Hi Tabjordan33

Buyers want the most for their money. When working with buyers I have them make a list of everything they want in a home and then divide it into three sections "want", "Need" and "must have".

On almost every list we find:

Granite Countertops
updated kitchen appliances
No gold fixtures
tile in bathrooms

When updating the most bang for your buck will be in the kitchen and bathrooms. If carpets are worn they must go. A fresh coat of paint throughout the home and outside is going to be your best ROI. Don't forget the front door! Paint or replace if needed. Invest a little in the landscaping .. curb appeal will either make them want to come in or drive off.

Hope this helps.

I currently have a listing in Montclaire, and have experience working in this area. I work for one of Charlottes top RE/MAX teams. We spend several thousand dollars a month to market our listings, including the local real estate magazines. We really need more properties to put in these spots, we do this free of charge to you if I list your home. Another thing that I do is get professional pictures of your home; this makes a huge difference when 90% of buyers start on the internet. These are only some of the things we do, if you would like to schedule a meeting please email me at I will post some of my past client reviews on the link below. I hope to hear from you, have a Happy New Year! ... more
