Increase Your Home Value with these Designer Tips

by Melissa Thompson


When designing and decorating your home, unless you plan on living there forever, it’s important to consider resale value.  Since your home is likely your largest asset, you want to be sure to get the highest return on your investment when you sell it.  So, design upgrades should not only appeal to your aesthetic desires, but should also have a positive impact on resale value.  Here are some tips for renovations that designers have found to be most beneficial in helping houses sell:

  1. Choose a design that makes a room feel bigger than it is.  If you select and place furniture to fit the scale of a room, it will go a long way in making the space feel larger than it actually is.  Even though buyers will know the square footage, the perception of rooms being larger will have a powerful impact. When rooms feel more spacious, buyers see more potential in the home.
     
  2. Stick with tradition.  If you are redesigning a room, don’t feel like you need to get rid of everything you have and purchase all new things. Keep some of the home’s traditional elements. You’re never going to please every potential buyer, but making too many changes can backfire. People like to see homes that stay true to their roots.
     
  3. If you don’t have a walk-in closet in your master bedroom, add one.  A roomy, functional walk-in closet will add value to any home. Buyers see it as a luxury and are always excited to see one.  It might feel like an expensive upgrade, but it is one that will pay off in the long run.
     
  4. Don’t neglect the kitchen.  Of all the rooms in your home, an upgraded kitchen is the one that will get you the best return on investment.  The kitchen is the heart of the home. Even if you don’t love cooking, and order out more than you cook, it’s still used for eating, drinking, and storage.  You don’t even have to do a lot to make your kitchen stand out.  Even small upgrades like new light fixtures and hardware will add value to your home.
     
  5. The more storage your home has, the better. Buyers seek homes that provide a lot of storage space.  You truly can’t have too much!  If your home is lacking in storage, adding some will increase its value.  You may have to be creative, but it will be worth it! 7 Sneaky Ways to Add More Storage All Over Your House
     
  6. Fresh paint makes a huge difference.  You don’t have to make huge changes to make your home more appealing.  A simple, fresh coat of paint can give your home a whole new look and feel.  It’s one of the most cost-effective ways to update your home.  When choosing colors, stick with neutrals because they are a safer choice when selling your home.
     
  7. Be environmentally friendly. Millennials purchasing homes are looking for energy efficient, environmentally friendly options. You will not only reap the benefits of living in a more energy efficient home, but you will impress potential buyers who want to do their part in protecting the environment. 4 Eco-Friendly Upgrades for Your Home
     
  8. Bathrooms get you a lot of bang for your buck.  Second only to kitchens in importance to retail value, an upgraded bathroom is sure to impress potential buyers.  Since they are small spaces, little changes like replacing an outdated vanity, changing light fixtures, and updating hardware can go a long way. 

Whether you plan to be in your home for a long time, or you’re thinking of selling soon, make smart choices with your home design upgrades for your own enjoyment and for a great return on your investment.

A Guide to Cleaning Your Home After Selling

by Melissa Thompson


SOLD!  The word you’ve been waiting to hear!  You’ve received that much wanted call from your Realtor that your home is off the market. It won’t be yours for much longer; soon you will be moving out.  Pride in ownership means that you will likely want to leave your house looking its very best for its new owners. In some states, real estate purchase contracts stipulate that the home is to be “swept clean” meaning the seller should at least sweep the floors and leave walls and ceilings bare. But the language can often be vague.  Sample Purchase and Sale Agreement for TN

Here is a list of cleaning tips for home sellers to help you leave the house reasonably clean and to create a feeling of goodwill toward your buyer:

Cleaning the Interior of the Home Before Moving Out:

  • Remove all personal property.
  • Vacuum the floors.
  • Clean kitchen appliances including the inside of the refrigerator and over.  Wipe down the counters.
  • Scrub sinks and tubs.
  • Wipe down interior cabinets and shelves.
  • Wash tile/vinyl/wood flooring.

Cleaning the Garage Prior to Closing:

  • Remove personal belongings.
  • Throw away trash.
  • Properly dispose of toxic chemicals.
  • Sweep the floor.
  • Stack items pertaining to the home such as paint cans, roofing materials or extra flooring.  Check to make sure the buyer wants the extra materials first.

Keep in mind that you want to leave the home in the condition that you would like to find your new home.  Your buyers will appreciate it! 

