Wilmington NC SPRING MARKET Making A Move May be Easier Than Ever Before

Be the first to comment on this post

In this Wilmington NC spring market, making a move may be easier than ever before. Thanks to improvements in the real estate market, employment options, housing choices and personal finances, more people today are moving to where they want to live, not where they have to live.

In fact, moving today is easier than you think. Local home sellers are finding their priced-right homes selling, allowing them the freedom to relocate down the street, to the other side of town, across the country or around the world. Plenty of buyers are out there right now, taking advantage of our springtime temperatures and increased inventory. Many want to start their new life in a new home by the beginning of summer.

What’s moving today’s buyers? Job situations for many have changed for the better. (As always, employment is a major factor driving home sales.) One reason is that more and more people are working from home, and breadwinners are less tied to living near work. Now they have the flexibility to move to where their family wants to be located, where their favorite activities are based (think sports, outdoor opportunities), and where they have relatives and friends.

Don’t miss out. If it’s time for you to make a move, now is a great time. Keep reading to learn how to make the best move to a location that is the best for you!

What Comes First?

If you’re going to move, get your home ready for sale first. We can assist you with that task, helping you create a to-do list to attend to little things that buyers notice. Plus, nail down must-do bigger items that need attention before your home goes up for sale. Although some sellers don’t care to attend to these items, to get the best price for your home, it’s important to make your home an attractive, move-in-ready property.

BEST MOVE:

Take time to thoroughly go through your home and highlight any issues that a buyer’s inspection may later find. It is wise to remedy any problems before the home goes on the market. Additionally, we can advise you whether a home warranty would help make your home desirable to the greatest number of homebuyers.


BEST MOVE:

Bring in a home stager to make your home as close as possible to looking like a model home. Home stagers do a great job of using what you own to make your home’s spaces look friendly, usable and roomy for potential buyers.


BEST MOVE:

It’s often best to sell your home first, while you look but before you buy in your new location. This isn’t a hard and fast rule, but it allows you to know exactly how much money you have available to buy your next home. Shop while your home is for sale, and if you find that perfect home, consult with your mortgage lender to see if you can make the move financially before selling your current home. A bridge loan may help get you there.

Where Are You Going?

If you’re still deciding where you’re going to move to once you sell your home, you need to do some research…pronto. To judge places to live, it’s wise to visit multiple times to dig into the area, understand transportation and education options, the employment situation, housing types and costs, and true cost of living.

BEST MOVE:

Even if you’ve lived in a specific location before and want to move back, realize that time changes things. It’s still ideal to visit the area and confirm your move choice.Take time to research and make sure the move is a good fit for you—and your entire family. Yes, you can always move again, but as you know, it does require time and money to pick up again if you find you aren’t happy with your new location.We know our area well. We can advise you about the types of homes available here and their price ranges. We can guide you to local information that provides reliable details on schools, shopping, transportation, entertainment, outdoor space, you name it.If you are moving out of our area, we can connect you with a top-quality real estate professional in your new location to assist you in not only getting the home you want there, but the information you need to make an informed housing decision.Some online help is always valuable. Check out websites that provide school information, walkability, traffic and crime reports, etc. Many sites provide the information for free, but some require subscriptions to view details. Remember, we can help you with finding specific details on our local area—just ask.

How To Whittle Down?

If you’re making a move to improve your situation, you want to move with only what matters most to you and your family. Before you put your home up for sale, it’s important to start going through your belongings and categorizing what is most important to keep.

Create areas to collect giveaway items (for charities, friends, family, etc.) while you evaluate your belongings.

If you have items of value you want to sell, start early and don’t underestimate the amount of time needed to sell items online, through garage sale(s), auction or classified sites or even through nearby newspaper classifieds. Have a plan in place for items that don’t sell.

Decluttering can uncover a lot of stuff you didn’t know you had, but still want. Box up items that you currently don’t have room for and store them off-site, either at a friend’s or family member’s home or in a rental storage unit.

BEST MOVE:

When boxing up items for off-site storage, be sure to pack them well the first time. When you’re ready to move with them, you won’t have to open and repack everything to safely survive a longer move.


BEST MOVE:

If you are likely to replace large/heavy items, such as appliances, a dining room set, couch or bedroom set, shortly upon arrival at your new residence, you may want to sell or give these items away before you move to cut down on the hassle and expense of moving them. Look for a local charity that helps homeless and disadvantaged families.

Why Is It Dangerous To Overprice My Home | Wilmington NC real estate

Be the first to comment on this post
Why is it dangerous to overprice my home?

Sometimes sellers are tempted to test a higher price at first to see if they’ll be lucky enough to find an uneducated buyer willing to pay. Unfortunately, experience shows this “Why not?” pricing strategy rarely pays off. Instead, asking the right price from the start avoids the many dangers of overpricing.

The right sales price is based on several factors: size of the house and its special features and amenities, recent home sales, demand for homes in your area and prices of similar homes currently on the market.

Although you may have decorated lovingly or renovated extensively, those improvements may have only a small effect on the market value of your home. In fact, personalized decorating can even slow a sale unless the style has wide appeal.

