Mistakes That Sellers Make (and how to fix them…)

If you’re thinking of putting your home on the market, there are several common seller pitfalls that you need to steer clear of. The first is pricing your home too high. No matter what you think your house is worth, you need to remember that you are emotionally attached to it in a way that a buyer won’t be. There are many ways to research home values, but remember your home is only worth what a buyer is willing to pay.

If you’re thinking of putting your home on the market, there are several common seller pitfalls that you need to steer clear of.  The first is pricing your home too high.  No matter what you think your house is worth, you need to remember that you are emotionally attached to it in a way that a buyer won’t be.  There are many ways to research home values, but remember your home is only worth what a buyer is willing to pay.  Many homes sit on the market for months, if not longer, because the sellers are holding out for the price they want rather than the one they are likely to get.  Second, avoid doing major renovation before selling.  Most renovation projects don’t bring any return on investment.  Small changes like a fresh coat of paint, updating cabinet and drawer hardware, updating light fixtures, and cleaning up your home’s curb appeal are more likely to make a big impact than a brand new kitchen or bathroom.  Lastly, many sellers hold off and wait until spring to list their homes for sale, but just because spring is historically the busiest time for real estate doesn’t mean that your home won’t sell if you list it at another time.  If you need to sell your home, do so, just be sure to showcase whatever features are most applicable to the given season.  For example, highlight your central air in the summer and your wood burning fireplace in the winter!  Of course, having the right team on your side can help your home sell even faster.  That’s why we’re here!  Give us a call at Cooper Realty Associates today and put us to work for you – 302-644-2266.

Tips for Pricing Your Home Right

If you’re looking to sell your home, setting the right price is probably something that you’ve thought a lot about. Of course, a good real estate agent will be able to help you with this (which is one reason you should call us!), but here are a few other tips while you consider the best price for your home.

If you’re looking to sell your home, setting the right price is probably something that you’ve thought a lot about.  Of course, a good real estate agent will be able to help you with this (which is one reason you should call us!), but here are a few other tips while you consider the best price for your home.  First of all, although it is important to know your competition, remember that current listings haven’t sold.  Your best bet for learning about successful pricing strategies is to check out recent past sales in your area and in homes similar to yours.  Sellers that aren’t in a rush to sell their homes often price higher than sellers who are looking to sell quickly.  Pricing high is not smart, especially in today’s market.  Sellers who price high often have to slash their price in a few weeks or months when their homes have sat with little to no interest.  This strategy leaves sellers chasing the market, which is never good.  Price your home right from the get-go.  Pricing your home low may even work out in your favor, if a bidding war ensues.  Again, consult your agent!  Finally, detaching yourself from your home emotionally will help you.  Think like a buyer, and talk with your agent about trends in the market.  Ask what buyers are looking for and consider your home.  All buyers are likely to find something wrong with your home, but the right price can compel them to overlook the downside and make an offer!

Spotlight on GreenMan Juice Bar and Bistro

Green Man Juice & Bistro is the only restaurant in Rehoboth Beach to offer a full-service juice and smoothie bar. The menu at GreenMan focuses on whole foods and is especially appealing to vegans and vegetarians, although there are plenty of delicious options for any diet! GreenMan is an especially appealing option for breakfast or brunch, which is served until noon daily. Homemade waffles with whipped cream and berries sound delicious to me, or better yet… crème brulee French toast… yum, yum!

5 More Staging Tips

Yesterday I looked at three tips for do-it-yourself staging.  Here are five more expert staging tips!

1.  Group furniture.  It isn’t necessarily true that rooms will feel bigger if all the furniture is pushed against the walls.  Positioning pieces in conversational groups is cozy and creates an obvious pattern of traffic flow.  Creating more user-friendly spaces actually opens the room up, thus creating an illusion and making the room seem larger.

2.  Move things around.  Consider everything you have in your home.  Remember, furniture doesn’t have to stay in the room where it currently resides.  You can move things from the living room into the bedroom or vice versa.  It may be possible to create a whole new environment with a little creative rearranging!

3.  Use good lighting.  Many staging experts recommend 100 watts for every 50 square feet of living space.  For the best lighting each room should utilize overhead and task lighting along with accent lamps on tables or walls.

4.  Trick with paint.  If you have several small, boxy rooms, they will feel bigger if you create a seamless transition by painting them all the same (warm, neutral but not boring!) shade.

5.  Finish projects.  If you have any missing floorboards, cracked tiles, holes in the wall, cracks in the sidewalk, etc. fix them!  It will cost you much less to fix these relatively minor problems than potential buyers might deduct from the price before making an offer, so it’s worth it in the end.