The smart thing to do is to NOT wait until you have sold your house to start getting it ready for moving out. Give yourself plenty of time to get it done so that you are not rushing to complete tasks on move-out day. You will be moving in to your own new home as well, and you won’t want to be going back and forth between homes trying to get things done once you’ve moved. 5 Things to Do Before Moving Out of Your House

  3. Patch dead areas with sod.  Re-sodding is the best bet if you have large dead areas. Sod can be installed any time of year…just make sure you water it frequently until it sets.

Money Saving Tips for Homeowners

by Melissa Thompson


There are a lot of perks to home ownership, but let’s face it; it can be expensive.  You’re not only making a mortgage payment every month, but you are also responsible for maintaining your home.  But there are lots of easy ways to save money without ever leaving the house. Follow these tips and start saving today!

  1. Save money on your electric bill by utilizing natural ways to cool your house.  During the spring and summer, open your windows and use fans to get the air circulating through your home.  Ceiling fans will help too. Moving the air through the house will help cool it down quite a bit.
     
  2. Another way to save on your electric bill is to line dry your clothes.  Dryers use a lot of electricity, and there are many good reasons to choose line drying.  Not only is it an energy saver, but it may extend the life of your clothing! Top 10 Reasons to Line Dry Laundry
     
  3. Get rid of cable television. With all the options for streaming shows on apps like Hulu and Netflix, you could save a lot of money by ending your relationship with cable and using apps to stream your favorite programs.  You might be surprised to discover that even after upgrading your internet, you will still pay less per month than you did for cable television.
     
  4. Always unplug.  Even when you are not using an appliance, if you keep it plugged in, it is still pulling electricity.  It may not seem like much, but over years you can save quite a bit by unplugging when not using things.  Chances are you are not going to want to be bothered with walking around your house to unplug everything, but to make it a little easier, consider using power strips so you can just unplug that at the end of the day.
     
  5. Use a shopping list.  This may sound silly, but when you go shopping without a list you often come home with way more than you need.  Make a list and stick to it. It will not only make shopping more efficient, but it will save you money in the long run.
     
  6. Learn how to do basic home maintenance.  You can save a ton of money over time by being able to take care of home maintenance yourself.  By doing small tasks like replacing filters and cleaning out dust, you can lengthen the lifespan of many appliances, thus saving money that way as well.  Home Maintenance for Dummies Cheat Sheet
     
  7. Bundle up and save on heating costs.  Invest in quality, warm blankets so you can turn the heat down and still be warm and cozy when you sleep at night.  Decreasing your heat by just a few degrees can save you a lot of money over time.
     
  8. Create a budget and try to stick to it. By creating a budget, you will be more conscientious about your spending.  It will not only help you to see where you are spending too much, it will also assist you in prioritizing your spending.

Saving money is important.  Whether you’re saving for retirement or for a special family vacation, it’s the little things you do that make a big difference in the long run!

6 Tips to Becoming a Landlord in Memphis

by Melissa Thompson


If investing in Memphis real estate isn’t on your ‘To Do’ list in 2019, you may want to reconsider as Memphis made Forbes.com list of Best Markets For Real Estate Investments in 2019. Memphis is on this list because the local economy is doing well with job growth at 2.2% and housing prices are in line with income prices.

If you have read our blog post, Investing in Real Estate – What You Need to Know, and have taken the leap and bought an investment property, you may be thinking “Now what?” Don’t panic! Here are 6 Tips to get you started on your way to becoming a landlord:

1. Know Landlord-Tenant Law

Most states, Tennessee included, have very specific state Landlord-Tenant laws regarding things like security deposits, landlord access, and evictions. There are also national laws regulating Fair Housing and discrimination. You will want to do your homework and become familiar with these laws as violations can be costly.

2. Screen Tenants

Tenant screening is one of the most important steps to becoming a landlord. Thorough screening will help you to eliminate a multitude of problems further down the road. Use a standard application and require a credit check, background check, and references from employers and past landlords. There are online tenant screening services to help make this process convenient and manageable.

It is also a good idea to meet your prospective tenant in person. Make sure this is someone you want to do business with.

3. Have It In Writing

Always, always, always have everything in writing. You may hit it off with your prospective tenant or be renting to a friend and feel that you are both on the same page but don’t fool yourself, having a written lease is a MUST! Your lease should include items such as a code of conduct, late payments, property maintenance, pets, and landlord accessibility. Tennessee lease agreements can be found online that are easily customizable for your property.

