Lake Glenville Home Sales 2008 to 2009

Do you believe in love at first sight? If you’ve ever seen the sun setting over beautiful Lake Glenville and the majestic mountains just beyond – we’re sure you do!

We invite you to view the sales list below for lakefront homes in Glenville sold throughout 2008 and the first quarter of 2009. Now may just be the perfect time to buy or build your dream home, and we think Lake Glenville may just be the perfect place.

May Flowers Bring June Buyers

Increasing The Curb Appeal of your Home

The rainy days of April have made the ground a perfect medium for a colorful palette of May flowers. As visitors descend upon the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau in the coming weeks, it’s a given that many either won’t want to leave at all or will choose to buy a vacation home here and return year-after-year. At Silver Creek Real Estate Group, it’s both our job and our passion to find a perfect match between buyer and seller, and help turn dreams into reality. In this article, we will focus on the exterior of the home – what the buyer will see when they first arrive at their potential new residence. Keep in mind, you never get a second chance to make a first impression! We’ve compiled a few easy, economical steps you can take to increase the “curb appeal” of your home – making it simpler for buyers to envision themselves living within the four walls behind that pretty picture you’ve created. Not planning to go anywhere anytime soon? The tips below are still great ways to beautify the exterior of your home.

1. According to the experts at HGTV, the first thing you should do is look at your home from the buyers’ perspective. Take a big step back so you can see the front of your home completely. Pay particular attention to what draws your eye – the good and the bad. Oftentimes, it’s your front door. Does it look appealing? Does it say “Come on in!”? If not, a tasteful wreath may do the trick, you may want to paint your door a new color – or it may be worth investing in a beautiful new door. At times, a bench and some pretty potted flowers might augment the front of your home giving the feel of an outdoor foyer. At the very least, consider putting out an attractive new doormat that says (figuratively or literally) “Welcome.”
2. Develop a landscape plan. If your thumb is not particularly green, you may want to consult with a landscape expert. You may be able to find one through friends or even through the phone book (or call Silver Creek, and we’ll point you in the right direction). Ask their price to develop a landscape concept for you BEFORE you have them come out to the house. Once you are happy with their estimate, invite them to create a plan for you. If you feel comfortable going it alone, the advice at your local nursery is FREE. Find out which plants and flowers will work best based on the amount of sun or shade your yard receives, and which will have the most impact. Be sure to check out the Tailgate Farmers Market at the Cashiers Community Center on Wednesdays (1 p.m. to 6 p.m.) and Saturdays (8 a.m. to 1 p.m.) throughout the summer and support local growers.
3. Pay attention to details. Beyond the front door and the landscaping, you should concentrate on even the minutest elements of the front of your home. Remember, the point is to get the buyer from the car to the interior of your home. Are your windows clean (would window boxes add a nice touch)? When was the last time you power washed your driveway (if you have one)? How’s the paint holding up – trim and siding? Does everything look neat and tidy? Sometimes, something as simple as a clean, crisp edge to your lawn and landscaping can speak volumes to a potential buyer.

Still not sure how to get started? As a full-service brokerage firm, we are more than happy to help you figure out the very best ways to position yourself in the market, as well as stage your home – from inside to outside – to expedite the sale of your property. To set an appointment for a walk-through by one of Silver Creek’s talented brokers, contact us at jlucke@ncliving.com or by phone at (828) 743-1999. Happy Planting!
