THE PILOT — SOUTHERN PINES, N.C.

Dear Community,

Property Appraisal is Important

Real estate, when purchased well is still one of the best tools for creating and maintaining wealth in America. An important part of your real estate investment is the property appraisal. A real estate appraisal helps to establish a property's market and loan value. A mortgage lender will require an appraisal when you use your home or other real estate as security for a loan. The mortgage lender wants to make sure that the property will sell for at least the amount of money it is lending on the property. Don’t confuse real estate appraisals with a comparative market analysis (CMA) which Realtors® use to help home sellers determine a realistic asking price. An appraiser’s report is very detailed. The report includes: • details about the subject property along with comparisons of similar properties. • an evaluation of the overall real estate market in the area. • comments about issues that the appraiser feels are supportive or harmful to the property. • an evaluation of the physical characteristics of the property. • an estimate of the average sales time for the property. So what does the appraisal mean to you? Your final loan commitment hinges on a satisfactory appraisal. The mortgage

company wants to be sure its investment is covered. Borrowers must be provided with a copy of the appraisal, unless waived by parties. The borrower is responsible for the cost of the appraisal. If the property appraises less than the agreed upon sales price the mortgage might be declined. Don’t panic if the appraisal comes in low, your Realtor® can often advise you on steps you can take to make the deal work. Appraisers are licensed and must be in good standing with the state. Appraisers adhere to strict code of ethics. Many appraisers are members of Realtors® Associations and MLS's so that comparative data is readily available on specific geographic markets. Appraisers must be completely independent of the transactions and the loan originating company. The National Association of REALTORS®, “The Voice for Real Estate,” is America’s largest trade association, representing more than 1.2 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries. The Pinehurst-Southern Pines Area Association of REALTORS® is one of more than 1,400 local boards and associations of REALTORS® nationwide that comprise the National Association of REALTORS®.

New Homes of the Future: Smaller, Greener and More Casual

The economic downturn has changed the way Americans look at a lot of things, including what they are looking for in their next home. A study by the National Association of Home Builders suggests that the recession has caused prospective home buyers to shift their perspective on the housing they want

and need, and that the new home of the future will focus more on efficiency than indulgence. The survey asked builders, designers, architects, manufacturers, and marketing specialists about what they thought the likely characteristics of the average, new singlefamily detached home would be in 2015.

First, the typical size of new homes will continue to shrink, with respondents saying they expect homes to average 2,152 square feet. That is 10 percent smaller than the average size of single-family homes started in 2010. Census Bureau data shows that the average size peaked in 2007, at 2,521 square feet. This decrease is likely influenced by economic hardship, with consumers focusing on lowering the cost of heating and cooling their homes as well as no longer having a lot of equity in their current homes to finance purchasing a much larger one. An aging population — 29 percent of the U.S. population will be 55 and older in the year

2020 — will also increase demand for smaller homes as emptynesters downsize into easier-tomanage properties. A smaller home means the space must be better suited to modern lifestyles. Fifty-two percent of builders expect the living room to be merged with other spaces in the home by 2015 and 30 percent said it will vanish entirely. Respondents also expect the entry foyer and dining rooms to become smaller, or merge with other spaces. A great room comprised of the kitchen, foyer and living room is the most likely room to be included in the average

new home. Some of the rooms least likely to be present include two master bedroom suites, a sunroom, a hobbies room, and a media room. Kitchens are also expected to become more functional. Double sinks, recessed lighting, table space for eating, a breakfast bar and pull-out drawers are the features most likely to be in the new home kitchen in 2015. In addition to floor plan changes, it is expected that new homes in 2015 will include more green features and technology, including low-E windows; engineered wood beams, joists or

tresses; water-efficient features such as dualflush toilets or low-flow faucets; and an ENERGY STAR rating for the whole house. Surprisingly, some new home features that have been popular in recent years are expected to lose favor with home buyers in the future. Less than a third of survey respondents said they thought more technology features, more universal features and more outdoor living features would be the first or second most probable trend.

Instant gratification: Painting projects to update your decor in one weekend

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2011

(ARA) - Updating the decor in your home doesn't have to be a long, laborious or expensive process. Instead, get a little instant gratification by using paint to easily refresh areas and items throughout the house. With a little cash and a free weekend, you can makeover your house right now. Furniture facelift Whether it's an old pair of chairs in the attic or a desk that's seen better days, it's easy to breathe new life into pieces of forgotten furniture with a fresh coat of paint. You can add interest and a pop of color to any room. A semigloss finish works best when painting furniture because it's

easy to clean and hides any imperfections. How to: * Make sure the surface is clean, dull and dry. * Prime with a stain blocking primer to ensure the surface is properly sealed. This will help the paint go on evenly and uniformly. * With a high-quality mini-roller, like those from Purdy, apply the paint of your choice to achieve the best finish. These tools are versatile, lightweight, and can quickly and easily deliver a perfect finish with smooth rolling action. * For extra protection, brush on two thin, even coats of water-based polyurethane.

Door do-over Changing the color of an interior door can make a big impact in any room. The key to getting this update right: color selection. Choose color similar to your walls for the door, because you don't want the contrast to be jarring. Be sure to paint the frame too, so the door doesn't seem to float in space, and use a gloss or semi-gloss finish. How to: * Remove door and hinges from the wall. * Make sure the door is clean dull and dry. * Prime bare, sanded woodwork; there's no need to prime previously painted surfaces if they're in good condi-

tion. However, if you are going over an existing oil-based paint with a latex paint, follow the instructions on the paint can on how to prime. * When applying paint or primer, work from the center of the door outwards in the following order: molding, inside panels, rails, stiles * Once paint is completely dry, re-hang door using existing hinges. Step to it For an unexpected update, paint an area of the house that doesn't usually receive a lot of love your stair risers. They

can get nicked and scuffed easily, so a fresh finish - and color - can really perk up the staircase. If you're unsure of which shade to choose, cut and paint cardboard pieces the same size of the risers and position them on the steps to get an idea of the effect. How to: * Dust risers with a broom and cover steps with masking paper; secure with painter's tape. * Apply latex primer to wooden risers or metal etching primer to metallic ones. Brush horizontally and let dry for at least two

hours. Mini rollers are another tool to consider especially over metal. * Apply gloss, latex paint with a clean brush or mini roller. Let first coat dry two hours, then apply second coat. * Wait a day for the paint to cure and then add a third coat for the most durable finish. Remember: Painting is the easiest way to make a dramatic and instant impact on a room. This weekend, get inspired and makeover with these simple and inexpensive projects.
