Make Your House Standout!

You don’t have to curb your enthusiasm when it comes to boosting curb appeal! Make your home stand out and increase its value with these simple and cost-effective tips.

Deep Cleaning
If you don’t already own one, rent a pressure washer to brighten up your home’s exterior. You may also use a deck
brush and cleaning solution to scrub away dirt. Get rid of any yard debris and cobwebs by sweeping your porch or patio, and wipe down any outdoor furniture.

Front Door Makeover
Paint the front door a new shade, or just touch it up with a fresh coat. While you’re at it, think about upgrading your doorknob to a keyless entry, or looking into a Ring video doorbell for added security.

Update Porch Décor
Dress up the front porch with outdoor furniture, potted plants and other décor for the season. Consider adding a rocking chair, flag, doormat or porch swing — but avoid making it too cluttered. If you have the space, perhaps add a fire pit or a few lounge chairs.

Garage Door Refresh
In addition to refreshing the paint job, you may consider purchasing DIY add-ons like magnetic handles from your local home improvement store. You can also easily craft faux garage door windows by following tutorials on YouTube. These affordable options will make your garage door look like new, with minimal handy work.

Light It Up
The right lighting can transform a space. Consider small porch lamps or outdoor string lights that match your home’s style. Swap out bulbs in existing fixtures for brighter, longer-lasting LED ones. You may also consider motion-sensor lights for added security as well as lights to illuminate your driveway or walkway.

What to Plant This Fall

Racking your brain as to what to plant this fall. Here is a shortlist of plants to consider.

Mums – multiple colors; prefer full sun
Pansies – rich colors can reflect light from frosts
Iberis Autumn Beauty – white blossoms flower in spring and fall
Russian Sage – produces lavender flowers, requires little water
Goldenrod – bright yellow flowers that attract butterflies
Sedum Autumn Joy – low maintenance, great in dry soil

Got Bigger Plans?

How to Create A Home Oasis

Well-thought landscape design can do wonders for your curb appeal. Here’s how to start creating your oasis in just a few easy steps.

Step 1 ~ What Plants Work in Your Region?
Stroll around the neighborhood to get an idea for what plants work in your region.

Step 2 ~ Pick the Plants That Work for You
Factor in how much work you’re willing to do, since some plants require more maintenance than others. Roses, jasmine, honeysuckle or fresh herbs can provide a fresh, floral scent in your yard. Fruit trees can be fun to harvest and stay with the property, increasing its value. Try lemon and orange trees in warmer climates and plum, pear or

apple trees further north.

Step 3 ~ Choose Your Planters
Make them pop, but keep them within the style of your home.

Step 4 ~ Hang Up a Hummingbird Feeder
To create a colorful, more vibrant garden, hang a hummingbird feeder. These birds spread pollen to help your flowers grow more easily.

Step 5 ~ Maintenance Is Key!
Take some time each weekend to water the plants, remove any weeds and keep the yard space beautiful!

The Truth About iBuyers

What is an iBuyer?

These are primarily online companies that allow you to request an offer for your home sight unseen. If you accept, the company will purchase the home, list it and then sell it to someone else. Typically the offer is lower than what you’d get from the market.

Who’s Involved?

Mostly online companies-Zillow, Redfin and Opendoor have their own iBuyer programs. Keller Williams is the brick-and-mortar brokerage to jump onboard.

Share of the Market in 2018

  • 0.2% – 25,000 iBuyer transaction
  • 5.34 million – Existing Homes Sold in 2018

If you’re thinking of putting your home on the market this spring, you may be wondering how to make your home more attractive to prospective buyers. The following are  the most common features buyers want in a home.*
1.  Laundry room. While many homes have a nook in the  hallway or within a bathroom for a washer and dryer, most  buyers (92%) of all ages want a separate laundry room  with space for these appliances, plus room to sort and iron. If you want to add a laundry room, think of putting it in the basement or in an area where there are utility lines and  plumbing is accessible. Since the utility lines are already there  and many basements aren’t finished, it’ll be much cheaper to install than if you have to take out walls or move utility lines. Cost to install: $1,000 to $10,000* 
2.  Exterior lighting. 90% of buyers want a home with  outdoor lighting, including spotlights, walkway lights and  pendant lights. Not only does this lighting highlight your  home’s curb appeal, it’s also a safety measure. For example,  motion lights will turn on whenever they sense movement. Cost to install: $63 to $135 per fixture*
3.  Energy-efficient windows and appliances. Energy  Star-rated windows and appliances are a top choice of  buyers—90% prefer energy-saving appliances and 87%  prefer energy-saving windows. Energy-efficient windows  can reduce heating and cooling costs by 12%. Additionally, homeowners may save up to $40 a year on their utility bills  by including energy-efficient appliances in their homes. Cost to install: $270 to $800 each for windows; cost  varies for appliances*
4.  Patio. More than 84% of buyers feel a patio is an  important home feature. Many people entertain outside  during the warmer months of the year and a patio allows  them to do so without having to modify their home. Cost to install: $961 per 120 square feet for a concrete patio*
5.  Hardwood floors. For 82% of buyers, hardwood floors  are a desirable selling point in a home. Hardwood floors tend  to be more durable and easier to maintain than carpet. They  also offer a timeless aesthetic to a home. Homeowners can add  rugs to improve the warmth of a space or tie the room together. Cost to install: $1,473 per 120 square feet of unfinished  hardwood; $1,353 per 120 square feet of prefinished  hardwood*
6.  Garage storage space. Storage is important to 81% of  buyers, especially if they have growing families. Additional  storage in the garage keeps the main living areas free of  clutter and is more accessible than attic or basement spaces.  Improvement options include installing pegboard on the wall for tools, improving the lighting and electrical circuits or adding cabinets. Cost to install: $2,025 – $2,363 for a 380 square-foot space*
7.  Eat-in kitchen. Many buyers (80%) like the appeal of  eating their meals in the kitchen, especially if they have children.  Creating space in the kitchen for a small table and chairs may  be as simple as removing a wall. You will want to make sure  the wall is non-load-bearing, with limited repair work involved and without pipes or wires needing to be removed. If the  wall contains any of these factors, your costs could increase dramatically. Cost to install: $1,000 to $10,000*

There are many communities with great investment potential to help establish your real estate portfolio and create a solid retirement plan. Bank REOs and HUD homes are just a couple of the avenues to begin your search.

Are you paying CASH for real estate? When paying cash, showing proof of funds is very important and is often a deal breaker. This can be provided in one of two ways:

  1. A Printed Bank Statement Showing the Current Balance (please blotch account number with black/magic marker), or
  2. A Letter From Your Personal Banker, CPA, or Attorney (this method may take longer)

Failure to provide the needed proof of funds with your cash offer will prevent serious consideration of your offer. Starting a deal out with undermined credibility is not an auspicious beginning. The following items will not be considered as a proof of funds.

  • Impending Lawsuit Settlement, Inheritance, or Lottery Winnings
  • A Line of Credit Pre-Approval from Another Property
  • A Promise of Proof of Funds Once Deal is Executed
  • Verbal Assurances from your Agent That You Have the Money
