SPRUCE UP YOUR OUTDOOR SPACES

 

With the weather cooling down, it’s time to enjoy our beautiful weather once more. It’s the perfect time to spruce up small outdoor spaces so you can enjoy them all winter long.
When working in a small space, you want to draw the eye around the room. Using a color pallet bring cohesion to the space, while adding pops of lively color can help draw your eye around the room. If you aren’t into color pops, multiple textures can help bring variety without overwhelming the space.
The smaller the area, the more precious the floor space. When placing bigger pieces like furniture in your outdoor space, make sure pieces are multipurpose where possible. A bench seat with extra storage or a table with a built-in planter can help make the most of the space.
If the foot print of the room is small, then look up! The floor isn’t the only useful space when you get creative. Utilize vertical planters, such as repurposed shutters, tall tiered containers or wall mounted pots to expand the space upwards. You can also save space on the floor by using a ceiling or overhead beam to hang lights, plants, or décor.
This extension of your home should feel like just that so make sure you infuse your space with the things that make you happy. Take inspiration from anything that can – the décor of your favorite restaurant, the pattern from your favorite outfit, the line of your dream car, the art that your kids make, the color of your dream car… you get the idea.
At the end of the day, clever use of your outdoor space is a great opportunity to expand your home. This is especially useful in a state like ours with almost year-round perfect weather. There are a million ideas out there, so get out there and enjoy that space!

Oro Valley Real Estate Open House Tips

Oro Valley and Real Estate-Buy or Run

When you go to an open house, it’s easy to get caught up in your own world. In fact, the seemingly innocuous chitchat you overhear can help you decide whether to follow through and make an offer—or run. The comments and criticisms you pick up on during an open house can contain nuggets of valuable financial and personal info you can put to use.

Here are some examples.

The owners are flexible on price

Translation: What [the agent] is really saying is that the home can and will be sold for under asking price. If you’re serious about making an offer, use this nugget of info to your advantage. Take a closer look around the property with a critical eye. Do the kitchen appliances need updating? Is the backyard in dire need of landscaping? Now that you know the homeowner’s in a selling mood, you’re in a perfect position to submit a low bid. Any repairs and issues will give you leverage to negotiate.

What’s that smell in the house?

Translation: There might be a big problem. If you overhear visitors discussing a specific issue—say, a damp smell, or maybe evidence of termites —it can certainly be used as leverage when writing an offer, or it may be enough for you to decide you don’t want to take on a potential problem. And if other visitors are talking about it, the problem is probably big enough to cause headaches.

Wow, the sellers are getting out just in time

Translation: The neighborhood could be on the decline. When you go to an open house, you shouldn’t just zero in on the home itself. This is your chance to get a feel for the community. Since open houses tend to attract curious neighbors, they can be the ideal setting for a potential buyer to find out about hot-button issues such as future development, traffic, area crime, or just neighborhood nuisances. If you’re looking for a home in a relatively quiet neighborhood, for instance, you might be grateful to find out now about the new road widening that’s slated to go up a half-mile away.

This price is way too high

Translation: You should work with your agent and research what other homes in the neighborhood are going for. Sure, the price of the home you’re looking at might seem high, but that doesn’t mean it’s not fair market value for the neighborhood. Sometimes a property is priced correctly, but buyers might not realize it. That’s why it’s crucial to check the comps and make sure the house you’re touring lines up. If it still seems high, don’t run yet. You could consider adjusting your bid accordingly.

Great, our couch would fit perfectly in here!

Translation: You have competition. Listen for interest at an open house. Interested home buyers will often travel through the home, slowly and intently, using phrases such as ‘Our living room set would fit perfectly’ or ‘Do you think our bed would look good in this room? These are clear indicators they’re thinking about putting in an offer. And if you can see yourself living in that house, too, you’d better act fast. The worst is losing out on a home because someone got there first.

Hear the words foreclosure or divorce

Translation: The sellers’ misfortune—sad as it may be for them—could work in your favor. If you hear the word foreclosure, you should pay attention. They may be open to selling it for less than they want to, due to time restrictions. Divorce is another word to listen for. If the owners are splitting up and/or need to split their assets, it’s likely that they don’t want to hang onto the home too long because it’s that much longer until they can move on with the rest of their lives.

 

Before jumping to conclusions, do some research. Of course, it’s always a good idea to consider your source. Take everything you hear with a grain of salt. If you’re genuinely concerned, share that info with your agent. That said, don’t discount anything entirely.
