Looking for ways to add a quick pop of color?  Check out these ideas:

1.  Choose your favorite.  Take a look around and choose your favorite fabric of pattern already in the room.  Find the dominate color in that pattern and then add 5-10 accents in the same color around the room.  The amount depends on the size of the room and the accents you choose.  Keeping all of your accents in the same color scheme will add a pop to the room while still keeping a cohesive feel.

2.  Make seasonal changes.  Adding collections of seasonal decorations is a great way to add color.  Keep them simple and bright and don’t forget to change them out regularly!

3.  Remember the rule.  Designers recommend using the 60-30-10 formula as a guide for adding color to a room.  The rule is that 60% of your room should be the predominate (usually neutral) color, 30% of the room should be your secondary color – typically found in floor and window coverings, and the final 10% should be your accent color.

When you are selling a home there are a lot of details to pay attention to.  Buyers can be picky and many complain about a lot.  But there are several simple aesthetic fixes that can stop buyers from being turned-off from your home.  The first is overgrown and/or dead landscaping.  Pruning and raking only cost a bit of time and can add some serious curb appeal.  The next thing that you can easily fix to appeal to a wider variety of buyers is paint.  Painting is a relatively inexpensive and simple fix to make.  Ugly wallpaper and paneling can also turn-off buyers.  Although it’s more difficult to take care of, replacing unattractive wallpaper with paint will make a huge difference.  If you have options to remove your paneling and paint those walls too, you should take it, although removing paneling can be very tricky, so be sure to consult an expert before you begin any projects.  Although there are many more buyer turn-offs that sellers can easily take care of, the final one I am going to mention are doors.  Make sure all of your doors are on, hung straight, moving freely, and working properly before you begin showing your home.

homestaging

Staging your home is one of the best ways to help it sell.  Staging is about creating a mood giving the illusion that your home is brighter, warmer, and sometimes even larger than it might otherwise seem.  Done correctly, staging helps create an environment that makes potential buyers want to bite the bullet.  Staging is the final stage in prepping your home for sale.  It should follow de-cluttering, cleaning, painting, and making any necessary repairs.  To dress a room you can use a variety of items.  Some popular ones are mirrors, lamps, flowers and plants, area rugs, pillows, throw blankets, baskets, etc.  Most stager recommend using sparse furniture and accenting to make the room’s purpose apparent.  For example, in your kitchen you can rub orange oil into dry cabinets to revive them and make them shine and put out large bowls of bright, polished fruit such as apples and oranges.  It helps your bathroom to add spa baskets with towels tied with ribbon, scented soaps and lotions, etc.  Stagers also recommend that you stage your yard too.  Add plants and flowers as necessary, and remember that potted plants work too.  You can also dress any patio furniture that you have with a fun tablecloth or other bright solution.

GarageOrganization_tip

If you have a garage that is tired and in desperate need of an update.  Try one of these ideas:

1.  Cover the floor.  Paint an epoxy garage floor covering over dirty, old concrete floors.

2.  More Storage.  Add an overhead storage system to add a lot of usefulness to space that would otherwise remain empty.

3.  Keep things handy.  Utilize pegboard for covering at least one full wall so that well-loved tools and equipment can be easily reached and well organized.

toxmystery_bathroom

 

If you’re looking to add value to your bathroom without doing a total remodel, consider some (or all!) of these ideas:

1.  A new sink.  A new sink is a great way to add both form and function to your bathroom.  Sinks can be stylish, whimsical, luxurious, and more.  And there are plenty of affordable options.  Be sure to pay attention to the faucets and handles too… not only do they update your look, those details add value.

2.  Light it up.  Updating your lighting can give your room a whole new feel.  For the bathroom there are many options including task lighting, recessed lighting, and track lighting.  Be sure to consider the function and ambiance that you’re going for.

3.  Update the floor.  Porcelain, ceramic, and natural stone tiles add both value and design to your bathroom.  Using simple designs instead of detailed ones to save even more money.

