Shima’s Home Buying Tip

Shima 0 comments 18.03.2022

Getting an offer accepted in todayโ€™s market is quite challenging. Low-interest rates and even lower inventory have resulted in buyers competing against one another to have their offers chosen by sellers.

This is why I advise my clients to request UPFRONT UNDERWRITING by their lender.

Most buyers submit an offer with a Pre-Approval letter only. Though significant, the letter merely indicates that the buyer will be able to qualify for the home. This means there is possibly still a risk in accepting that offer because it will need to still go through underwriting for FULL approval.

My suggestion is to consult with a trusty, knowledgeable and trained individual who is experienced and dedicated to your best interest. Unsure where to start? Send me a D.M. and Iโ€™ll happily connect you with my trusted mortgage advisors.

Organizing the Kitchen

Shima 0 comments 18.03.2022

When it comes to organizing a home, itโ€™s important to be realistic about your daily lifestyle vs. what you wish it looked like. For example, many people would love a clutter-free countertop. Donโ€™t we all? Unfortunately, itโ€™s not always possible or realistic. However, there is a multitude of ways to get a โ€œcleanโ€ look, without compromising the functionality of everyday items. Myย #1ย tip is to consider what you use regularly vs. what can be easily taken out when needed. Try to eliminate anything extra and opt for things that are nice to look at. I promise itโ€™s worth it.

What Home Buyers Want- Space!

All that glitters is not always gold!

Thatโ€™s what many home shoppers are finding as they view โ€œbeautifulโ€ kitchens. Instead, theyโ€™re finding that the functionality of a kitchen is far more critical than how it looks.

Mostly because painting a kitchen and adding new cabinetry is far easier than changing its layout.

Some questions to ask yourself if functionality is important to you is:

Is it easy to maneuver in your space when multiple parties are cooking? Is there enough storage space for your items? Do you like the lighting? How about its location in the home?

Some of the most essential features buyers want include a double sink, walk-in pantry, table space for eating, a central island, and even a drinking water filtration system. In addition to EnergyStar appliances.

Feng Shui- Shelving

The kitchen is the heart of the home.

Feng Shui experts believe that kitchens and dining rooms are crucial for maintaining good health. They advise avoiding having a kitchen as a walk-through so that when you are cooking, you are not constantly disturbed by other peopleโ€™s activity directly in your pathway.

Some way to do this is by adding floating shelves near the entrance. Not only does this allow for ample storage in a pretty display, but itโ€™ll keep items often used within reach. These may include but are not limited to, bowls, cups, and snacks.
