Strategic Downsizing To Cut Costs

22 Sep

Strategic Downsizing To Cut Costs. Everyone feels the strain of rising costs here and there. It may be groceries or it could be gas, but many of us are looking for solutions to an on-going problem. How to cut costs?

These days it becomes more of a strategy to save money. If you move to a walkable neighborhood you can cut down on gas, kids can walk to neighborhood schools, find entertainment at nearby parks and centers and more pep in your step means a healthier you.

You’re not just downsizing your space but you’re strategizing to move to a simpler life. You look at all the ways you can save on money just by moving to the right neighborhood. Ask yourself a few questions;

1. If you drive your kids to school or if your teenagers drive to school, wouldn’t it save money to downsize to a community where they can walk or buses will pick up?

2. What communities have shopping within walking distance? If you buy local you can save.

3. Which community could you move to that has a bus stop or train station nearby?

4. Are there banks/ATM machines in the community? Do you know how many times people must run out and drive to an ATM machine just to give money to the kids? What a waste of gas!

There’s more than one way to reduce housing costs. A smaller home typically means a smaller mortgage and smaller property taxes. It also means lower utility bills and reduced maintenance costs.

The biggest problem with downsizing to new homes is that people have trouble parting with the past but you always have your memories and trinkets.

The bottom line is that costs go up and down but they will never be so low that you won’t feel pocket stings, especially when you get closer to retirement age. That’s why downsizing is strategic; you must focus on cutting your expenditures so you have more going in your pockets than going out.

Asking yourself is it Worth It?

In most cases, the answer is yes. Sizing down will almost always mean saving money. Lifestyle is perhaps your wild card in this equation, and depends entirely on your personal wants, needs and any changes you hope to introduce.

If you strategize in the choices you make it can have a profound impact on your pockets and in your life.

Turning Your Attic Into Living Space by Bold Real Estate Group

19 Sep

Turning Your Attic Into Living Space by Bold Real Estate Group.  An attic can yield up to hundreds of square feet of unused living space in your home. Do you have another child coming into the family? Are you starting a new business that requires more office space? Would you like to turn that attic into a guest room? All of these are viable ideas to create a room out of storage space that is rarely used! With a little sprucing up, maybe a fresh coat of paint and some windows added into the space, the attic could become one of the warmest rooms in the house! Use these tips to help you create your attic room!

Sometimes a fresh coat of paint is all it takes to add life to a room. Consider that most attics are unpainted and unfinished with low ceilings there are many painting techniques that we can use to make the ceilings appear higher, and make the room appear brighter. The lighter the color of the walls, the larger the room is going to appear. Take note of the walls, are they finished? Is the wood in good condition? Would it be beneficial to keep the history and paint the walls or would it be best to finish the walls with drywall and paint?

Take into account what the room will be used for. Often, attics are not insulated. If the room is going to be used for an office, den, living space or bedroom it is a good idea to insulate the walls before finishing the drywall. This will add warmth to the room, because no one is going to want to spend time in a freezing cold room. Make sure that it is insulated properly, contact the local professionals.

Attic floors can be customized to give the room character. Often, all they need is a good sanding, and a couple coats of wood varnish. The older the home, the more authentic that the attic floors are going to be. Add in a few area rugs here and there, and floors, and walls will be complete. These are two major parts of completing your attic room, and making it ready for your family or for guests, so these two tasks could have you on your way!

Next comes the ceiling, after the walls have been painted, it is time to look at the ceiling. How is the shape of the ceiling? Should it be replaced? If the ceiling needs to be replaced, it could be completed at the same time that the walls are finished with drywall. Be sure to use thin drywall, as attic rooms are small, and we need all the space that we can get.

After the main elements of the room have been completed it is time to think about décor. Finishing the room on a budget could mean visits to the local chain store, or thrift store to find cozy, chic furniture for less. This means, that you could spend more on fabrics, accessories and other elements to make the room feel more like home.

Three Residential Improvements That Add Value by Bold Real Estate Group

19 Sep

Three Residential Improvements That Add Value by Bold Real Estate Group.  There are two ways to go about making home improvements. Either you splurge for things purely for the pleasure of having it or you take a pragmatic approach, making purchases that will increase your home’s market value.

Exactly how much you’ll recoup in costs depends on several factors, including the value of the homes in your neighborhood, when you plan to sell the home and the nature of the project itself.

But there are three improvements that will up your value no matter what!

1.Install a Standby Generator. Standby generators can add value to your home and while they are moderately expensive to install, they will safeguard your family by keeping power running in an emergency. Unlike a portable backup generator, which you store in the garage or shed and roll out during an emergency, a standby generator is permanently installed on a gravel bed or concrete pad next to your house. If the power goes out, an electronic switch automatically signals the unit to turn on, keeping essential household systems and appliances running

The cost of these units all depend upon your comfort level and what your expectations are. If you lose power, would you prefer the whole house remains running as if nothing ever happened or do you need just the basics to get through the rough time? Prices for standby generators can start as low as $1700, however, this does not include the price for an electrician to install and test the generator.

