It's a competitive real estate market in North Carolina! If you're trying to sell your home, here are 4 upgrades to do to increase your home's selling potential.

Add Visible Storage

One of the number top things on a buyer’s wishlist is storage. While hidden storage is a benefit to some rooms, other rooms it’s more desirable to have visible storage. This is so that buyers can easily see there will be a place for all their belongings without having to actually open every cabinet or inspect every nook & cranny. To achieve this, consider adding floating shelves in a bathroom or in the living room. 


A fresh coat of paint will do wonders! This includes painting walls, brightening your front door for some added curb appeal, or even painting your kitchen cabinets. Neutral tones are still a crowd pleaser and are sure to be a winner in every space. 

Swap Out Hardware / Lighting Fixtures

These are small changes that make all the difference. These little details are quick to modernize a space, increase your home value, and wow homebuyers. Additionally, these updates can be fairly inexpensive as well! Brass finishes, oversized drawer pulls, and modern retro light fixtures are all the rage for 2021.

Invest in New Appliances

Appliances can often make or break a deal for buyers, especially now during the pandemic as appliances are harder to come by. Do yourself and your future buyers a favor by opting to invest in better appliances in your kitchen and laundry room for your Manhattan home in order to up your home’s appraised value and sell your expired listing faster!
