Prepare your home to sell with these fast, low-cost kitchen refresh ideas

December 10, 2019

 | 

It is no surprise the kitchen is most often cited as the room that really sells your home. It’s the most functional space in the house and where we spend a lot of time as a family.

 

Also, kitchen trends and styles go in and out just as fast (often faster) than any other room in the home. So when you plan to list your home for sale, this is where you will want to dedicate your attention.

 

You don’t want buyers to walk into your kitchen and wince at how much work it needs!

 

That being said, renovating the kitchen is an expensive and time consuming task. Thanks to the internet, there is a nearly endless array of quick and inexpensive ideas for giving your kitchen a great facelift.

 

1.) Reface your cabinets. The thought of gutting and replacing cabinets is daunting to say the least but refacing them makes them look like new without making any major changes. You can either replace your cabinet doors, paint them, or remove them altogether for exposed shelving.

 

2.) Add a backsplash. Depending on the décor you are working with now, a simple tile or shiplap backsplash can make all the difference for a home buyer seeking a stylish kitchen. If intimidating visions of mortar and tile grout are dancing in your head, not to worry! There are plenty of beautiful designs that are really easy to install (check out these alternatives at the Home Depot).

 

3.) Install knobs or pulls. Add or upgrade pulls to your drawers and cabinets and your kitchen will instantly look polished and amazing.

The Northeast Florida real estate trends remain positive in October!

November 25, 2019

 | 

The Northeast Florida Association of Realtors market stats for October 2019 show continued strong buyer demand, prices increasing more slowly, and inventory of available homes continuing to decline.

 

There were 3,507 new listings in October which is 2.6% higher than last October and a year over year increase of 0.6%. However, the inventory of homes for sale of 8,807 is down 11.9% from last October.

It is the lowest inventory level since March 2018.

 

A Realtor.com article says, “National listing inventory continued to decline in September, posting a 2.5% year-to-year decrease – a faster rate of decline compared to August’s 1.8% decrease. Driven by strong demand and short supply, entry-level homes priced below $200,000 have been steadily decreasing since May 2014, a trend that continued in September with a yearly decline of 9.8%. Mid-market homes priced between $200,000 and $750,000 – the largest segment of inventory – flatlined in September with 0% growth, and they’re poised for their first decline next month.”

Think all property managers are the same? Here are 6 ways Davidson is different!

November 13, 2019

 | 

When you rent out your home, it can be easy to fall into the idea that all property management companies are essentially the same. They locate and screen tenants, collect rent and handle issues that arise during the lease.

 

 

However, how well property managers juggle these tasks varies widely! Here are six of the many ways your experience with Davidson Property Management (DPM) will be different:

 

1.) Our rental team: Unlike many companies in which property managers show their own properties, our team consists of staffed rental agents that are designated to show the rental properties. This makes it much more accessible to show the property, which makes your home more marketable and gets you a renter more quickly.

 

2.) Higher rental commission: For DPM managed properties, the rent commission is double what most other companies offer. How does this benefit our homeowners? It motivates agents to find great tenants and rent your property faster!

 

3.) 24/7 access: While some property management companies limit response times based on business hours, our team guarantees a timely response no matter the issue or question, and any time day or night.

4 important questions to consider when upsizing your home

November 6, 2019

 | 

At some point in our lives, most of us find the need for more space. The next logical step is to move to a home with more square footage. But there are several important questions that should be addressed before you start looking for a bigger house.

 

Why do I need more room?

 

Whether you are growing by people or acquiring more stuff (or both), your space needs will differ. Many families are growing and looking to accommodate more children. That means you need additional bedrooms, bathrooms, a larger living room and perhaps a larger yard to accommodate a swing set and trampoline.

 

Maybe an elderly family member is moving in or you have frequent guests. In that case, you may want to seek out homes with a separate suite or an apartment above the garage. Have you started a business that requires more space? Plan for another room to accommodate your office or perhaps a larger garage for your new company’s inventory.
