Smells That Can Make or Break a House Sale

Smells that can make or break a house sale.

Can a smell sell your house? I can honestly say that one of the first things a buyer will say to me after seeing a house in Las Vegas is how it smelled. Did it have a good smell or a bad smell? Was the smell inviting or was it a turnoff? The biggest turnoffs to buyers are the smell of cigarette smoke and pet orders, and some have smelled so bad that clients refuse to walk in the door. It’s like the old saying about how you don’t notice the walls around you turning grey. It’s the same thing here, you get used to it, and however people that are not used to the odors notice it immediately. And it can be quite costly to get the smell out. If pet urine has soaked through the carpet into the pad the only thing you can do is to trash it and re-carpet. How about your drains? Are they smelling up the joint? A quick trip to a hardware store can remedy the drain smell. Read the article at Fox News, (Home-staging tips: Scents and songs may snag you a buyer). But weather your home has good smells or bad smells a little aroma therapy can go a long way in your house. Instead of baking cookies for effect try something simple like orange scent to attract a buyer to your house. If your house has walls made from drywall don’t use a pine scent, it doesn’t go with the house. Try using scented candles. Although if you’re a foodie like me, the smell of cookies baking wins out every time.

Top 7 Tips for Bathroom Renovations

Top 7 Tips for Bathroom Renovations.

Bathrooms are often a top priority for a home renovation, when it comes time to resell, a bathroom can make or break a deal. In an older house a new bathroom can be a sign of the property's overall condition and is a load off the buyer's mind. A bathroom that needs renovation tells a buyer that perhaps the plumbing needs updating as well and may trigger a money-pit anxiety. So without further ado here is the Top 7 Tips for Bathroom Renovations. 

1. Install a double sink. Not only is it a timesaver it's a huge selling point for buyers.

2. Wainscoting is a timeless look that is still trending . It can have the illusion of making the ceilings appear higher. For the master bath, a tile or bead board wainscot adds a polished and upgraded look, but it is also a practical option for kids. All it takes is a quick wipe to do away with bathtub suds and errant blobs of toothpaste.

3. A white or neutral bath has the clean and updated look that most buyers want, especially for a master bath including Calacatta or Carrera, subway tile, and white cabinets. A subtle blue wall color, tile accent, or painted cabinetry creates a distinctive look without being too personal. Buyers are more comfortable with a more modern or non traditional look and the addition of a bold color or wallpaper in a second or third bathroom.

4. If plumbing fixtures are the bathroom's bling, Waterworks is the Tiffany of the restroom world. Sought after brands include Waterworks, Kallista and Rohl are well-regarded companies on the higher end, while Kohler and Restoration Hardware are great options for a slightly tighter budget. Brand names aside, transitional silhouettes in polished nickel make for a current look and if space allows a widespread three-hole lavatory faucet is a foolproof style.

5. For the best seat in the house buyers look for simple white toilets by Kohler, Toto, and American Standard. Steer clear of high-tech toilets that may intimidate buyers.

6. Gadgets are rarely on a buyer's make or break list but buyers do get excited about a super tricked-out bathroom. Features like a bathroom audio system, built-in shower seats, and floors with radiant heat. Kohler’s DTV shower is a head-turner in the higher-end market. Its water pressure and temperature controls can be found on an LCD screen. 

7. When it comes to bathing bigger is better. Walk-in showers are widely popular while oversize bathtubs are also sought after. Clients gravitate toward large shower heads like a rain shower but they must be in proportion to the shower itself. For the bathtub a simple white model with clean lines is the way to go for an updated look. If budget and space allow for a separate tub a master bathroom looks fully upgraded with a freestanding or inset style. In an Condo/Townhome setting where bathrooms are small and limited it's tempting to remove the bath in favor of a large walk-in. Be careful, the lack of a tub may be a deal-breaker for buyers with young children. Hand showers are also a great add-on for children and pets. 

It's these types of bathroom upgrades that add value to your house as well as bring in multiple bids.

Flood Insurance Legislation Promises Flexibility for Consumers

WASHINGTON (April 28, 2016) — Property owners who opt to purchase flood insurance in the private market rather than through the National Flood Insurance Program may do so under current rules, but they risk paying higher rates if they return to the NFIP. H.R. 2901, the "Flood Insurance Market Parity and Modernization Act," passed the U.S. House of Representatives today by a vote of 419-0 and seeks to alleviate that concern.

The National Association of Realtors® stands firmly behind the effort.
