Ways to Increase the Value of Your Home

Simple ways to Increase your Home Value.

List of things that you can do to Increase your Home‘s Value.

At some point in our lives, we sell our home and move to a bigger house or our job requires us to move in a different state. Whatever the reason may be, there is always one thing that concerns us and that is “How much is my home’s worth?” The big question that we always have before we decide to sell our home. When we sell our home, we always want a little profit from what we originally purchased our home.

So what exactly can we do to maximize or increase the value of our home? Here are some simple ways that you can do to increase the value of your home.

1. Paint.

Matching Appliances can increase Home Value

Repainting your kitchen walls, cabinets and counters with a new fresh and modern scheme will give your kitchen a boost! Also, your appliances should match each other. If you are aiming for a stainless steel door, your oven, or the dishwasher should match. You can order a new door for your appliances, call the manufacturer or check online if they have a door replacement for your appliances. I think this one of the cheapest and most effective way to give your kitchen a fresh look. Click here for more tips on Updating your kitchen.

Landscaping increases home value

Nobody wants to live in a wasteland, that is if your landscaping is that bad. Landscaping your property can be a bit costly especially if you will be hiring a professional to do it for you. However, a property that is professionally done and with a gorgeous landscape can boost your home or your property value up to 28% and this is according to economist John Harris. A Portland, Ore., study found that trees with a sizable canopy growing within 100 feet of other houses added about $9,000 to their sale price and shaved two days off its time on the market, according to Houselogic.com. You can also visit their website for more information.

 

We all want to sell our home for a top dollar. However, we need to do our part to fix or replace whatever is broken in our home and throw whatever is not needed to create more space in our home. You can also request for a free Home valuation in San Diego area, click here.

Sell Your Home For Top Dollar With These Tips.

Sell your home successfully with these sales strategies from The Biszantz Connection.

Selling your home for top dollar

Strategies for selling your home for top dollar.

Selling your home for top dollar is a reality when you utilize the following tips before your home goes “live” on the internet for sale.  When I meet potential sellers I share these sales tips and others from my extensive experience representing people on the buy and sell side.

The Biszantz Connection has an extroadinarially high sales price to list price ratio by following these as well as other sales strategies.

The key is to present “a quality product” to the public that is indisputable in price and terms of the sale.

  • Have a licensed home inspector do a thorough inspection of the condition of your home before listing it for sale.
    • I always encourage my clients get a full report of the condition of the home from a professional source. It gives us the option to fix, replace any faulty items in the home to avoid it being a point of negotiation in an attempt to lower the purchase price in escrow. Who wants to find out that the upstairs guest bathroom leaks  into the kitchen ceiling?  Don’t be caught during the escrow and find yourself giving money back. Let the buyers home inspector struggle to find anything wrong with your home!
  • Get a termite clearance before listing your home for sale.
    •  To be able to offer a full termite clearance as a seller is a win/win for you. A buyer often is satisfied with your clearance and will not hire another termite company for their own inspection. Chances are you are going to have to get a termite clearance for any escrow involving a lender so you might as well have the termite company of your choice. If not, you may be left with no choice other than to use the buyers requested termite company….and they will not be working for you.
  • Excel in front curb appeal!
    • I cannot tell you how many times I have accompanied buyers into a home and when we pull up to the home, their mindset changes to….PASS in a milli-second. Once that happens, it is extremely hard to change their impression…no matter what is inside. Landscaping,  new paint is clearly worth a couple thousand dollars when you might be negotiating a difference between $50,000-$100,000 in purchase price.  How your home is presented reflects directly on the owner, their financial situation, need to sell, accurate or perceived. Bottom line, don’t appear to be desperate for a buyer. Bottom feeders come out at that point!

      Sales Strategies For Selling Your Home For Top Dollar

      Sales Strategies For Selling Your Home For Top Dollar

  • Do not ever settle for less than professional photographs of your home.
    • Presentation is everything when positioning a home for sale. Whether it is a $100,000 mobile home or a $20,000,000 estate on the sand makes absolutely no difference. For the price of a nice dinner, you can have beautiful photographs. When I look at home on the internet to show my buyers, I often pass at showing homes with amateur photographs for so many reasons. If it is presented this poorly to  thousands  on the internet…what is it going to look like in person?

Would you like more strategies on how to sell your home for a higher purchase price? It would be my pleasure to meet with you and create that winning strategy to get you top dollar at amazing speed on the sale of your home.

Happy Selling!

San Diego home prices in June rose 19% from a year ago.

San Diego home prices in June rose 19% from a year ago.

 Home price gains in San Diego outpace U.S.

San Diego home prices in June rose 19% from a year ago.

The pace of U.S. home-price increases began to slow by mid-year but not in San Diego County, where values took their largest annual jump in more than eight years, the S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Index showed on Tuesday.

San Diego home prices in June rose 19 percent from a year ago, which marks its largest year-over-year hike since March 2005. The latest data also shows San Diego is outpacing national home-price growth, which was 12 percent when tallying all 20 areas in the index.

This is often the storyline for supply-constrained counties like San Diego: A limited amount of land means a limited number of homes can be built, which tends to drive up prices, said Michael Lea, a real estate professor at San Diego State University.

“We have more land constraints than most other cities,” Lea added. Similar areas include Los Angeles and San Francisco.

All 20 major metros in the Case-Shiller report showed price gains in June’s report, but fewer cities saw faster growth this month than last month. In this report, six fit that bill. In the previous report, it was 10. Also, more than half of the areas in the index showed weaker month-to-month gains.
