It’s spring! Which means it’s the prime time for the housing market to kick up again! If you’re thinking of selling your Cherokee County, GA home this season, or even this year, here are a few things you’re going to want to keep in mind when you’re getting ready to sell.

Don’t Neglect The Basics!

Cherokee County is a shining star in Georgia, but a prime location is not enough to sell a house. Even in this very heavy seller’s-market, it won’t do you any good to neglect some of the basics when it comes to listing and selling your house.

  • Use a Realtor!
    • While it’s not impossible to sell your house without one, more often than not you’ll get a better and faster sale when using a realtor.
  • Clean, declutter, and stage!
    • Most of us sell our house to buy a bigger one that better suits our lives and lifestyles. Which usually means the space we’re currently in is becoming more and more cramped. Get a storage unit, put a bunch of things away and give the house the feeling that it’s bigger than it is by staging it optimally.
    • It’s unfortunately also a really good idea to remove a lot of personal photos and the like; buyers doing walk-throughs want to look at the house and picture themselves there.
  • Professional Photos! 
    • Clean and stage your home and have a professional real estate photographer give your home the listing photos that really sell the house and its potential.

Make the Most of Cherokee County!

Now that you’ve absolutely covered the basics, it’s time to bring it local! Not everybody looking at buying your house is going to be from Cherokee County, or if they are, they may not be fully immersed in the community growing here!

With the increased freedom that working from home has given people there are whole new considerations in the “location location location!” game. Make the most of your community and don’t bury all the wonderful things we’ve got going on. Check out the county’s website, and look around your neighborhood for amenities that are not worth missing out on!

Include some of the more interesting and useful community resources on your listing! Show how close you are to some of the Parks or other recreational opportunities that Cherokee has to offer!
