2017 Real Estate Trends to Watch Out For...

Many recent articles propose their predictions and trends for the coming year for real estate investors to read and investigate. It is very subjective and the reader should make note of the trends that fit into their individual plans. A recent article in the Huffington Post by Than Merrill of Fortunebuilders discusses 3 Trends in the Real Estate Market for 2017. Construction One notable trend is that the construction of new homes could ease the strain on inventory as people shift from renting to home purchasing. There are many factors that affect this. As millennials are growing in their careers and earning more money, they may make lifestyle choices such as marriage, family and home ownership to round out their futures. They are bringing new money to the market and there will be a variety of new buyers. Some will want homes in brand new modern communities while others may prefer traditional established neighborhoods and school districts. It will depend on the area of the country and individual states. Older established home owners may be reaching retirement age and consider downsizing and moving or renting rather than be burdened with the maintenance of a home.

New Siding to Give Your Home a Refresh...

Many people today are looking to not only pay off their mortgage, but to increase the value of their homes. Increasing the value of the home can be achieved by generating cosmetic fixes. The frame of the house may be fine, and generally what the home needs are exterior and some interior feature replacement. Often times people look at a home and see the fixtures, the details, and the finishes. These details may seem superficial but they are vital to the look and appeal of the home. When one looks at a home from the side of the road they take in the home’s “curb appeal”. If the window frames are looking shabby and rotted away from the wet, and the front door looks weather worn and old, the rest of the house seems to reflect the upkeep of those features. A home with replaced and fresh siding, new windows, and a brand new door reflect that that home has been kept in good condition. There are so many siding options to choose from, depending on the overall look and feel of your home. These exterior projects having already been taken care of also gets the buyer in good confidence that they will not have to do any major cosmetic work to the home’s exterior once they move in. They know that they can move right in and relax, and this makes them feel more eager to buy. Two other aspects of a home’s interior are kitchens and bathrooms. Kitchens and bathrooms sell homes.

The Must Have Tools for Remodeling a Home...

Real estate investors in San Diego can rehab their distressed property just like Than Merrill and team of the popular Flipping San Diego show.

Extension Cords Purchase one 50 ft. and one 25 ft. cord, which is usually sufficient for most jobs. Be sure the gauge on both cords are large enough to handle the amperage of the most powerful tool.
