Here are three simple, smart upgrades you can make now that will appeal to buyers for years to come:

Thermostat. Smart thermostats allow you to adjust the temperature of your house directly from your phone. Optimizing heating and cooling can decrease energy and translate to substantial energy savings.

Carbon Monoxide/Smoke Detectors. Smart carbon monoxide and smoke detectors employ innovative features such as self-testing, direct communication with your cell phone, and advanced sensors that can detect both slow-burning and fast-burning fires.

Keyless Entry. New keyless entry devices allow homeowners to remotely unlock their doors or open their garage doors from their cell phones. Enjoy the peace of mind knowing, for certain, that you remembered to lock your door or close the garage door every morning.

In the Market to Sell Your Home?

Are you considering making a move to a new home?

If so, there are a few things to consider before you list…from timing and your financial portfolio, to your home’s equity and down payment.

home for sale

Let me help you get started.

Upsize or downsize. Is your family expanding or is your home becoming an empty nest with your children off to college? Changes like that make it a good time to consider a new home.

Debts and savings. If you’ve reduced or removed non-mortgage debt and have up to six months of expenses saved, that’s a great start. Having an emergency savings is always important, and especially when considering a buying or selling a home for those unexpected surprises.

Home equity. Is your home equity at least 20%? If so, you’re in a good place to buy a new home. Having 20% down (or more) on a home allows the removal of PMI (private mortgage insurance) which could save hundreds of dollars each year.

Home improvement. Even with luxury homes, plan to have extra saved for home improvements. From updating paint colors to refreshing landscaping and outdoor living areas, it helps to have a home improvement savings ready to go.

Work with a pro. By partnering with me, your Realtor, we will sit down to review your home buying budget, your home needs and timeframe to be sure that selling your home is the right decision.
If you’re in the market to make a move, contact me. We’ll work together to make a home selling plan. Also, I love referrals. If you know someone who is looking to buy or sell a home, please share my name. I look forward to helping.
