What's Shakin' in Charlotte, NC?


Sell My Charlotte NC Home!

Sell my Charlotte NC home - that's a directive that we Charlotte Realtors® often hear from clientsSell My Charlotte NC home
who are ready to sell their home and want to do things right!

But there's a lot that goes into selling a Charlotte NC home - a lot more than meets the eye.  Charlotte home sellers should first choose a Realtor® who is experienced and has knowledge of their neighborhood.  This is critical - your Realtor® should present you with a comprehensive comparative market analysis (CMA) that shows you what comparable homes have sold for in your neighborhood in the last 3-6 months, and what you can expect to net from your home sale.

Understand your Broker's Sales Statistics

When you say "Sell my Charlotte NC home," you need to understand that statistics matter.  Being on the market is stressful and inconvenient - you therefore want to achieve two goals:  sell in the quickest amount of time at the highest price the market will bear.  Realtors® will tell you, from experience (and statistics), that home sellers typically net the highest gain when they sell within the fist 30 days of being on the market.  This is why it is so important to understand your Realtor's sales statistics before you sign the listing agreement.

Savvy + Co. Real Estate List/Sales Price Ratio

For your best chance of a quick sale, if you want to sell your Charlotte NC home, you should make sure that your home is priced correctly to the market.  While it is tempting to "go for it," and have a pie-in-the-sky list price, remember that buyers, their buyer agents, and their appraiser, all have access to current market data.  Buyers will NOT pay more than current market value (neither would you!), so don't be tempted to increase your list price to "allow for negotiating room."  Your best chance of maximizing sales price is to price your home competitively and hope to generate multiple offers and a bidding war.  

You'll want a Realtor® who can help you price your home correctly from the start.  Check out these statistics from my brokerage, Savvy + Co. Real Estate - leading the way in pricing Charlotte real estate.

Savvy + Co. Real Estate Days on Market

Another key component in the sales process is Days on Market (DOM).  It is NO FUN to have your house on the market, and having to be "ON" all the time, ready for a showing at any minute.  Buy it's a necessary evil - if you want to sell your Charlotte NC home, you need to make it available to potential buyers.  Make sure that you hire a Realtor® whose brokerage statistics on DOM are favorable to you.  Here are the statistics from Savvy + Co. Real Estate on our listings Average Days on Market.  This is pretty interesting stuff...where would YOU want to be on this table?

So....would you rather be on the market for (on average) 53 days with a Savvy + Co. Real Estate agent, or 100+ days with another agent?  Think about your time on market - time really is money.  The longer you are on the market, the less you can expect to receive in your sales price.
