Happy New Year!
It's amazing how fast the holiday season passes by, and now we are already a week into 2015! I am not one for setting New Year's resolutions, I prefer to have a list of ongoing goals that I'm always working towards. With that said, one of the things that I'd like to do before this year is done is to remodel my kitchen. Have you thought about celebrating the New Year with a kitchen remodel yourself? If you need some inspiration, check out these 12 Kitchen Trends that are all the rage in 2015 for new kitchen designs. #4 is definitely my favorite, what's yours?
If you're like me, you're up for a good scare once in a while. I enjoy the chance to meet up with friends for a visit to a staged haunted house in October, and I adore seeing all the little witches and ghosts and goblins running around every Halloween. However, I don't think I'd ever be brave enough to live in a "real-life haunted house" such as one of these that are currently for sale on the market. How about you? Would you like to share your living space with things that go BUMP in the night?
Today marks the first official day of Autumn, and the weather outside could not agree more! Although it's sad to see our gorgeous summer come to an end, I am looking forward to the crisp air and beautiful colors of the fall!
One of the things I enjoy the most about owning my own home is getting to decorate it around the holidays, and one of the first things that come to mind in the fall for me is Halloween! I love all of the wonderful pumpkins, scarecrows, and getting all decked out for the trick-or-treaters that stop by. If you get into the fall spirit as much as I do, you'll especially love these fun ideas for decorating your front door from GoodsHomeDesign.com.
Are you getting ready to sell and not sure how to make your home look it's best? Check out these tips from Celebrity Home Stager, Meridith Baer. I personally agree with her go-to tip: Decluttering! Removing personal items and knick knacks from the home help potential buyers to visualize themselves moving in with their own belongings.
Another of my personal tips is to make sure your home smells fresh! A bad odor in the house can make the wrong kind of first impression and keep potential buyers from focussing on the features of your home while they are trying to figure out what that smell is. So, try taking a step outside, and go into your home with a fresh set of lungs to breathe that air in. If you notice an unpleasant scent when you first walk in, you can bet that others will too.
If you live in King County and have been considering selling your home, now is the perfect time to act and enjoy the benefits that the current market in your area has created for Sellers!
As you can see in the graph below, the low inventory of homes for sale has helped drive prices back up to near peak 2007 prices, allowing more home owners to get equity out of their properties and to sell quickly! Well qualified buyers are anxiously anticipating new listings in your area. If you are interested in putting your home on the market and taking advantage of today's opportunities, please contact me for more information!
