Remodeling Rebounds homes (having moderate or severe physical problems) went up 7 percent between 2007 and 2011 to more than 2.4 million, suggesting that many homes are overdue for improvement. Additionally, the future market potential for increased remodeling is huge, considering that the emerging generation of echo-boomers – who will be 21 to 40 years old by 2025 – is expected to be the largest in our nation’s history, which should increase demand for home renovation. “Our current quarterly projection for the national remodeling and home improvement market shows a really strong trend – almost a 20 percent increase in spending year-over-year through the third quarter of this year,” says Abbe Will, co-author of the study and research analyst for JCHSHU. Will says the latest numbers imply that homeowners may end up spending more on discretionary remodeling projects – perhaps kitchen and bath improvements and other aesthetic improvements, rather than structural or essential jobs. “We expect that 2013 will be a good remodeling year for homeowners,” Will says. – Erik J. Martin

U.S. housing stock ready again for major improvements, new study shows The remodeling market may be waking up from the doldrums, according to a biennial report by the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University (JCHSHU). After spending on home improvement projects declined during the recent economic downturn, several indicators suggest that Americans are ready to renovate again and renew the nation’s housing stock. For example, previously foreclosed properties are being rehabilitated, as evidenced by $10 billion spent in 2011 on improvement costs for distressed properties. Older homeowners are retrofitting their homes to accommodate their future needs – by 2011, homeowners age 55 and older accounted for 45 percent of all home improvement spending, up from less than 33 percent a decade ago. Plus, spending on energy-related home improvement projects rose from 23 percent in 2007 to 33 percent in 2011. Also, the number of inadequate owner-occupied

5 Ways a Home May Turn Off Buyers Bankrate.com recently featured a list of the top ways buyers back away from a home listed for sale. Its list includes these items, among others:

6896 Farm To Market Rd, Bow 88 acres of beautiful soil along Samish River. Includes 3 parcels; P33830, P33846, P33813. Affordable water from BEWA. Edison School District. New roof installed last year. Large windows to take in the Mt. Baker view. Buyers agree to continue Open Space Taxation. Call Becky Elde 360-770-9427 MLS#: 48513 $700,000

419 S 10th St, Mount Vernon $195,000

1. Dirt: "The No. 1 biggest mistake is not getting the home in the best possible condition. That's huge," says Chad Goldwasser of Goldwasser Real Estate in Austin, Texas. Goldwasser suggests also steam-cleaning tile and grout and carpets and replacing carpets if necessary.

Call Jim Nicholas 360-708-9379 MLS#: 497257 $155,000

2. Odors: "Odors are a big one, especially kitchen odors," says Julie Dana, co-author of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Staging Your Home to Sell. "I advise my clients not to cook fried food, fish, or greasy food while the house is on the market. ... Interestingly, next to the kitchen, the smelliest room in the house is actually the living room. She recommends having curtains and upholstery cleaned.

1435 sq. ft. 2007 home w/3 BR, 2.5 BA built to conform to the zoning code of a condo. Lg family room w/surround sound speaker & hardwood birch floors, living room w/laminated floor. Master w/walk in closet and BA. Approx. 10’x20’ storage area.

3. Old fixtures: "You need to change out old fixtures in your house," Goldwasser says, adding outdated ceiling fans and light fixtures should be replaced prior to listing a home. "New cabinet hardware and doorknobs will probably cost all of $400 or $500, but it makes a huge difference."

610 Section St #74, Mount Vernon Beautiful remodeled 2 BR, 2 BA, 1456 sq. ft. home for 55+. Spotless carpeting, laminated floors, custom interior paint, windowed breakfast room & formal dining area. Lg. kitchen w/lots of cabinet space. Spacious living room & master. Owner’s prepaid Certified Home Inspection documentation available Call Jim Nicholas 360-708-9379 MLS#: 424119 $59,500

16573 Beaver Marsh Rd, Mount Vernon

Beautifully restored 1909 Craftsman style home in the heart of Skagit County on 2.68 acres. Shop/barn connects to pasture. Original fir flooring throughout, lg. BA upstairs + upper deck opens off master w/views of Mt. Baker, Olympic Mtns. Heated outdoor swimming pool w/hot tub. Guest suite w/BA off main entrance Call Mike Whitney 360-421-4310 MLS#: 440085 $340,000

4. Wallpaper: When buyers see wallpaper, they think of another thing to add to their to-do list, says Dana. "Wallpaper is extremely personalized. What are the odds that the person walking in the door will also like that wallpaper that you picked out?". 5. Too many personal items: Cluttered homes make it difficult for buyers to see past the home owner’s belongings and start envisioning themselves there. "Anything that makes your house scream 'you' is what you don't want".
