Is the winter really a good time to sell a house?

Selling a home during winter is both a blessing and a curse. Fewer homes for sale means less competition, but less competition also means fewer showings. Here’s the good news: the buyers who are active tend to be more motivated and you’ll have to deal with fewer showings. There’s no question that homes rarely show as well in the winter as the spring and summer. But, if your home is well lighted inside and out and features cozy rooms, you’ll blast to the top of a buyer’s list. A lit fireplace on a cold day creates a cozy atmosphere that is hard to beat. Use extra lighting and warm rooms to slow your prospective buyers down and appreciate everything your home has to offer. Get my 16 other home staging tips by emailing me and asking for my Home Seller Tips.

This is my second buying experience with Lauretta and her knowledge of the Tryon area was pivotal in my decision to continue working with her. Lauretta is a super communicator and keeps you up to speed on the details pertaining to your contract and closing. If you want to have a little fun Lauretta is worth working with as she has another dimension to her selling style and that is a serious joy in the area she serves. It's fun working with someone who gives you all the info for an area with hands on experience and enthusiasm. Your Hendersonville office has a fabulous presence on the Main Street with a professional staff to help with notarizing documents and providing a whole range of services which is helpful when you are a recent arrival.

I knew the moment I met Lauretta Cook that I was in good hands. Her knowledge, professionalism, sense of urgency and proactive problem-solving skills convinced me she would would sell my house quickly. My confidence in her was immediately rewarded. I received a full-price offer the day after the house was listed and closed three weeks later.

Lauretta's the best! Lauretta is absolutely wonderful as a person and an agent. She understood our needs and wants and was so helpful and patient as we looked at houses. She knows her job I side and out. We think of her as a friend. Our experience could not have been better.

Not only does Lauretta embody the best of her profession, she has become a friend to us. She has an innate ability to relate to people and help one feel that they have found a knowledgeable and determined partner in their search. After many property viewings and having gleaned our home desires and space preferences, she found our new home at a Sunday open house she visited on her Birthday, no less! She got us to look at the property immediately and now we have exactly the home we hoped for in the charming small town of Hendersonville. Thank you, thank you Lauretta.

To give you a frame of reference, I sold real estate in Colorado for 32 years. I lived and worked in the mountains and at a resort called Vail. My experience with Lauretta Cook was first class from start to finish. I found her to be approachable, interested in my wants and needs and fun. We searched Saluda, Columbus, Tryon and Hendersonville and she was always prepared and thoughtful about her home choices. Lauretta was a super resource for area sights, restaurants and supplied me with details on shopping plus other practical information. Since I've been in the business I appreciate customer loyalty and I would gladly refer Lauretta to any friends, family or clients I have with interest in the area. She's the cream of the crop!! Purchasing in North Carolina differs dramatically from Colorado's process and Lauretta Cook held my hand to ensure I was comfortable in the way the different aspects are handled. Lauretta Cook is a seasoned professional and it shows in the way she handles herself and how easy she makes the real estate transaction seem. When buying your single most important asset you want to know your Broker listens and appreciates your specific wants or needs. Lastly it is nice when you feel like the person that handled your transaction "walked a mile in your moccasins"! I felt like Lauretta was respectful of my journey.

Lauretta Cook actually handled this property when we bought it. She is extremely personable, friendly, helpful, understanding of what we want and how to go about getting it. We would always use Lauretta if we ever decide to buy in the Hendersonville area again. Job well done!

Lauretta Cook was a wonderful person to work with. She was so very helpful to me with purchasing my home. It had been 40 years since we bought a home and she knew all the hoops that needed to be jumped and helped me through each one. She never made me feel stupid when I was confused about something and she had patience galore . I can't thank her enough !!! Margaret Trees

We had been looking in the area for 2+ years. I had tried many different real estate agencies online and quickly determined Beverly-Hanks was superior in every regard. When we decided to finally visit the area we were focused on Hendersonville. So naturally we selected that office for our initial visit. By chance Ms. Cook was in the office that day and we are so happy she was. We seemed to make an instant connection. She was personable, knowledgeable, and understood our objectives and timeline. She then said we could have it all! As it turned out she was right. An excellent rating especially for patience is not enough! In fact excellent falls short in a number of categories. We have never met an individual who performed her job at the level at which she does. She has an uncanny ability to feel out a situation and provide the perfect responses. We cannot imagine our home search in North Carolina being as successful as it was without Lauretta Cook! If you're looking for you're next home, we highly recommend Lauretta Coojk!

