When the time comes to sell your island home, you’ll find significant advantages in listing your property with Bald Head Island Limited Real Estate Sales

Because we know the island better than anyone, we can help you set a price that is based on a current market analysis, factoring in your individual motivations and timeline. We are also the only company on the island offering access to all island properties for sale, including exclusive new home neighborhoods like the Southern Living Inspired Community at Cape Fear Station, as well as resale listings in MLS. Plus, our robust nationwide marketing efforts ensure maximum exposure for your property.

In preparation for listing your property, we will also evaluate your home and share specific suggestions on how to make it stand out in the market. To get started, however, we offer three common recommendations based on knowing what appeals to resale homebuyers island-wide.

  1. Renew and refresh.

Updating, especially kitchens and master baths, is key. Most people are not looking to buy a project and would rather spend their island time relaxing as opposed to renovating.

  1. Bring the outside in. 

Life on Bald Head is lived outside as much as inside. Screened porches, especially for dining, are always desirable, as are outdoor cooking and entertaining areas.

  1. Maximize your first impression.

Curb appeal is very important, even on an island that prides itself on minimal disturbance of the natural environment. Upgrading your street-side appearance is bound to pay off in increased showings.

So what about timing? While it’s hard to nail down an ideal timeframe to list your home, it is smart to consider the increased exposure you’ll get if you’re on the market when the island expects more visitors. While we’re active year round, spring, summer and early fall are typically are our busiest seasons.
