MOORE COUNTY HOME BUILDERS ASSOCIATION

Take Advantage of Buying Now by Selling with Smarts

With today’s changing housing market, the opportunities to buy a new home are tremendous. Interest rates are low, prices are extremely competitive, and many builders are offering fantastic incentives. But if you’re like two-thirds of people in the new home buying market today, you’ve got a home to sell first. On any given Sunday afternoon, hosts of lookers are visiting open houses across the country. How can you prepare for an open house? It’s a question on many sellers’ minds. Follow these tips, have a plan and you’ll have likely will have a new home buyer signing on your dotted line sooner than you may expect. Experts say the home’s cleanliness, condition, and overall appearance create traffic from potential buyers. This traffic generates offers on a correctly priced home. An important thing to keep in mind about setting a price is to remain realistic. Some sellers are concerned that the value of their houses have declined slightly and want to wait until prices have gone back again. Think about it this way: It’s always better to trade up in a buyer’s market, like the one we are

in now. For the sake of argument assume since the highest point of the market your home value has dropped 10 percent, from $300,000 to $270,000. While the value of your house has fallen, the price of higher-end homes has also dropped. A home selling for $500,000 in the past has also dropped 10 percent in value, and now sells at $450,000. If you sold your home today for $270,000 and purchased the larger house for $450,000, the difference in price would be $180,000. But if you waited to recoup the 10 percent value on your home and sold it at $300,000, chances are that same larger home would also move up in price to at least $500,000. That is potentially $200,000 price difference between the two homes. So by selling today, you would actually save $20,000 moving up now. While how much you ask for your home is obviously the key factor in many buyers’ minds the presentation and cleanliness of the home is crucial. The buyer

must be able to envision their belonging in their “new” potential home. Keep personal items like photographs to a minimum. Locate any clutter around your home and either throw it out or organize it neatly. Consider how often you use items in the clutter. If you haven’t used it in over a year it may be time to toss it. Don’t forget that some items can be donated to various items in your community which may be a better option for some items than throwing them out. Clean off your kitchen countertops and pack up small knickknacks. Not only will the house appear more organized and spacious; but you may get a heads up on packing up for your impending move. Pack up essential items into a box that can be easily moved into a closet when not in use. You may want to remove most books from your bookshelves, leaving just a few with some nice decorative pieces. Remember that potential buyers will like to look

everywhere in the home. Organize all of your closet spaces and kitchen cabinets. Before the open house is the time to do a full and thorough cleaning of the areas in your home you’ve been avoiding organizing the past year. Renting a storage unit may be helpful as well. Remove any furniture that blocks walkways or windows. Consider stowing away your now empty freestanding bookcases. Removing extra table leaves will make rooms appear larger and remember to leave just enough furniture to showcase the room’s purpose. While it is essential the buyer is able to see their things in the home; a home that is too empty can appear cold and lifeless. Make any minor repairs you can before potential buyers come through. Wash your windows inside and out. Polish up faucets and mirrors and don’t forget to hang fresh towels in the bathrooms and kitchen. Overly worn rugs should be stowed away or replaced and the entire house should be vacuumed. Consider having the carpets shampooed and air out any musty smelling areas. Off scents will surely break a potential

buyer’s interest if even on a subconscious level. Other tips include turning on all of the lights to highlight the home’s amenities and setting the dining room table for a “decorative appeal.” Buy fresh flowers for vases throughout the home. Make sure the doorbell is working and children’s rooms “are minimally personal.” If potential buyers do not have children, you want them to see the room as a possible guest bedroom or office, while maintaining a possibility of children’s room for those with kids. Keep “curb appeal” in mind as well. Walk outside and see what your house looks like. How does the landscaping look? How about the front porch? Make certain that your house number can be read from the street and remember to keep your sidewalks

clear and your lawn mowed. Trim shrubs and trees and if needed, freshen mulch beds and consider planting some flowers. Selling your home doesn’t have to be a headache if you are prepared. And most of all remember to relax. Keep things in perspective. While it may take more than a week to sell your home -- as was often the case during the boom years of real estate, with a little extra preparation your home will be sold before you know it and you’ll be moving into you new dream home. For more information on selling your home, contact The Moore County Home Builders Association at www.mchba.com or visit the National Association of Home Builders at www.nahb.org/timetobuy.