2.Create a Home Office. Many companies are looking for ways to reduce costs and minimize space to house employees; additionally, millions of Americans work from home and that number grows every year. This has made a home office more of a necessity than a luxury. Creating a dedicated work space not only adds value to your house, but it also makes your telecommute tax deductible. Converting an unused den, sunroom or extra bedroom is a great way to take care of business from the comfort of your home.

3.Infuse some Curb Appeal. If your house doesn’t look appealing from the outside, chances are a potential buyer will never make it inside. Paving a driveway or walkway that is in disrepair is a must, because this is what leads people to your home — you want it to be welcoming. Attractive, manicured front-yard landscaping will also add value to your home. Drought-tolerant plants are a great option if you don’t have a green thumb. And don’t forget about your backyard either. Outdoor living is very popular as more people wish to entertain. Raised garden beds and attractive lounging furniture will definitely appeal to future buyers. Who said you must spend a fortune? Curb appeal can be created for under $500.

Keep in mind that design tastes can shift significantly over time. A house that’s priced higher than its neighboring homes could be perceived as overpriced even if it does have more value.

Quick Affordable Decorating On A Budget by Bold Real Estate Group

19 Sep

Quick Affordable Decorating On A Budget by Bold Real Estate Group.  Looking to make your home more than a place just to lay your head? If you can’t afford to give your home a posh makeover, there are ways to decorate on a budget and still turn your place into a dream home.

The first placed to start should always be with color. Paint can transform a room and transform your furniture. Once you discover which hues you can live with continue on with small affordable touches to make your house more of a home.

1.If you just want to breathe new life into an old look start by shifting your furniture to change the style and appearance. Make minor changes with decorative pieces like mirrors, decorative candles and lots of plush plants. Fill up corners will plants of various sizes and set your lighting to reflect off the leaves, creating a beautiful focal point.

2.Add some texture to your rooms with rattan baskets and large bowls.

3.Used old distressed pieces of furniture in your kitchen; creative reuse of shelves, benches, tables, dressers, cabinets and various other used materials can give your kitchen a totally new look. Scratches and scars are part of the “in” look and called patina. But don’t go overboard, use sparingly.

4.Use crown molding kits to create detailed features in rooms; there are DIY kits that homeowners can easily complete in a day without the use of special tools.

5.Add table lamps, accent tables, drapes and artwork for visual focal points in rooms.

6.Faux pas painting, technique used for creating various decorative patterns and finishes can add drama to rooms without a burden to your bank account. One wall can become the talking point for your whole house.

7.A simple slipcover can make something old new again. Slipcovers are like clothing and can completely quick change any look.

8.Mix old with new to add freshness; many of us have fond memories of old sofas, chairs and accessories but there comes a time to shelve and box those things and add a touch of newness to your abode.

Decorating can be low-maintenance and comfy with shots of vivid color to make your home look like a work of art. All your rooms should feel stress-free clean and light so that you’re in a relaxing mood all year round.

The Importance of Home Inspection
Home inspection is one of the most important aspects of the home buying process for both the buyer (helping them understand the condition of the house they’re considering purchasing) and the seller, who wants to provide adequate disclosure regarding the home they’re selling. The inspection report written up by the home inspector after the inspection is the only document that details the house, making it an important aspect of the real estate transaction process. A home inspection typically includes an examination of the heating and central air conditioning systems, electrical systems, interior plumbing, the roof and foundations, attic and basements, visible insulation, walls and ceilings, floors and windows. Some inspections may also include major appliances and outdoor plumbing. The typical cost of an inspection varies depending on the area, size of the home, and services the inspector is providing.

 

If you’re selling your home, it’s good idea to have an inspection done before you put your home on the market. This will help you avoid any surprises when potential buyers hire a home inspector. After the report from the home inspection, you may choose to have the recommended repairs taken care of by the contractor of your choice, or you may choose to disclose the conditions you are not going to repair, which will protect you from liability of nondisclosure claims.

 

If you’re buying a home, be present for the full home inspection. The inspector will be able to answer any questions you may have about maintenance of the house and will be able to discuss any potential problems.  If the inspector finds any major problems, you’ll need to negotiate with the seller to either lower the price of the home or have the seller repair the problem. If the seller is not willing to renegotiate, the buyer will then have the opportunity to rescind their offer.

Inexpensive Ways to Improve the Value of Your Home
Making small improvements to your home can really add up… it doesn’t take a massive renovation project to help improve the value of your home. Simply improving aspects of your house can really make a difference.  It is a good idea to start with your house’s exterior. This means getting rid of all the toys your kids haven’t played with in months, the remnants of your various home improvement projects, and anything else that is just cluttering up your yard. Trim the hedges, keep the lawn mowed, and give all your flower beds a fresh layer of mulch. A polished landscape, even if it’s simple, will instantly  improve your house’s curb appeal, and the value of your home. To shine up the exterior of your house even more, get it pressure washed. This is much cheaper than getting your home repainted or the siding replaced, and in many cases this is all it will take to get your home’s exterior looking as good as new.