4. Perform Inspections

Frequent inspections (every 3-6 months) will ensure your property maintains its value. Let’s face it tenants are not always diligent with reporting issues. Having a dark spot on the ceiling that may indicate a water leak is probably not top of their list of priorities. But for you, catching the leak early can mean the difference between an inexpensive problem and a very costly one. Don’t feel like you are imposing on the tenant by making inspections. Inspections go a long way to keeping good tenants.

5. Make Repairs Promptly

Another thing that makes tenants happy is making repairs promptly. Don’t make them suffer through a leaking toilet or a garbage disposal that doesn’t work. Your interest in the property encourages a tenant’s interest in the property which keeps your property in good condition.

6. Collect Rents On Time

This may sound like a no-brainer but is gets landlords into hot water more often than you would think. Becoming friendly with a tenant and giving them leniency on rent deadlines is a slippery slope to an eviction and ultimate foreclosure. Be friendly and polite but firm when enforcing the terms of your lease agreement.

Following these guidelines makes for happy tenants and happy landlords!

Home Sellers - How to Set the Right Price for Your Home

by Melissa Thompson


When you decide to sell your house it’s easy to get overwhelmed with all the details you need to think about.  The best thing to do is take things one step at a time. One thing that you will have to do is set a price for you home.  Deciding how much you want to ask for your home is complicated.  As the owner, the value you place on your home may be different that the value a potential buyer places on it.  You not only have a financial investment in it, but also and emotional one.  But when buyers think of value, they are thinking primarily about price.  The asking price for your property can attract buyers, or it can turn them off completely. A home that is not priced right can sit on the market for a long time, which can lead potential buyers to think there is something wrong with it.  The first step toward determining the right price for your home is to hire an experienced, professional Realtor who can use their expertise and knowledge of the market to assist you.

Working with your Realtor is crucial.  But it is also vital that you have a clear understanding of what your home is worth.  Learning about your home’s fair market value will help you evaluate the price your Realtor recommends.  Remember that you and your Realtor are a team and together you can decide on a price that will be profitable for everyone.

The first thing to do when trying to determine the right price for your home is to do some research. You can use an online  Estimating Tool  to plug in your address and find approximately how much your house is worth. They base their estimates on your home’s square footage and real estate data they have collected, such as recent home sales in your local market. But it’s important to remember that these results are very general and do not speak to your specific situation.  If the online estimate does not align with your Realtor’s advice, lean toward your Realtor’s suggested price. 

Another important aspect to consider when pricing your home is how it compares to other similar homes in the area.  Your Realtor will likely run the average sales prices of at least three Comps to assess your home’s value.  There are several factors that go into choosing “comps”. They are: age, location, square footage, and number of bedrooms and bathrooms. Your Realtor will look at the difference between each comp’s listing price, and the price at which it sold. Then there will be research into price reductions and why they happened, if relevant.  Meanwhile, your Realtor will also rely on their own knowledge of the local market.  When selecting comps, your Realtor will generally look for properties that sold in the previous three months, within a one-mile radius of your home. In addition, you will want to figure out what your competition is. So, your Realtor will check out properties that are currently for sale in your area to find out how your home compares to them. 

Understanding the current real estate market in your area will also have a large impact on your pricing strategy.   If you’re in a Seller's Market, that means demand from buyers is high and the number of homes on the market is low. In this market, you may be able to price your home slightly higher than market value. However, if it’s a Buyer's Market, buyers are at an advantage and you might have to price your home slightly below the market value to entice buyers. Your Realtor can help you navigate the current market in your area so that you price your home right.

Home Inspection Checklist for Home Sellers

by Melissa Thompson


It’s very exciting when you accept an offer on your home and you are ready to sell. But that excitement can go away quickly if the buyer’s home inspection doesn’t go well.  Smart homebuyers will never make a purchase without having a property professionally inspected first, so you can pretty much count on that happening.  So, it’s important for you, as the seller, to be prepared for the home inspection.  By identifying potential problems beforehand, you can make the repairs needed to avoid unpleasant surprises during the inspection. Cheap Home Repairs That Can Save You Thousands

Use this checklist to help you prepare for the home inspection:

