Selling Charlotte - Planning and Preparedness - Moving Success Tip #1

Selling Charlotte - Planning and Preparedness - Moving Success Tip #1

 

Moving CharlotteOur SouthPark home Closed last week and we are now officially residents of Lake Wylie! Prior to listing our home in SouthPark, we seriously decluttered each and every room and closet. When we realized we were going to list, we then had the professional stagers come in to give their opinion. For years I have ‘preached’ preparedness with my clients so going through it myself, I had to practice what I preach! Kathy Streib suggested I share moving tips so, here goes…

 


 

 

During the pandemic quarantine, we spent days & days cleaning and decluttering our home. Before even thinking of listing our home, I thought we had done a phenomenal job - everything had a place and every space was impeccably organized. As we prepared our home to list several months later, we realized that a LOT of what we had left in our home needed to be stored outside the home. Imagine that - MORE decluttering! 

 

 

TIP:  A lot of sellers choose to store additional furniture and their beloved tchotchkes in their garages. Buyers then complain that they can’t ‘see’ the garage and then, as sellers are under Contract, they can wind up paying for additional inspector visits. For example, termite inspectors need to visualize every surface where the wall meets the floor, including the garage. As part of a sales Contract, sellers are required to make those areas accessible for the inspectors. If it’s not accessible during the time of the inspection, the buyers will expect the sellers to pay for the inspector’s return visit. So, it is wise to call your local storage facility and secure a storage unit to store your furniture & tchotchkes!

 


 

NetMove Charlotte

 

RECOMMENDATION:  We used a mobile storage company, NetMove Charlotte - 704-323-4056 - and we highly recommend them. We were thrilled with their responsiveness, their attention to detail (picking out the spot you want the unit left can be an entire blog post in and of itself!), their pricing and their communication. The unit arrived clean and the delivery team provided easy instructions for use of the unit and pick-up when we were ready. You were not required to schedule pick up in any particular timeframe - another plus. When we phoned them to let them know we were ready for pick-up, they were Johnny-on-the-spot! NetMove is not only located in Charlotte - check to see if they are available in your area - we highly recommend them. 

 

 


 

 

We had multiple Offers and got our home sold very quickly - maybe too quickly as we are still a work-in-progress at our new house! We loved our SouthPark home and are certain that the buyers are going to love it as much as we did. Many thanks to my entire team for helping us prepare for the sale - Scott Morrison, Chrissy Lee and Elizabeth Maxwell Cooper - they are all rockstars! @StyleHouse Charlotte did a wonderful job of setting the stage for a successful sale - I HIGHLY recommend them!  Without planning & decluttering, remote storage & staging assistance, we likely wouldn’t have received the number of Offers we did - and ultimately, the wonderful buyers who are now calling 6128 Sharon Hills Road home.
