The Buyers Guide to Finding the Perfect Property

The Buyers Guide to Finding the Perfect Property

If you are someone that is in the market for a house, you will know just how difficult the process of finding a house really is. The market is extremely congested with homes to choose from, but a lot of them do not live up to the standard that you would expect. The houses that you do end up liking are always way out of budget, so it is no wonder why so many people end up giving up and settling on renting a property. Buying a house doesn’t have to be so hard and if you know how to do it properly, you should be successful. Here is a buyer’s guide to finding the perfect property. 

Look for leads 

Just searching for potential homes on popular websites and similar sites will not give you a lot of good selection. Some of the better homes are not so publicly advertised, so looking for alternative leads is a great way to find homes that are not too expensive and fit what you need.  

Something that you can do is contact a real estate agent individually. Building a relationship with a real estate agent will put you at the top of the list and when they find an available house, you will be able to get a viewing of it first. You can also sign up for sms real estate alerts, which means you will get a text whenever a house pops up in the area or price point that you are looking for.  Once you have signed up for the alerts, you don’t need to do anything but wait, so finding a home will be much more stress-free.  

Go to auction  

If money is the main problem you are facing when purchasing a house, we recommend that you try and buy a home at auction. Most homes that are sold at auction are put to auction because their owners did not have the funds to pay their mortgage and the banks want to make a quick sale so they can make their money back. Due to how fast the bank wants to get rid of the house, they will usually sell it for an exceptionally reasonable price. You have to be fast as there is never any notice when a house is put on the market, so you should attend a few auctions and see what pops up. It can be a difficult one as you may be tempted to go for the first house that you see, but you need to try and hold back as you may find a better house that suits your needs.  

Flip a house 

If you can’t find a house that fits your desires, why not look into flipping a house. Flipping a house consists of purchasing a low-cost house that is in need of some work and then doing it up. This is a great option for anyone out there that is unable to find a house that meets their needs, as it means that they can build it up so that it works for you.  

Having an empty shell of a home means that you can decide what features it has and even how the rooms are laid out. If you are someone that feels as though they need complete creative control then this gives you the opportunity to take this control without worrying about having to redo someone else’s work, which can take some time. We recommend going down this route if you are someone with quite a lot of DIY knowledge, as you will be able to do a lot of the work alone.

Home Decoration: How to Pick the Right Paint Color 

Home Decoration: How to Pick the Right Paint Color 

If you are someone that has recently moved into a new home, then you would have encountered one of the biggest problems faced by homeowners everywhere; what color should you paint your house? Choosing a paint color is a big step as once you have made a move to paint your house that color, going back is not that easy.  

If you are currently experiencing a situation where you are trying to pick the color for your paints, then you may feel as though you are at a loss. Don’t worry, here are some of our tips on picking the right paint color for you, based on advice from the best of trim. 

Look at the furniture you have  

5 Tips To Pick The Right Living Room Seating | Pottery BarnThe best way that you can pick out what paint to use in your house is by looking at the furniture that you already have. Looking at the furniture that you already have will give you a good idea of whether or not the paint that you pick will match. If you go online, you can look up something called complementary colors. You simply input the color of the majority of your items, and it will then tell you which colors fit well with those that you already have.  

Your favorite colors 

To really choose which color paint you are going to use, you should first look at what your own taste is. You are the person that is going to be surrounded by the paint; then it has to be based on something that you love. There is no point focusing on what will be fashionable if it is something that you don’t like and so you can instead choose something that you enjoy so that you can be surrounded by things that make you happy.  

8  Mistakes to Avoid when Selling your Home

8 Mistakes to Avoid when Selling your Home

When it comes to selling your home you will need to make sure that everything that you do in the preparation process is done in an organized fashion to help avoid the possibility of making a mistake that could cost you a serious amount of money. There are many things that you need to remember so I would recommend that you compile a list or some sort of document organizing all of the aspects so that you do not forget anything later down the line when it could have a damaging effect on the overall sale.

If you are unsure about anything within the sale process of your home then a great source of information could be someone who has done it before, nobody knows the process better than someone who has been through the sale of a house and dealt with their own issues. The best way to learn from something is to rectify the mistake yourself so that you have a better understanding of the house sale market and how to go through the process the right way. Another great source of information would be the state agents you have registered with as they depend upon the proper sale of your home in order to earn their commission and further fund their own business.

 

Presentation

How you present your house to prospective buyers will have a direct effect on the likelihood of them going ahead with a sale, it is a common mistake within the selling process of any property that the presentation and cleanliness of the home don’t matter. This could not be further from the truth and if you want to help make sure that your house sells at the price and time period you would like you should be doing all that you can to present the property to a high standard.