Overpricing Dangers

Here are 8 proven reasons why it’s dangerous to overprice your home:

  • You will miss out on pent-up demand.
    Most activity on a listing comes within the first 30 days. An initial high price can discourage buyers – causing you to miss out on pent-up demand – or tempt them to wait for the price to come down.
  • You will reduce buyer pool.
    Too high a price will eliminate a whole class of qualified buyers. Many buyers know just how high they can go and don’t even look at homes priced above their ceiling.
  • You might turn off buyers.
    You may experience few or no showings because some prospective buyers who can afford the price won’t waste time with an overpriced listing. They know they can get more house for their money elsewhere.
  • You could sell the competition.
    Overpricing helps sell other, more competitively priced homes first. Your home may be compared to underscore what a good deal another home is.
  • You could frustrate prospects.
    Prospective buyers who might stretch their best offer can become frustrated when they can’t buy the home they want at a fair market value – only because an unreasonable seller insists on accepting only a premium price.
  • You will frustrate your own timetable.
    You could become frustrated, too, when your house fails to sell in a reasonable amount of time, leaving your plans in limbo. Only a price reduction is likely to help sell your house faster and meet your “move out” timetable.
  • You will raise doubts about hidden problems.
    If your overpriced house stays on the market for a long time, it may eventually be seen as “stale inventory” which can suggest structural or mechanical shortcomings, even after you lower your price.
  • You will risk lender rejection.
    If you do get a sales contract, the contract may fall through because of a too-low appraisal. The buyer may not be able to borrow enough to proceed with closing.

If you are thinking of selling your house, give us a call or send an e-mail. We’ll be happy to maximize your return by helping you set the right price.

De-Clutter Your Lifestyle | Getting the Most Out of a Garage Sale

Be the first to comment on this post

A really productive garage sale takes a bit more than stapling up a sign and opening the garage doors. As long as you’re holding a sale at all, make it as big as you can. If you can persuade neighbors to join you in a sale effort, so much the better. Here are some tips that will help you get the most out of your efforts: Rocking Chair

  • Go through your whole house, sorting out items you can do without. Be ruthless. Plan for the sale to run at least two days; weekends are ideal.
  • Advertise ahead of time: Place an ad in your local paper. Distribute fliers. Stick notices on store bulletin boards and street posts (where permitted). Tell your friends and neighbors you’ll be selling your “dear old rocker,” etc. Ask friends to come and assist you on sale days.
  • Price your things sensibly (considering the market value of a new item plus the age and condition of your sale item). Polish, clean, repair or mend everything for sale. Mark the price for each item in bold print and expect some bargaining from buyers.
  • Clean up the garage or yard and provide good lighting. Place your sale items on tables spaced for easy passage throughout the garage. Put key items (furniture, appliances, antiques, attractive toys, etc.) up front and clearly visible from the street. Hang clothes on racks and make a screened dressing room available for try-ons.
  • For your grand opening, float balloons in your yard near the street, stretch streamers around your garage door and hang wind chimes here and there. Provide a low-key musical background. Set up a free refreshment stand. Clear the curbside and drive for parking.
  • Have cash on hand to make change. Accept checks drawn only on local banks and require two IDs.

Have a nice sale! We have information to help you in many ways as you contemplate relocation. Call or e-mail us and put our expertise to work for you.  Anything left over? Donate it.  There is a need out there for everything.  Visit www.cbbaker.com for more Wilmington NC real estate guidance.

25 Reasons to Love Wilmington NC

Be the first to comment on this post

1. Beautiful Beaches and Waterways

Wilmington NC is situated on the southeast coast of NC and is bordered on the east by the Atlantic Ocean and the west by the Cape Fear River. The beauty and charm of Wilmington and the surrounding beaches equal or surpass any on the east coast. The many pristine beaches that we have to enjoy such as Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach, Kure Beach, Topsail Beach, Oak Island and Ocean Isle Beach are sure to captivate your heart.

 

2. Boating

The area’s many miles of coastline, rivers and sounds offer a variety of  watersports, boating activities, and quite a few harbors, marinas, and yacht clubs.

3. Fishing

Being located within minutes of one of the most protected inlets on the east coast, Wilmington offers bountiful fishing opportunities within minutes. Masonboro Inlet is located between the Southern tip of Wrightsville Beach and Masonboro Island. Also, the many creeks and bays located off banks channel and the waterways are a fisherman’s dream. You will see them fishing for drum, trout, and  flounder in the fall of the year.

3. Masonboro Island

 

Masonboro Island is an 8 mile long uninhabited island on the southern North Carolina coast between Wrightsville Beach and Carolina Beach and is part of the National Estuarine Research Reserve. Masonboro Island, only accessible by boat, is enjoyed by campers, surfers, anglers, and bird-watchers alike. The reserve consists of about 5000 acres, which about 4400 acres are tidal marsh and mud flats. The most northern end at Masonboro Inlet is the most popular area with its sandy beaches and protected waters. Any summer weekend you will see many boaters and campers prepared for a few days on the beach with tents, grills and water toys in tow.

4. Historic Downtown Wilmington NC

Wilmington is blessed with a beautiful and extensive historic district with magnificent and stately oaks, azaleas and oleanders. 230 blocks of downtown are on the The National Register of Historic Districts. The city embraces a lot of history and is fortunate that so much has been preserved.
