REALTOR Fruitland

Purchasing a home is usually an emotional decision. Making minor changes can create major buyer APPEAL. Follow these simple tips to make a quick sale of your home with your Fruitland REALTOR!

Curb Appeal:

REALTOR fruitlandA new front door is one of the easiest ways to give your home a face-lift! Experts say that replacing your front door can also give you the highest return on investment. Home sellers are reported to recoup 97% of the new Front Door cost.

This is an upgrade that literally pays for itself. First impressions should set the scene for the rest of your home, and should make the buyer want to see the rest of your home.

  • Replace or paint your front door!
  • Make sure your doorbell functions well.
  • Repair any loose hardware on your front door.
  • Oil the door hinges.

Keep it Clean, Light & Bright!

Front Room Your Choice: Office, Den, or Living Room

Before you do anything else… Declutter your home. Decluttering your home makes it appear bigger, brighter, and much more appealing to potential buyers! Plus, selling your home need NOT be as stressful as you might think… If you keep things clean and organized!

Your home should look and feel welcoming as soon as potential buyers come in the front door. When home buyers enter your front door they usually form their opinion for the rest of your house.

Your foyer is the first area potential home buyers see when they enter your home. Just like good curb appeal, you want to make it feel welcoming and bright. Well-lit areas are the most welcoming spaces.

  • Use light neutral color schemes that brighten your home.
  • Hang a beautiful mirror to make any space look bigger and brighter!

Lighting: Use a combination of permanent lights and other lamps to make your home look welcoming anytime of day or night.  Try using a decorative chandeliers, and lamps to brighten your home.

Compliment Don’t Distract From Your Homes Design

Effectively stage your home by flaunting it’s strengths. You can do this by displaying updates, and making focal points in key rooms. Focus on decorating the kitchen and living rooms with the best that you have.

The best way to display furniture is by grouping it in sections of the carpet and away from the walls.

Keep wall art simple, it can make or break any real estate deal. Large areas of vacant wall space can be boring, so incorporate simple artwork that complements your wall color!

Gorgeous front doors, well-lit foyers, simple decor, and neutral tones make lasting impressions that help your home sell fast!

Fruitland and New Plymouth Home Sales are UP!

First Time Home Buyers are Leading the Market!

The National Association of Realtors® called it “an encouraging sign” in the Real Estate market. First-time home buyers pushed home sales during the month of May to their peak since May in the year of 2009!

Many home sellers had written off first-timer home buyers because of stagnant paying jobs, tighter credit requirements, and a seeming preference towards renting. BUT the existing-home sales report from the National Association of Realtors shows something different!

First-time home buyers in May were up to 32% of total home sales! That’s up from the 30% they represented in April and 27% from a year ago.

NAR’s chief economist {Lawrence Yun} attributes the first-time buyers come back to “strong job gains among young adults, less expensive mortgage insurance, and lenders offering low down payment programs.” He also predicted even MORE first-timers to enter the market this year depending on “how fast rates and prices rise.”
