Canadian Thanksgiving

It is Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend. Americans ask what is different about Cdn vs US Thanksgiving. The answer is ‘only the date’. It is a celebration of a good harvest, & all that we have to be thankful for. It’s always the Monday after the first full weekend in Oct. Same food, same family gatherings, except too cold for outdoor dining like here. So Happy Thanksgiving to all our Canadian friends & relatives both here & back in Canada!

Phoenix File: Green energy costs lower

Phoenix file:Green energy costs lower

 
What’s new in GREEN energy?
-Net cost of owning a green home is comparable to– or even cheaper than owning a standard home.
-Month to month, people who live in green homes save money by consuming less energy and less water than standard homes
-Local, state and federal gov’ts increasingly offer tax breaks and other incentives for building certified green homes or adding green features to an existing home
-Green homes use 40% less energy than comparable standard homes
-Fewer natural resources are used in the construction of a green home. Many green building materials have signifcant recycled content.
-Toxin-free building materials help combat indoor air pollution, which can be worse than outdoor pollution and can pose serious health risks.

Mary Maxie’s funny Real Estate stories

 

Mary’s Funny Real Estate Stories

 
Naked real estate stories:

-I showed a house where there was a naked 500lb man watching TV in it. He may have had undershorts on, but there was nothing visible that we could see around the fat rolls. Didn’t stay long at that one.

-I knocked, called out and entered a house with my clients, and spied through the family room window, two good looking young females swimming naked in the pool. I went outside to tell them we were in the house. They were sure embarassed, and scrambled to get their swim suits on.

-I rang, opened the door, and called out, in case someone was home, and a woman who had been showering came out to greet us with just a towel around herself. I did phone ahead, so why was she so surprised to see us?

-There have always been rumors that realtors meet in empty houses when they are having affairs. There were no cars visible out front of this one listing, so my clients and I went in through the unlocked door. We heard strange noises and muffled voices coming from the master bedroom, and so I called out again. A very upset, disheveled, surprised and embarassed couple came out of the bedroom, handed me the lockbox key, and ran out the door to the garage, where they had parked their cars.

-The owners knew we were coming to view the house, so must have wanted us to see them. They were in bed, TV on, middle of the day, and naked, as far as my clients and I could see. We asked if we could wait outside so they could leave, and they said it was quite all right if we toured the house, and they would stay where they were, watching TV.

-My clients and I knocked on the door, and heard footsteps approaching, so I didn’t use the lockbox key. The inner door opened, and a totally naked man answered. We told him we’d be back later, but my clients didn’t want to go back after that.

Phoenix File: List your home with an internet professional

 

Phoenix File: List your home with an internet professional

 
Don’t be afraid to list and sell your home. The interest rates have dropped and buyers have even more reason to buy a home. It is the time to sell if you want to relocate or move to a bigger or smaller home. Many people still are working, have money, and good credit to buy your home. People are still wanting to move here becasue of the house prices, the weather, the amenities. The inventory of homes to sell is very low, and as long as your house is priced properly, it will sell. The houses which are not distressed, (that is, bank owned or short sales) always sell first, but the price has to compete with the distressed sales in your neighborhood.

However, Sellers, you must really WANT to sell. I hear “I’ll sell if I get my price” hundreds of times. I have attended listing appointments where the freeway noise deafened, where the yard looked like Mother Nature had a bad hair day, where the fact that a homeowner ran out of paint and never matched the rest made Andy Warhol’s paintings look tame and were a litter box looked like Mt Everest.

Your price is determined by the market in YOUR area, location, curb appeal, cleanliness, maintenance, & staging of yard and home. Also smells, colors, pets, and the ability of agents to show your home when a buyer wants to view it all have an effect on price. And unfortunately, foreclosures and short sales have a detrimental effect on prices in the area. If you don’t allow a sign, flyers and a lockbox, you are missing major marketing tools. Also, choose a listing realtor who is internet savvy and can market your property effectively on a variety of websites. Nearly 80% of buyers now begin their search on the internet.

