    Winter Home Renovation Tips

    Interior Kitchen RemodelThe winter is a great time for home renovations for a few reasons. Some renovations are less expensive during the off-season because prices tend to increase during the spring and summer for both services and supplies. Also, you may be able to get permit approvals and time scheduled with the contractors more quickly since this is a slower time of year for them.

    Here are a few tips for successful winter renovations.

    Focus on the Interior

    Since it’s cold outside and the weather may affect certain projects, try to focus your efforts on interior improvements. Projects like basement remodeling, painting an enclosed porch, kitchen upgrades, laying flooring, repairing drywall, and replacing appliances can all be done in the winter months. There are technologies and processes available to help reduce or eliminate dust, fumes, and debris.

    Plan Ahead

    If you do have projects that need to wait until the warmer months, now is a good time to start talking to contractors. Set some appointments to get estimates and timelines. Since spring and summer are their busiest times, go ahead and try to get on their calendar as soon as possible for these projects.

    You can usually find better inventory in the winter. Appliances, faucets, and fixtures tend to stay on the shelves longer. This gives you more time to do some research so you can find exactly what you’re looking for.

    Consider Additional Projects

    Winter weather can be unpredictable. Sometimes it can warm up faster than expected, or stay cold longer. If there are periods of nice weather, consider talking to your contractor about any extra projects you’ve been thinking about. Adding a sunroom, building a deck, or adding a porch probably won’t be possible during a snowstorm, but if there is a long period of nice weather, you might be able to get these projects finished.

              Spring has Sprung!

              • By
              • Posted

              The time has finally come to bid winter farewell and welcome spring with open arms. A switch in seasons is the perfect opportunity to step back and get a pulse check on the state of the housing market. Good news – we’ve done our research and want to share some key findings with you:

              It’s not just the weather that’s heating up! With scarcer home listings and high buyer demands, there’s expected to be hot competition in the market this spring. Why? According to a recent REALTOR Magazine article there are three main contributing factors that have Americans flocking to housing: an improving job market, growing consumer confidence and the threat of rising mortgage rates.

              Since November 2016, the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage has risen by more than half a percentage point. The Federal Reserve’s recent vote to increase its benchmark interest rate by a quarter point has many thinking there are more increases ahead. For buyers, this is instilling a sense of urgency, and for the industry, high housing demand. As quoted recently via CNBC, Redfin crunched the numbers: according to Redfin’s recent Housing Demand Index (based on Redfin customers requesting home tours and writing offers,) homebuyer demand was up 23 percent compared to January 2016, led by a 26 percent annual increase in homebuyers requesting tours and an 18 percent increase in buyers making offers.

              As an agent, how can you prepare? Here are some tips:

              • Do some spring cleaning – Busy season can be a lot less daunting when you’re prepared. Organize your work space, update any outdated materials and get rid of anything unnecessary. Do the work ahead of time for smoother sailing once the winds pick up.
              • Educate your clients – No one knows the market as well as you do. Being the expert, take the time to inform home buyers and sellers on the state of housing and the best next steps for them.
              • Don’t assume – Just because buyer demand is high doesn’t mean every house that hits the market will be an automatic sale. Remind your clients to take the time to think through the process, from listing price to general aesthetic, to ensure the most successful transaction.

              Do you have any tried and true tips for conquering the spring housing market? Share them in the comments below!
