Our Top Tips for Selling Your House

  • Find a Great Realtor
    Our Agents have extensive Local Knowledge & great Negotiation Skills.  They have the experience and education to understand the entire process from preparations, staging, listing, and negotiations all the way to closing table. We're friendly people who are motivated by your success!

  • Declutter and Stage
    You don't have to hire a staging professional to show off your house (although we'll tell you when you should).  Decluttering, organization and careful furniture placement can give your house the look it needs to attract serious buyers.  We can show you how!

  • Repair and Upgrade - but don't do TOO much
    We work regularly with Buyers and know what features they REALLY love and which are 'turn-offs'.  We can help you plan for repairs and upgrades whether it's a whole house of flooring or improving curb appeal.  We can help you plan which jobs to tackle so that you can SELL FAST and at a GREAT PRICE

  • Price it Right
    We have access to the most up to date information on local sales and our local knowledge helps us identify the right 'comps' to consider when advising you on the correct listing price.  Listing at the right price will attract lots of interest and hopefully a quick offer.

  • Marketing Magic!
    ​​ Charlotte and The Lake Real Estate's agents take extra steps to make sure that as many buyers as possible see your listing. Amongst other things: We use a professional photographer for the best pictures & marketing materials; We offer extended Open House hours so that lots of people see your house; We use locally targeted online ads (Facebook, Google etc.).  We take active steps to generate as much interest as possible in your house so that you can get the best results. 

  • Sell Successfully​
    Once you have a contract on your house we'll guide you through the next stages before closing.  We help you understand the various inspections and the appraisal and work with you to negotiate requests for repairs or concessions during the due diligence period.  We can also put you in touch with trusted vendors if repairs are required. 

  • Your Next Move
