Pro Advice from Top Producer Chris Spangler

I had the opportunity today to speak with one of our Top Producers, Chris Spangler, to get his take on current market conditions in the High Country.  Chris has been an agent with Blowing Rock Investment Properties, Inc. for six years, coming in at the tail end of the real estate boom and riding out the storm of The Great Recession.

Even through difficult times, Chris has been a multi-mullion dollar top producer. According to Chris, “first quarter 2014 has been his best first quarter ever.”  Even with a high inventory of properties, he feels that the market continues to improve, with prices remaining  stable.  All real estate is local, and in the High Country that is even more specific.  Property price will vary greatly based on proximity to town, what kind of views it has, amount of land surrounding the home, and amenities offered if located in a community.  The High Country real estate market encompasses Watauga, Avery, and Ashe counties so agents like Chris have to stay on top of marketing to bring buyers in. The market is currently is in favor of buyer’s however, it is slowly shifting toward sellers as the overall economy improves.

Tips for Sellers

Chris’s listings stand out with online branding of properties that include eloquent property descriptions, great photography, visual tours, and open houses. He has several marketing strategies that work well for his seller’s and is constantly updating his network with potential buyer clients.  His advice to sellers is simple:

  • De-clutter & Deep Clean your home
  • Landscape your property
  • Take care of minor repairs and repaint your home with neutral colors so that buyer’s can envision their things in the space
  • Get a pre-inspection done of the home to avoid surprises, and the possible loss of a deal, if needed repairs are revealed in a buyer’s inspection
  • Stage your home

If you are looking to list your home, or are a buyer searching for the perfect mountain property, Chris Spangler is your Pro in the Know!
