Do Renovations Increase the Value of Your Home?

by The Jamey Kramer Group
Do Renovations Increase the Value of Your Home?

Are You Wondering If It's Worth It To Renovate?

This big question is: if you put more time and money into your home, will you get the return on investment you were hoping for when you go to sell it?

It is a beautiful day in Novi, Michigan. With a high of 68 degrees we say good-bye to summer and hello to fall this week. Fall is one of the most gorgeous times of year in Novi with tree leaves turning an array of vibrant reds, yellows and oranges.

Is It Really Worth It To Renovate? 

Today we are going to look at a question many home owners ask themselves: is it really worth it to renovate? Renovating can be a lot of elbow grease, especially if you do it yourself. We've all heard that renovating certain parts of your home will actually increase your home’s value. We know there are less expensive ways like changing out fixtures or replacing the knobs on the kitchen cabinets.

However, as the market is increasing more and more, people are finally feeling the relief they needed to put their home on the market. With so many homes now on the market, what will make your home stand out? We've been looking at 2013 Cost vs. Value report to see if it is really worth it to renovate.

2013 Cost vs. Value Report

This is the 25th report that Remodeling Magazine has published. The reports look at 81 cities all across America. It shows the cost of overall construction on popular renovating projects and compares them to the resale value. 

Here's the good news:  the average cost to value ratio has improved. It hasn't just improved, but it is the best it's been in 6 years. One of the biggest reasons why this has happened is the lower cost of construction. 

Prior to the recession, the cost to value ratio was so high that it turned many homeowners away from replacing projects. Since the recession, price is now on everyone's mind and replacement jobs have increased. This is because of the lower cost of construction along with the increase value it gives to your home.

What we mean by replacement is to completely replace what is current existing. Remodeling means just that; to remodel instead of completely replacing. 

So Where Do You Put Your Money?

Here are 5 remodels that scored high on the report

  • Entry Door Replacement
  • Fiber Cement Siding
  • Wood Deck Addition
  • Garage Door Replacement
  • Minor Kitchen Remodel 

It looks like first impressions are taking the lead in recent market trends for value. Normally when you think of renovating, whether you are remodeling or replacing, you may be thinking kitchen and bathrooms. According to this report, the money to renovate your home should be spent on the outside of it - the curb appeal. 

What are your thoughts?

Will you be tackling that remodeling project that you have put on the back burner before putting your house on the market?

How To Achieve That Perfect Curb Appeal Without Breaking the Bank

by The Jamey Kramer Group
Perfect curb appeal without breaking the bank

Would you like to sell your home?

Are you looking for a way to make your house stand out without spending too much money?

Curb appeal is one of the most significant elements of a home when someone is trying to sell it because it is the buyer’s first impression. In some cases, it can actually make or break a sale. Research shows that homes with anesthetically pleasing curb appeal command higher prices and take less time to sell.

In our article, How to Amp Up Your Homes Curb Appeal for Less, we shared easy ways to really stand out by,

  • Cleaning up the Yard
  • Put toys away
  • Fix the address numbers
  • Fresh coat of paint on the door and mailbox
  • Planting flowers

Perfect Curb Appeal Without Breaking the Bank

If we are really looking to go the extra mile to ramp up that curb appeal, we have a few more ideas that might help.

Start With a Plan

Bring your realtor in and start discussing what you want to do to improve the curb appeal of your house. Next, determine how much you are willing to spend. According to Better Homes and Gardens,

        A common mistake many gardeners make is to dive into landscaping without having a plan -- which leads to plants that may not be a good fit for a particular site or landscaping features that don't work well in an overall scheme. How do you keep your landscape costs low and avoid that rookie mistake? Decide on a plan for your entire yard before you even pick up a trowel.”

Plant Drought-Tolerant Plants

Planting fresh flowers can really add a special touch a home’s landscaping. Planting flowers that are drought tolerant will add something more. Don’t be afraid to point this out to any potential home buyer because certain varieties won’t need that much water. Some drought tolerant flowers are:

  • Butterfly bush
  • Rosemary
  • Barberry
  • Lilacs

Invest in Mulch

Fresh mulch can be really eye catching, but it can also be expensive. Try asking around your neighborhood and find out if one of your neighbors is also interested in purchasing mulch and if they would be interested in going in on a bulk mulch purchase. Buying landscaping items like mulch, compost, sand, and gravel in bulk will save you money and add to your overall curb appeal.

The first impressions of your home do make an impact on potential buyers purchasing decisions. As many people start their home hunting on the Internet, sprucing up your home’s curb appeal is a wise investment. When you feel like the curb appeal of your home couldn’t look any better, have quality photos taken. If a picture is worth 1,000 words, then having a variety of high quality photos available online will multiply the chances of your potential buyers deciding to visit. As your realtor, the Jamey Kramer Group will be able to help you with this by posting the pictures on multi listings and on different social media sites to draw people into your home.

