Local Information

Local information for areas that I specialize in.

cropped-newsdrevownedbanner1.jpg

If you’ve lived in your home for 10 years or more, it’s likely outdated with today’s buyers. The truth is, though, you don’t need a massive remodel or renovation to sell your home for top dollar. Actually, smaller updates and repairs tend to have a higher return on your dollar than the bigger ones.

I’ve put together a list of the most effective upgrades you can make to maximize your money when the time comes to sell. These upgrades give you the best chance to get a positive return on the money you put in.

Homes for sale in the best school district in San Diego

I’ve grouped them into two segments – the smaller, quicker fixes that can be done for under $500, and the larger, more substantial ones that can be done, but will cost you a little more than $500.

Remember – these are the kinds of things that will earn you your money back and more when it comes time to sell:

$500 or less:

  1. Bring out a real estate professional (FREE): We’ll tell you exactly where to spend your time and effort to maximize your return.
  2. Deep clean/carpet clean ($200): Professionals will make the house shine, and show buyers that maintenance is important to you.
  3. Fixtures, knobs, pulls, switches, outlet covers ($300): You can modernize your house and make the fixtures uniform throughout; a detail that buyers will notice, and love.
  4. Gardening ($200): Well worth the professional service. Your curb appeal makes the first impression!
  5. Paint ($500): Offers the best return on investment, hands down. Go with soft, neutral colorize to appeal to the most buyers possible.

$500 and above:

  1. Get rid of popcorn/textured ceilings ($1,500): Instantly brings your home out of the 1980s.
  2. Bathroom upgrade ($2,000): Bathrooms are small, but they sell homes. Since they are small, you can paint, replace your vanity, get new faucets and figures, and sometimes even replace the tile for under $2,000. Other options include reglazing the tub, replacing the mirror, or adding a towel warmer.
  3. Kitchen upgrade ($3,000): Kitchens also sell homes, and you can upgrade without going overboard. Choose one or two key features to update, like a new stainless steel fridge, refinishing wood floors, replacing tile, or refacing cabinets.

All these upgrades are easy value adds, but the value of each one depends on your unique situation and what buyers are looking for in your area.

To truly get the best idea of where to spend the smart money that will net you even more money when you sell, bring out a real estate professional for an expert plan. I’d love to share my expertise in the market with you and help you find the best places to make inexpensive repairs. Give me a call, send a text or send an email – let’s talk soon!

March by the Numbers

New home sales continued to turn in disappointing performance, while lay-offs were at historic lows, and incomes were on the rise.

New Home Sales

New home sales took a plunge in March, with completed transactions of new, single-family homes dropping 1.5 percent to an annual rate of 511,000, according to a joint report from the Census Bureau and the Department of Housing and Urban Development. That said, compared annually, March’s new home sales marked a 5.4 percent increase over March 2015’s rate of 485,000.

Looking at price and supply, the median sales price of new homes sold in March was $288,000, and the average sales price was $356,200. The estimated number of new homes for sale at the end of March totaled 246,000, which represented a 5.8-month supply of homes at March’s sales rate.

The big hope was that seasonal sales increases will help turn around new home sales’ recent disappointments.

“While new home sales have lost some luster in recent months, we believe they will re-accelerate as we head into [the] spring season,” noted Gregory Daco, head of U.S. macroeconomics at Oxford Economics, in a public statement.

Initial Jobless Claims

Lay-offs ticked up, but remained at lows not seen since the 1970s. First-time claims for unemployment benefits filed by the newly unemployed during the week ending April 23 hit 257,000, a gain of 9,000 claims over the preceding week’s level of 248,000, the Employment and Training Administration reported. This marked the 60th straight week of initial claims below 300,000 — a level that economists associate with a growing job market — which is the longest streak at that level since 1973.

The four-week moving average — which is regarded as a more reliable measure of job losses — dropped to 256,000, a decline of 4,750 claims from the previous week’s average of 260,750 claims.

“We’re seeing things in the labor market hold up well,” Wells Fargo Securities LLC Economist Sarah House told Bloomberg. “Businesses are feeling pretty comfortable with where the economy is going, so they don’t feel like they have to make those cuts.”

Homes under $350,000

Incomes and Spending

Personal incomes saw welcome news in March: a 0.4 percent increase to $57.4 billion for the month, with disposable personal income (DPI; income after taxes) also growing 0.4 percent to $50.4 billion, according to last week’s report from the Bureau of Economic Analysis.

Personal consumption expenditures (PCE) grew 0.1 percent to hit $12.8 billion. Personal outlays — which combine PCE, personal interest payments, and personal current transfer payments — grew $11.2 billion in March.

Wages and salaries rose to $29.2 billion in March, with private wages and salaries growing $26.3 billion. Supplements to wages and salaries grew by $5.4 billion in March.

Personal saving — which is DPI less personal outlays — grew to $735.5 billion in March, with the personal saving rate — which describes personal saving as a percentage of DPI — increased to 5.4 percent. This week we can expect:

  • Monday — Construction spending for March from the Census Bureau.
  • Tuesday — Car and truck sales for April from the auto makers.
  • Wednesday — First quarter productivity from the Bureau of Labor Statistics; March factory orders from the Census Bureau.
  • Thursday — Initial jobless claims for last week from the Employment and Training Administration.
  • Friday — March consumer credit from the Federal Reserve; April payrolls, unemployment, average workweek and hourly earnings from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
