Low Housing Inventory requires Creative Thinking

The Spring housing market is off to a bit of a slow start, thanks to an extremely low inventory of homes for sale.  Listings are starting to trickle onto the market, but some Realtors are struggling to find homes for their ready, willing, and able buyers. 

One way to make a match in this tough market is to have an open mind about what you hope to live in -vs- what is currently on the market.

If you need an amazing contractor to help transform an ordinary home in the extraordinary home of your dreams, I can help you with that.  My book of names includes talented architects, builders and designers. 

Open your mind to the possibilities……let's see what we can find.

Cost -vs- Value on Home Remodeling

Get started on those home repairs, knowing what type of return they’ll have when selling your house.

From a minor kitchen remodel & cabinet re-facing -vs- major kitchen with new cabinets, and from attics to basements, this report is a useful guide explaining what you can expect to recoup during your home sale.  If spiffing up your house will help you to enjoy it while you’re living there AND you get a 91.5% return on your expense, why not call the contractor?

Also included is a link to the 2011-2012 Remodeling Cost vs. Value Report.  This has national numbers and also drilled-down data for Portland here.

As always, if you have specific questions on what you might do to improve your home for sale, I’d love to come over and take a look around.  And for fun do-it-yourself projects, visit my Pinterest page for my collection of fabulous projects.  Please check back frequently – I add new content weekly.

Front Door Privacy without the use of drapes or blinds

 

It’s pretty inexpensive and easy to apply an opaque film or etched glass to your front door with just a little slit for peeking.  I loved the looks of this on a recent home tour and wanted to share it – and also to remember it for the side panels next to my front door.