When you invite an agent to your home to talk about selling, they will show you different sets of facts & figures to come up with a market price, & then walk you through to consider your home’s interior & exterior, making recommendations to make your home more saleable, or ask you to lower your price. If you don’t believe an agent’s pricing, get an appraisal.

WHAT DO BUYERS LOOKING AT YOUR HOME ALREADY KNOW?When agents represent buyers, the buyers receive a market analysis of the homes they are interested in, plus they know all the other homes available, pending sales, recently sold homes in the area of your location. They know what your home is worth via all the information sources that buyer’s agents have. If the buyer is financing the purchase, the offer is subject to appraisal, so hoping to get thousands more for that built-in BBQ, boulder waterfall or custom faux paint will not work in 98% of cases. Also remember that a Buyer’s Agent is just that, they represent the buyer, (not you). Be nice to them, they’ll likely sell your house for you.

Phoenix Home Sales: Staging works to sell your house

Phoenix Home Sales: Home Staging Works to Sell Your House

 
Home Staging– Great Idea for Selling Your Home
There is a trend in selling homes, called “Home Staging.” What this involves is getting your home ready for prospective buyers by “setting the stage” for viewing. Mary Maxie is an Accredited Home Stager, and will helpyou get your home ready for buyers.

Home stagers may or may not be interior designers or interior RE-designers. They may or may not bring in their own furniture, artwork and accessories, depending on what’s needed in the home. They will re-position furniture, art and accessories, get rid of clutter, arrange everything to maximize the look of spaciousness and light, so that your house looks so good, you may not want to leave!

Home stagers will tell you to remove anything precious, so it won’t be damaged by prospective buyers. They will advise you to remove all family photos. The theory is that if the buyer sees your family in the spaces, he or she won’t be able to visualize their own family in the spaces. They will likely tell you to remove about 25-30% of all furniture in your home, to create the feeling of lots of space in the home. They will tell you how to ready the home for visitors when the realtor calls to say they are on their way. For instance, ensuring all lights are on, cooking odors are absent, etc.

Your home stager is likely your realtor. And it certainly will be if you call me to list your home. I have experience in interior design of model homes, and staging of re-sale homes as well. I will give you a room by room list of the changes needed before the home is listed on MLS. I will tell you if you need paint, cleaning, or any kind of improvement which will help your home sell faster.

I also recommend a pre-listing home inspection. This will pinpoint any problems that a buyer’s home inspector may find, and allow you to make corrections before the deal goes sideways. It also shows prospects that you have confidence in the quality and condition of your home, so they may have the same confidence as a buyer.

Often, as realtors look at comparable listings in an area, there is very little difference in the homes they show their clients. You need to have an edge over the competing homes for sale, and get the buyer to choose your home. That’s where the home stager, and I, as your realtor, come in. If you want more information on home staging, talk to me first about listing your home, when you are ready.

Phoenix Real Estate: Pre-listing home inspection saves headaches

 

Pre-Listing Home Inspections Save Headaches and Money

 
Consider a Pre-Listing Home Inspection
I usually advise all my customers who are listing their home for sale to have a pre-listing home inspection. It costs $300-500.00 depending on the age, size, and amenities of the home, and is well worth the expenditure when you consider the following:

*If you were buying this home, wouldn’t you want to know that the current owner had felt confidant enough in it to have the home inspection done, and then make it available to you before the sale? Sure, the buyer is going to have his/her own home inspector do the inspection also, but it gives a sense of certainty to the buyer that can help them make the decision to buy, if they already know you have taken good care of it. They never get to the stage of having a home inspection if they don’t make an offer that you can accept.
*If the pre-listing inspection finds something serious enough to warrant repair, then it’s a good idea to find it prior to the buyer bringing in their own inspector. Once their inspector finds something wrong, they start to question whether they should buy it at all. I have seen buyers walk away from a deal because of even small things their inspector finds wrong.
*As your realtor, I’d like to know if there is anything wrong with the home before I start marketing it. I feel much more comfortable telling prospective buyers that it’s in tip top shape if it really is in tip top shape.
*So you get a contract on your house, and the buyer brings in his/her own inspector. Some inspectors are so nitpicky that your buyer comes up with a huge list of repairs they want you to make before they’ll go through with the sale. Wouldn’t you want to know from your inspector, which items are important to have tended to, and which are not? And if the list of repairs is small, often the buyer will accept the house as is, instead of asking you to repair everything. You deal from strength in having knowledge of your home’s great and not-so-great features.
*A home which is in tip top shape, can bring a higher price than one which has problems.

