New Years Resolutions for your Home – Part ONE

For many people, the start of the new year is an opportunity to set new goals; a chance to achieve the things that may have overwhelmed them previously. Whether your goals are for your pocketbook, your waistline or your family- they’re all achievable! Make a list, set a plan and hop to it! Below are some of the top resolutions, no matter how cliche, and how they pertain to your home. This year could be the year you not only improve your mind, body and soul… but your HOME! Enjoy these top 5 resolutions, and check back in a few days for the remaining five.

Lose Weight

Fitting into your favorite jeans, or buying a size down is exciting, but in your home, fitting all of your belongings in the space you have is key to pleasant day-to-day living. It doesn’t have to be a long drawn out, over the top project. Break your space out into zones. Perhaps its easiest for you to go room to room. Maybe you prefer to pull anything that doesn’t have a home into a common space and organize it from there. The most effective practice for me is setting locations for everyday items. Office supplies, utility items, craft, miscellaneous can all migrate into designated areas. Streamline your life! Imagine what you could do with an empty shelf in the garage, or how much easier it would be to cook after clearing old items you no longer need or use in the kitchen. You know what you can handle. Set a timeframe, and goals– you can do this!

 

Quit Smoking

Everyone knows it’s a nasty habit, its rough on your body and is proven to shorten your lifespan. In your home, smoking can be interpreted in many ways. Make new, healthy habits in 2017 by designating January as the month you ensure the cleanest air possible inside your home. Check and replace air filters, vacuum out registers, wipe down hard to reach surfaces, and clear your dryer vents. You’ll be shocked by how much dust might be lying around your house. Especially living in Central California with seasonal weather. Another way to protect those in your home would be replacing batteries in your carbon monoxide detectors, using air purification machines and dehumidifiers can also reduce allergens like dust, mildew and mold in your home.

 

Save Money/Get Out of Debt

Your home can be a money pit or you can leverage it to be a worthwhile investment. Understanding your finances is the first step. Know what your limits are and don’t over extend yourself. Some simple steps could free up cash to be put toward your mortgage, or toward various projects to increase your equity. Reevaluate your utilities- has your gas bill jumped? Is your water use out of control? Are you throwing money at landscaping that dies every season? Are you paying for more channels than you could watch in a year? Take stock of your daily habits and examine how you could make changes to put some extra cash in your wallet.

 

Learn a New Language

Learning something new, as challenging as an entire language, can seem daunting. The home-buying process can hurl new words, acronyms and topics that can easily sound like greek at times. An easy way to reduce stress before you start your search, is by reading up on the basics. Get to know financial terms, discover essential steps, and clarify any questions you might have prior to beginning the process. Learning these things before you proceed is a great way to ensure you make educated decisions. Find a book, a blog, a magazine or website that you can relate to, and always, always  make sure it is a reliable source. Some of my top picks are: Forbes  Money  and for real estate RealtorKJ , of course.

 

Get Organized

Don’t worry, we already covered purging your closets and tackling those junk drawers. This topic is dedicated to the organization of everything that goes into your home. Collect all of your utilities, chart them on a calendar (electronically allows you to set reminders), and streamline everything from home maintenance to monthly expenses. Additionally, you will benefit come tax-season! Get rid of those stacks of papers and make your life easier.

 

Implementing these resolutions could allow you to be prepared if you take the leap of listing your home with me Kristen Jurevich, if it sells faster than you anticipate, or if you decide to purchase. Having your life organized, being educated and prepared will make the moving process far easier to handle. I am always available as a resource and am happy to answer any questions, refer you to resources, or help to navigate your next step toward homeownership. I look forward to finding your first home, an additional income property, or your forever home. Give me a call (831) 801-8206 or shoot me an email at KJurevich@gmail.com and let’s resolve to make a move in 2017!

How to Attract Serious Buyers During the Holidays

happy holidays, christmas, kristen, jurevich, snowflake, hollister, ca, california, gilroy, salinas, san jose, bay area, buy, sell, now, real estate, list, marketing, intero, intero real estate,

Kristen Jurevich can market your home to sell, even at the holidays.

The year is quickly coming to a close and many homeowners have placed the idea of listing their home on the backburner. While it may seem prudent to postpone marketing your home until after the New Year, there are some benefits to placing it on the market, or purchasing, now.

Over the holidays, many buyers are busy and don’t have time to be anything other than serious. The tax benefits may not come in time, but with fewer homes available, supply and demand will work in your favor. Interest rates have increased since the Presidential election, and buyers are ready to make home ownership decisions.

As a seller, you can be sure that Kristen will continue to market your home through the right channels, while allowing you to preserve your holidays. Features you can appreciate this time of year include: no “for sale” signs, no lock box, and no open house for either public or Realtors (unless home owner requests otherwise).

Regardless if you’re looking for an upgrade, downsize, or a relocation, Kristen has the insight to ensure your needs are met. Knowing the area, the available inventory and how to get exactly what you’re looking for, she, and Santa can work their hardest to give you a touch of Christmas magic.

Thinking about moving during the holidays but don’t want all the stress? Let Kristen Jurevich with Intero Real Estate Services help you with all your home buying or selling needs. Call today to learn about Kristen’s special holiday marketing program. (831) 801-8206