Three Suggestions For Staging Your Home Yourself

If you’re thinking of selling your home, or if your home has been on the market for awhile and is not selling you might want to consider staging it. Staging a home is not just about cleaning. It’s arranging furniture and accessories in a way that offers the illusion that your house is larger, cleaner, warmer, and more inviting that it might be. A lot of people think that it isn’t worth their time or effort to stage their home, but trust me, it really is. Recently, a friend of mine moved half-way across the country. Their home was for sale for months with plenty of interest but no offers. It was on the market for so long that my friend’s husband had to move without her and their kids to start his new job. Finally, they had a professional come in to stage their home. The very next person to see the home bought it… within a week they were under contract!

If you’re thinking of selling your home, or if your home has been on the market for awhile and is not selling you might want to consider staging it.  Staging a home is not just about cleaning.  It’s arranging furniture and accessories in a way that offers the illusion that your house is larger, cleaner, warmer, and more inviting that it might be.  A lot of people think that it isn’t worth their time or effort to stage their home, but trust me, it really is.  Recently, a friend of mine moved half-way across the country.  Their home was for sale for months with plenty of interest but no offers.  It was on the market for so long that my friend’s husband had to move without her and their kids to start his new job.  Finally, they had a professional come in to stage their home.  The very next person to see the home bought it… within a week they were under contract!

Staging your home can help it sell faster and for a higher price than if it sits on the market for months, causing you to lower the price in order to sell.  However, if you’re still not willing to budget for a professional to stage your home, consider these three do-it-yourself tips:

1.  Clear it out.  Most homes are stuffed to the brim with furniture.  Take one larger piece out of each room and rearrange remaining furniture to open up floor space.  If you need to rent a storage unit, do it.

2.  Pack Up.  Box up valuables, personal photos, and extra clutter.  Remove all personal objects so that potential buyers can imagine their own things in the space.  Remove all small appliances, etc. from kitchen counter tops and box them up.  Clean out your cabinets and closets.  Leave only what is absolutely necessary to live with and box up all other serving sets, clothes, cleaning products, etc.  Take half of the books off of all bookshelves.  Remove any personal collections from your walls.  You don’t need to clear out completely (after all, you still need to live there!) but clearing out everything that is not absolutely necessary will give the all-important impression of more space.  And again, take the boxes to storage.

3.  Spruce it up.  Paint, replace worn carpeting, etc.  If you don’t have time to do these relatively quick, inexpensive things, lower the price to make the imperfections of your home seem less important.

Remember, just because you love your home doesn’t mean everyone will.  In order to stage your home well, you need to avoid looking at everything through your own personal lense and use an objective eye.

Today’s food for thought is from Robert Purvis:  “It is a safeguard of the strongest that he lives under a government which is obliged to respect the voice of the weakest.”  “Respect of the weakest is admirable, entitling the weakest only tends to breed complacency and expand its class until it consumes all.”  Fred

Fred’s pick of the day is MLS # 595286.  This 3 BR, 2BA Cape Cod home is in a water access community in Dagsboro, DE and is now only $121,100.  The home has hardwood floors, a gas fireplace, a back deck, a fenced rear yard and a master suite.  Call me at 302 258-6983 to see this home.  Fred

Buyers Are Interested in Foreclosures More Than Ever

In 2009, a survey done by realtor.com showed that only twenty-five percent of potential buyers were interested in foreclosed homes. An updated survey, done this year shows that the number has jumped by forty percent, and that nearly 65% of buyers in the current market would be willing to consider a foreclosed property. In addition, the survey showed that most of the people (over 93%) considering a purchase that had been through the process of foreclosure would be purchasing the home as their main residence as opposed to an investment property.

This rising interest is in part due to the amount of foreclosures on the market.  Because of the attention the foreclosure market has gotten in the past few years and the supply available, purchasing a foreclosed home is a much less intimidating prospect than it once was.

The survey also showed that purchasing a home that has been through the foreclosure process can save a homebuyer between 10-30 percent, and different survey done this year by Lender Processing Services stated that the nation-wide average discount on the price of a foreclosed home is nearly 29% .

Buyers willing to consider REO properties can take advantage of the market to score some great deals.  And according to these surveys, most buyers are willing to consider this prospect.

If you’re a prospective buyer, call Cooper Realty Associates – we are REO specialists, and we’d love to help you through the process of buying your home, whether you’re interested in a foreclosed home or not.  Call us today – 302-629-6693.

