Weichert Insight

 Valuable information for buyers and sellers.

 

Have you heard of nose-blindness? Being nose-blind means that even though everyone’s place has a smell, people become gradually acclimated to the smells of their home, car or belongings and do not notice them. Guests, however, do and that’s important when your home is on the market and first impressions count.

According to an article on HouseLogic.com, here are three of the most common nose blindness causes and how to eliminate these smells from your home:

  • Pets: If you have a pet, there is a pretty good chance your house will smell like it. The best ways to keep the odor to a minimum are to bathe and groom your pet regularly, vacuum often and use baking soda on carpets, and clean the cushions, blankets and beds where pets rest at least weekly.
  • Basements: Mildew is common in basements and can cause a musty odor, so be sure to visually inspect for grey or white splotches that indicate mildew. Mildew can be scrubbed away with a mixture of one part bleach to four parts water. To prevent it from returning, run a dehumidifier and/or deodorize with bowls of vinegar, baking soda or cat litter.
  • Refrigerators: Bits of food remain in your fridge, even after you finish or throw away the item. You might not notice the odor, but ice that tastes funny or food morsels accumulating on refrigerator or freezer shelves are a stinky sign. While a big job, the best way to eliminate odor is to unplug and empty the fridge and freezer for a thorough cleaning with hot water and baking soda. Afterward, wipe it down with vinegar and leave the door open for a few days.

Cost vs Value

 Valuable information for buyers and sellers.

 

Remodeling magazine released its annual “Cost vs. Value Report,” which is based on interviews with real estate professionals throughout the country. It found that the 29 projects in the 2017 report paid back an average of 64.3 cents on the dollar in resale value. Generally speaking, projects that improved curb appeal, such as changes to doors, windows and siding resulted in a higher return on investment than work done inside the home.

Out of the projects surveyed, the only one that returned a higher value than its cost was an attic insulation project with a 107.7% return on investment upon resale. This was followed by a steel entry door replacement (90.7% return) and manufactured stone veneer (89.4%).

On the flip side, the lowest return on investment of all projects was a midrange bathroom addition, with just a 53.8% return. What’s more, not a single kitchen or bathroom remodeling project ranked higher than 17th out of the 29 projects. In fact, on average, the replacement projects in the report recouped a higher return on investment than remodeling projects, earning back 74% and 63.7%, respectively.

Thanksgiving holiday

 Valuable information for buyers and sellers.

 thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a time of gratitude, and having a home in which to seek shelter and comfort is surely on the top of many people’s list of things for which to be thankful. That’s also why it’s important to ensure that your home and the family members who live in it stay safe during Thanksgiving and the upcoming holiday season.

Many homes are host to large family gatherings for the Thanksgiving meal. All of the cooking that happens that day makes it the No. 1 day for home-cooking fires, according to the National Fire Protection Association. If you don’t already have a smoke alarm near the kitchen, install one now. If you do, it’s a good idea to check the batteries to make sure it’s functioning correctly.

Additionally, every kitchen should be equipped with a fire extinguisher, and windows should be opened regularly to ensure carbon monoxide does not build up from the use of natural gas or propane stoves. When cooking, make sure anything that can catch fire is moved away from the stove. The same goes for candles, which should never burn unattended.

Best wishes from all of us at Weichert for a safe, fun and healthy Thanksgiving.
