Home Improvement: What Maintenance Can You Do To Increase Your Bottom Line There are plenty of easy, inexpensive improvements you can make to your home’s appearance that offer a high return when it comes to the selling price of your home. Cosmetic changes do not have to be expensive. In fact, costly home improvements do not necessarily offer a good return on your investment when you sell. Buyers typically make the purchase decision based fundamentally on how well the home has been maintained. Here are a few maintenance suggestions that provide an immediate payback when selling your home: General cleaning with attention to cob webs, dust, bathrooms, kitchen, windows, vents Replace heating and air conditioning filters Shampoo carpets Repair dripping faucets and squeaky doors Keep lawns cut, Trim hedges and shrubs, Weed and edge gardens Clear driveway and clean up oil spills Touch up paint Tighten doorknobs and latches Repair cracked plaster Replace all burned out light bulbs Check working order of doorbell and exterior light Home Staging: Making Your Buyer Feel at Home The secret to home staging is creating an atmosphere that makes a buyer feel at home. The primary elements to consider when creating ambiance for a buyer include a welcoming presence, neutral tones and increased space. How to Create a Welcoming Presence 1. Remove any items that make a statement that might be offensive to others. Offensive statements can be defined as any item that alienates a group of people. Often these statements are found on items such as posters, displayed photographs, refrigerator magnets and displayed signs. 2. Make your home feel cozy. Cinnamon or vanilla scented potpourri and candles create a homey feeling. Consider baking a batch of frozen cinnamon rolls for a welcoming aroma. 3. Turn on lights, open the drapes and turn on the fireplace, heater or air conditioner before the showing. Place a folded guest towel or nice bottle of soap on a clean, cleared-off bathroom vanity How to Choose Neutral Tones and Decorations

1. Paint is one of the most inexpensive and effective ways to quickly prepare a home for sale. Off-white, tan and taupe are all suggested colors when painting the walls and selecting carpet. 2. Hints of sunshine yellow, sage green, brown and deep red are great choices for accent colors. These colors create a friendly atmosphere and help a room “Pop” and become memorable. However, use these colors in moderation, not as the primary color of a room. A vase of yellow flowers, a deep red piece of furniture and green trim along the entrance of a room are some examples of how to make a your home memorable. 3. Painting the trim of your home white make the rooms feel more spacious. 4. When preparing your home for the market, consider removing blue, dark green and turquoise colors, particularly from the bathrooms and basement. These colors tend to make a home feel damp and cold. 5. Keep personal photographs and artwork to a minimum. A few framed family pictures or a couple pieces of art add charm to home. However, keep in mind that you want others to feel at home during the showing. The buyer must able to picture his or her lifestyle in your home. Arrange furniture in a way that distinguishes rooms. For example, remove a home office from the family room. Put a table and chairs in a large kitchen to establish a dining room. Create a living room by grouping furniture so that people face each other. How to Create Space Keep minimal furniture in the home to open up rooms and hallways. Consider storing out-of-season clothing to create more space in closets. Clean out cabinets, drawers and medicine cabinets. Minimize the amount of clutter. Create spacious counters by putting most appliances in a cabinet. Consider leaving only 2-3 nice appliances on the counter.

What Does a Home Warranty Cover? Standard coverage differs quite a bit by provider, so be sure to study each policy carefully before selecting one. • Many standard home warranties cover plumbing, appliances, and the heating and cooling units. • Some policies cover the roof. • Coverage for a private well, septic system, and other items can often be purchased by paying an additional fee. How Long Is The Home Covered? The typical home warranty policy is effective for one year with an option to renew coverage upon expiration. How Much Does A Home Warranty Cost? Cost varies, but a standard policy is typically $350 to $450. How Does A Home Warranty Benefit Sellers? A warranty makes your home more attractive to potential buyers, especially if appliances and other items are aged. The price of a home warranty is minimal, and since the policy can be paid for at closing you're not out any cash until the home sells.

What is Agency Disclosure and Why Do I Have to Sign? Whether you are listing, buying or leasing property, a real estate agent will provide you with industry and community expertise. In some cases, the real estate agent will represent you as his or her client; in other scenarios the agent may represent you as an intermediary or as his/her customer.

Real Estate Brokerage Relationships Wyoming Brokers and their Salespersons are required by law to disclose the types of relationships that are available to you. Notice to Buyers/Sellers Wyo. Statute 33-28-302(f) A broker, associate broker or salesman, licensed pursuant to Article 1 of this chapter, may complete standard forms and shall explain to the parties the effects thereof, if the broker, associate broker or salesman is performing the activities enumerated or referred to in §33-28-102(a)(iii) in the transaction in which the forms are to be used. Home Source Realty, Inc. agents are trained and expected to explain your contracts to you in compliance with the above statute. The Wyoming Supreme Court, in Snyder vs. Lovercheck, set the standard at: “a broker's statutory duty to advise his client of the terms of the proposed contract is fulfilled when an explanation commensurate with the client's sophistication has been made.� Typically, the agent should spend at least 30 minutes with you on an agency or intermediary employment agreement and at least an hour with you on a purchase contract, depending on your level of experience in real estate transactions. Thank you for taking the necessary time to review the contracts. If you do not feel the above standard has been achieved, do not sign any contracts until you have an attorney advice you. Sincerely,
