buyers: Make Your House Sparkle For Buyers - 12/24/08 04:47 PM
Make Your House Sparkle For Buyers A house that "sparkles" on the surface will sell faster than its shabby neighbor, even though both are structurally well maintained. From experience, REALTORS® also know that a "well-polished" house appeals to more buyers and will sell faster and for a higher price. Additionally, buyers feel more comfortable purchasing a well-cared for home because if what they can see is well maintained, they assume that what they can't see has probably also been well maintained. In readying your house for sale, consider: how much should you spend to prepare your house for sale? exterior and (4 comments)

buyers: Are doing Home Repairs worth the Return? - 11/02/08 07:53 PM
centralCAliving.com By Dian HymerIn a perfect world, houses wouldn't deteriorate over time. In reality, the wear begins as soon as a house is built. Older houses tend to have more maintenance issues. But even new homes can develop problems within a few years if they were poorly constructed.Most homes are inspected for damage caused by wood pests -- such as dry rot, termites, fungus, decay and wood-boring beetles -- before they are sold. Who pays to correct the damage -- buyer or seller -- is often subject to negotiation.In a hot seller's market with a high percentage of multiple offers, buyers (2 comments)
Via James Wexler, Scottsdale AZ Luxury Homes (Coldwell Banker): The new AZ Regional Multiple Listing Service has launched the FlexMLS system which vastly improves the ability to view listing photos and virtual tours. Good Phoenix area Real Estate agents will do well by their clients if they take advantage of this system to layout pictures/virtual tours to get them inside your home. Ultimately, (i think) the goal of MLS Listings is to advertise (quickly) a snapshot of your home so buyers want to go see more for themselves and (4 comments)

buyers: House Hunting with a Well-Trained Eye - 10/27/08 09:51 PM
10 Steps to House Hunting with a Well-Trained Eye It sounds like a great listing - in your price range - in a good neighborhood - with features you're looking for. First impressions mean a lot - but you find the bushes are overgrown, the front hallway is covered with tacky foil wallpaper, the kitchen cabinets are painted dark brown, the living room rug smells musty, and the hardwood floors have black water marks on them. Should you head back out the door? Maybe. But to fully determine whether you should cross this house off of your list you'll need to (2 comments)