Home inspectors in AZ have to pass a rigorous testing process before they are allowed to perform inspections. They have to have errors and omissions insurance, and proof they have conducted inspections in the company of a certified inspector. Do yourself a favor, and order up that pre-listing inspection and save yourself and your realtor possible headaches later

Phoenix Home buyers’ Information: To remodel or not.

Phoenix Home buyers’ information: To Remodel or not to remodel?

 
Is it worth remodeling?

The  Cost Vs. Value survey, conducted by Remodeling Magazine, reports that minor kitchen remodels give the greatest return on investment of the top 20 remodeling projects in the Phoenix metro area– 88%. Although the house will have more curb appeal and may sell faster with a fresh exterior coat of paint, only 60% of the cost will be recouped.
The magazine also conducted a poll of its readers published last Nov. and found some interesting information:
* the three most important features buyers are interested in, are the roof, kitchen and mechanical systems.
* the number one reason people remodel is to meet a desire or need, not the return.
* Most people are not willing to buy a “fixer-upper”, because they don’t want to deal with the hassle of living through a major remodeling– cost is not the biggest issue.

Phoenix Real Estate Report: FBI tackling mortgage fraud

Phoenix Real Estate Report: FBI Tackling Mortgage Fraud

 The FBI is actively searching out mortgage fraud cases across the country. The ease of obtaining mortgages, without proper qualifying has caused muchof the fraud. InArizona, a special unit of the FBI is seeking anonymous tips from realtors, bankers, escrow officers and anyone else who believes there may be fraud involved in a transaction.

The fraud is particularly difficult to unearth, and relatively easy to perpetuate. It is estimated that at least $10 billion in loans were made with fraudulent application data in 2010. Because of the decline in the housing market, there are predictions that there will continue to be new attempts to utilize loopholes in the lending market.

 Frauds usually involve the falsifying of financial information that buyers use to qualify for loans. Included in the schemes are false declarations of income and credit, inflated  or undervalued appraisals, all of which are used by those seeking to get rich quick cutting corners. There are indications that organized crime groups may also be involved in some cases.

 In June 2010, the FBI launched its offensive against mortgage fraud in a initiative code named Operation Stolen Dreams. The highest incidence of fraud, predictably, is in the areas of the country hardest hit by housing problems, includingCalifornia,Florida,New York,Illinois,Nevada,Arizona,Michigan,Texas,Georgia,MarylandandNew Jersey.

Phoenix Real Estate File: Flex Housing

Phoenix Real Estate File: Flex Housing

 
FlexHousing– A New Approach to Construction

How would you like to have a home that adjusts to your changing needs, instead of having to move when you outgrow your present home? Sound ideal? Maybe a new approach to construction called FlexHousing is your answer. FlexHousing focuses on adaptability and accessibility. Designers are looking at housing which can accommodate a broad range of individual needs over time. Accessibility features focus on design requirements which facilitate the lives of persons with disabilities.
There is a wide range of guidelines for the design of the main elements of a dwelling to achieve adaptability and accessibility objectives.These guidelines pertain to entries, circulation spaces, kitchens, bathrooms, living and dining areas, bedrooms, storage spaces, laundry facilities, balconies, doors, windows, electrical outlets and controls, heating and air conditioning. They also pertain to spaces outside the dwelling, including parking areas, walkways, commmunal areas, and yards.

