4 Interior Design Projects for Staging a Home to Sell Fast

4 Interior Design Projects for Staging a Home to Sell Fast

Many buyers expect that their home will sell just as it is. And although it might sell quickly on its own, it could take a while. One trick of the real estate business is to stage homes before selling. 

 

Staging is the act of creating a beautiful interior space that buyers can picture their own lives in. Usually, most homeowners don’t live in a perfectly staged home because we like our homes to work for us. However, staging a home can help it sell a lot faster. 

 

Don’t know where to start? No worries, here are some interior design projects for staging a home so that it sells fast.  

1. Upgrade the Interior Doors

No one ever thinks of the doors, but they are actually pretty noticeable, just like the walls. Upgrading the interior doors is a simple project that you can do yourself with a little help. 

 

There are several interior door styles and each of them provides a different look. If your home is more rustic, you might choose barn-style doors that slide open and closed. If you have a beach home, you might consider french doors since they provide a light and airy feel. 

 

Regardless, upgrading the interior doors is an impactful interior design project when staging your home. It definitely increases the charm and character of a home. 

2. Swap Out the Flooring

Homebuyers love a home that has new flooring because it means that they can move right in without having to redo the floors first. If your floors are old or damaged, changing out the flooring can be a big sell. You don’t have to choose something expensive, even an affordable option like faux hardwood flooring is a great choice. 

 

Faux hardwood flooring is durable and provides the same great look as real hardwood floors. Some buyers wouldn’t even be able to tell the difference. Other options include tiling or putting in real hardwood floors. Make a big impact with flooring when staging your home. 

3. Remove the Ugly Wallpaper

No one likes to see ugly wallpaper when they walk through a home. That means that removing the ugly wallpaper is a great interior design project to do before selling your home. We know that it can be a pain, but if you follow these instructions, we know you’ll be able to do it! 

How to Remove Wallpaper

  • Start with protection: Protect your electrical outlets, floor, and yourself. Plastic sheeting and painter’s tape work well for the outlets and the floors, but for yourself, you should at least consider some protective eyewear. 

  • Try to pry up the wallpaper by using the edge of a putty knife or scraper. For some, the wallpaper will come off in sheets. For others, you’ll have to try some other techniques.

  • If you’re one of the unlucky ones, use a wallpaper scorer to score the wallpaper, and then mix up a hot water solution of either a 1 to 3 ratio for fabric softener and hot water or a 1 to 2 ratio of household vinegar and hot water. 

  • Then, apply the solution and get to scraping.

  • In the end, don’t forget to remove the electrical outlets (turn off the power first) and remove the wallpaper that may be behind them.

  • That’s it! Clean up and the wallpaper is gone forever! 

 

Did you accidentally damage the drywall or is there still adhesive on there? Let’s take a look at how to repair drywall after removing wallpaper

How to Repair Drywall After Removing Wallpaper

  • Start by getting rid of any adhesive. Wash the walls with a wallpaper paste remover from your local hardware store or use a 1 to 4 ratio of vinegar to water and a rough cloth to scrub them down. For either method, you’ll want to wipe the walls down with clean water and let the wall dry before doing anything else. 

  • You’ll then want to scrape any loose drywall paper. 

  • After the wall is smooth, prime everywhere that the surface drywall paper has come off using shellac or an oil-based primer. This is critical because spackle, paint, and drywall compound are all water-based which means that the paper underneath will wrinkle if you don’t. 

  • Sand the damaged areas of the wall to ensure it is smooth.

  • Fill in any gouges with joint compound. Apply two or three layers and extend the compound inches past the damage so that it will be flush in later sanding processes. 

  • After dry, sand the areas with a 100 grit sandpaper or drywall sanding mesh. 

  • After that, the drywall is repaired and ready for a water-based paint primer. 

 

 

This is a good time to talk about paint colors because of course, you don’t want to leave the wall unpainted.

 

When staging your home for a quick sell, always choose more neutral colors so that the next owners are more likely to love it. Common color choices include shades of gray, beige, and white. 