 

When considering ways to improve the value of your home, think about your last visit to a hotel. If you were happy about the quality of your room, was it because it looked clean and polished? If you weren’t happy with your room, was it because you felt like the bathroom could have been a little cleaner, the carpet could have seemed a little newer, the paint on the walls could have been a little fresher? While you’re in that mindset, try and see your house in the same light, armed with the knowledge that the cleaner your house looks and smells, the more valuable it will be. Start by organizing your house and relegating clutter to the trash or some out-of-sight storage. The tidier your house is, the larger it will appear, so declutter as much as possible. Apply a fresh coat of paint to your interior walls and wash your windows so you can’t even tell they’re there.

 

Finally, remember that improving the value of your home is all in the details, but it shouldn’t have to break the bank. Shampooing or cleaning your carpets will make your house look and smell cleaner immediately, and doing this yourself will save you big bucks. You’d be surprised by how much better newly cleaned carpets can look! If you think the carpet needs to be replaced, first try to pull back a bit of the carpet in a closet or other inconspicuous place in your home and check out the floor beneath. If it’s wood flooring, think about removing all of the carpet and refinishing the floor. Wood floor adds personality and value to your home, and wood floor that’s lying under your aged carpet can often be refinished more inexpensively than re-carpeting your house. In the same way, worn or outdated cabinets can really bring down a kitchen, so consider refinishing them with a lighter finish, especially in dark or smaller kitchens, as this will give your kitchen the illusion of looking large and new.

Your Family’s First Night in Your New Home
Your first night in your new house is an exciting time, but it can be a little overwhelming. Standing in the middle of your new home and looking at the stacks of boxes can tempt you to stay up all night unpacking them until morning, but avoid it. Instead, gather your family, make some pallets on the floor using mattresses and sleeping bags, and enjoy your first night in your new house together. Order some pizza (have fun saying your new address for the first time!), eat on napkins, and use plastic cups, treating it like an in impromptu picnic/campout. You may even invite some friends over, crack open a bottle of wine, and let them share in your pride and excitement.

 

Talking about what changes you’re going to make to your new house is a fun activity for your first night in your new house. If you have children, ask them what colors they’d like to paint their rooms, what direction they’d like their bed to face, and any other aspects of their room they might like to change. Children love having this kind of creative freedom. If unpacking is just a little too tempting, make a game plan to give yourself peace of mind. Write a checklist and plan of action of what rooms you will unpack first and what furniture you’d like to move where. Moving can be emotionally and physically exhausting, and you want to spend your first night in your new house soaking it all in… you’ll have plenty of time to unpack later.

Buyers’ Agents- Who Are They, What Do They Do?
If you think the home buying process itself is the most important part of finding your perfect home, think again. According to Money Magazine, “Choosing a real estate agent to represent your interests as a buyer should be one of the first, and perhaps one of the most important, step buyers should take before shopping for a home.” When you’re looking to buy a new home, it’s important to have a buyers’ agent-– someone who will represent your interests as the buyer, just as someone looking to sell their home should hire a sellers’ agent to represent their unique interests. The goal of the buyers’ agent is to help you find the home of your dreams, whether it’s a condo, a bungalow, a modest 2 story, or a mansion. And once they’ve found it, they’ll work aggressively to help you get the best price and the most fair contract negotiation.

 

Sixty-three percent of homes purchased in the United States each year were purchased with the help of a buying agent. Buyers’ agents save clients time and money, and conveniently are able to access properties that aren’t yet available on the open market. Because of this, they’re often able to help their clients buy houses for substantially less than they would be able to if they worked with a real estate agent, home owner, or developer directly. Buying agents often specialize in working in a specific area, where knowledge of the area, relationships with locals and real estate agents, and inside information about properties soon to be on the market pay off. The services provided to buyers by their buying agent are actually included in the commission paid by the seller or developer. Using a buying agent won’t affect the price of your home or cost you any additional money, but they do provide buyers with the peace of mind of knowing that they’re being represented along every step of the way in their real estate transaction.

 

Research has shown that buyers using a buyers’ agent found their home faster than those who did not, so choosing to enlist the help of a buying agent will help make the home buying process quick, easy, and fun– just the way it should be. After all, you shouldn’t have the journey toward finding your new home riddled with frustration and dead ends. The buyers’ agent will also help you locate the other professionals you may need as part of your home purchase, like a lawyer, home inspector, insurance agent, etc. Enlist the help of a buyers’ agent who will preview properties, shortlist the finalists, and accompany clients to view homes, and you’ll reap the benefits of having an agent represent your interests every step of the way.
