If you are planning to sell your home in 2020, now is a perfect time to start the planning process. Most contractors can give you a reasonably accurate estimate based on pictures & measurements for flooring, kitchen & bath updates. You can work out a reasonably accurate estimate installation.
Also remember that many outside jobs like power washing, roof, deck & fence work do not require the contractor to enter your home. There are lots of ways to #supportlocal

Details like this cracked base cabinet can become a big deal if they’re noticed when you move out of a rental. Fortunately I documented this one when my client moved in, so she won’t have any problems.

STAGING YOUR HOME PRIOR to SELLING:
We live in our home differently than we do when we are trying to sell our home.
Staging doesn't always mean bringing IN furniture... most often it means:
-EDITING down your decorative items
-REMOVING furniture so a room flows better
-SIMPLIFYING the overall look

Floating stairs and suspended staircases | A specialty of - Siller Stairs

I’ve seen some really interesting staircases in my work. But I’ll confess I’ve never been a fan of open staircases or floating staircases.

Don’t get me wrong, I think they’re beautiful, but I’m afraid of heights and seeing through stairs makes me all kinds of anxious!

That said, here are some absolutely stunning floating staircases that I just had to show you.

Floating stairs are stunning. SILLER offers a choice of self-supporting floating stairs in many materials like wood, glass, concrete, corian and acrylic. Suspended stairs which seem to be floating provide a certain sense of magic.

In Ground Pools can be very polarizing with Buyers. They either love them or hate them.

Here’s what you need to know:

1. Having a swimming pool does not necessarily increase property value, especially if it is not typical for the neighborhood.

2. While a few buyers will see a pool & daydream about summer BBQ’s & pool parties; more Buyers see a pool & think “liability” and/or “extra maintenance cost” and keep looking. I estimate this split at 30% for/70% against

Insurance companies see liability & extra maintenance costs too. Which is likely to increase homeowners insurance premiums.

A pool is not difficult to maintain, but because many homeowners don’t understand it well, they hire a service so they don’t have to track one more thing. This can be costly.

01/26/2020

When the time comes to look for a home, the first ting to do is get prequalified by a mortgage lender.

This helps you in 3 ways:

1 - It shows the Seller you can actually buy their home. In NoVA a lender approval letter with every offer is standard practice. Without one, or proof of funds, your offer does not seem valid.

2 - Saves you a lot of time looking at homes you may not qualify for.

3 - You will not fall in love with a home you can’t afford and compare every other house to “the one”. This makes it so hard to find a home you can be happy in.

It is important not to go by online calculators, which sometimes omit Taxes, Insurance & HOA fees from the monthly payment amount.

For many years I was on a Real Estate team. I’d bet that if you asked my former teammates which of these roles they filled, they would each give you a different answer.

Real Estate teams can be a great fit for some. But they aren’t for everyone.
If you ever want to talk about what did and did not work for the team I worked with for 16 years, I’d be glad to meet for coffee, virtual coffee via Zoom or IRL (that’s In Real Life to those over 40) and share my thoughts.

Fill in the blank…

“I have a _________…”

I’m about 100% sure I can guess what word you chose.

Was it “dream”?

Good chance it was. We all know this line from Martin Luther King, Jr.’s famous speech. So when we hear those first three words, it sort of naturally comes to mind.

But what many people aren’t aware of is how much he affected the lives of real estate agents, buyers, and sellers.

It was his death that gave Congress the last push needed to pass the Fair Housing Act, back in 1968. It’s pretty involved, so I won’t get into it all here, but to put it simply…

This was put in place to ban racial discrimination in housing. You can’t be refused the rental or purchase of a house, based upon your race.

Seems simple enough to most people now. A given, if you will. But it didn’t happen overnight. And believe it or not, it still can and does come up.

But guess who’s a big part of making sure this Act is followed…

On the front lines, it is people like me. Real estate agents. We’re tasked with making people aware that discrimination based upon race (and many other things) are not acceptable, and we must refuse to work with anyone who wants to do so.

And I am proud to be a part of this ongoing history.

Just figured I’d take this moment to pay him some respect, and to give you some insight into how much more responsibility a real estate agent has than meets the eye.

That’s all for now…

…and may your dreams come true.

MYTH: Housing inventory is way down... it's a great time to ask a lot for my home.

FACT: Real Estate is Hyper-Local! National data (normally reported by the media) is not necessarily reflective of what is happening in your segment of the market! Not all price-points have low inventory right now and not all neighborhoods do either!
Prices & inventory can vary a great deal in NoVA

BEST PRACTICE: Let me do a no-obligation analysis of the market and let's see what is real in your case.

I promise you... there are no 'shortcuts' to determine the right price for your home. It requires:
1) a thorough review of past sales
2) an assessment of current available inventory (your competition)
3) an understanding of 'supply and demand' for your type of home (location and price range).

If you ask me for a "ball park" at a party, you probably won't get it. Not because I can't make a guess, but because that kind of "guesstimating" doesn't serve you as a consumer, or me as a professional.

FRONT DOOR FUN FACT:
A red front door has been a symbol for many different things.

In early American tradition, a red door meant “welcome.”

Similarly, in the Chinese Feng Shui philosophy, a red door is known to create a welcoming energy.

In Scotland, homeowners paint their front doors red when they’ve paid off their mortgage, and in Biblical times, a red door symbolized protection from the Angel of Death.

What does a red door say to you?
