Moving? Be sure to consider a portable storage solution - 04/24/07 09:33 AM
Moving? Be sure to consider a portable storage solution Experts agree that the first order of business in staging a house is to remove the clutter. In fact, sometimes, this can be the most difficult task because clutter accumulates over time. Even though homeowners don't necessarily see what they walk around everyday, prospective homebuyers do and that's a bad thing because the first time a prospective buyer walks through a house they tend to look emotionally, not logically. There's a difference between sprucing up a home and staging it. When you repair a leaky toilet or replace a torn screen; you are (1 comments)

Keep them straight Looking at a bunch of houses? With digital photography making it easy and inexpensive to record images, be sure to take a digital camera along, first taking a picture of the listing sheet so you can remember which pictures go with which home, and then key elements of each home. Work with your REALTOR to make a list of your "must-haves" before you visit the first house. For example, fireplace, master bath, walk-in closet, two (or three) car garage, dining room, open floor plan, eat-in kitchen, screened-in porch, large (or small) yard are typical "must-haves".

Check the zoning, nobody likes surprises. Too often homeowners are horrified to learn that their tranquil neighborhood is being invaded by multi-family housing, a big commercial business, or a 24-hour convenience store. Before you put a bid on a house, go to the town hall, city hall, or county register of records and find out the zoning of all contiguous properties. To get started, ask your REALTOR or visit http://www.metrokc.gov/ddes/gis/zatlas.htm David Edwards REALTOR® Keller Williams Realty Southeast Sound 425-890-8045 E-Mail: email@example.com Website: http://www.davidjedwards.com Blogsite: http://www.davidjedwards.com/renton-info-blog.asp David J Edwards is a full time real estate agent and REALTOR® with Keller Williams specializing in Residential Real Estate for buyers and sellers in (0 comments)

Landscaping: Does it look like a park or a landfill? Landscaping not only includes the grass, bushes and any gardens, but also the hardscape - the sidewalk, deck and/or patio. People are spending more time outdoors now that Spring is upon us and you're likely no different. Landscaping improvements can be costly, but is one area in which homeowners often tackle projects themselves. If you have the time, energy, and expertise you can save money by doing some landscaping improvements. But costs can add up here - be sure to factor that into your decision and/or bid.

What's the condition of the home's exterior? Does it need painting, or is it sided? Does it have painted brick that's peeling? Is the aluminum siding chalking? Improving the exterior can be costly. Check the exterior walls carefully before putting in a bid.

Single Listing Website & Virtual Tours - 04/05/07 09:49 PM
Virtual tours and single listing websites have almost become one-in-the-same but both are still essential marketing tools in a balanced or buyers market. The reason is that virtual tours do not usually support an address based URL and single listing websites do not usually support distribution feeds to sites like Realtor.com, homes.com, homeseekers.com. Thus, I am a fan of using both. If you had to choose? What do you prefer? (5 comments)

Does the basement leak? Basements are not very common in our area but if you've owned a home with a basement and you've been lucky enough to keep it dry, it's hard to imagine the havoc a wet basement can bring to your life. If you've ever lived in a house with a leaky basement or hate the thought of a foot of water surrounding your furnace, you'll likely be sure to check that the basement doesn't leak, or has a system that automatically removes water from it.
