Top 5 ways to make money on your home “Despite being in the longest real estate bull market in recent history, I still meet with homeowners who can’t sell their homes”, says John Hogan, President of Remodeling Expo Center. “These homeowners can’t understand how their neighbors are making so much money and their realtor is encouraging them to drop the price of their home for the second time.” It’s at this point that the homeowner usually comes to my design center and askes for help. “Remodeling to-sell the home is not my favorite type of project, but we do it all the time. I just wish that homeowners did it sooner, so that they could enjoy their remodeled home before they sold it”, say Peter Schnieper, co-owner of Remodeling Expo Center. By doing these 5 things you will be sure to make money as you sell your house. Schools. When selecting your home focus on the quality of the schools, especially the high school. Atlanta Public School’s issues are driving a migration to the North Atlanta suburbs and this demand is escalating home prices. Your Greatest Investment. Think of your home as an investment, not an expense. It needs to be cared for, optimized, adjusted, and you will need professional guidance, just like your stock portfolio. Many people accumulate more wealth in their homes than in their savings, so why don’t we pay more attention to the health of our homes? This is a critical difference between people who make money and people who don’t. Your home can be your best performing investment, if you treat it as such.

Adaptation. “My cabinets have good bones”. If I hear that one more time, I think I’m going to scream! says Brittany Lingerfelt, Remodeling Expo Center’s Design Studio Manager. She continues, “that’s like justifying wearing a 15 year old style skirt because it doesn’t have holes in it.” Styles change, the American family has changed, the kitchen is now designed based upon flow, connectivity and the digital age and the sturdy “Bones” of your old oak cabinets are irrelevent. Bathrooms now focus on beauty, brightness, health and cleanability, not practicality and segmentation. The home has adapted. Don’t expect a premium price for your home if it looks like a “Brady Bunch” home. Over Personalization. I’ve seen built-in parrot cages in bathrooms, built-in deep fryers in kitchens, etc. Sure it’s your home, but if you personalize it with non-removable items, or make changes that don’t make sense to most of the population, you’re going to devalue your home. Bright, Open and Spacious. This is a pretty basic formula that always works. Move a few walls, brighten up the paint colors, counters, and invest in lighting. Follow this formula and you will improve the value of your home. For more information of how to improve the value of your home, contact The Remodeling Expo Center at 404 910-3969 or stop in at 48 King Street, Roswell, GA 30075. www.RemodelingExpo.com.

Old and new Downtown Alpharetta Home Tour benefitting the Sunshine Kids Every year Berkshire Hathaway comes together to support the Sunshine Kids organization. The Sunshine Kids is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to kids with cancer. By providing emotional support and positive group activities to those receiving cancer treatment in hospitals across North America, The sunshine Kids organization is able to bring some light into the lives of young cancer patients and their families. Berkshire Hathaway has always been thrilled to support this organization. This year Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties North Fulton/Alpharetta branch hosted a Sunshine Kids home tour to raise money for this incredible organization. The event consisted of allowing people to tour three incredible homes in downtown Alpharetta with all the proceeds benefiting the Sunshine Kids Organization. From newly constructed townhomes to historic architecture, these homes provided guests to take in both classic and modern design.

The first ever Old and New Sunshine Kids Home Tour was highly successful and was able to raise awareness as well as funds for The Sunshine Kids. Thank you to everyone who came out and supported Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Georgia Properties Luxury Collection philanthropic efforts. The Georgia Properties North Fulton/Alpharetta branch had a large part in the overall success of this event. “I am so proud of my team for making our first Alpharetta Old and New Sunshine Kids Home Tour a huge success. Our team is dedicated to this cause and the response from the community was amazing. As this was our first tour, we have committed to sponsor it again next year as not only did it support the foundation but the community as well,” said Mary Wargula, Sr.Vp/Managing Broker, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties Alpharetta/North Fulton Branch.

Brought to you by – BILL RAWLINGS Senior Vice President & Managing Broker, North Atlanta Office Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty When selling your home, every inch of Rawlings space should be beautiful and pristine, and a great way to increase your competitive edge is through staging. According to the National Association of REALTORS®, sellers who invest in staging their home see approximately 83 percent faster sales at an 8 percent higher price. Staging, especially with the latest design trends, sees a 586 percent return on investment on average. If you are looking for a way to make your home stand out, staging makes logical and economical sense. What are the latest trends for fall 2019? According to Design 2 Sell®, a local, award-winning staging and interior services company, these are a few tips so you can stay on-trend: Decoration Feeling nostalgic? People are loving globes! Place them in your office, living room or bedroom to revoke a uniqueness to your space. Another decorative trend is adorning faces in various artistic ways. You can place a beautiful painting or sculpture of faces in almost any room in the house. If you like simplicity, you may enjoy decorating with glass. Adding iridescence to your home has become a major trend, and it’s a classic way to open and modernize your design. Texture Add a three-dimensional look to the rooms in your home. Keep the trend understated with textured pillows or go bolder by making a textured couch or rug the statement piece of a space. Also, performance fabrics are making their way indoors. Not only do these fabrics make great decor, they also allow for easy clean-up and durability. Colors If you love earthy tones, this is the trend for you! Gray is on the way out, making room for the neutrals moving in. Fill each room with warm, clean neutral tones, such as classic white, navy, emerald and beige.

It’s a family affair! If you are planning on downsizing are all relevant family members aware of the upcoming sale of your home and the reasons for it? It is a good idea to have a family discussion about the decision to sell prior to GRIFFIN signing commitments. Adult children often have strong emotional stakes in the sale. If the move involves significant downsizing, this may also be a time to bring up property and possessions issues. Unfortunately, there is not a strong market for used furniture. Especially traditional and antique pieces. Even charities and consignment shops are very selective in what they will take. Your adult children may already have a house full of furniture and have no need for your items. We spend our lives collecting mementos, furniture

and items to enjoy over the years, and then we spend our later years shedding these same things! When you get ready to downsize, the question becomes- what is coming with me and what is going away. We find ourselves making decisions about each possession and it’s “fate”. Most seniors have found it is best to downsize their possessions over several years to prevent the major stress of moving and dealing with a multitude of items. For more ideas to make downsizing more smooth, contact Dan Griffin, Broker/Realtor Keller Williams First Atlanta.

There are many matters to consider when listing your home. One question homeowners have, is when to put their house on the market. There is a common misconception that placing your home on the market during winter time is not advisable. While well intended, this is not true. Conventional wisdom says there are less individuals looking for homes in winter. While accurate, there is a second side to this equation. Like all transactions, this comes down to supply and demand. There is a lower supply of available homes during winter, compensating for the lower demand. Because of this, you will have less competition when trying to attract available buyers. In addition, there will always be a constant amount of home buyers looking for houses, due to moving for work. Many companies try to hire for open roles before the end of the year. Most

of these will be filled by people relocating for the job. With lower inventory, it is easier for your home to rise above the rest. You will only have to compete with those homes that have been on the market for a long time and are stale. Finally, many people want to be in their new home for the holidays, thus increasing the sense of urgency for finding a home. There is also a tax benefit of buying before year end, helping drive demand for newly listed homes in winter. Remember, no matter when you list, you will always have my help. The Dream is Free, the Hustle is Sold Separately- Call me to Sell Your Home!