If you’re like many hopeful homebuyers — especially those who have little or no equity to invest in a property — you may be facing the dilemma of how to best use your cash. Should you save it for the downpayment, or is it smarter to improve your credit rating by paying down debt? The answer depends on how much debt you’re carrying when you apply for a mortgage. First, estimate how much you can realistically afford to pay each month on a home loan, including property taxes and insurance. Then add in the payments you must make toward all other debt, such as car loans, credit cards and charge accounts. If the total of those payments is less than 36-38 percent of you monthly income and there are no other

“I will provide an outstanding mortgage experience from application to closing”

blemishes on your credit report, you’ll probably qualify for financing. If the total exceeds 36-38 percent of your income it may be wisest to pay down the debt to a more reasonable level before applying for a home loan. If your personal debt is within reasonable limits, however, most experts agree that putting your cash toward a downpayment reaps the greatest long-term benefits. By making a downpayment of at least 20 percent, you can avoid the cost of private mortgage insurance (PMI). Plus, every dollar you add to the downpayment results in instant eq-

uity which is likely to grow each year. Added to the tax advantages of owning a home, those are consistent gains that can offset many credit card payments.

How to get your house clean in half the time

PAGE D6

THE PILOT — SOUTHERN PINES, N.C.

(ARA) - It's the weekend: Would you rather spend it scrubbing and mopping or going to the movies and meeting up with friends? It's not a tough question to answer for most people. Cleaning the house can take hours, or even days, depending on how much you need to get done and how long it's been since the last "deep clean." What most people don't know is how to clean efficiently, in a way that saves time and gets the job done quicker. The pros of the home cleaning business know how to prioritize, organize and lay out a plan of attack that gets the job done not just quickly but thoroughly. The professionals at house cleaning companies like Merry Maids typically clean multiple homes a day, so resourceful cleaning is critical. Here are some of Merry Maids' top techniques and tools for speed-cleaning your house, room by room. If you start using these cleaning tips on a regular basis, your house will be cleaner in less time, and major cleaning sessions won't seem so daunting because your house will already be in good order. Time-saving tricks * Straighten up the house before the cleaning begins. Clutter slows down your cleaning. Go through the house room by room and put away items that are lying out.

But don't sweep things under the proverbial rug. Shoving items in drawers and closets just to get them out of the way isn't a good idea. You're going to have to deal with it again eventually - why not take care of it immediately by putting it in its proper place? * Work from a list. Think logically about where you're going to start and end, rather than bouncing between rooms and floors of the house. Prioritize what needs to get done and where it makes sense to start. Doing so can help keep you on track and give you the satisfaction of checking completed tasks off the list. If you think of other things as you're working, add them to the list and address them when appropriate. * Stay focused. Answering the phone can break your concentration and momentum, so make it a "do not disturb" time. It can be tempting to start reading through catalogs and magazines you're putting in the recycling bin, but if you don't resist the urge, you'll be dragging your chores out and cutting into your own free time. * Set a time limit for each room. Merry Maids suggests setting a kitchen timer before you start each room. Every time you clean, keep track of your time and try to finish cleaning each room a little

pick it all up in your last step. * Don't scrub. Let the cleaning solution do the work for you. Spray tough spots -- such as a soap scum-covered shower wall -- with cleaner and let it soak while you clean something else. You'll make double use of your time and save elbow grease. Time-tested tools * Invest in a 50-foot, heavy-duty extension cord so you plug in the vacuum cleaner only once. * Wear a sturdy canvas carpenter apron that has multiple pockets and can accommodate heavier items. Use it to carry items like an ostrich feather duster, brushes for detail work, a widget (a small tool with a blade for removing stubborn grime) and microfiber cleaning cloths.

