How to Create an Edge

{ the toolbox }

in the Current Real Estate Market QUALITY CONSIGNMENT, HOME STAGING AND REDESIGN SET TO BLOOM IN NEW HAMPSHIRE

|

Buyer’s Guide to Real Estate and Home Improvement, March 2009

www .The-BuyersGuide. com


IN THIS REAL ESTATE MARKET, REALTORS, HOME SELLERS AND BUYERS NEED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ANYTHING THAT WILL MAKE A HOME MORE DESIRABLE FOR THE SMALLEST INVESTMENT.

The newly frugal, or “New Fru,” are discovering the benefits of quality furniture consignment shopping, home staging and redecorating. All three help us to save money and get the most pleasure from our homes whether we are dwelling or selling. By shopping the secondary market we can learn to furnish the same for thousands less than retail, as well as helping our neighbors, ourselves and the planet. “Finding the right shop is key,” says Karen Nardella, owner and proprietor of The Emporium Consignment Outlet and Home Staging Center in Conway. As a seller’s agent, the shop has helped many make a better profit over private sales and helps others refeather their nests more affordably. Stores such as the Emporium attract people who are ready to simplify their lives and downsize as well as people who’ve spent a lot of money on beautiful higher-quality furnishings and welcome the chance to make a fair return from it. “Our shoppers recognize that shopping this way is greener and smarter. They’re people who appreciate quality and consistency”,

says Nardella. “It is a win, win for all.” Another service which can help out people who are thinking of selling a home is the Home Staging process. A professional Home Stager or Redecorator is trained to prepare your home in ways that will help it sell faster and for a better profit. To educate people as to the benefits of Home Staging, Nardella is beginning a lecture series, starting in March. It is all about “Learning to Re-love and Romance our Homes” and will offer free tips to help homeowners. “My goal is to help grow awareness of these new services and ways to shop and perhaps excite some to take up this new trade,” say Nardella. With more than 20 years of experience in Consignment, Redecorating and Home Staging, Nardella understands how important these services are. Even if your home is not on the market, Nardella believes that “A home is a place where memories are made and enjoyed. Your home should make you smile at the end of a busy day, just to see it. I want to help us all learn to relove our homes - and do so affordably.” For more information on selling on consignment, consignment shopping and the lecture series, visit

[ REALTOR Report ]

A report from the White Mountain Board of Realtors

WHAT’S A SELLER TO DO? IT SEEMS THAT LATELY THERE IS PLENTY OF TALK ABOUT IT BEING A BUYER’S MARKET, FIRST-TIME BUYERS MARKET ETC. IF YOU ARE A SELLER, THIS CAN BE FRUSTRATING AND HARD TO HEAR. SO, THIS MONTH I HAVE FOCUSED ON SELLERS AND WHAT THEY CAN DO TO IMPROVE THEIR CHANCES OF A QUICK SUCCESSFUL SALE.

PREPARE YOURSELF FOR A SALE – It is important to mentally prepare

yourself for a sale. You need to start to see the house as a product for sale; no longer as your home with the emotional ties. Start to see your house the way a potential buyer would.

SHOP YOUR COMPETITION & BE REALISTIC – Before listing your

home have your REALTOR tour you through the competition. Don’t help the competitors by over pricing your home. The right price is key to a successful sale. Remember, be objective and look at it as a buyer would.

HAVE A PROFESSIONAL HOME INSPECTION – This will alert you to

any items that could potentially kill a sale. Once you have had a home inspection either fix the issues or price the home accordingly.

CHECK YOUR CURB APPEAL – How does your home look as you drive by? You only get one chance to make a first impression! In this market, buyers have a number of choices, so often times they will drive by listings before having their REALTOR show them a listing. Your property could be cut from their list before they ever make it inside. Clean up the yard, put out a new welcome mat, repaint the front door, make sure grass stays mowed and in winter keep pathways cleared and accessible.

SPRING CLEAN & UN- CLUTTER – Whether it’s spring or not, make

sure your house looks and smells great. Remove all unneeded belongings; de-personalize the home. Consider renting a storage unit or neatly packing things into attic or basement. Trends show that today’s buyers like open, spacious areas. Even if you have small rooms, putting away extra furnishings and personal belongings will help create a more spacious feel. This also helps the buyer picture their own belongings in the space. PS- Don’t forget the closets! Buyers love to snoop – so make sure your closets and cabinets are neat and clean too. Make sure there is plenty of extra room, by removing unused items and storing them.

attractions, schools, etc. and provide these items to your REALTOR. Also, buyers may like to know what is under all that snow – make sure to have pictures of your home and it’s yard in all 4 seasons and display them for potential buyers.

REMOVE YOUR FAVORITE THINGS – If the chandelier in the dining room is a heirloom you wouldn’t dream of leaving behind, pack it up now and replace it. Many sales are lost over trivial items such as this.

ADD A FRESH COAT OF PAINT –

This is a cost effective way to breathe new life into any room in your home. Remember stick to neutral colors.

THINK AHEAD – Get together
