Rents Rising Rapidly By Anthony Fireman

The Southcoast Part III

To Buy or Not to Buy? That is the Question. Although it seems

the real estate market is finally showing some moxie, it's the rental market that has been grabbing headlines. The demand for rentals hasn't been this hot since 2002 thanks to skittish banks with fickle lending requirements forcing would-be buyers to rent. In Greater Boston, rental prices have skyrocketed between 7% and 11% depending upon the location. In fact, according to Harvard University's Joint Center for Housing Studies, Boston's median rent is $1171 and the median mortgage payment is $1269 based on 20% down. So, does this mean that renting a home is more expensive than owning one? In order to make a good decision, you need a comprehensive tool. I found The New York Times has one of the best. You can create possible scenarios by adjusting a host of financial, time and even market variables. Even more important, you'll receive a complete summary that highlights the better path. 18

NEHomeLife.com | August 2012 July 2012

"Vacancies in the home-rental market will push average rental rates up as much as 5% by early 2013"

(Go to http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/ business/buy-rent-calculator.html) One word of caution: Keep in mind that this is a breakeven analysis over a specified time horizon you deem appropriate. With this in mind, be sure to include all cash inflows and outflows including the transaction costs of buying and selling your property, capital improvements, unexpected repairs, and all the utilities. Meanwhile, take into account any rental costs including security deposit outlays, key fees, association move in/move out charges, pet fees, parking costs and, of course, a moving truck too. Since we've touched on the decision's basic mechanics, you maybe not so surprised to learn it's a good time to buy rather than rent on Massachusetts's SouthCoast. Kerry Horan is a Broker/REALTORŽ of her own firm, Kerry Horan Real Estate, Inc. and a 13-year veteran in the business. Her office is in Fairhaven, MA. She believes this is the opportunity for first time home buyers to enter the market on the ground floor. “For $135,000,


you can buy a 3-bedroom, 1-bathroom single family property with a living room and eat-inkitchen in West New Bedford which would rent for $1200,” says Horan. “Yet, a person could pay $950 including a mortgage, insurance, taxes and interest at current interest rates. It's like buying a home interest free.” While lower priced homes are one form of purchase opportunity, waterfront properties are quite another. Between 2009 through 2011, the average sales prices of waterfront homes, and/or homes that have waterfront features have increased from $1.33mm to $1.52mm which is 14%. Through the recession, the only price dip was between 2008 and 2009 were the average sales price fell just 1.4%. The drop was a function of six sales that were 3-bedroom/1-bath single-family waterfront homes priced between $500K-$700K.* We can deduce that since these properties have maintained their value, the owners have maintained their equity too. Brad Sprogis has been practicing real estate for

25 years. He's a Broker and Partner at Sprogis & Neale, Inc. in Boston's South End district. Sprogis is also a REALTOR®. Sprogis has a vacation home in Westport that is a 3 minute walk to the beach. He knows that the SouthCoast markets were trashed by the onslaught of foreclosures. However, he received a nice surprise while refinancing his home back in 2009. “In 2009, I was refinancing and I thought I would get crushed by not having enough [home] equity,” said Sprogis. “The appraiser told me that the homes in walking distance to the beach have held their value.” So, owning a SouthCoast waterfront property seems to be an awesome future investment to build and preserve equity. Furthermore, if you lease it, you can bet the monthly rent will be one handsome sum of money. Needless to say, things are looking up. SOURCE: Multiple Listing Service Property Information Network

5 Things Every Home Buyer Should Know by Peter DeFusco

If you want to buy a home for the first time, or are looking to trade up, then there are some things to always keep in mind. Purchasing a home is possibly the most important financial decision that you will do for your whole life. The financial after-effects of your home payments are still felt years after buying the home. From the time of choosing the home up to negotiating prices up to purchasing and

then up to making monthly payments, the entire process can be stressful. Buying a home is a calculated decision, so before you finally commit on paper, here are five things that you have to consider first: 1. Consider your priorities in buying a home. In other words, what matters most to