4. Deep Cleaning for Photos

One of the biggest mistakes of staging a home to sell fast is not cleaning surfaces before taking photos to post. Surfaces like countertops, shelving, floors, cabinets, and furniture all need to be clean. One thing that homeowners always have trouble cleaning is their quartz countertops so let’s go over how to clean those. 

How to Clean Quartz Countertops

There are three main steps to cleaning a quartz countertop. First, wipe with mild dish soap and a soft cleaning rag. Then you’ll want to gently scrape off any food or dried gunk using a putty knife. Be careful because quartz is scratch-resistant but not scratchproof. Finally, use a degreaser approved for use on quartz. You’ll want to stay away from harsh cleaners and bleach. 

 

Clean surfaces in your home will make it look a lot better in photos and for walkthroughs.

4 Trending Remodeling Projects That Boost Property Value

4 Trending Remodeling Projects That Boost Property Value

When it comes to the value of your home, there are a few projects you can do around the residence to help increase the appeal and monetary value. These simple upgrades can mean the difference in finding that perfect buyer or waiting around for longer to sell when you wish. Remodeling projects are fun and exciting when you have the right information to help guide you in the direction of increasing appeal and value.

These remodeling projects below can help you take the home you’re in to the next level. Whether you’re wanting to sell soon or you just want to give the residence a fresh look, check out these options to help you do all that and so much more!

1. Garage Door Replacements

One of the main pieces of the home that can take a beating is the garage door. It is used on a daily basis, can be damaged by severe weather, or other means. It is important to consider a replacement depending on the style, type, and look of the current door. When it comes to garage door replacement costs, it’s important to know what you’re looking at.

The cost to replace your door depends on the style of door you want and installation. There are several types of doors such as aluminum, steel, fiberglass, or faux wood. These can range from as long as $600 upwards of $4,500.  The style of door you choose also impacts the cost. You could be looking at anywhere from a custom door starting at $600 to a Carriage door that could cost upwards of $13,000.

2. Steel Plank Siding

Another trendy project to consider when you want to give your home a facelift Is steel plank siding. This beautiful addition to the outside of your home comes with a variety of benefits to encourage the installation. This type of siding is highly versatile so it will fit well in a variety of settings.

Homeowners also love the fact that this is highly rated for fire safety. The materials utilized are more fire-resistant than traditional types of siding materials. If you live in an area prone to severe weather, this is a great addition as it is a weather-resistant siding.

If you choose this route to go when it comes to siding, you’ll also notice that it is highly consistent with color throughout the entire range of options. You also don’t have to maintain this near as much as traditional wood-style siding. It is a low-maintenance option to keep your home looking great for years to come.

3. Slate Tiled Roof

One of the many ways homeowners are improving their residence today is with a slate tiled roof. This beautiful addition not only helps to keep your home insulated but also increases its value. Homeowners will love the many benefits this type of roofing provides. For starters, it is a composite material that is friendly to the environment. You can truly go green with this type of roof on the home. Another benefit is that this roofing option comes in a variety of colors to fit any décor you already have.

Homeowners also love that this roofing material does not require a special substructure to be put in. If you ever need to get on the roof or have someone do it for you, there’s no worry about the tiles breaking. 

4. Wallpaper

For years wood paneling was the way to go when building homes. However, there are many homeowners who still have paneling that want to modernize the look of the home while increasing the value. One way to do that is with wallpaper over paneling. You can choose from a variety of colors, styles, and designs to help you update the look while keeping the original wood as well.

Doing this on your own may seem like a daunting task. However, it can be done with a little elbow grease and time. You’ll start by preparing and priming the wood. Take out any nails or fill holes that you find in the paneling. Prime the wood with a top-quality primer suitable for installing wallpaper.

Cut the wallpaper to fit the wall you’re working on and attach it with the proper wallpaper tools. Make sure to choose a high-quality wallpaper to cover the paneling securely and give you a smooth finish overall. You’re going to love the life it brings with one simple step.

When it comes to upgrading your home, these current trends are a great way to do just that. Take time to discover the many ideas that could help you to not only bring fresh life to your residence but increase your property value as well. Working with professionals can help you to find the right style you want while reducing the stress of the job itself. You’re sure to love the home you’re in after some of these updates.

