First Impressions can make or break an Open House

The Growing trend in real estate is first showings at open houses.

A lot of real estate agents stress staging a Lowell home to sell and often overlook the importance of curb appeal.

The first thing that potential buyers will see of your Lowell home is a picture online of the front of the house including the landscaping, so make a great first impression by staging your front yard with beautiful outdoor spaces. An investment in landscaping can help sell your Lowell home faster and for more money. There are simple projects that can help you achieve great curb-appeal.

1. Keep the Lawn Well-Manicured

Mow and edge often . Cover bare spots with new seed or fresh sod.

2. Add Fresh Mulch

Add fresh Mulch to flower beds and make sure to pull any weeds.

3. Add Flower Pots Near Your Front Door

A splash of color in the yard is a great way to highlight your Lowell home. If you are looking to sell quickly, it might be too late to do major yard improvements since new flowers and plants will not have adequate time to grow and mature, but a few beautiful pots of flowers strategically placed near your front door can have a similar effect without requiring a lot of time and maintenance.

4. Keep the Walkway clean and clear of debris

Framing the walkway with mulch or flowers provides an extra edge.

5. New House Numbers

Big and Bold house numbers carry a tremendous impact

Take advantage of the HOT! Lowell Real Estate Market

There is a good chance you’ve been hearing about the hot Lowell real estate market. Like many Lowell homeowners you might be considering a move but you’ve been waiting for the right time. As a real estate professional specializing in the Lowell area I’m thrilled to report a positive outlook for those who are thinking about selling.

Below are statistics that indicate it may be a sellers market.

– According to the National Association of Realtors inventory of available homes has decreased 7.1% in the last year. In January of 2017 there was a 3.6 month supply of homes, this is below the 6 month supply that many real estate professionals consider normal.

– The number of homes sold according to the National Associations of Realtors was 15.4% percent higher in last year, this dramatic increase in sales signifies a hot real estate market. Additionally the number of homes for sale during the same time period is 8% lower. Fewer homes for sale generally indicates a sellers market.

– Additionally the National Associations of Realtors reported that single family home prices nationwide have risen 7.1% over the last year.

I am sharing this information with you because inventory in Lowell is low, and I am hearing from agents and prospective buyers that they just can’t find what they are looking for.

Reconsider These Choices When You’re Designing Your Kitchen

The kitchen is one area of the home that sees the most wear and tear. All the water, heat, and food spills add up quickly so it’s important to focus on quality and lasting appeal when you’re choosing materials for a kitchen remodel. Here are a few things you should avoid:

Cheap Laminate Countertops: The bottom rung of laminate is extremely susceptible to wear and tear. It can melt if you forget to place a hot pad under a pan that’s fresh out of the oven and the edges can chip off from repeated exposure to moisture and heat.

Flat Paint: A flat or matte finish is great in rooms with lower traffic, but it’s a bad idea in the kitchen where the walls are regularly exposed to splatters and spills. You need paint that can withstand an occasional heavy scrubbing, so opt for gloss or semi-gloss finishes.

Trendy Backsplash: If you watch any home remodeling show, you’ll certainly see kitchens with expensive, elaborate backsplash designs and materials. Those trends can be pricey to pursue and can look dated in a hurry. Subway tile is a cheaper, classic option that you’ll never regret, plus you’ll have more room in your budget to purchase quality materials to be used elsewhere.

Cheap Flooring: Just like the countertops, your kitchen floor needs to be strong enough to take some abuse. Cheap flooring easily scuffs and peels (especially from moisture). Quality flooring is worth the investment.
