The holiday season along with the winter chill is typically not the most popular time to list your home for sale. For those that decide whether by choice or urgency to be on the market there are some upsides to this.
So…….Ho Ho Ho….and if you get nifty wrap your home in a bow
Happy home selling 🙂 ⛄️🎄
This long drive sets the tone for a relaxing atmosphere and very impressive “curb appeal”
That perfect light fixture set off just the look you were aiming for when you when redecorated your living room. As you are getting your home ready for the market you become reluctant to pack it up even though you have no plans of leaving it.
Now you are torn between the “staging effect” it can have on a buyer and the possibility of the light fixture becoming a negotiable item even though you state in your owners disclosure that it is not remaining and will be replaced with another fixture of the buyers choice within a stated allowance.
My suggestion is to remove it, because it may become the one item that tipped a buyer in your favor, and chances are they would have still offered to buy your home without it because the most important things like size, price and location are what they are really shopping for. Once a buyer sees it and likes it they will want it.
A stand alone lamp in the same room would be considered personal property but since the overhead light is attached by permanent wires it is considered a fixture and the buyer may assume it is included.
Both buyers and sellers alike overlook items and get surprised at a final walk though when they discover something must stay or go. Some of the most common items I have re-negotiated at a final hour of closing the sale are:
The easy solution to avoid these misunderstandings is a careful review of the checklist on a owners disclosure statement regarding the items remaining with a home. Also, a review of any exclusions on the Real Estate agents listing sheet, and always address any item of question in the purchase and sale agreement. If there is an item of personal property that works well with a home a buyer can always ask for it or purchase it from the owner and note it on a personal property agreement.
Happy home buying and selling…:)

Post-hurricane jobs numbers not as strong as expected The October jobs report is in, and the numbers are a mixed bag. The U.S. economy added 261,000 nonfarm payroll jobs in October, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. A hiring rebound at restaurants and bars impacted by recent hurricanes helped boost numbers. However, October’s jobs…
Most people enjoy a frightening fireside story about a haunted house. Stretch your imagination a bit let’s talk about the friendly ghost in a home that occupants typically learn to live with and accept their presence.
Yes, they can be disruptive walking around the house at night turning on lights or opening doors and cabinets but other than that most folks get used to having them around.
Some people say that they follow a family if they move, others say they act up when a new family moves in just to claim their spot.
Whatever your ghost story, take it as a compliment because if you were not a “good spirit” they would not want to be there with you.
Happy Halloween, stay kind you never know who might pop in for a visit.

The first thing that came to my mind when I read a post by a local real estate agent on social media saying that we were in a “hot market”, was to take my sign down. I still had packing , downsizing and could not get out that quick. Real estate markets vary by location and are driven mostly by economic factors in an area that influence supply and demand.
Here are my tips to make it easy for you to know how your area is performing.
Working with a real estate professional and having a market analysis prepared for the area you are planning to buy or sell will easily give you this information.
Happy home buying and selling 🙂 It’s a piece of cake