How do you become a Real Estate Agent in Texas

Realtor Logo with MLS logo and Equal Housing LogoSo, you think you may want to become a real estate agent.  I get asked quite often about what it takes to become a real estate agent in North Texas. Here is some helpful information about the steps to becoming a REALTOR in Texas. 

 

How do you become a Texas REALTOR?

Step 1
You must take the real estate pre-license classes.  My recommendation is to go through a company that has instructor-led classes (some are on-line as well as in-person).  There are cheaper options that provide on-line self-paced classes, however many people struggle because there is no one to ask when you have a question.  Whatever you do, I recommend taking some sort of "test prep" class before taking the test.

 

Step 2
You need to get fingerprinted and get the FBI background check.  Many times people get this done toward the end of their pre-license education.  You should do this before you actually take the test. 

**Note: If you are concerned that your background check may not be approved, you can file for a "fitness determination" with the Texas Real Estate Commission before you ever start your pre-license education.  That way you can determine that you will be eligible before spending your time and money on the education classes.

 

Step 3
After completing the classes, and passing your background check, you can apply with the Texas Real Estate Commission to get a license.  They will issue you an "inactive" license.

 

Step 4
After you complete the items above,
you must take the Real Estate License Exam.  The test is pretty long and you have to take it at a facility with a proctor.  The test includes both the state and national exam questions. You must have approval from the Texas Real Estate Commission before scheduling your test.

 

Step 5
You need to choose a broker to sponsor you.  Once you have a broker, you can "activate" your license.

 

Step 6
Your broker will help you join the REALTOR Association so that you can start working.

 

How much does it cost to become a Texas REALTOR?

Please note that these estimates are for the North Texas area, prices could be different depending on your location.

Pre-license classes:  $500 - $1000 depending on what education provider you choose.  Most providers have a package of all needed classes at a bundled price.

License fees (test, fingerprints, TREC application):  Approximately $300 - $350 for these items combined.  This is a 1-time cost at sign-up.

REALTOR Association sign-up fee:  $100 - $150 plus pro-rated part of dues shown below

REALTOR Association dues (annually): $450 - $500 REALTOR dues, $450 - $500 MLS dues, $200 - $225 Lockbox Access

Brokerage fees:  Generally, brokerage monthly fees are around $125-225 per month ($1500-2000 per year)

 

What about renewing my Texas real estate license?

Each licensed agent in Texas must renew their license every 2 years.  There are continuing education requirements that must be met before submitting your renewal application to the Texas Real Estate Commission.

Continuing Education Required:
Your first renewal period, you are required to take SAE (Salesperson Apprentice Education). There are specific classes that are required, then you can choose your elective class topics to complete your education.  Please note that SAE classes are always provided as 30-hour classes.  You cannot take multiple shorter classes in lieu of the 30-hour SAE classes.  

For all future license renewals, you will take CE (Continuing Education).  Generally speaking, there are less CE classroom hours required to renew a license than when you took your SAE classes.  There are specific classes that are required, then you can choose your elective class topics to complete your education requirements.

Costs of classes vary (based on subject matter and who the class provider is), plus there is a renewal fee to TREC.  The first 2-year renewal is more expensive than later renewals because you need more education class hours during the first 2 years of your license.

 

I hope this information is helpful to you as you begin your journey to getting a real estate license in Texas.  If you would like more information, or if you would like to learn more about working with our brokerage, please email Melissa Hailey.

Sell Your Vacant Property Faster Using Virtual staging Today!

Sell Your Vacant Property Faster Using Virtual staging Today!

Selling a property lying vacant for a long time is a challenge. Experienced real estate agents know that buyers respond better to occupied homes or properties. A human touch adds to the appeal and character of the listing. On the other hand, empty space can feel unwelcoming and unattractive. 

To overcome this drawback, real estate agents often opt for the staging of vacant properties. Physical staging is an elaborate exercise that calls for furnishing, accessories, décor and property beautification. Often real estate agents end up spending thousands of dollars just for staging an empty house to sell. 