34

NEHomeLife.com | August 2012 July 2012

you in choosing a home? Is it how big the home is? Is it the home's proximity to many types of establishments, such as schools, hospitals, malls, or parks? Is it its distance to your workplace? Is it the characteristics of the neighbors? Are there any developments that are being planned in the area where your prospective home is? Weigh all of them then decide if the price of the home is worth all of the benefits. 2. Examine the neighborhood. Never overlook the significance of having a good neighborhood. This will be the main determinant of your home's value years

after you buy it. When you are thinking about purchasing a home, taking a look at the surroundings can pay off big-time. When the people living nearby seem to be rough, then bad neighbors will begin flocking nearby, thus reducing the value of your home when you go sell it. 3. Find a good inspector who will look at your home in great detail. A good inspection is a crucial part of examining a prospective home before buying it. Find many good home


NMLS#616522

“Over 25 Years Of Bringing New England Home” inspection companies by seeking out referrals and contacting buyers who have obtained their services before. Standard inspection can spot portions in the home that need repair. For additional inspection, such as termite, mold, drainage, insulation, or electrical inspection, additional fees may be required. However, inspection is always worth it; you can determine problems before they worsen. 4. Determine if you have to pay extra expenses and factor them into the negotiation. For instance, if the home inspector determines that repairs are needed, then try to shave a few thousand from the price that the seller asks for. Other situations where you can negotiate for a lower asking price are a need to replace the roof and a need to change the appliances to something new. 5. Find out whether you can afford the home that you want to buy. Even if the lender of your mortgage deems you qualified for a loan, you have to ensure that you can pay off the loan regularly. When giving you a loan amount, lenders do not take into account the way you spend your money (they care about your income and your credit score the most). Therefore try to cut down on unnecessary spending habits first before purchasing a home. Also, if you don't have a stable job, wait for your employment situation to stabilize. These important factors will help you make sure that the home you end up choosing is the right one for you and your family.

Windows - Fast Facts By Greg Sampson

It is that time of the year when the kids are going back to school and you now have time to think about home improvements to ready for the cooler season in New England. Replacing your windows is a wonderful improvement to make to your home as they will help save money on heating bills and make your home more pleasing to the eye. This month I sat down with United Better Homes to discuss the important facts to know before you replace your windows and also what to expect on an estimate appointment. NEHL: What are the main features a homeowner should look for in a replacement window? UBH: First make sure that the window is at least a .30 U-Value as it is the MA & RI standard as well as the federal standard for what is energy efficient. NEHL: What does UBH carry for windows? UBH: We really have a window for everyone. We carry 4 different brands in 13 styles with wood, vinyl or composite options. Our most 44

NEHomeLife.com | August 2012

cost effective window is the DP-50 which can with stand wind speeds of 150-17- mph. NEHL: What should a homeowner look for when it comes to getting an estimate and throughout the installation process? UBH: Watch out for companies that sub out their work. For example we send our own employees so we know the level of customer service that will be provided for an estimate and installation. Making sure that the installer is certified is extremely important. The manufactures warranty is voided if the installer is not. We like to keep our appointments short and sweet providing our best price the very first time as we understand that time is very valuable these days. There is your crash course on replacement windows. If you have any questions on UBH products or would like to schedule a free estimate please contact them at 401- 274-1079 or on the web at UnitedBetterHomes.com.

5 Tips to Get Your Home Ready to Sell by Kristin M. Carcieri-MacRae

The number one piece of advice I can give for home sellers: Declutter.