Not only was she always professionally dressed, she always acted lovely to us. Her strengths are persistence, patience and perseverance! To your company she is a superior asset! Definitely, she is a Keeper!

Since most people don't buy a house every day, it is a stressful process. It is more so when your buying one 200 miles away and in an other state. Lauretta took most of the stress off us. Her professional stance was to help us get the house we wanted and needed. Her personality is perfectly suited to helping you if your either a buyer or seller. Its clear that she is highly experienced, competent and detailed. I know that we can count on her for continued advice as we seek services and professional to upkeep our new home. She receives only the highest commendation from me and my wife. Semper Fi !

Those rating speak for themselves! I called the Hendersonville office one day to ask for some information about the area, the housing market, etc., and Lauretta answered the phone. We had a very nice chat, shared information about our interest in the area and generally what we would be looking for in a house. Though we began the search almost a year ago but were very honest with Lauretta that for personal reasons we were just exploring, not yet ready to commit to the area, etc. Lauretta spent several days with us over the next several months and between visits kept us updated with information on new listings. Her patience...that was a great factor in our success with her. She hung in there with us as our earlier issues gradually worked themselves out...and here we are happily in our new home!

Lauretta Cook was extremely helpful in arranging the showing of homes which met our specific needs and performed beyond our expectations when it came time to make an offer and close on the home which we chose. Looking for a home and closing on a home from a distance of 500 miles is a challenge which was made pleasant by the efforts of Lauretta. We would definitely recommend her as the realtor of choice to anyone looking for a home in the Hendersonville area.

We feel very fortunate to have had Lauretta Cook represent us in looking to relocate to Hendersonville. We didn't have anyone in the area to contact about who we could deal with in our search. We stopped in the office and Lauretta was on floor duty and immediately sat down with us to get an idea of what we were looking for in a mountain home. We communicated for several weeks while Lauretta kept us informed as to what properties were available and keeping us up to date on current market conditions. After several showings we found a home and with Lauretta's help the whole process could not have been smoother. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to purchase a home or to sell their home.

My wife (Penny) and I worked with Lauretta Cook when she was with Keller Williams and she did an outstanding job for us. When we contacted Lauretta to sell our 31 Carriage West Drive we were not aware that she was with Beverly Hanks. We have moved to another state but if we return to Hendersonville area we will definitely use Lauretta to find us another home.

Lauretta is the kindest, sweetest, smartest agent we have ever worked with. She has helped us get acquainted with the area and has worked very hard to obtain any information she may not have had when we were asking questions. Lauretta is the BEST!! Name any good thing, and that is Lauretta, in a nutshell. We have only worked with Lauretta; however, the first day we arrived, we met the receptionist, Mary, and she was delightful. This was the speediest home-buying purchase and closing we have ever encountered! Also the easiest.

I met Lauretta at a Beverly Hanks open house that was on my target list. We had a good initial conversation at the open house that gave me a good impression of Lauretta's professionalism and knowledge of the area. This was followed up by a meeting in the office for both of us to get better acquainted. She impressed me with her integrity and experience and I felt comfortable with the idea of working with her. Lauretta led me through the entire house buying process which was critical because the last time I bought a house was 24 years ago. I sought her guidance and felt confident in following her recommendations.

Excellent knowledge of area, nc real estate practices, communicaton skills, and punctuation. The buying and selling of real estate can be a very stressful endeavor. Lauretta though not only took the stress out of the equation but made our transaction a most pleasurable experience. Should we have any future needs for a real estate broker we've got Lauretta on speed dial. Thanks Lauretta!

over the years we have bought several homes from real estate agents. Lauretta will always stand out in our minds as one who actually assisted us in buying a home rather than selling us one, the difference being, she was concerned with our happiness instead of her bottom line.