4.  Shower yourself.  Installing a luxurious shower head will add instant value to your room.  A rain head is a simple update that buyers love.

5.  Give your cabinets some love.  If it’s not in your budget to replace your cabinets, refacing them by replacing just the doors and drawers can give your room a whole new look and a lot of value.  Of course, if that’s not in your budget either, giving your cabinets some TLC in the way of cleaning and a facelift can work wonders too.

When you are in the market for a new home you are prepared to spend a huge chunk of money, but just because the bank offers you a $400,000 mortgage doesn’t mean that it is wise for you to take the full amount.  Generally speaking, you should take at least 20% less than the bank offers you in order to protect your financial security.  By purchasing a home at the very top of your budget, you risk being in a tight financial position for very many years in the future if anything should go wrong.  Additionally, unless you are willing to take a risk, you should always go with a fixed-rate mortgage for a set period of time.  A traditional 15 or 30 year mortgage will protect you against a jump in your monthly payment in the future.  Finally, don’t get caught off guard by unexpected costs.  In addition to the down payment and closing costs be prepared to pay appraisal fees, broker fees, loan application fees, inspection fees, plus ongoing costs like property taxes, homeowner’s insurance, homeowner’s association or condo fees, and hazard/flood insurance in addition to your monthly mortgage payment.  To be best prepared for all of these costs, be sure that you keep a significant portion of cash available rather than using it all toward your down-payment.  This will help insure better financial security for your family and your future.

Today’s Food for thought is from George Washington:  “If freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”  (Fred)  “Another problem is when the press is led to the slaughter by their blind following of left or right addenda; we do not get the facts today-just the ones to prove a point of view.  What happened to reporting the facts and letting us decide the truth for ourselves?”

Fred’s Pick of the Day is MLS # 600357-$599,900.  An Ocean View, DE Waterfront Contemporary with 4 BR, 2.5 BA, a sunroom, numerous upgrades and a floating boat dock on Whites Creek (tidal wetlands).  Call me to see this home at 302 258-6983.

Whether you’re in the market for your first home or your fifth, there are several lessons you can learn from homebuyers before you to help make the process smoother.  For one thing, choose your neighbors carefully.  Just because you’ve had good luck with neighbors in the past, doesn’t mean you always will.  Before you buy a home try to meet the neighbors.  Ask around to see if anybody has animals that cause issues, loud parties, or constant traffic.  The neighbors can be an excellent source of information about the home, history, and most importantly each other and habits of the neighborhood.  Secondly, do not underestimate the unexpected costs of homeownership that creep up.  Spending all of your cash on a down-payment can seem like a good plan, but depleting your emergency fund before you even move in is a terrible mistake, especially since upkeep and maintenance costs never stop.  The best way to prepare for those costs is to keep a reasonable amount of money stowed away in your emergency fund while using the rest for your down-payment.

Off season at the beach can be very relaxing.  If you’re looking for something to do in the Lewes/Rehoboth Beach area, check out the following activities:

1.  See a movie.  Check out Movies at Midway for a popular feature film, or check out rehobothfilm.com for a more artsy choice and schedule of events.

2.  Visit an Art Gallery.  Lewes and Rehoboth are both brimming with art galleries and many of them are open during the off season.  They are definitely worth a look.

3.  Visit Cape Henlopen State Park.  I know I keep going on and on about Cape Henlopen, but it’s seriously worth a visit!  Visit my previous post for more info.

4.  Shopping.  Route 1 through Rehoboth Beach is brimming with outlets that are much more pleasant to shop at when they aren’t filled with beach-going tourists.

5.  Walk on the beach or boardwalk.  Walking on the beach in the winter, when it is all yours to enjoy alone, is a beautiful way to spend an afternoon.  If walking on the sand doesn’t thrill you, you can stroll the Rehoboth Boardwalk instead.  The view is equally lovely.
