Highlands NC Home Values Affected By Dated Features

Highlands NC home values are affected by dated features.  Dated features demand a remodel or a reduction in price when listing a Highlands NC home for sale. Recognizing which features are dated and which of these are detracting from your home’s value is important when preparing to sell.  Understanding the value of your particular home is crucial when selling.  This often requires disconnecting your emotions from the home.  A potential buyer will not look at your Highlands NC home for sale the same way that you do.

What does dated mean?  Imagine the seventies for starters.  Mustard yellow shag carpeting and brown appliances are out.  While it is hard ti consider these elements ever coming back in style they were for one short period of time.  If a buyer walks into a living room with these elements installed it would scream “REMODEL” and perhaps even “wow, nothing has been done here for years!”

When preparing a Highlands NC home for sale you have two choices.  The first choice is to leave a home as-is and price the home according to its condition and work needed.  The second  choice is to make necessary updates and improvements to capture top dollar.  Open floor plans, energy efficiency, and smart features are all features in a home that appeal to today’s buyers.