When you are selling a home, the last thing a buyer wants to see is a home that is disorganized. How can you prepare your home for your open house? Here are 5 tips: 1. Organize every closet in your home. Everybody wants great closet space and if your closets are cluttered, buyers won’t get a clear picture of how the space can be utilized. Now is a great time to take everything out of your closets and go through them. This will also help you with your packing process. 2. Organize your kitchen. We all want a big kitchen to entertain and prepare meals. If

your kitchen, food closet and cabinets are cluttered the buyer won’t feel comfortable in your kitchen. 3. Get rid of anything that is a dust collector. Pack away your collectibles, chatzkies, and anything else that is cluttering up your home. Buyers want to imagine themselves living there and it will be hard to vision if they don’t have a clear picture of the space. 4. Bedrooms are for sleeping and relaxing. Make this room the most peaceful, serene room in your home. No clutter! 5. Less is more. Be a minimalist.

Selling or buying a home is the best time to get organized, because you have to physically go through everything you own. Make a fresh start in your new home and get organized. If this process is too overwhelming or stressful, call Organizing In RI, LLC to help you with the process.

peal and is one of the hardest materials in nature. Cambria countertops consist of 93% natural quartz stone and require no maintenance. Cambria is only available through exclusive dealers (and cannot be found in Home Centers.) Maintenance-free - Cambria means that it never needs polishing or sealing. Granite needs to be sealed once or twice a year as chemical sealers wear off. Plus, unlike granite, Cambria surfaces are resistant to stains. Bacteria Resistant - Certified as safe for use as a food preparation surface, Cambria is as hygienic as stainless steel. It's nonporous surface makes it impossible for bacteria to penetrate and grow.

Strength - Quartz is one of the hardest minerals found in nature. Cambria is 93% natural quartz, and is stronger than granite. Our 2012 goal is first and foremost to focus on you – our customer! We want to “Be The Change.” We want to revamp and reinstitute the “American Dream.” Our focus is to provide our customers with the “Best” and most reliable product(s) available in the marketplace! We are proud that Cambria counters are 100% made in the United States (at Cambria's LeSueur, Minnesota plant). So, if you're concerned about such things as "Made in the U.S.A.," then Cambria is just the ticket.

Kitchen & Baths by Humphrey’s

As two of the most popular home remodels, kitchen and bathroom improvements can represent a substantial return on investment (ROI) ratio; helping to bring top market value for your home. Bathroom renovations especially prove high performers. On average 120% return on investment for bath renovations and 100% for kitchen improvements according to recent statistics. Both types of renovations increase a home’s chances of a quick sale and represent a major selling feature to potential buyers As the heart and soul of the home, the kitchen is one of the most user rooms of the house; of keen interest to potential buyers. In fact, real es56

NEHomeLife.com | August 2012

tate agents say a clean, well-designed kitchen with modern appliances and quality elements can sell a house quicker than nearly any other aspect of the home. Modern, well-designed bathrooms are another big selling point; where quantity and quality both count. Homes that have two or three bathrooms with quality fixtures sell faster than homes with only one bathroom. Needless to say, a luxurious master bathroom adjoining the master bedroom is even more impressive. While bathrooms and kitchens can represent some of the most costly types of home renovations, they are also more likely to pay for themselves.


Kitchen Remodeling Tips

Consider basic room functions. Make sure remodeling or renovation project will accommodate one or more of the room’s functions. For instance, the kitchen’s primary functions are food preparation, storage, and clean up. Make sure the classic work triangle is incorporated into the kitchen floor plan – with the kitchen sink, refrigerator, and stove arranged in a triangular pattern. This layout saves unnecessary steps, while ensuring ease of movement and convenience. Install a granite counter top – or one made from other natural stone. Stone counter tops installed using quality workmanship improves kitchen appearance and usability. They can also be a huge selling point.

