Hot Real Estate Listings


contemporary cabinetry and furniture in Phoenix have gained momentum,” says Rosenthal. “The new condos and lofts that are being built [in the area] really cater to a more contemporary look. The architecture of the buildings is much more modern looking. And the trend has taken hold in more traditional communities as well.” But is it possible to put a redesigned contemporary kitchen in a Tuscan style home? Yes, says Rosenthal, by mixing a combination of materials so the styles blend. The result is a fresh, eclectic look.

Wondering what’s new for contemporary kitchen design in 2010 and beyond? Does stainless steel still reign supreme for appliances (the answer is yes!), what woods are all the rage (think dark and exotic), and what are the hottest trends in our not-so-hot economy (two words: cabinet refacing)? Who better to speak with than Allan Rosenthal of European Design in Scottsdale. Rosenthal is well-known in our area for amazing contemporary interiors … see the cover photo for proof. A MOVEMENT TOWARDS CONTEMPORARY A change in overall style is definitely afoot, says Rosenthal, who sees a shift away from the once-popular Tuscan style toward a more contemporary look. “The last couple of years,

TODAY’S HOT TRENDS More specifically, Rosenthal sees a trend toward darker materials and exotic woods for kitchen cabinetry. Some examples include block-mottled Makore, flat-cut Wenge, Bubinga, Swiss Pearwood, figured Anigre, block-mottled Anigre, and Claro Walnut. More linear woods include rift-sawn white Oak, which is available in a man-made “green” material; rift-sawn Wenge; Macasar Ebony, also available in a man-made “green” material; quartered Ash; ribbon Sapele; and Kosipo. That said, environmentally safe green designs are also getting people’s attention. As for appliances, stainless steel is still popular, with beautiful stainless faucets and fixtures getting fancier than ever. Integrated appliances—when the refrigerator and dishwasher disappear into the cabinetry and the fronts are all flush—are also in demand. “We’ve done kitchens where it’s hard to tell a refrigerator is a refrigerator,” adds Rosenthal. For countertops, granite is still a mainstay, but the more eco-friendly and cost-effective concrete is gaining in popularity, especially in today’s economy. “People are looking for alternatives and looking for things that are environmentally friendly,” says Rosenthal. “Concrete is definitely an option for that. You’d be amazed at what can be done with concrete. You can do an integrated sink and an integrated dish-drying area and it’s a seamless look. Even though it’s an older material, concrete has a futuristic look. The designers mix glass and color into the concrete. What they do with it is mind boggling.” Rosenthal will also incorporate lighting into his cabinetry, with under-cabinet lighting being very popular. “We’ve also done a lot of light bridges that run across the upper cabinetry and around the whole room,” he says. “That really adds a lot of character and shows off the wood. It gives a three-dimensional look to the exotic woods.” AMAZING TRANSFORMATIONS One final trend Rosenthal is seeing? A lot of people are remodeling in preparation of listing their property to sell. “We’re getting a lot of calls for kitchens,” he says. “We can take an existing kitchen and reface it. We’ve transformed kitchens that just looked unbelievably bad and used the existing boxes and put new fronts and sides on them and the transformation is amazing.”

Keep Emotions Suppressed & Negotiations on Track! Selling your home can be a nerve-wracking experience. After all, your home is more than stucco and stones to you. It’s the place you’ve spent holidays and perhaps raised children. It’s the place you’ve decorated and loved for many years. Now it’s time to sell your nest and the potential buyers are trying to nickel and dime their way to a rock-bottom price. In your eyes, the listing price is fair if not undervalued. It’s hard not to get emotional. On the flip side, if you’re the home buyer and you’ve finally found the house of your dreams, it’s hard not to let your emotions ruin the negotiations as well. After all, you don’t want to let this one get away. You also don’t want to overpay. On either side of the negotiating table, it’s important not to tie your emotions to this business transaction. Both home sellers and home buyers need to be careful not to let their feelings interfere with the negotiating process. Emotions can often cause small, easily settled disputes to escalate into deal-breakers. Feelings of anger, fear, agitation, distrust, disappointment or disrespect may arise in a real estate transaction from either party. When people feel that their interests are threatened, or that their wishes are not being heard, it’s human nature to want to lash out in response. However, it’s almost always best to keep emotions at bay. One of the first steps to managing your emotions is to acknowledge them. Discuss these feelings with your Realtor.

Trying to suppress your strong emotions completely may only lead to resentment. By letting your Realtor understand your feelings, he or she is better prepared to negotiate with the other party in a calm manner while working on your behalf. If a party sees that the opposing side is overcome with emotions, it’s sometimes best to acknowledge this and let the other side express their feelings. A good negotiator is able to recognize anger issues before they erupt and to make small concessions in order to build trust and defuse the anger. Let the other party know that you empathize with their concerns whether you agree with them or not. The point is to provide reassurance and keep the negotiations on track. While negative emotions can impact negotiations, so can positive emotions. Feelings of pride, joy, satisfaction and appreciation increase the likelihood that both parties will reach their goal of a win-win outcome. Let the positive emotions you feel take center stage in your negotiating. It breeds respect and the desire to work things out with the other party. While deep in the negotiation process, it’s often easy to lose sight of your goal – to buy or sell the property at a fair price. Don’t get emotionally caught up in little things. As the saying goes, “pick your battles.” Don’t allow negative feelings to overcome logic. Is it really better that you made your point by refusing to fix a frivolous line-item on the inspection report if it means