Thanks to the latest technology, sellers can save a lot of time, effort and money by opting for virtual staging. Virtual staging offers fully-furnished photorealistic staging at a fraction of the cost of physical staging. Virtual staging leverages visualization technology to populate furniture, furnishings and décor in photographs of vacant properties for sale. Here’s why this technology could be the key to selling a vacant listing faster – 

  1. Showing Numerous Possibilities

Apart from sharing the original pictures of the house in a vacant state, if you can show multiple possibilities of décor for the vacant listing, it piques your buyer’s interest. For example, one room may be showcased as a guest bedroom, an office room, and a nursery to help the buyer understand the potential of the space. Virtual staging also gives buyers an understanding of the room dimensions.

  1. Customized Staging for Your Audience

Virtual staging allows you to customize the staging according to the tastes and preferences of your audience. In physically staging an empty house, changing the furniture and accessories involves great cost and effort. On the other hand, virtual staging offers complete flexibility and a plethora of themes to choose from. A customized furnishing theme can help your target audience relate to the space and consider the possibilities the property offers.

  1. Unfinished Homes can Appear Complete

Virtual staging makes it possible to make an unfinished home appear complete. You can add flooring, skirting, kitchen décor and even details such as switchboards and lights to showcase the listing. Buyers are reluctant to consider under development properties because it is difficult to judge the space. With virtual staging, you can help them get the right idea about the dimensions of the property and the available space.

  1. Provide Your Prospective Buyers Multiple Virtual Design Options

Virtual staging artists can create various room designs that allow prospective buyers to view the property in a different light. If a staged property’s look and feel don’t resonate with a buyer’s lifestyle, they may give the listing a miss. However, in virtual staging, you can share multiple interior designs for the same property to help your buyers see the versatility and potential of a house. 

  1. One 3D Floor Plan to Showcase the Whole House

Create an appealing 3D floor plan of the vacant listing you are trying to sell. A 3D Floor Plan is a miniature view of a house. It includes all the furniture, fixtures, décor and accessories in the floor plan to give a realistic view of the property. It will help buyers visualize the property better. 3D floor plans are also helpful for online marketing.

  1. Add Virtual Tours to Your Listings

Make your listings more immersive and engaging by including a virtual tour of the property. Designers use 360-degree cameras to create an explorative experience for property buyers. Virtual tours are increasingly gaining popularity in real estate. Virtually staged property tours help buyers gain a better understanding of the listing. Showcasing your property through virtual tours increases the appeal of your listing on email marketing, social media and real estate portals. 

A vacant listing can put your buyers off because it is difficult for them to decide based on an empty space. Revitalize your listing and appeal by using virtual staging to showcase the home. Looking at virtually staged photos of a property can help your buyers make an informed decision. It helps them visualize themselves living in the space they see. Virtual staging is a great place to start engaging your potential buyers, and then you, as real estate agentss, can do the rest.

Quick Tips to Refresh Your Home After the Pandemic (or Anytime)

Quick Tips to Refresh Your Home After the Pandemic (or Anytime)

 

When you are forced to remain at home, it is easy to stop noticing what your surroundings look like. Staring at the same walls every day without reprieve can cause everything to look dull and dreary. Now that you are beginning to emerge from the pandemic, consider refreshing your space. Fortunately, you don't have to break your budget to revive your home.

 

Put Up Wallpaper

Wallpaper has a lot of benefits. It is elegant, attractive, and durable. It is great for covering up all of those little imperfections and is perfect for those who hate to paint. When you think of wallpaper, you might be imagining hours of gluing down messy strips. Luckily, now you have a choice between traditional wallpaper and the new peel-and-stick options.

 

Rather than requiring glue, peel-and-stick wallpaper has a convenient sticky backing for simple, quick installation. If you get tired of this type of wallpaper, you can remove it with ease. If you make a mistake putting it up, you can reposition it. Whichever form of wallpaper you go with, you can have it printed on demand. This lets you select a customized design to fit any space, not to mention your chosen design never goes out of stock.

