3 REASONS CLEAN WINDOWS HELP SELL YOUR HOME




Your home should be in top shape before it goes on the market if you want the best price and the quickest sale. That means freshening the inside and outside so the home is appealing and has enticing curb appeal.

Upgrades may not be worth the investment if you can't get the money back when you sell the house. However, updates that make the home look clean and bright generally pay off well in increased buyer interest and a quicker sale. That's where professional window cleaning comes in. Here are three reasons clean and clear windows just might help sell your home quicker.

 

1.       Clean Windows Let in More Natural Light

2.       Clean Windows Provide a Spectacular View

3.       Clean Windows Operate Smoothly

Drab2fab ~ Bathroom refresh with Iron Ore paint by Sherwin Williams~ Before & after

 



Before

It's time to renovate the bathrooms starting with the fixtures and cabinet color. It all started when I replaced the black matte doorknobs on all of the interior doors in my home. Just doing that started the desire for a cleaner, simpler look. 

I then had my home completely painted white on both the inside and out adding black matt trim on the exterior. I love the look.

And now it's time to update the design in the bathrooms to tye it in to the rest of the home. I am starting with the main powder room. The idea is to change just a few things like the cabinet paint color, knobs, fixtures and choose a paint color to match a softer calmer mood. Can't wait to pick out a cute rug!

 So far here is the hardware options I have chosen.





The paint color for the cabinet will be Iron Ore SW. Since I just painted the walls white the contrast should be nice. Iron Ore color is a dark charcoal gray. I will be accenting the cabinet with brass handles and knobs and adding a black light fixture. All fixtures bought on Amazon.






And more about the paint...



The tile counter will be replaced with a marble counter top (on order) and the mirror changed to a more modern black round metal mirror.

Here are some before pics. Stay tuned for the after pics this week!

PHASE 1: Scraping and stripping the paint off in preparation to prime and paint.

  • Fall 2022 Home Decor Trends and Design Styles You Will Love

    Even though summer is still in full swing, autumn will be here before we know it!  If you’re in the mood to start shopping for fall home decor, this is a great time to find on-trend items that will make it easy to transition your home from summer to fall.  To help you get started, today I’m sharing the top fall home decor trends and design styles for 2022, along with affordable fall decor finds and autumn decorating ideas. 

    When is the best time to start decorating for fall?

    I like to start scouting out the fall decorating trends in late August or early September, but I don’t usually get too excited about fall decorating until the weather cools down a bit — or at least by the first day of fall (which falls on September 22 this year).

    Whenever you decide to start decorating, you’ll find that adding a touch of fall style to your home can be easy.  Simply layer in some warmer, richer colors and weave in a few fall accents in a variety of textures to quickly transition your home from summer to fall.

14 CHANGES HAPPENING IN THE RE MARKET RIGHT NOW

THE SKY IS NOT FALLING! This is just what a normal real estate market looks like…

Look at any headline lately and it would seem the Real Estate market is headed for a crash. But if you look at the overall nationwide numbers and really delve into the actual stats it turns out we are more likely just entering a more normal market. As opposed to the crazed pent up Covid frenzy market we are emerging from. According to Mike Ferry Organization, the number one Real Estate Training and Coaching Company in the Nation for 45 years, here are 14 changes taking place as I am writing this:

1.     Days on the market (DOM) has extended and is continuing to extend.

2.     Inventory nationally is growing.

3.     There are fewer Covid pandemic buyers today and less coming.

4.     Price reductions are now in play.

5.     Interest rates will fluctuate and continue to go up and down.

6.     Having choices is good with more homes on the market.

7.     There are fewer showings and fewer offers per listing today.

8.     The projection trends MFO sees for the second half of the year are declining with less in the second half than in the first half of the year.

9.     Prices are flattening out. Not everywhere-but in many areas across the country.

10.  Expired listings are coming back faster than ever.

11.  The number of transactions falling apart is increasing.

12.  Some offers coming in now are below list price.

13.  Contingencies and home inspections are back in play on offers.

14.  Seller’s concessions are coming back as well. I.e.. Sellers paying buyers closing costs, seller bonuses etc.

 

As we continue to watch and navigate the emerging real estate market one thing is certain… and that is change. It is anyone’s guess what that actually looks like in 2023 but one thing if for sure, we will be right there, alongside learning and creating possibilities for our clients. And remember, whatever the market brings there is always opportunity.
