16 Bathroom and Kitchen Improvements That Will Help Your Home Sell For More Money

16 Bathroom and Kitchen Improvements That Will Help Your Home Sell For More Money

Chances are your home could use a little updating before you put it on the market.  On the other hand, you may have already bit the bullet.  Perhaps you decided to go ahead and put it up for sale just as it sits.  The problem is that it just doesn’t look like you’ll get a taker…ever. 
The truth is that home buyers want the most for their buck and for their time.  Conversely, they don’t want to put the extra hours and effort into renovating an outdated home if they aren’t going to get said home for a steal.  That’s why you may want to reconsider your “I will not put another penny into this place, forever and ever, amen” stance if you’re looking to get decent bids for your property.  You’d be surprised how little you can invest and see your home sell quickly. You can make a substantial profit, as well.

10 Tips To Make More Money From The Sale Of Your Home

10 Tips To Make More Money From The Sale Of Your Home

Alright, so you’ve got the house on the market, and you’re just dying for that first visitor to come and take a look.  You think your house is great, but your viewers seem less than impressed.  The next potential buyers seem the same, as do the ones after that.  What’s the problem?  Well, it could be any number of issues from a cluttered look to lackluster curb appeal.  Luckily for you, your hard-to-please-viewers situation can be easily rectified with a little bit of time and effort.
The fact is that there aren’t very many homes around that don’t need at least a minor facelift before they go on the market for sale.  It’s imperative for you to quit thinking of your house as your home, but rather as an investment that is going to provide a great return.  That is, it can provide a great return if you can persuade someone to buy it.  Well, my friend, you are in luck!  That’s exactly what I’m going to help you figure out how to do.

Before we get into the nitty-gritty, I want to make certain that you understand a couple of things about selling houses.  Number one, your target consumers, your location and your actual existing structure have a lot to do with the market value of your home, among other complicated factors.  Some of the following suggestions work quite well across the board for pretty much anyone selling their home, such as painting.  On the other hand, some work better for specific sets of people.  
As such, don’t feel compelled to drop a ton of money on a project that might raise the value of your home, but that no one in your area is willing to spend money on.  Does that make sense at all?  For instance, a basement can greatly raise the value of a home, and some buyers are willing to pay more for that particular finished room according to the National Association of Realtors.  That’s great news for folks with existing basements.  However, if you live near an area where basements are virtually impossible to build, don’t go into the throws of grief because there’s no way you can possibly make this improvement.  Trust me; people in your area aren’t dead in after basements anyway.  We’ll find something else that buyers where you live are looking.   That will, in reality, increase the value of your home.

Understanding Your Homeowner's Insurance ...before it may be too late.

Understanding Your Homeowner's Insurance ...before it may be too late.
For nearly all consumers, owning a home represents a large investment. But suppose your home is vandalized or damaged by a storm? Having insurance can protect you from such unpredictable losses.
When purchasing insurance, it is important to READ YOUR POLICY. Your policy is the contract between you (the insured) and your insurance company. The time to learn about your coverage and conditions is not after you have suffered a loss but before, while you have the opportunity to discuss the policy with your agent. If you do not understand the policy or want to modify it, contact the insurance agent or company for additional information. Also important is the written application for insurance that usually becomes part of the policy. Carefully examine the application before signing it to make sure the information is accurate and complete.

Also I will provide with the following important benefits:

1.      Assist you in securing the best financing program for your specific situation.
2.       Update you regarding properties that match your criteria.

4.       Discuss strategy regarding offer price, financing terms, possession date, and anything you want to know.
5.       Prepare the offer with terms, provisions, and addendums weighted in your best interest.
6.       Negotiate in your best interest to help you secure the best possible price and terms.
7.       Recommend professionals with respect to your purchase: inspector, termite inspector, title insurance, etc. (subject to your approval).
I will be available to you through the entire process and well after, to answer

Economy is poised for a pick-up in the second quarter of 2014

Economy is poised for a pick-up in the second quarter of 2014

After stalling out in the first quarter of the year, recent indicators suggest the economy is poised for a pick-up in growth in the second quarter of 2014, according to Fannie Mae’s (FNMA/OTC) Economic & Strategic Research Group. March data revealed positive consumer spending in both goods and services, helping set up a trajectory for more solid spending growth in the current quarter. April auto sales marked the second consecutive month of at least 16 million annualized units – the first time since 2007. The outlook for business capital spending also has improved, with core capital goods orders jumping 3.5 percent in March to the highest nominal reading on record. Additionally, the upbeat April jobs report showed a pickup in hiring at the fastest pace in more than two years, further signaling that the economy is gathering speed.

Is it good for housing?

"The housing picture remains more worrisome, with existing home sales, new home sales, housing starts, and multifamily housing all experiencing year-over-year declines despite improving consumer attitudes," said Duncan. "However, we anticipate a modest uptick in housing activity as the spring and summer selling and building seasons get under way. We believe this year will likely be a bump in the long-term road back toward normal levels, which we continue to expect sometime in late 2016."