  1. Make sure that all lights are working and all switches are covered. The same goes for electrical outlets.  A general home inspection will include a visual review of the electrical system.  If the inspector finds that a light isn’t working, there is a likelihood he will recommend that a licensed contractor to check it out.
  2. Take care of routine maintenance.  Put new batteries in smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors and be sure they are working properly. Also, put fresh air filters on your air conditioning units and furnaces.  If buyers see that small things aren’t being maintained, they will be worried that big things aren’t either. 
  3. Clean out areas around appliances so they can easily be inspected.  It will be difficult for the inspector if your laundry room is full of clothes or the dishwasher is full of dirty dishes.  If you have a gas fireplace, be sure the pilot light is lit so that the inspector can turn it on.  If the inspector is not able to do that, he may suggest to the buyer that you show them the fireplace works before the sale is complete.  That just adds one more thing for you to worry about.
  4. Check out the exterior of your home.  View your house the way you would if you were buying it again. Is there peeling paint or hanging gutters?  If so, you can fix these problems prior to inspection so that they are not issues for the buyers.
  5. Test windows and doors.  Inspectors are going to be looking for windows and doors that open and close easily.  If you have windows that are sticking, you can fix this with very little money. Simply purchase a silicone spray from a home improvement store.  Clean out the tracks of sliding doors and lubricate them as well, if needed.
  6. Paint over old water stains.  Even after you have fixed a leaking pipe or roof, water stains can be left behind.  And even after the inspector has assured them that there any current moisture issues, old stains will scare buyers off just as much as new stains will. 
  7. Look for mold.  Mold will scare a buyer away fast!  So be sure to check basements, attics, bathrooms and garages for any signs of mold.  If you find any, deal with it before the inspection…and before you lose your buyers.
  8. Declutter before inspection.  The inspector isn’t going to care how messy your house it or how it’s staged, but he will appreciate being able to easily access everything he needs to inspect.
  9. Don’t try to hide issues.  Honesty matters. If you find something prior to inspection that is going to need to be fixed, notify the prospective buyer.  You don’t want the buyer to think you are trying to hide something.  If you don’t have the money on hand to make necessary repairs, you may be able to negotiate by offering a credit at closing so the new owners can do the repairs themselves.

Tidy Home - Happy Home

by Melissa Thompson


A new year has arrived and now is a good time to start breaking bad habits that lead to an untidy home.  If you are one of those people who look around your house and wonder how it got to be such a mess, chances are you aren’t even aware of the bad habits that have formed over time and have you feeling overwhelmed with housework.  But there are indeed certain things that people who keep tidy homes don’t do. If you are guilty of doing these things, you can now begin the process of changing your habits and creating the tidy home you crave.

Things people with tidy homes DON’T do:

  • Tidy people don’t overdo it.  People with tidy homes tend to be minimalists. They don’t have a lot of extraneous furnishings and knick knacks.  They also don’t over decorate.  They value the pristine nature of clear surfaces. And let’s face it, the less you have, the less you have to clean.  Imagine how quickly you can dust a room when you only have a few clear surfaces to clean! How to Master the Art of Minimalism
     
  • Tidy people don’t settle down for the night until they have cleaned up.  After a long day, it’s tempting to leave the dinner dishes in the sink, the mail on the counter and bags on the floor so that you can just relax.  But tidy people are “never leave until tomorrow what can be done today” kind of people.  If you clean up before you settle down to watch television, read, or go to bed, it’s like resetting for the next day.  It will be easier for you to relax if you know you will be waking up to a neat and clean home.
     
  • Tidy people don’t let their homes get messy all day and then try to clean it all up at one time.  Staying on top of the mess is key to keeping a tidy home.  If you complete small tasks on a regular basis, you will never get to the point where you have to spend hours cleaning the whole house at once.
     
  • Tidy people never run out of cleaning supplies.  They figure out what products they like and they stock up on them.  And guess what? They keep them tidy and organized.  Two story house? They have cleaning supplies stored both downstairs and upstairs.  They probably even have two vacuum cleaner so that they don’t have to drag one up and down the steps. 
     
  • Tidy people don’t use the floor as a spot to store things.  If you have been to the home of a tidy person you probably noticed there is nothing on the floor…no bags, books, magazines, or baskets with blankets and pillows.  In a tidy home everything has a place and there is a place for everything.
     
  • Tidy people keep a schedule.  They don’t clean randomly “as needed”. They schedule tasks and keep to that schedule as much as possible.  You will find it surprising how easy your house cleaning will be when you break it up into small tasks done on a regular basis. How Often You Should Clean Everything
