Late Summer Projects to Complete Before Fall If you’re still enjoying the lazy days of summer, there are some projects you can be doing to prep your home for fall. Knocking out some small projects now will not only lessen the workload down the road but will also help you avoid the stress and expense of emergency situations in the thick of cooler weather. 1. HAVE YOUR FURNACE INSPECTED.

While the thought of heating your house in August probably isn’t at the top of your list, August is a great month to have an HVAC pro come in (before they get much busier in the fall and winter) and check for leaks, heating inefficiencies, and change your furnace filter. 2. SEAL DRAFTS.

Check around windows and doors to see where leaks may be occurring. Now is a great time to take care of patching holes and caulking around windows while the weather is still warm - you’ll be able to feel some warm air coming through any holes. 3. INSPECT TREES AND FERTILIZE YOUR LAWN. The end of the summer is a great time to do yard related tasks. Inspect the trees on your property and get rid of any dead limbs before storms hit. Also, take the time to fertilize your lawn now to help guard against winter damage. 4. INSPECT YOUR ROOF.

Before fall leaves and winter snow wear your roof down, take the time to have loose shingles replaced and any patches made.

24 |

5. TEST HOME SAFETY DEVICES.

Use this time to test all your smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors or fire extinguishers. Replace batteries or install new ones so you’re ready to go once it’s time to fire up the fireplace. And, speaking of the fireplace: 6. CLEAN YOUR FIREPLACE.

Chimney sweeps get very busy once the fall season is in full swing, so make an appointment to have your fireplace professionally cleaned during this off-season.

So, while you take a break from relaxing and soaking up the last bit of summer, give your home that TLC to make sure it’s ready to take on the changes fall will bring. Consider hiring a home services contractor or handyman service that can help you tackle multiple tasks like those above, or reach out to a specific provider like a roofer or chimney sweep. Getting some of these things taken care of now will let you enjoy more of your fall.

SHOULD YO U B U Y A V A C AT I O N HOME? S I G N S YO U SHOULD

Many people opt for buying a second home or a vacation home. Before you start your search, you’ll need to make sure you can commit to buying that vacation home. Here are some signs that you can pull it off:

26 |

Vol. 35-7 | www.RealEstateBook.com


1. YOU CAN AFFORD IT.

3. YOU DID YOUR RESEARCH.

You don’t want to buy a home that will leave you over your head in debt, but if your finances allow you to comfortably afford it, go ahead. Keep in mind, you’ll need to pay utility bills, maintenance fees and insurance premiums. And depending on the neighborhood, there might be homeowner’s association fees too.

When visiting an area that you’re considering for a future home, enjoy yourself, but also take the time to understand what the surrounding area also has to offer. Also, be sure to visit during different parts of the year, so that you can get a feel for what it’s like to live there during different seasons. And if you plan to retire in this vacation home, make sure there are things like hospitals, doctors, and other amenities nearby.

A quick checklist can help you determine whether you have the funds to support the purchase: • Do you have emergency savings (at least three to six months’ worth of take-home pay)? • Can you make a 20 percent down payment? • Have you put away enough money for retirement? • Have you calculated the potential return on your investment?

4. YOU HAVE A PLAN. Buying a seasonal home can be worth it if you have a plan in place. If you plan on renting the house out on Airbnb or Vacation Rental by Owner (VRBO), look at what similar houses are renting for. Then you can plan accordingly to determine how much income the property might bring in.

• Does it fit in with your long-term investment strategy and financial goals? 2. YOU PAID ATTENTION TO THE MARKET. If you keep track of changes in sales prices in your desired market, you’ll be able to time your purchase carefully. Pay attention to seasonal demand as well – if you wait until the winter to buy that beach house, you might get a better deal.

POWER SAFETY BEFORE OR A F T E R M A J O R S TO R M S When a big storm hits, potential damage to your home is top-of-mind. One of the key areas of costly damage often comes from overlooked sources of electricity. Costly damage to residential electrical systems can be minimized or avoided, while ensuring human safety by following these important steps while preparing homes for an oncoming storm. 1. Before evacuating, unplug all appliances and turn off main power sources and all electrically powered equipment. If you do not have access to the main power, contact an electrician or your electric company to assist. 2. If you have an on-site generator, test it before the storm to ensure functionality. If you have a generator, be sure to keep it outside of your home, as it produces carbon monoxide. Equip your home with a working, battery powered carbon monoxide detector as well, and test that it works before firing up the generator. Following the storm, residents, rescuers and others in the area should take additional precautions, including: x Do not enter a home or building that has x Locate the main panel to see if any circuit standing water inside until it is confirmed that breakers or fuses have tripped if there is no the main power is shut off. electricity upon return. x If there are any signs of smoke, fire or water x If there is evidence of flooding but it is difficult damage near electrical outlets, immediately to determine if the main power has been unplug all items in the area and contact an turned off, do not attempt to turn it off. Contact electrician. an electrician or the local electric utility.