Some areas in flexible design:
-designed to promote social interaction, by supplying a front porch and outdoor courtyard space, to bring residents togther rather than keep them apart.
-designed to accommodate a variety of family types and provide for home office space, bedrooms, a rental suite or garden.
-on-grade access, with no steps to enter the home.

As the population ages, it will not be necessary to move to more accessible housing. Homes will be designed to simultaneously satisfy users with varying disabilities. They will offer on-grade access, with no stairs, open floor plans, adjustable kitchen counters, lever door handles, accordion closet doors, adjustable rod and shelf heights, and reinforcing for future installation of a stair lift and grab bars. Strategic use of color, contrasts and changes in texture of ground and wall surfaces serve as visual and tactile cues for persons with sight and cognitive limitations.

More homes will be designed for different family units, including double master suites, more multi-purpose rooms. One such project had several single person units each with one bedroom, one bath, and a bar fridge, hot plate, microwave, small kitchen and TV/Music area. In another area of the house, were a large commercial style kitchen, large dining room and entertainment area, large office area separated by dividers, and fun areas such as a games room. Thus residents could have as much or as little privacy as they wanted.

As there are more single adults, they may wish to live communally, but will want their own bedrooms and bathrooms. As with any housing, the most important issues are still community, flexibility, accessibility, sustainability, home automation and affordability.

Phoenix file: Realtors make money with referrals

Phoenix File: Realtors Make Money with Referrals

Before you sign anything with any realtor, no matter where you are, I’d like you to think about Mary Maxie. I am your friend, colleague, relative or whatever. I make my living by referrals. You can help, no matter where you are or what you are buying or selling.

1. If you want to sell your house outside Arizona, please let me know before you meet with a realtor. I can refer you, even to someone you know, & they will pay me a referral fee. The commission is the same regardless of the referral. I will just get 25-30% of that commission. Realtors do this all the time, so none will be offended. But I need to send them a referral document for signature, so please call me first.

2. If you want to buy a house outside Arizona, see #1.

3. Same thing applies to your kids, relatives, friends, co-workers Please ask them to call me first.

95% of buyers & sellers don’t know who sold them their house in the first place, so do you really have that much need to give them the whole commission? What if you can’t find them? Are you going to call a stranger whose name is on a bus bench? If you call me, I can refer you to someone in my sphere of influence who will serve you well. If you don’t happen to like that person, please let me know & I’ll find someone else.

If you walk into an open house, or see an ad, please tell the realtor that you already have a realtor– Mary Maxie. They won’t bother you any more, or get their hopes up. That includes For Sale By Owner houses, new home builders, and private sales. I can sell you any house in Arizona and/or refer you to any realtor in the world.

I have friends & contacts all over the world. Most seem to think that if they are buying/selling somewhere else, that it won’t make a difference to me, but it will. Please consider Mary Maxie whenever and wherever you buy & sell real estate. Thank you.

Phoenix File: 10 Reasons Why I don’t answer my cell phone

1. I’m with clients & want to give them the same courtesy I do you, by giving them my uninterrupted attention.

2. I’m in the shower or otherwise occupied in the bathroom. Everyone needs private time.

3. I’m asleep. I get to do that sometimes, & most of the time, don’t want to be woken up.

4. I’m at the gym, & don’t want to lose my place in line.

5. I’m already on the phone, & don’t want to keep the person I’m already talking to wait while I answer your call.

6. I’m on the freeway or other busy road, & don’t want to have an accident.

7. I’m in a meeting where they fine us $5.00 if our phone rings during the meeting, & $10.00 if we answer it. It’s annoying to speakers & disrespectful too to answer.

8. I’m in church. They frown on phones ringing during the service.

9. I’m having dinner. There is a ‘no phone answering’ rule at dinner.

10. I’m at the movies, a concert, play, or other thing where rinfing phones are impolite & frowned on.

Please, think about this, and leave me a message which I’ll return as soon as I wake up, stop the car, leave the meeting, finish eating, get out of the shower, or whatever. It won’t take long, or you can text me, or email, & I’ll answer those as well.
