5 Homes Boasting a Beautiful Kitchen

In South Florida, it’s almost expected that homeowners will double as entertainers. And with the vibrant mashup of Caribbean, Latin American and European cultures, the best host is likely the one with the best food. Here are five homes that feature a beautiful kitchen, where friends and family can meet, greet and eat. Una Cucina Italiana This enormous, Italian-style kitchen is the perfect match for the chef who loves to cook with wine – and perhaps puts some in the food! Stainless steel appliances are framed with granite counters and backsplash, and every possible inch is used for cabinet space – including the wine rack above the fridge. At this house, there is even a second full kitchen by the salt water pool outside, ready-and-waiting for all the outdoor entertaining a buyer’s heart can handle. For $625,000 you can own this kitchen, along with five beds and four full baths. For more about this house, click here. Spotless Entertainer’s Kitchen The white-on-white of this space leaves a feeling of cleanliness without coming across as cold and sterile.

5 Little Ways To Make A Great First Impression On Buyers

As the old adage goes, first impressions are everything. This applies not only to people, but to real-estate, too. Here are five tips to make sure your property makes the best possible first impression on potential buyers. Make Your Property Smell Like A Home Since smell is one of our most influential, memorable senses, it stands to reason that, soon after seeing a house, you would notice its smell. Imagine walking into a house that smelled like garbage. Now imagine a home that smells fresh and clean, or homey and sweet – which would you likely remember more fondly? Put down the air freshener, though. If the house smells like canned scents, potential buyers might wonder what you’re hiding. Instead, bake cookies and have them available for an open house, or simmer some citrus, cinnamon and cloves on the stove to fill the house with a warm, clean scent. Just don’t forget to do the dishes before you show the property. The First Impression Is Often Online – Take Good Photos OMG Brokers features photos for most of the properties listed on its website – one of the best ways to make your house attractive is to have great photos taken […]

4 Tips for First Time Home Buyers

Being a first time homebuyer can be an incredibly stressful. However, the more you know before venturing into buying property, the better chance you have of coming out on top of the situation. While there is never any way to predict the future, there are always ways to prevent the worst case scenario. The following 4 tips will help you do just that. Map Out Your Monthly Bills Some people venture into house buying thinking, “Ok, we make $3,000/month. All of our monthly bills come to $1,500, so we can afford a $1,500/month mortgage.” Frankly, this just isn’t smart thinking. In fact, the typically rule of thumb is that you should not spend more than 28% of your monthly income on a mortgage payment. In this situation, 28% of $3,000 is $840. Now realistically speaking, $840 will not get you far, so you may have to roam out of this comfort zone a bit. However, spending 50% of your monthly income (especially when the other 50% is already spoken for) on your mortgage is just not a good long-term plan. If any emergency comes up, you’ll be out-of-luck when it comes to expendable cash. And if you need to incorporate […]

How to Get Top Dollar for Your Home

You already know you should clean like there’s no tomorrow and remove all family photos and other personal items, but if you’re looking to come away from your home sale with wads of cash, there are a few other things you need to consider. 1. Decide whether you really want top dollar That may sound strange. Of course you do! But consider whether the work, expense, and stress are really worth it. If your home needs a lot of work or if you have children or pets, you may be better off settling for a more modest price that will leave you with your sanity intact. Homes that sell for top prices are usually those referred to by Realtors as “cream puffs.” These homes tend to be immaculately clean and orderly, are blessed with updated neutral décor, and boast upgraded materials and fixtures. If your home is less than 10 years old and was built with topnotch materials or is a completely renovated historical treasure, you may already have a cream puff. If not, you may find that creating and maintaining one is more stress and expense than it’s worth. 2. Just because it isn’t a cream puff doesn’t mean […]

Learning about how investing works and determining the best strategy is vital to building wealth. Find out what you can do to become a real master of real estate. Choose Your Mentor Wisely Getting a mentor is one of the easiest ways to learn about the real estate industry. He or she already has the experience and contacts to help you advance.

The Importance of Real Estate Terminology

Whether or not you use a realtor, it is important to know some basic real estate terminology. Having a general knowledge of some of these terms will save you the hassle of trying to filter through the language and guess at what is happening. Guessing what terms mean can lead to fatal flaws when it comes to buying or selling real estate. Some terms can be tricky and guessing wrong could cost you in the future. Usable Square Footage vs. Rentable Square Footage When buying a home or an apartment, you will want to know how much space you will be living in. Therefore, it is important to know the difference between terms associated with it. When you hear what the rentable square footage is, you are not only getting the area for your personal space, but also a portion of the shared space available. If you want to know how much room you are getting to yourself, pay attention to only the usable square footage. Earnest Money & Escape Clause Looking through contracts can be difficult and tiresome and its easy to skim through and skip over them because they are so lengthy and technical. A realtor or a […]

10 Tips to Prepare Your Home for the Real Estate Market

Selling a home can be frustrating or invigorating. Going into the process with a positive attitude helps immensely when it comes to navigating all the work and preparation required. If you put the following tips into action, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how quickly your house will sell. 1. Consider curb appeal. The fact is we all want a home that looks inviting on the outside. Go out and stand near the street and take a long hard look at your home and property. How does it look? Does the home’s exterior appear freshly painted and clean? Is the grass nice and green and mowed? If you have plants and trees, ensure they are trimmed and looking healthy. If your walks and drive-way need sprucing up, power-wash them. Think clean-looking, trimmed, and well-cared-for. 2. Have an inviting front entrance. A front door painted with a “wow” color or showing a lovely stained glass window is the icing on your “cake” of curb appeal. If it’s spring or summer, have a couple of potted plants or a small sculpture near the door. Fall and winter entrance décor might be a season-friendly wreath or other seasonal item of interest. Two or three […]