Electricity is a dangerous thing, and even more so when water is added to the mix. Pre or post storm do not hesitate to contact your electrician and enlist their help to prepare or help in the post-storm damage assessment.

HOW TO KNOW IF YOU’RE PAYING THE RIGHT PRICE FOR YOUR HOME

W

ith bidding wars commonplace, and so much information on home prices available, it can sometimes be tough to know whether you’re paying a fair price for your home. If you’ re working with a real estate professional whose expertise and guidance you trust, chances are they negotiated the best possible price for you. But here are some other ways to know if you’ve paid the right price:

32 |

Vol. 35-7 | www.RealEstateBook.com


1. CONSIDER THE NEIGHBORHOOD. Location really is everything when it comes to a good real estate investment, so if you bought in a great area odds are you’ve made a good investment and your home’s value will appreciate over time. Ask your agent to show you “comparables” of what other homes in the area sold for and are valued at.

2. PAY ATTENTION TO THE INSPECTION REPORT. If the inspection report comes back with any issues that will require a major investment to repair, this should be reflected in the price you pay for the home. If the owner didn’t pay for the repair, that cost should come out of the purchase price.

3. USE AUTOMATED VALUATION MODELS (AVM) TO GET AN IDEA OF THE VALUE OF YOUR HOME AND THE NEIGHBORHOOD OVER TIME. Ask your real estate agent to recommend a couple they believe are most accurate. The AVM may reveal that while you feel you’re paying too much, the appreciation in a few years’ time makes the investment well worth it.

4. TAKE YOUR PERSONAL CIRCUMSTANCES INTO ACCOUNT. Ultimately, what you pay for the home has everything to do with your personal situation. If the location is extremely important to you, or the design or style is your absolute dream home, then the price is worth it. Taking all these factors into consideration can provide you great peace of mind or provide some necessary concern. Work with your real estate agent to determine whether you’re paying the right price – they will keep your mind at ease and provide helpful guidance. It’s also important to consider how long you intend to live there. If you’re in it for the long haul, odds are you’ll regain your investment. If you’re there for a shorter term, being able to make a quicker profit or rent will be very important. Your personal situation is a critical factor in the price you’re willing to pay.

GET “SMART” WHEN FLIPPING A HOME


Flipping an older home can be a great money maker and financial decision. With a little vision and some sweat equity, you can turn a once-forgotten property into a modem home with massive potential for profit. But flippers will tell you that it’s the upgrades that make the biggest difference. Trading linoleum for tile can make an outdated bathroom chic again. Painting cabinets and adding a backsplash can make a run-down kitchen feel like a chef’s dream. Even investing thousands of dollars to replace outdated appliances can be a worthwhile investment, helping a house with old bones compete with the newly built property just down the road. In addition to those upgrades, adding the right smart home technology to your next flip can make a massive difference with certain home buyers. The best part is that these upgrades are both inexpensive and easy to pull off. Here are three upgrades to consider:

Install Smart Thermostats You might not think that a thermostat would be a big deal, but the thermostats say a lot about the property. An old, outdated thermostat can be an eyesore and a reminder of a home’s advanced age, but a smart thermostat tells potential buyers that the HVAC system is up to modern standards and has been evaluated as part of a renovation. Plus, the fact that homeowners can easily manage and control the system on their smartphone is an attractive feature. Environmentallyconscious buyers are impressed by the smart thermostat’s energy efficiency.

Smart Lighting Can Change the Feel of a Space Another key upgrade to consider is perhaps one of the easiest ones to make: the installation of a few smart bulbs or a smart lighting system. Lighting can completely change the feel of a room, and today’s smart

lighting systems offer a nearly limitless array of colors, dimness settings and light fixtures.

Security Systems Provide a Sense of Safety Modern homebuyers are concerned about security, so adding a smart security system to your property is another great upgrade that will cater directly to your buyers’ needs. Many older security systems require yearly contracts and extensive wiring. Today’s WiFi-enabled cameras and battery-powered security products are both affordable and easy to install. All you need is a few cameras and motion sensors to get started, and they’re easily demonstratable to potential buyers. It doesn’t take much to convert an older home into a modern one. Smart upgrades like these may seem like a small investment, but they can make a massive impact on the decisionmaking of potential buyers. The Real Estate Book® | Vol. 35-7 |
