C real estate Get your garage in gear before the snow flies

Northfield News Saturday-Sunday October 25-26, 2008

The outdoors isn’t where you want your car come winter. It’s time to get organized By BARBARA BALLINGER CTW Features Garages used to be for housing cars and odds and ends you didn’t have room for in your house. Then, something happened. Homeowners purchased more stuff - bicycles, sports gear, Christmas ornaments, tools - and forgot to discard what they no longer used. Chaos reigned, and before long cars had to be parked on a driveway or street since there wasn’t room in the garage. Not good with winter on the horizon. “The average American two-car garage became a no-car garage because it was so crammed with clutter,� says Barry Izsak, a professional organizer and author of Organize Your Garage in No Time (Que, 2005). In addition, garages began to look terrible, he says. “This was the one room

in the house where doors opened daily for the world to see, yet it was allowed to be the most unsightly and neglected,� he says. Fortunately, help arrived. After learning to spruce up closets with closet specialists, homeowners are taking to the garage with experts who know how to transform a 400-square-foot, two-car or 600-square-foot, three-car garage from an overstuffed disaster zone into good looking car-cum-storage room with cabinets, wall systems, lighting and insulated doors. In a small but growing number of homes, the garage has assumed additional functions - home office, hobby center, wine cellar or kids’ hangout. Such changes can get pricey. “The most drop-dead 4,500-square-foot garage we did housed nine cars, power boat and motorcycles and cost $53,000,� says Brad Randolph, vice president business development of PremierGarage in Phoenix,, one of the country’s largest garage remodeling franchisers.

Even with leaves falling, it’s not too late to do landscaping 8 Yard Notes Leif Knecht

Guest Columnist As October slides into November we often get asked if it is too late to do landscaping and planting. Late fall is actually a good time to do projects that you weren’t able to get to in the hustle and bustle of a busy spring and summer.

When planning for late fall landscaping, be sure to plan for a reasonable sized project. From mid-October through the month of November, there are many days with good working conditions, but it is important to plan so you know you will get done before winter. An alternative is to enlist some outside help to get done more quickly. First make a list of all the supplies and plants your landscaping will require, and go out now to purchase everything, so you know you will be all set.  There are some really great deals

available near the end of the season, but quantities may be limited. Provide your usual supplier with a list of what is needed. Suppliers will be better able to meet your needs when there is a list in their hands. If you need help creating a plan for your landscaping, consider hiring a landscape designer to customize a plan that will be just right for you and your particular property.  The designer can then provide a complete list of everything that is needed, and help you locate these supplies, or if you prefer, direct you to a landscaping

contractor to carry the project to completion. Temperatures are usually quite pleasant for working this time of year which usually translates into getting things done more quickly and efficiently. If your project requires large equipment on the site, soils are often quite firm in the fall, which helps keep the area in better shape. It is also not too late to plant most landscape plants. Each year during October and November customers flock to the nursery seeking good plants at bargain prices, and the vast

majority of these do well out in the landscape planted this time of year. Perhaps you don’t want to do a project, but would just like to get a few more trees planted. Again, this is a great time for tree planting and some nice savings. Don’t delay however, since some nurseries starting putting plants into winter storage about November 5th to the 10th! Plant Spotlight: Emerald Carousel Barberry. Gracefully arching canes growing to 4’ to 5’ maintain a clean and green look all season, and then put on a spectac-

ular display of yellow/orange and red fall color that is hard to miss and hard to beat.   This plant performs best in ∏ day to full day sun and nicely drained soil.  Used for a specimen plant, massed plantings and hedges. Notably useful where you want a hedge that becomes impenetrable, due to the very sharp and strong thorns.  If you want to keep people from cutting across an area, Emerald Carousel Barberry will keep them at bay.

Garage: Get the garage in gear before snow flies

From Page 1C Concept to Creation, a home remodeling and consultation firm based in Gilbert, Ariz., has seen garages get fancier with hydraulic vehicle lifts to stack cars, HVAC and dehumidifying systems and subterranean work pits. But the majority of garage fix-ups cost far less - a few hundred to few thousand dollars, Randolph says. With the plethora of good organization systems for the DIY market, handy homeowners can do the work themselves. Gladiator GarageWorks, owned by

Whirlpool, offers a useful design tool on its Web site, GladiatorGW.com. Whether you go the DIY or professional route, many changes will help you enjoy your garage more and improve selling potential, though all costs may not be recouped. It all depends on what you add, your home’s price, and comparable area houses. “Having a garage versus no garage, whether it’s attached or not and how many cars it can accommodate are major selling points for a home these days,” says Haley Hwang, sales associate with Coldwell Banker

Residential Brokerage in Glenview, Ill. “Whether the garage is finished with all the bells and whistles won’t necessarily help you get more (dollars), but it may help you sell it faster versus a comparable home in the same price range,” Hwang says. Barb St. Amant, with Harry Norman Realtors in suburban Atlanta, agrees, and says it’s key to know your market. “Three-car garages are now the rage with higher-priced homes here, but overall the garages I’ve seen, even at the high end, are just basic and utilitarian,” she says.

Single family homes from the $190s offer a variety of styles and floor plans, with exceptional living spaces and architectural details. Luxury single and multi level townhomes from the $120s blend artistry and function to create impressive spaces.

