knows a remodel is on the horizon and the remodel equals more money to be spent on the home. Sellers can decide whether to remodel or sell at a lower price.
