Advantage to Listing Your Home After the New Year!

 

Good Day All, 

I hope everyone is having a great week!! Can you believe that it is almost December 1st? The countdown to Christmas is here!! This may surprise you that a Realtor is telling you this, but now is NOT the time to list your home! I know it’s a shocker, but below are a few reasons why you want to wait and list your home for sale after the New Year. 

  • Holiday Décor – I know we all like to have our homes decorated for the holidays! Honestly though the last thing you want in your homes pictures and in your home while buyers are looking is Christmas tree’s, Santa Clause all over the place, the home plastered in green and red, etc. Wait until after Christmas, put the décor away, clean and be ready to impress buyers!! 
  • Timing – Most people list their home for sale in the Spring time. Listing your home right after the new year makes your home stand out and not get lost in the flood of homes listed in the spring. Plus, hopefully you will be under contract and moving in the spring instead of just getting the process started. 
  • Ring, Ring Ring – Realtor’s phones, emails and all forms of communication is typically very slow in December. Which means buyers are typically waiting until after the holidays to purchase a home. Listing in January means they will be waiting to see your home verses having it sit on the market in December with very to no activity. 
  • Tax Time – Often at the end of the year people start to look at their taxes, financial situation, etc. and plan for the next year! Having your home fresh on the market in January is ideal for people getting a head start on 2019! 

I hope you find this information helpful!! Just remember list with me in January, but call me today so we can get a plan together!

Licensed & Insured!!

 

Good Day All, 

I hope everyone is having a great week!! Lately, I’ve heard of so much horror stories of homeowners hiring unlicensed “professionals” for maintenance and updates for their home. I cannot express how important it is to hire a licensed and insured professional for ALL projects around your home. 

I’ve seen some “professionals” require huge down payments for jobs and never show up to complete them. I’ve seen roofers complete a job without pulling a permit and then you run into issues when it comes time to close the sale of your home. No matter how big or small the job is, make sure you hire a professional that is licensed and insured. 

If you have any questions or concerns please contact me. I have a list of local vendors for all jobs and would be more than happy to share it with you if needed. (352) 577-9171 or Info@Search352Homes.com

Kitchen Remodel on a Budget

 

Good Day All, 

I hope everyone is having a great week! It’s so nice to have some cooler fall weather for a change!  The most expensive room in your home is your kitchen. We all know it’s so easy to go over budget with remodeling projects especially when you’re remodeling a kitchen. Below are a few tips that will ensure you stay within budget and finish your project with great results. 

  • Bright White – A coat of fresh, bright white paint can do wonders for your kitchen cabinets. It’s more affordable to paint your cabinets and update the hardware instead of purchasing new cabinets. Just remember that a white kitchen is always very for buyers!

 

  • Light It Up – New light fixtures and cabin underlighting is a great way to make a statement without breaking the bank. 

 

  • Leave Plumbing Where It Is – One the most expensive items when remodeling is plumbing. Make sure you leave existing plumbing lines where they’re so you don’t have to update your plumbing and location. 

 

  • Solid Surface Counter Tops – Everyone loves the look of granite and solid-surface counter tops! When shopping around ask your local counter top store for surfaces that are being discontinued. Also keep in mind solid-surfaces that may not be granite, but has the same look and quality as a granite. 

 

  • Scratch and Dent – Scratch and Dent Appliances is a great way to save money!! Finding an appliance that has a very little scratch or dent that’s not really noticeable will save you a lot of $$$. Check your local appliance store, Lowes or Home Depot and ask if they have any appliances like this available. 

 

I hope you find these tips helpful for your next remodeling project. If there is anything I can do to help please let me know.

Maintaining Your Home in the Fall

Good Day All, 

I hope everyone is staying dry and safe from Hurricane Michael. Luckily, it doesn’t look like Marion County is in the path of the storm, but we’re definitely keeping everyone in the panhandle in our thoughts and prayers. I wanted to go over a few things you can do in the weeks ahead to prep your home for fall and the upcoming holidays! Most of your homes are used for entertaining this time of year and I thought these tips would be helpful. 

 

  • Fireplace – Make sure you have your fireplace inspected to ensure it is ready for use! 

 

  • HVAC Unit – Make sure your heating and cooling system is ready and good to go! In Florida you probably had this inspected in the spring for the summer season. It’s also a good idea to have it looked at going into winter season. 

 

  • Appliances – With holiday meals and baking you definitely want to make sure all of your kitchen appliances are in working order. The last thing you want to happen is have a burner or appliance go out right before the holidays. Also don’t forget about your washer and dryer! Holiday’s often bring extra house guest which means more laundry. 

 

  • Exterior – Fall leaves often bring gutters to full capacity. Clean out your gutters and while you’re outside check your roof and piping to ensure it is ready for the hard winters we have here in Florida. 

 

  • Your Own Audit- Walk around the interior and exterior of your home. You know your home better than anyone else. If you see something out of place or unusual, now is a good time to have it looked at. 

 

As always if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do to help please contact us. Info@Search352Homes.com or (352) 577-9171
