Keys to a New Home

The keys to a new home may very well be had through remodeling.  Is your home currently on the market?  Well, if you are wanting to sell quickly, the best bet is having a home that has been updated.  Another sale this week and the key to this new home was a remodeled kitchen.  We looked at seven homes, and the buyers decision was based mostly on the fact that the home had been completely remodeled.  The home was all new inside – floors, paints, bathrooms as well as a kitchen upgrade with new cabinets and new stainless steel appliances.  The location was a secondary choice to the renovations.  The past few sales I have had also ended with a similar result, making it clear that the key to a new home for buyer’s is as new an interior as they can get.

What is your number one priority when looking at a new home?  Let me know – I’m curious if this is a trend.  I would appreciate hearing from you.

Time for School

It’s official – the time for school has come.  While parents are proud to see their little ones going off to new and exciting school days, somewhere deep down they are thinking, whew – summer was hectic and I’m glad it’s over.  Time for school can mean more time for parents to do parent things.  Time for school can also be a time for parents to reflect on the summer past and wonder what would make it more relaxing.  Have you thought about a summer cottage?  It could be just the thing to bring the family together and help you relax while having fun.  There are still plenty of warm sunny days to explore homes for sale.  So while your little one is spending time in school, do a little parent shopping.  I can help you find that perfect summer home – and make your next summer an unforgetable one.

House Hunters

House Hunters are out and about looking to buy.  What are they looking for?  Well, I just sold two and both did not decide based on location, location, location.  While the location of both were good enough for my house hunters, the location was not optimum.  Price you say?  No not really, my house hunters both chose homes with an asking price higher than desired.  What are today’s house hunters looking for the most – AMENITIES!  Yes, that’s right – amenities won out with my last two house hunters.  They gave up location and price to have a home that had “newer amenities” – updated kitchens, baths, paints, flooring, etc.  Listen up seller’s – price your home accordingly!