Do you have any other ideas to improve the curb appeal of your home without breaking the bank?

Low Mortgage Rates and Consistent Hiring Equals Highest Homes Sales Since 2009

by The Jamey Kramer Group
Opportunity ahead

Have you been watching the mortgages rates raise?

Are you thinking about purchasing a home?

July was a great month for anyone who was trying to sell their home and today we are going to tell you why. First let me say happy Labor Day. I hope you enjoyed your day off with you friends and family. Here in Northville, Michigan, it was a beautiful cool Labor Day.

The Detroit Free Press reported that the first time since 2009, the pace of the housing market is finally associated with a healthy market. If you have been considering putting your house for sale or looking to finally buy a home, now is the time to do it.

There are two reasons why we recommend purchasing a home or selling your current home right now. Those two reasons are,

  1. Mortgage rates are rising
  2. There is consistent hiring

These two factors have influenced the housing market and have provided what it needed to recover. Let’s take a closer look at both.

Mortgage Rates are Rising

Over the summer mortgages rates have risen almost a full percent. Now even with that rise, a 30-year fixed mortgage is still historically very low at about 4.4% last month. Many of us still remember the days when interest rates were closer to 20% than 5%.

Many Americans have decided to capitalize on the low mortgage rates. As an example, let’s say that you calculated that you were able to spend $1,500 on your monthly mortgage payment. This calculation was determined when you purchased your home in May of 2013 and obtained the 3.5% interest rate.

Now the mortgage rates have risen to 4.4%. Between May and today, nothing would have changed in how much you can afford to pay monthly as it is still $1,500. However, what has changed is that you have gotten yourself more house for that $1,500 by acting back in May.

As the housing market and the economy come back, we will see mortgage rates continue to rise.

Consistent Employment

Typically when people feel confident in their employment, they feel more comfortable in making a large purchase like a house. We are now seeing more and more people feeling confident enough in their employment to make the decision to purchase a home.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics as of August 2, 2013

"Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 162,000 in July, and the unemployment rate edged down to 7.4 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Employment rose in retail trade, food services and drinking places, financial activities, and wholesale trade.”

While many people feel that Americans are not quite out of the woods, the point is that we are on our way. Because the economy is improving, it presents a window of opportunity that you will not want to miss.

 2013 Michigan State Fair

Are you looking for plans this Labor Day weekend?

When is the last time you went to a Michigan State Fair?

For the second straight year in a row, the city of Novi is hosting the Michigan State Fair. This year’s features will include the Detroit Shrine Circus, Michigan beer, plenty of animals and so much more. Today, we wanted to share with you all about the fair.

For many of us, there are many wonderful memories that surround the Michigan State Fair that was hosted in Detroit. It was sad when the annual event was canceled in 2009.

The History of the Michigan State Fair

Did you know that the Michigan State Fair started in Detroit in 1849? It had the honor of being one of the first statewide fair events to take place in the U.S. It moved to its former home at the Michigan State Fairgrounds on Woodward Avenue in 1905. Unfortunately, the fair was canceled in 2009 due to lack of funding.

In 2012, the fair was again celebrated in Novi, Michigan and is now in its second year this Labor Day weekend. According to the Michigan State Fair website, the fair does not receive state aid and is privately sponsored by the Fifth Third Bank Michigan State Fair.

  • Time: Friday, Saturday and Sunday: 10:00 am to 11:00 pm o Monday: 10:00 am to 8:00 pm

Our hometown Shrine Circus will be performing all weekend. Shows are daily at 12 pm, 2:30 pm, 5 pm and 7:30 pm.

This year the circus will also include the World Famous Wallendars. The Wallendars are a famous family circus and some may say the most famous family in history. The Wallendar family has not been back to the Michigan State Fair since 1962 when during their seven-person chair pyramid, one man wavered and the pyramid collapsed. Three of the seven fell to the ground killing one and injuring 2 others.

This year, the famed circus family will return for the first time since that tragedy. Rick Wallenda, the eldest grandson of the founders, says his “family is honored to be returning the Michigan and looking very forward to introducing our new troupe to all at the Michigan State Fair.”

5 Ways to Harness the Power of the Internet to Sell a House

by The Jamey Kramer Group
5 Ways to Harness the Power of the Internet to Sell a House

Are you trying to sell your home in a buyer’s market?

Is your realtor utilizing the Internet?

There is something about a soothing rainstorm after a heat wave that is comforting, especially when you have a big cup of good coffee in you hands. Today, here in Northville, Michigan, is one of those beautiful rainy days. It is the kind that inspires you to leave your windows open and listen.