Entrust our experts at Humphrey’s to design, create and install a custom kitchen or bath that best suits your personal needs. Our team of designers using our state-of-the-art design software will allow you to envision your home project before it begins. We use a host of leading manufactures that represent

The ClamDoor is THE New Alternative in Bulkheads by NEHL Staff

For more than 10 years, the ClamDoor has offered homeowners a superior alternative to traditional wooden or steel bulkhead doors that can need replacing every several years. Inspired by watertight elements in nature and designed and developed with sailing technology, the ClamDoor is handcrafted in Rhode Island, USA with the care and expertise of master boat builders and in accordance with the tight specifications of high-performance racing boats and ocean cruisers.

The result is an elegant, lightweight and weathertight product, constructed of 100% fiberglass that is extremely durable and maintenance-free. The ClamDoor retains its sleek, upscale appearance throughout the life of the product. The fiberglass will never rust, and the neutral grey, smooth gel coat finish never needs painting (but can easily be painted any color, if desired). The ClamDoor is a single, fullyassembled unit that fits all standard openings, making it quick and easy to install. Its single, smooth-action door 58

NEHomeLife.com | August 2012

is quiet, safe, and secure ... and feather-light to open and close. The ClamDoor is energy-efficient and especially well-suited for coastal homes with weather concerns ... as well as discerning homeowners anywhere who seek best-in-class materials and craftsmanship. The ClamDoor is THE single bulkhead solution for the life of any home and comes with a 5-year warranty and our guarantee of satisfaction.

“Maintaining the Shade” by Betsy Griffin

Al Levesque has been a licensed arborist since 1991. When he was just out of high school he had worked for 2 other tree companies, and that’s when he knew what he wanted to do. His brother Scott started Levesque’s Tree Service in 1991, two weeks before Hurricane Bob, and Al joined him shortly after. Al does all the estimates, and because they have 3 crews running every day with 5 licensed arborists, any work that is needed will be done within a week. I sat down with Al and asked him a few questions that every homeowner should know the answers to. Q. Why is it critical that you have your trees checked each year by an arborist? A. All trees have the potential to have defects, so it’s really important to evaluate the defect and the likelihood of failure. That will give us the opportunity to take action if necessary. All mature trees have some degree of decay. The extent and location of the decay will determine the risk factor. You don’t want to take the chance of having people or your property hit if a tree fails!

86

NEHomeLife.com | August 2012

Q. How important is pruning trees for their overall health? A. Pruning a tree is very important and the most common tree maintenance procedure. If done incorrectly it can cause damage that will last for the life of the tree, or worse, shorten the trees lifespan. Routine thinning does not necessarily improve the health of a tree. In fact heavy pruning can be a significant health stress for the tree. Having a professional arborist do the trimming for you is important because he can determine the type of pruning necessary to improve the health, appearance, and safety of your trees. Proper pruning, with the understanding of the


tree biology, can maintain good tree health and structure while enhancing the aesthetic and economic values of your landscape. Q. So many trees do great damage in a hurricane or high windstorm. How can this be prevented? A. High winds and heavy rain can wreak havoc on weak and stressed trees, causing branches to snap, or trees to uproot. As evidenced by the recent storm we had in July, my days ahead were extremely busy cleaning up the debris. Just a little maintenance beforehand could have prevented a lot of extra work. Regular pruning done by a professional arborist over the course of the trees life can create a sturdy, well spaced framework of healthy branches with an open canopy that allows wind to flow freely through. Q. What is the rule of thumb for thinning out trees on your property?

Thinning out is the cutting down and removal of a portion of trees. This is done to provide more growing space for the remaining trees. This will lead to an increase in size of individual trees, providing you with a much healthier, stronger, mature tree. Q. What does an average maintenance visit cost for a homeowner that would include pruning? Of course the cost of the job depends on how many trees there are, how large they are and if any work has been previously done on them. It also depends on the location of the trees on the property. Access is key. It will all depend on if we need to use the bucket truck, or if the tree has to be climbed, or if the crane is necessary, all those factors have to be taken into consideration when determining the cost. We can provide you with an estimate at no cost to you. We personally answer all phone calls and we can give you that estimate that same day!
