Does anyone else have Spring Fever yet? After a long, cold winter there is simply nothing better than the arrival of warmer weather and longer days.

For many of us, however, the onset of spring means that it is time to put your house on the market and get ready to move. Experts agree that the springtime market is the best market in which to sell your home.

The experts also agree that as you age, moving can be a traumatic event, and for some a major roadblock that prevents them from making the best possible decision that could affect the remainder of their lives. With that in mind, Plantation Village is hosting an informational seminar with local experts, who will be on hand to provide advice and assistance in the areas of downsizing, presenting and selling your home.

This is a great way for potential residents to test the waters at Plantation Village and learn about the necessary steps associated with moving. The format of the event will be an interactive workshop featuring the three major areas that affect your move. The first stop will be time spent with Jane Roberts, founder of Carolina Move Managers. Think of Jane as a concierge, a highly trained senior move manager who partners with clients to help them succeed and thrive in every step of the relocation process.

Jane starts by working with her clients to develop a customized floor plan of their new home, to identify which pieces of furniture will work in the new space and which pieces will not.

Understanding that many have children who are living far away or who are facing extremely busy schedules, Jane offers a comprehensive array of move management services. She even works with experienced movers to pack and prepare belongings for the move, then assists with unpacking and decorating.

The next stop in the workshop is an informational session with Mandy Mattox, a local Realtor with a proven track record of success. She has excelled in real estate as a result of her compassionate approach and focus on providing useful guidance, combined with her commitment to listen carefully to the needs of her clients.

Some of the information that Mandy will cover includes how to sell a home in the most expedient, efficient manner possible. She will also discuss the nuances of creating a comprehensive marketing plan for each listing, in addition to current market data, such as recent sale prices and the average number of days that each home has spent on the market.

The third stop will address the presentation of your home as you prepare it for sale. Jenna McKnight, of Aqua Home Staging, is an expert in preparing homes for sale on the open market. For many, it is a surprise to hear that staged homes often sell faster, and for more money. It is also surprising to learn that a few simple strategies and techniques can deliver BIG results. Jenna will share presentation tips and suggestions.

When you consider that your end game will be a more rewarding, convenient lifestyle provided by Plantation Village, where you can escape the drudgery of home ownership in favor of swimming in the salt water pool, enjoying delicious fare at our restaurant, connecting with new friends, or enjoying the freedom of having weekly housekeeping services, there are lots of reasons to get moving this spring.