It has occurred to me that it is possible that not everyone is benefiting from utilizing the Internet to help sell their home as they should. According to Readers Digest,

"92% of home buyers start their house hunt online.
 

Before they even decide to step in your door, your future buyer is already doing their research. They are looking at pictures of your house and reading the descriptions of its amenities online. When they do finally decide to step in your door, they already know that your home has what they are looking for.

Using the Internet to market your home cannot be ignored in today’s housing market. We would like to share 5 ways to harness the Internet to sell your home that you should know.

  1. Choose an Internet Savvy Real Estate Agent

    Your real estate agent has even more access to Internet marketing for your home than you can imagine. One of the scarier things about using the Internet to market your home is, if you do it on your own, the general public knows where you live and what your home looks like.

    When your real estate agent markets your house on the Internet, your home is published without infringing on your privacy. The house is still out there, but your name is not attached to it publicly.

     
  2. Make Sure That Your Realtor Uses Online Multi Listings

    Be certain that your realtor is not only using online multi listing services, but that it includes,
    • High quality photos.
    • Multiple photos of both the interior and exterior.
    • Complete details of your home’s amenities.
  3. Social Media

    Don’t be afraid to allow your agent to post pictures and even tours of your home on their Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus and YouTube accounts. Your potential buyers are most likely using social media.

     
  4. Realtor’s Website

    Your agent’s website is another great Internet tool. Your realtor’s website should be driving traffic and searches every day. Chances are that your potential buyers are viewing your agent’s listings to look for their future homes.

     
  5. Work With An Experienced and Knowledgeable Agent

    You don’t need to hear this from us. Here is what Readers Digest has to say about using an experienced and knowledgeable agent,

     
    "If you find an experienced real estate agent to list your home, who has a successful track record of selling homes in your area, listen to their recommendations! Find an agent you trust and follow their advice as often as you can. "
     

If you have any questions on how we can help to harness the power Internet to sell your home, please call our office at 248-348-7200.

5 Tips to Negotiating the Sale Price for Your Home

by The Jamey Kramer Group

Are you looking to get the most money for the sale of your home?

5 Tips to Negotiating the Sale Price for Your Home

Today, we are looking at 5 tips on negotiating the best price for your home. Negotiating is one of those things that you either love or you hate it. With these tips, you will be on your way to the price you want to get for the sale of your house.

  1. Know The Market

    The first step to negotiating the sale price of your home is to know the market. Is it a buyer’s market or is it a seller’s market? One of the best ways to figure out the market is to look around at the homes that are similar to yours and have been sold in your area.

    When you have found a few homes that have sold, take a look at what they were sold for. This is going to give you a good idea of what you can get for your home.

     
  2. Hire an Experienced Real Estate Agent

    Back in April, Fox Business published an article about negotiating the sale price of your first home. One of the ways that the article stated for getting the best price possible is to hire a good real estate agent. Here is what the article had to say about it,

     
    "Once you find someone you trust, listen to the advice you get. Your agent will explain how to maximize home value -- and that's why you hired that person.”
     
  3. Staging, Staging, and Staging

    We’ve shared before about the benefits and importance of staging your home. What we mean by staging is doing simple, but effective things so that when a prospective buyer walks into your home, they can easily picture themselves living in it.

    Staging does not have to be expensive. Here are some cost effective staging tips,

     
    • Update lighting fixtures
    • Throw a fresh new coat of paint up
    • Take down personal photos
    • Clean up the yard
  4. Personalize It

    This is another great suggestion from the Fox Business article. The article reminds us that this is not a company merger, but rather the sale of something important from one family to another. Fox Business suggests two ideas to accomplish this:

     
    1. Send a personal note, maybe even a handwritten note to the counter offer that says something like, “this has been a wonderful home and here is why this home has treated us so well”.
    2. The second suggestion is an example. One seller found out the potentials buyers loved to play golf. The seller sweetened the deal by offering to pay the country club’s initial fee.
    The important thing to remember is selling your home isn’t about going to war. Instead, share with the potential buyer why this home has been so wonderful for you and how you hope it is the same for them.
     
  5. Stay Above the Drama

    The fourth point brings us perfectly into the fifth point. If the buyer presents you with a low offer, stay above the drama and don’t allow yourself to get angry. An emotional response is seldom productive.

    When a low offer comes in, take a deep breath and propose your counter offer. You don’t ever have to take that first offer, but you don’t want to ignore it either.

These 5 tips on negotiating the sale of your home should prove as comprehensive strategies to help you maximize the selling price. It is never easy to sell your home and is often nerve wracking. You do not have to do this on your own. Please call my office. We would love to help you move forward.
