On the House: Green is the new “Gold Standard”

NEWS

Nowadays, everywhere you go, you hear about “going green. It’s great for the environment, and no one seems to mind either. The problem is that some people don’t know where to start. Today, more and more products are going green, and more buildings are built green to save overall

the long haul? Did you know the bathroom is responsible for about 60 percent of a home’s water consumption? Going green in your landscape design can provide continual outer beauty to your home

as well as minimizing the maintenance needs to retain it. Did you know that re-using shower water, often referred to as “grey water” for watering gardens is another way to recycle what we would normally never think is recyclable? It may take installing a bit of plumbing and a holding tank; but if you have the room for this, it beats draining your tank to keep those plants alive.

down on air conditioning needs. (2) Switch to Green Power. The use of newable energy in a home, such as solar, wind, water or geo thermal, greatly helps reduce pollution. (3) Dial it back. Lowering settings on water heaters, refrigerators, dishwashers, and laundry machines. (5) Turn old into new. If brand new appliances are required, homeowners should make sure they are energy efficient (6) Unplug appliances, TV’s, lamps, etc., when they are not in use. You are still using energy when they are plugged up. (7) Lastly, if you

are from the moment they decide it’s time to sell their home, the less stamina they may actually require to reach a successful outcome. Here are some tips to help achieve this. Sellers, put your home in the best possible light. Remember buyers are not paying you for your memories; they are paying for their own possibilities. To that end, clean your place up; get rid of the clutter, too many family photos, extra or oversized furniture etc. Make sure your place feels “welcoming” to potential buyers. Spending a few hundred (or thousand if necessary) dollars on fresh paint of neutral colors; simple clean / fix ups can net sellers more money in their pockets because buyers are willing to make stronger offers faster on homes that are well kept and

In both the case of pricing and showing, you don’t sell if it’s unrealistically priced and looks like a place you don’t care about. Help yourself be as successful as possible and work closely with your Agent who brings marketing expertise, strategies to best expose your property, education about the process, negotiation and facilitation skills, patience and hopefully a sense of humor. Work together regarding prepping your home for the market and getting that price spot on from the start. A proactive, market accurate strategy with your real estate professional will require less “stamina” and leave you with more energy to celebrate your closing!