 

Change Your Lighting

You don't have to go out and buy all new lamps. Simply changing the bulbs can do wonders for your lighting situation. The right choices can make a new home warm and inviting, bringing out colors and making a space look bigger. This impact is particularly important for rooms that you spend a lot of time in. The right lighting can also help improve your mood or make you sleepy when it's time to turn in.

 

You can also rearrange your lighting fixtures to change the look and feel of a room. Light on the room's outer edge makes a room feel bigger, while lamps placed lower than eye level can make the atmosphere more informal and comfortable.

 

Consider Smell

Scientific research shows that adding a scent to your home can trigger memory and change your mood. Smell has a very close association with memories. You can use scent diffusers to call up happy memories when you enter your room. Choose different fragrances depending on what feeling you want to invoke.

 

Add Accents

You don't have to get entirely new furniture to change a room. A throw, blanket, or new decorative pillows can change the look and feel of a space and the furnishings in it. You can switch up the color scheme or just add splashes of color to help refresh an older piece of furniture.

 

Rearrange the Decor

Your furniture can be moved. After you've had a piece in place for a few years, you might not even consider moving it. Shake things up by rearranging your living space. Even if it is just for a little while and you intend to change it back, moving key pieces around can give your home a whole new feel. Don't forget that you don't have to keep everything in the same room. Try migrating your furniture to other places in the house as well.

 

Refreshing your home after you've been stuck at home for a while is a great way to breathe new life into your living area. You can shake things up without breaking the bank with a few key changes like these. And if it’s a fresh start you’re looking for, see how North Texas Real Estate can help. (469) 759-3899

Home: Should I Stay Or Should I Go?

Home: Should I Stay Or Should I Go?

 

Are you trying to decide between staying in your current home or moving into a new one? You are not alone. Whether you’re looking to get out of cramped spaces or we want to be in a different location, the choice isn’t always easy. Sometimes, moving is the right answer, while others it’s staying in your current space that’s the best option.

 

When Moving Makes The Most Sense

 

Moving is a smart choice for many life circumstances. A few of these include if you are getting married and blending existing families. You would not, for example, want to push stepsiblings into a situation where they had to share a bedroom. Similarly, if you are having a new baby, their older sibling may need a bedroom of their own. Talk to your North Texas Top Team agent today for more information on current selling prices in your preferred community.

 

Another attractive reason to move is if you prefer to be in a higher-performing school district. While all public schools monitor teacher qualifications and are obligated to provide certain services, such as academic assistance and reduced lunches, no two districts are alike. Schools and higher-earning areas are more likely to have specialized classes, such as robotics or culinary arts, than those in impoverished neighborhoods.

 

If you need more space, you may have already considered adding a room. However, when you consider that in addition can easily cost $80,000 or more, according to Ownerly, it’s easy to see that moving may be the most economically feasible option. This is especially true if interest rates are lower now than your current mortgage, which helps you keep your monthly payment down.

 

If you have yet to look at loans and repayment terms, there is never a bad time to do your research. And, if you happen to be a veteran, you may find that you qualify for VA loans that can help you afford more home with a lower down payment. Guaranteed Rate explains that veterans may enjoy no down payment loans with better terms (lower interest and APR) than traditional financing. Do keep in mind, however, that a VA loan is only good for primary residences.

 

Stay Put For Now

 

Staying in your current home isn’t always a bad idea. This is especially true if the local market is inflated and if you only require minor modifications to make your home comfortably livable. A few examples of these types of upgrades include new paint, flooring, or kitchen appliances.

 

For those with poor credit, trying to get a home loan might not be wise. This is because lenders base mortgage rates partly on credit score, which Experien explains is typically considered good from the high 600s and up. For the best possible rate, you’ll want an excellent credit rating, which, depending on the type of credit score your lender uses, starts at around 781.

 

When your goal is to build equity, it’s much easier to do that in a home you already own. The exception here is if you are moving to a smaller house and have enough equity to cover the vast majority of your new mortgage.

 

Making the choice to move means considering many factors. Sometimes, the decision is easy, such as when you’re expanding your family or need a better school district. However, you may not want to count out staying in your current home temporarily while you work on your credit or make small modifications that will help you resell value later on while improving your current quality of life.