Tips for First-Time Homebuyers

You’ve probably heard that there’s never been a better time to buy real estate, and that may be true, but if you’re a first-time home buyer buying a home may not be as easy as it once was. If you’re considering purchasing your first home you should check your credit score several months before you apply for a mortgage. By doing so, you will have time to address and attempt to correct any issues that might arise. You also need to start saving now. It’s best to put down at least twenty percent. If you don’t think you can swing 20%, you should do research into loan programs that will allow you to put down less. A great way to boost your savings is to make a budget, get a notebook, and write down where every penny you spend is going. By cutting back your excess spending you can up your down payment. When you’re ready to get serious about looking at homes be sure to get pre-approved for a mortgage. In addition to all the financial stuff to prepare, be sure to envision the home you dream of. You should make a list of your must haves (as well as your can’t stands!) and figure out what you are willing to compromise on and what you’re not.

Spotlight on Taste of Italy in Rehoboth Beach & Lewes

Yesterday I suggested 5 mid-priced restaurants to try in Rehoboth. Today I want to turn the spotlight on a sixth. Touch of Italy offers specialty cheeses, meats, pasta, and pastries all made fresh. Their hero sandwiches are made to order and get rave reviews. In several places that I checked, Touch of Italy was the highest rated restaurant in Rehoboth Beach and if you’ve ever ordered one of their sandwiches, it’s easy to see why. The Rehoboth location (33A Baltimore Ave.) specializes in carry-out orders, but if you prefer table service you can try their Lewes location (101 2nd Street). Next time you’re in the mood for a delicious sandwich, be sure to check them out!

5 Mid-Priced Restaurants in Rehoboth

It’s no secret that there are tons of restaurants in Rehoboth. In fact, I could probably write about 5 every day and still have plenty to write about, but without further ado here are five mid-priced places worth trying:

It’s no secret that there are tons of restaurants in Rehoboth.  In fact, I could probably write about 5 every day and still have plenty to write about, but without further ado here are five mid-priced places worth trying:

1. The Greene Turtle
Located right on the boardwalk (101 S. Boardwalk) diners at The Greene Turtle experience amazing views of the beach and boardwalk while enjoying their meals. Open from 11am-9pm during the week and 11am-11pm on Friday and Saturday, The Greene Turtle has a wide selection of food and drink, most of which are reasonably priced.  What the menu lacks in ingenuity (it is a chain restaurant, after all) it more than makes up for with atmosphere and location.  I highly recommend you check it out!

2.  Obie’s By The Sea
Obie’s is a local favorite right along the boardwalk (Boardwalk & Olive Ave.) that offers casual indoor and outdoor dining.  Obie’s has amazing views of the dunes and ocean which are definitely enjoyable.  The food is classic, American fare and some seafood favorites!

3.  Iguana Grill
Located just over a block from the beach at 52 Baltimore Ave, the Iguana Grill offers delicious Tex/Mex favorites, some with a seafood twist.  They are open for lunch and dinner throughout the season (April-October).  In addition to yummy food, if you’re looking for a great happy hour, you might want to check it out.

4.  Hobos
Right next store to Iguana Grill you can check out Hobos Restaurant and Bar.  Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner Hobos has been described as eco-global fusion.  The food is unique and the focus is on organic, locally grown products.  Featuring custom menus for vegetarians, vegans, and others, Hobos is definitely worth a try, even if it isn’t destined to become your new favorite.  And who knows, maybe it will be your new fave!

5.  Rigby’s Bar & Grill
Located right on Rehoboth Ave. (404 Rehoboth Ave.) Rigby’s focuses on fresh, local ingredients.  With a wide variety of choices, Rigby’s is open for dinner and is a great choice for late-night dining on the Avenue.  Rigby’s also offers brunch on Sunday.  Dining in the outdoor patio is a great experience, and if you’re looking for a restaurant that will welcome your beloved pooch, then Rigby’s is your place.

Thinking of buying or selling a home in Rehoboth Beach or elsewhere in Sussex County?  Give us a call at Cooper Realty Associates and put us to work for you – 302-644-2266!

Today’s food for thought is from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow:  “It takes less time to do a thing right, than it does to explain why you did it wrong.”  “Doing things right is more difficult than you think, patience, patience, patience!”  Fred

Fred’s pick of the day is MLS # 597048.  A nice 4 BR, 2BA Beach Home on the north end of Slaughter Beach, DE, overlooks the Delaware Bay on a 50’ x 387’ lot.  This is a bank owned property and is now only $399,900.  Call me @ 302 258-6983 to see this property.  Fred