Consider these 5 key steps: 1. Don’t use it? Pitch it Professional organizer Linda Collier of Living Organized in St. Louis, suggests removing everything from your garage and deciding what you keep, give to friends and family, donate to a charity or have hauled away. Izsak recommends being tough. “Don’t be tempted to keep nine hammers and 15 screwdrivers. Ask yourself when was the last time you used each item,” he says. 2. Budget The sky’s the limit in purchases since anything that goes inside a house can go into a garage. Set a budget, which helps determine your choice of materials, number of cabinets, shelves and bells and whistles, Izsak says.

cold and heat. Painted floors look smarter, improve durability and avoid hot-tire pickup. Consider a tough paint, such as an epoxy. Gladiator GarageWorks produces a line of tiles, including drain tiles, which snap together. Painted walls reduce mold from developing. Fluorescent lights provide good illumination; ceiling fans with lights also do and circulate air. Sound systems, a refrigerator and TV make the space more pleasant if you spend a lot of time there; wire before painting.

5. Keep It Organized Once you’ve fixed up your garage, keep it organized by periodically throwing out items you don’t use, says Izsak.

before you begin to help you avoid costly remodeling later, says Crane. “If you want fans and extra lighting, plan for that before you drywall and paint. If you want a sink to wash off tools, put it in when you first make changes,” he adds. Izsak suggests dividing the garage into zones with areas for sports gear, work tools and toys. Maximize space by using all three walls, selecting a mix of closed, open and mobile cabinets, racks and individual lockers for family members. Gary Fraser, owner of North Shore Closet in Salem, Mass., also suggests building in flexibility by using adjustable shelves. And remember to make the ceiling your fourth wall. Racks can be hoisted manually or electronically above cars to keep rarely used goods out of the way.

Ask Our Broker: Answering your real estate questions By PETER G. MILLER CTW Features Q: The new FHA reform bill will bail out some 400,000 borrowers who want better loans. This is unfair. Why should my tax dollars go to help people who in many cases lied on their loan applications and bought homes that they knew they couldn’t afford. Why should I help lenders who offered lousy loan products or didn’t property underwrite borrower applications? I pay my mortgage and would like a lower rate, but there’s no government program to help me. How is any of this fair?

Miller

A: This is a comment that I hear frequently, and it’s not an unreasonable view. In practice, though, there are good reasons to favor the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008. First, lenders offered “stated

income” loan applications to many borrowers, applications where the lender did not verify income claims. Such applications are widely known as “liar loans” - with good reason. Second, lenders did offer option ARMs and other loan products that were bound to fail in large numbers because the terms were preposterous - low start rates, foolish qualification standards, negative amortization, huge payment resets and big prepayment penalties. Third - and most importantly - the Federal Reserve did not use the authority it has had since 1994 under the Home Ownership and Equity Protection Act to ban “unfair and deceptive acts or practices.” In effect, the Fed could have forced lenders to verify loan applications and it could have banned high-risk mortgages by simply defining them as unfair. Had the Fed acted in 2003 or 2004, we simply would not have today’s mortgage meltdown. So why should you favor help for some borrowers who may have lied and lenders who dumped traditional standards? The answer is self-interest.

COLDWELL BANKER

The value of your home will not increase as long as your local market is swamped with a huge inventory of unsold properties. The marketplace has to absorb such homes because until it does supply will greatly outstrip demand - and that means lower prices, reduced property tax collections and less equity. The bottom line: The faster we get rid of unsold homes the sooner real-estate values will stabilize. It may be galling - and it may be unfair - but it’s the reality.

consideration” - love and affection - you both may be able to avoid big transfer taxes.) However, if you can buy the property then two other central issues arise: First, the fact that your wife has sold her interest to you does not mean she is no longer on the existing mortgage. It may well be that as a condition of the sale you will be required to refinance the property so that she’s no longer responsible for the debt. Second, speak with lenders to see how the income from someone else can be treated with a loan application. There will be a difference depending on the individual’s status - renter, resident coowner or non-resident co-owner. This is a discussion to have before you make a purchase offer to your wife.

Q: My wife and I purchased a home four years ago. We are now separated, and I would like to buy her out. Once we agree on a price what documents are involved and which folks should we contact to make this possible? I would also like to maintain Q: What is a “rent concesmy current loan and have a sion” lease and why is it good third party pay half to lower or bad? my monthly payments. A: At first, a rent concession sounds like a discount and that’s A: If you and your wife can something tenants should welagree to a purchase price, and if come. However, “rent concession” your respective attorneys agree, leases are actually banned in some then the property is yours. (And, jurisdictions and here’s why: if you can arrange a sale for “good Imagine that a landlord of-

fers to rent a property for $1,500 a month but if you pay by the 5th then you get a discount and only need to pay $1,200. So what’s the catch? Isn’t a rental discount a good deal? If there was a discount the answer might be yes, but in this situation like units nearby routinely rent for $1,200. In other words, at $1,200 you’re already paying the fair market rent for the property. If you’re late in this case you’re actually paying a $300 penalty plus a late fee. Many jurisdictions limit late fees to a given percentage of the rental amount, thus a rent concession arrangement can easily exceed the allowable penalty. For specifics, contact your local housing office or state attorney general. Need real estate advice? Peter G. Miller, author of “The Common-Sense Mortgage,” would like to hear from you.
