the temple team: Fall Can Be One Of The Best Times Of Year To Sell Your Home - 09/10/18 08:22 PM
Did You Know That Fall Is One of The BEST Times To Sell Your Home?
Bet you didn't know that!  
 
Most people tend to think of Summer as being the number one time to sell your home but it's not the "Be All End All" time to sell!
 
The Fall is actually a better time because people are usually finished with vacations and the kiddos are back in school so the house stays cleaner and you don't have to worry about prying your children out of bed for early morning showings ... they will be off at school!
 
So if you're thinking of listing … (1 comments)

the temple team: Options For Coming Up With Your Down Payment - 09/05/18 08:07 PM
Calculate how much and how quickly you want to save   Consider the price of the house you can afford and determine 20% of the value. That’s your target. Let’s say it’s $50,000. Divide that number by your time horizon. If you want to buy in five years, divide by five — you’ll need to save $10,000 per year. Divide that number by 12, and you’ll get your target monthly savings goal: $834.
Perhaps you want to buy a home sooner. You can shorten your time horizon by saving more each month if your budget allows.

the temple team: How Do You Know If Your Home Is Priced Right? - 08/28/18 07:36 PM
How do you know if you've priced a home right?
 
It's a delicate situation for sure!   You do everything you know is right ... get your comps and review them with the sellers and based on that information along with the condition of the home, you come up with a price you both agree upon. Not always so easy, but nonetheless it's how it's done. 
It's not Fool Proof!  An experienced agent usually can nail it pretty good, but there are many variables, the most influential being the seller themselves not wanting to hear the truth. Therefore, there may be little or no showings until … (0 comments)

the temple team: Do You Know How The Labor Day Holiday Began? - 08/27/18 07:25 PM
 
We all celebrate the un-official end of Summer with the Labor Day Holiday. It is always celebrated on the first Monday in September and it usually marks the beginning of the school year, and the onset of bonfires, cooler days and cooler nights as well as football games and of course Backyard cookouts and  BBQ's!
 
But .. do you know how it all began?  
 
The official first "Labor Day" was celebrated in 1882 and became an official National Holiday in 1894 and was designed to give the American work force and much needed and guaranteed day off of rest. 
It is usually celebrated with backyard fun, … (2 comments)

the temple team: Think Twice Before You Paint Your House! - 08/26/18 07:35 PM
Unless you are planning on staying in your home FOREVER, it's not a good idea to do anything to the EXTREME!
 
It's best to stay in the neutral color shades and not get too WILD & CRAZY! Although you and your family might just LOVE things that are different, that is just not what sells when it comes to the Real Estate Market.  
 
 
 
 
A lot of times you might think it's an easy thing to fix and just paint over, but it's not that easy for a lot of people to "visualize" it differently or to see their things and themselves living … (1 comments)

the temple team: Kitchen Renovation "Do's & Don't's" - 08/25/18 08:14 PM
Kitchen Renovations Q&A and “Do’s & Don’t’s”
What should you expect to pay?
Kitchen renovations can be quite pricey but if you do your homework you can be well prepared and not “shocked” in the end. Better yet ... you won’t run out of money before the project is completed! 
A basic kitchen renovation can expect to cost you around $55,000 and that is including appliances, lighting, cabinetry, etc... but does NOT include such luxuries as a granite counter top or “commercial grade” appliances.
If you choose the more elaborate and upscale options, you can expect to spend around $107,000 for the update/renovations.

The Importance of a Final Walk Through ...
 
A final walk through of your new home is a way to confirm that the condition of the home is the same or even better as it was on the day that the offer to purchase was signed. The final walk through is always scheduled after the seller has moved out of the property and immediately prior to closing on the home.
 
 
 
Things to consider during this "Walk Through" are ...
Have all of your requested repairs been completed?  Have any areas of the home been damaged when the seller moved out? Are appliances in working condition?  Are … (0 comments)

the temple team: Do You Know What A "CMA" Is? - 08/15/18 07:42 PM
A Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) is a report prepared by a real estate agent comparing your property to similar properties on the market.  Included in the report are homes currently for sale and homes recently sold through the local listings database typically within the past 6 months.  Although it is NOT an appraisal and merely an estimate of value based on features and condition of your home compared to other homes in your area it is still a great way to determine whether now is a good time for you to list your home.

the temple team: Have You Heard About Burying St. Joseph? - 08/14/18 07:59 PM
EVERYONE is CATHOLIC when it's time to sell your home!
According to tradition if you really want to sell your home quickly you should bury a statue of St. Joseph upside down in the yard of your home.  Praying to St. Joseph for a quick sale and burying a statue of him is said to always bring a fast offer on the home. 
The tradition of burying a statue of St. Joseph in the yard of a home that you’re trying to sell goes back thousands of years. 
It is believed that because St. Joseph is the patron saint of home and family if you pray … (3 comments)
