Don’t Do These Home Remodels

I mean of course you can do these home remodels.  Some of these remodels may be just what you need to make your home fit your needs.

But RISMedia House Calls says that these remodels do not add value to your home.   So if you are going to put your home on the market and  inspired by HGTV you  want to make your home more appealing to buyers,


Luxury Room Basketball courts, saunas,  & wine cellars appeal to only certain buyers.

Swimming Pools  Like the luxury room many buyers will not look at a home with a swimming pool because of safety and maintenance issues.


Flashy trendy accents Highly colorful decorative add-ons may not get you the value you think.

Spending More than your neighborhood will support You may want to add some great features and more square feet to your home but look around.  You don’t want to be the most expensive home in the neighborhood.


I have worked with many buyers and am happy to pass on what I have learned from them.  Just give me a call to set up an appointment for you to visit your home for suggestions.


A Great Time to be a Home Seller

It has been awhile since I have talked about the absorption rate so I thought I would share this graph with you from the Ozark Gateway MLS.

For those of you who don’t want to know all the math of this interesting statistic let me just tell you that this means our inventory is low and houses are selling fast.

Last year at this time it would have taken 6 months to go through all our home inventory, but right now it would take less than 5 months.

So if you have been thinking about selling and needed a little nudge.  This is your little nudge. Now is a good time to be a home seller and now is a great time to get you home on the market.

Tuxedo Kitchens?

A Tuxedo Kitchen is listed on several sites as a top kitchen trend for 2017.  So what is it?

Tuxedo kitchens cabinets have light colored upper cabinets such as white white combined with darker, even black, lower cabinets.



Do you like the look? And if you are thinking of selling, should you upgrade to this new style?

Give me a call and I can help you figure out what upgrades would get you the most return on your investment.