Inspections

Another big mistake that is made within selling houses is neglecting the importance of having a professional house inspection before you start showing people around, if you’re not an industry professional it is likely that you will not be able to pick up on the more subtle issues around the home which could seriously impact the progression of your sale. It is very important that you make sure you get a home inspection before selling to avoid the embarrassing situation of showing around a potential buyer only to find that there is a maintenance or decoration issue that could have been fixed previously.

Maintenance

A huge mistake that is so often made within the house sale industry would be to neglect any required maintenance that needs to be done on the house, if you are serious about selling your house then you should definitely take the time to look over any potential issues with the property as it could be quite embarrassing for these to be discovered by the buyer.

House Tours

Many inexperienced house sellers make the mistake of avoiding group house tours when doing this can significantly increase the chances of you getting a sale, if you have a lot of interest in your property you can hold an event to showcase to multiple potential buyers which will also show that there is a lot of demand and hopefully speed up the sale for you.

Asking For Help

If you are not the most experienced with selling houses then there really is no shame in asking for help and advice when you need it, consulting someone who is experienced with selling properties could be just what you need to avoid making simple mistakes that could have a serious impact on the overall sale.

Rushing The Sale

Another huge mistake that is often made with first-time home sellers is that they will try and rush the sale so that they can get the stressful process over with, although selling your home is a stressful process you should take your time somewhat to help avoid making mistakes. If you rush the sale and do not think about the timing you may sell the property for less than you could have got for it.

Choosing The Right Agents

Selling with an estate agent is a great thing to do if you are not the most experienced property seller, however, you need to make sure that you are not taking on an agency that is not looking after your best interests. I would recommend that you do plenty of research into your chosen agency to ensure that they have positive customer feedback.

Making expensive Changes To Your Home

A final huge mistake that many people make when selling their home would be to complete expensive renovations before going ahead with a sale in the hopes of bringing up the value. This is not often effective and can end up costing you more money than you have the potential to make.

How do Real-Estate Agents Work Out Property Value

How do Real-Estate Agents Work Out Property Value

When a real estate agent works out a property value there are loads of factors that must be taken into account to come up with the final property value. If you’re thinking of getting your property valued, it’s great to know what things will increase the property value and what won’t add much to it. Some great things in a property that will lead an estate agent to value your property higher include things like how it’s crafted if you’re building a property then crafting with concrete will help to increase the value, double glazing windows also help to increase the value as well as if your property is energy efficient. If you’re getting a property value, then it’s good to have an idea of how to figure out the value so you can pick the right estate agent for you. Most estate agents will disagree slightly on the value of a property so if you know the process it’ll make it much easier for you to find an estate agent that is right for you and your property. We have talked to estate agents to learn all about the valuation process, and we’ve simplified it for you here, keep reading to find out all about it. 

Main Property Valuation Factors

Valuing property correctly is one of the first things that real-estate agents learn and once they have more experience it becomes much easier for them. Experienced real estate agents will be able to look at a property and quickly make an estimate for a value and most of the time they’re very close. They have to look at many different things to find an accurate price and whilst you think that the size and quality of your property may be the most important things many other things come into play too. One thing that really affects the value of your property is the location of it, if it’s in an area with a high crime then the value of your property will drop. Real estate agents also have to have an awareness of the current market reports and what the local market is currently like. This includes being aware of things like the demand for houses in the area and they can work this out by looking at things previous sales in the area. Whilst you may want to trust the estate agent that values your property the highest as you want your property to sell for as much as it can, but sometimes this is more of a hindrance as if it’s valued too high then it won’t sell. 

How To Choose an Estate-Agent

We’ve found some fantastic tips on how to find the best estate agent that will suit you and your property. The best tips are to speak to your estate agent to make sure that you can trust them and also ask for evidence so you can make sure that your property has been valued correctly. Also, be wary of long contracts, 6 months is the best time, try to stay away from 6 month contacts.  

Is This the Most Charming BnB in the World?

Is This the Most Charming BnB in the World?

Arguably one of the worst aspects of taking a cross country trip is having to find somewhere to stay, this is especially the case if you are taking a trip to DC. DC has a number of residential options for anyone that is choosing to take a trip to the country’s capital, however, it can be difficult to sift through the long lists of pricey hotels and inaccurately advertised Airbnb’s.

If you are someone that wants to make your trip special by choosing an interesting BnB or hotel, you will be faced with a new list of difficulties. It can be difficult to pick out a gem among all of the options and more often than not, the BnBs that advertise themselves to be a step above the rest never usually are.

Though obviously not everyone has the same expectations when it comes to finding a good BnB, we think that we have found the perfect BnB to quench that thirst for an interesting trip.

 

Adam’s Inn

Though you may not have heard about it, Adam’s Inn has been operating in the heart of DC for the last 40 years and has gained a positive reputation among locals and visitors alike.

There is nothing more charming than the appeal of antique exterior decor, which oozes elegance along with that comforting feeling of being at home. The quaint reception area of the BnB automatically tells you a great deal about what you can expect from the rest of your stay. It really does feel like a second home, with friendly staff and rustic decor. You get that sense of ease that is often missed when staying at an uncomfortable and more expensive hotel, which automatically starts your trip on a great foot.

