It’s that wonderful time of year again! Fall is offically here and that means that home sellers need to go about selling their home a little differently than they would if it were still summer. Here are a few tips to sell your Chapel Hill home in the fall:

Be competitive-price your North Carolina home 5-15% below comparable homes on the market.  In this tough economic climate, you want your home to stand out in some way. 

Fall is a hard time of year to maintain your home but it's also a beautiful time of year. Make sure your yard is clear of leaves, clean out your gutters, and touch up paint.  A few simple maintenance tips can go a long way.

Buyers like a bargain, so don't be discouraged by low-ball offers. Look at it as an opportunity to negotiate. Live by the quote: "Don't take anything personally." If you don't want to come down on price, offer to pay for closing costs or repairs.

Most of all, be patient. Your house will sell, it just may take more time.
