 HOMES WITH OWNER SUITES ON THE MAIN FLOOR IN THE GREATER CHARLOTTE AREA One thing my buyer clients increasingly have been asking for in the last several years is for a home with an owner's suite on the main floor. Part of the reason is that baby boomers are aging. Also, quite a number of my clients grew up in one-story homes and like the idea of having their bedroom on the main floor, even if they are purchasing a two-story home.  We often joke that Charlotte is the "home of two-story brick boxes," where an owner's suite is typically on the second floor. Fortunately, in recent years, more of our builders are offering homes with a first floor owner's suite, but they can still be hard to find. BENEFITS OF AN OWNER'S SUITE ON THE MAIN FLOOR Ideal for aging in place and not needing to navi...

 Sellers, before you remove any items from your home, consider what must stay when it's sold. You may have sentimental attachments to certain fixtures that are considered standard and included in the sales contract. If that's the case, Realtor Melanie Cameron shares the best approach to sorting it out. If you have any questions about which items stay with the home when you sell it, give Melanie a call.

 WHAT HAPPY HOME SELLERS ARE SAYING ABOUT NINA HOLLANDER'S SERVICE:"Thank You Google For Allowing Us To Find You, Nina" Nina Hollander with Coldwell Banker Realty in Charlotte, North Carolina is pleased to share this 5-Star Review from special clients who found me by googling "best realtor in Charlotte." Their mother had put her home on the market in Charlotte with an inexperienced, part-time agent and it was going "no where" after 30 days despite our strong seller's market. As their mother had already move out-of-state, they were having some problems managing the listing relationship long distance. In our first phone conversation, I explained to my clients how I marketed my listings and they hired me on the spot. Long story short, we received offers and had the home in contract within ...