* Use a tool caddy to keep tools and cleaning solutions within arm's reach at all times. Carry spray bottles, one with light dilution cleaner, and a second with heavier dilution cleaner; a spray bottle with disinfectant; scouring powder; a toilet brush in a plastic bag (to keep tray clean); a sponge with an attached scouring pad; furniture polish; a whisk broom; rubber gloves (for wet work) and garden gloves (for dry work). Keep your cleaning tools and supplies in tip-top shape so they'll last longer. And for extra time savings, wash tools after each cleaning and make sure your bottles are filled. That way, you'll be ready start the next round of cleaning without any hassle. For more clever cleaning ideas, go to www.merrymaids.com.

faster than the time before. * Choose a focal point within each room as a beginning point. Whether it's the kitchen sink or the bathroom shower, giving yourself something to focus on immediately can help motivate you to get started. As you finish one area, move to the next in a clockwise direction. * Use both hands. Finish one step with one hand, and then begin the next with the other. This not only will make you work faster, but it will even out the workload so one arm isn't doing all the work. * Don't backtrack. Go around the room only once -- a lot of time is often lost going over areas that have already been cleaned. Just remember that you should save the floor for last -- if you disturb dust or debris as you work, it'll fall, and you can

In the kitchen Savvy storage When it's time to put away leftovers, do you struggle to find matching lids and bowls? Or do your plastic storage containers seem to take over your entire storage space?

robe hook, such as the Sage or Reed collections at Bed Bath & Beyond, on the side of a cabinet or an island to keep dish towels handy (and off the floor), while adding a stylish look to the kitchen. In the bathroom Shower and storage Space and storage are key concerns in bathroom design; luckily, you can create up to 5 1/2 additional inches of elbow room in the shower, while also adding extra hanging space for daily essentials with the new Double Curved Shower Rod from Moen ($59.99). Double Curved Shower Rods, available at Bed Bath & Beyond, also offer visual appeal with a separate rod for the decorative shower curtain - or provide easily accessible space to hang your towels. Simple space solution No matter how organized your bathroom, it's always tough to find a place for the many daily necessities that we want at our fingertips. Now, you can easily keep these items within arm's reach - yet off the vanity - with new Towel Bar Hooks and Shower Rod Hooks from Moen ($10). These ingenious, Sshaped hooks snap right onto your current towel bar or shower rod to offer convenient

access for a variety of items, such as clothing, jewelry, towels, travel bags and more. In the garage Up and out When looking for more storage space in the garage, don't forget to look up. Often overlooked, the overhead area is ideal to suspend a variety of larger items, such as bikes, that take up coveted floor space. For only a few dollars, you can purchase large plastic-coated hooks that easily screw into the ceiling joist and allow you to hang the bicycle upside down by the tires. Or try a bike hoist ($39) that also suspends the bike from the ceiling - but uses a pulley to make lifting the bike easier. Balls, bats and shovels, oh my Unfortunately, most items stored in the garage are large and irregularly shaped, making it difficult to neatly store them on shelves. Specialized organization systems for sporting goods and lawn equipment are available to confine anything from bats and balls to shovels and rakes. The RacorPro X-Rack Sports Equipment Organizer ($79.99) sets up quickly and easily and the basket design will entice anyone to toss their items in. Or, try the Funnel Fits Long Handle Tool Storage System ($26) that

snaps garden tools like shovels, rakes and brooms onto the wall and out of the way. With a few innovative, practical and affordable products, your home will be more organized in no time. For more information about Moen products, visit www.moen.com or www.bedbathand-

BackPack Pals: Feeding Moore Children

Hundreds of children leave school on Friday afternoon and have little or nothing to eat until they return on Monday morning. The BackPack Pals program started by Moore County Schools with "seed money" from St. Joseph of the Pines. Students are selected for the program with input from teachers, social workers, teacher assistants and administrators. The identified students receive food in their BackPacks to take home for the weekend. Volunteers meet at the Food Bank every Thursday at 1 p.m. to set up an assembly line of items that will be given to the children for the weekend. After they are filled, volunteers deliver them back to their respective schools. For more information with regards to the BackPack Pals program or volunteering your time, please contact Linda Hubbard, 910-947-2342.