 

The decor

Walking into the Adam’s Inn feels much like walking into a time machine. This BnB has been operating for four decades and very little has changed in terms of decor within this time. The hotel is rich in solid wood upholstery which really adds a certain charm that harkens back to the classic American look.

For some people, this classic look may be off-putting as it suggests that all of the BnB’s amenities may be dated. However, this really isn’t the case as the BnB still offers all that you would expect in a modern hotel. There is a flat-screen TV in every bedroom which means when you get home from your busy day of tourism, you’ll have the opportunity to lie back, relax and watch some of your favorite shows.  There is also free access to the internet within the BnB, which is a really convenient feature. This is especially the case if you are visiting from another country and don’t want to foot the bill of expensive data charges.

A really clever characteristic of the Adam’s Inn is maintaining the dated look of an American BnB, while also applying all the modern comforts that you could desire. An example of this being put into practice is through the beds in the BnB. The beds use the original frames in order to maintain a vintage appearance, however, they have replaced older mattresses with some of the best memory foam mattresses that are available on the market.

 

Location

In such a big place like DC, location is everything. Local estate agents such as the house guys dc often talk about just how vital being situated in the right location is when staying or living in DC and Adam’s inn are able to boast a fantastic location without an extortionate price tag.

Adam’s inn is located next to everything you would need to see when in DC. One of their main attraction points is that the BnB is located within a close range of local zoos, which makes it the perfect location for any animal lovers.

If you are of drinking age you may be excited to know that the BnB is also in a prime nightlife location. There are dozens of bars and clubs located within a couple of miles of the hotel, so if you are someone that wants to see what the DC nightlife has to offer, then this BnB may be your best bet.

Don’t Put All of Your Eggs in One Basket

One of the most important things you’re going to need to remember is that you’re going to need a new house to move into once your home is finally sold. In all the hustle and bustle and excitement of selling your home, you’d be surprised how many people actually forget to look for a new home. Whilst it can often take a lot of time for houses to be sold, you may actually find that once a buyer is interested, the property may be swept up quicker than you imagined. You don’t want to be left temporarily homeless and only be searching for your new dream home on the side of the street after handing off the keys to the new owner. Be sure to begin researching for your next home long before you decide on putting your house on the market.

 

Don’t get complacent when you decide on a home as well, as you’ll soon find out, things move quickly in the property market, so it’s probably wise to have a long line of contingency plans in case your dream home gets snatched up before your house is sold. As long as you keep on top of your research you’ll be sure to find the perfect home for you to move into once you sell your house. Luckily, if you’re not sure where to search, there are any number of property sites online that are specifically tailored to Australia. There are always plenty of like-minded people looking to sell their homes, so you shouldn’t have to worry about not finding a place. It may also be worth getting in contact with the sellers and explaining the situation, they may be willing to hold the house for you if you’re almost finished selling your own house.

The Major Sets of Differences Between Property Management and Real Estate

The Major Sets of Differences Between Property Management and Real Estate

Property Management and Real Estate are two separate industries that are often summoned up as one. People who are unaware of the differences go ahead to classify the same as one based on certain forms of overlapping. Due to this mix, the truth of the matter will be hidden, i.e. the differences. So to put an end to these misconceptions, we are here to talk about the significant differences that underlie both these industries. Hence, go ahead and keep reading to know more.

1. The Process

When it comes to the process or the entire mode of functionally, the real estate industry goes ahead to deal with listings and selling of properties. This particular task is done on behalf of the owner as a move to facilitate the entire process and make things head in the right direction. On the other hand, property management deals with the management aspects of the property. For example, if there are repairs, tenant issues and other maintenance problems, then the management will enter the picture in order to clear things out. This is also done on behalf of the owner.

2. The Relationship

The kind of relationship that you share with a real estate agent and a property manager tends to differ for a whole bunch of reasons. Real estate agents are here to facilitate the process, and anything above the same will not fall under their list. As a result, the relationship that you share with a real estate agent will be transactional, and once the purchase is done, the deal will be completed. But the process or the relationship with a property manager begins soon after purchasing a particular property.

Yes, that’s right. The duration of the same is longer, and they extend their support to the overall development of your property. From looking into small details, they go further into managing massive forms of repairs that need the touch of a professional. As a result, this long term relationship is contractual, and a percentage of the rent is paid to the property manager.

3. The Industry

In terms of business, both these industries come ahead to quote different terms as their transactions are also quite different. The property management industry is relatively vibrant and carries on the process without facing constant changes like the real estate industry. While the value of a property either remains the same or goes up, the real estate industry at times enters a slump. Due to that, both these institutes offer different sets of opportunities, in case you’re looking to start a career. So analyse both these differences and utilise the knowledge for all the right reasons.
