Planning Real Estates


Image Source: www.realestatecaribbean.files.wordpress.com
Do you know what happens if you die without a will? The courts will decide who will raise your children, manage your assets, inherit your possessions, and administer your estate. Heirs must usually agree on a court appointed administrator. If some of the heirs are mentally incapacitated, or under age, it gets unbelievably complicated. Add in children and spouses from previous marriages and it can become a seething pot of turmoil for your family.If your second spouse survives you, the children from your first marriage could end up with nothing. The courts may set aside assets to be given to the children when they come of age, that makes it impossible for your spouse to afford your current home or lifestyle.When there is no will and a couple dies together, the state may have to “decide” who died first. If one outlives the other, even by a few minutes, the relatives of the first to die can loose out completely.

Without proper organization your assets could go unnoticed or become lost and loved ones may not benefit from your years of hard work.

One thing you can do that will not cost you much, if anything, is to make your house look homey. What does this mean? Personal touches here and there will make your house look like a home a person, a couple, or a family would be happy living in. Valentines is a great time to add these touches. You can use flowers, cute stuffed toys, and small love notes to show buyers that buying your place would mean a good home for them.

Sell the House Before Foreclosure

Getting your home foreclosured is a depressing moment in your life. You are leaving the memories behind because you were unable to pay the mortgage and debt. However, the worst thing is that you’ll be leaving it with less cash in your wallet.

So if you can’t pay the debt to the lender or mortgagee, the best thing to do is to sell the house before anything happens. This way, you leave with some money in your pocket to start again somewhere.

Here are some reasons why it is better top sell then borrow money to pay a debt:

  • If you sell before foreclosure the sales contract will immediately stop the foreclosure process, since what the lender wants is the money that they have loaned you during your mortgage loan agreement.
  • Another reason to sell before foreclosure is that you could sell your house or your real property for the current market value.
  • Protecting your credit is another reason why you should sell before foreclosure. If you house or your property has been foreclosed surely this will have a big effect on your credit record.
  • When you sell before foreclosure you will not be asked to vacate your previous house immediately, you will be given an ample amount of time to move out.

    Renovations That Would Increase Your House’s Real Estate Value

    Posted by Marie in Information

    Planning to sell your house and want to increase its value? You’ll be surprise how easy it is to increase your house price by doing some renovations. Here are some ideas for renovations.

    Tip #1: If you love to barbecue and have the space outdoors, consider an outdoor kitchen for your next home improvement project. The space requirements for this can be fairly large, but it will add significant value to your home and make your backyard a much more enjoyable place to relax and entertain guests.

    Tip #2: If you have a big backyard, then you should turn a part of it to a beautiful garden. A flower garden can make the yard more beautiful. A vegetable or a fruit garden can provide tasty treats for one to it. Add up some shaped bushes and a time-set sprinkler to make it stand out more. If you can’t afford the expense of professional landscaping, you can buy a timer at your local home improvement store to attach to a hose and sprinkler.

    Tip #3: A basketball court on a portion of one’s property can give it an edge on the real estate market. It will also provide a safe, close, and always open area for any of the people living in the house to play on. Friends and family will always have something to do when visiting as well!

    Definitely consider the suggested renovations to make your house stand out. When it comes time to sell, you will be glad that your house stands out above the rest with the right improvements that will ensure a quick and profitable sale.

    Real Estate Selling Tips

    Posted by Robert in Real Estate, Real Estate Agent, Sales, Tips

    Listing down the real estate properties for sale can be a depressing thing to do. Especially if you’ve been seeing the same property as unsold for the last few months. The list just keeps on getting longer and longer, and you’re wondering why it’s not selling.

    According to Jennifer Allan, real estate broker, author and consultant, here are tips on making sure that what you sell won’t be sitting on the list forever:

  • Price is King. Properties must be priced more aggressively than their competition to even be shown, much result in an offer.
  • Condition is Queen. A home that evokes a negative or even a neutral first impression has little chance of selling.
  • Accessibility rounds out the top three. If a listing is hard to show, regardless of the reason, it will be passed over.

    House for Sale?

    Posted by Lei in Information

    Its been months since you listed your property for sale, you tried everything already like; getting a listing agent, posting your ad through the Internet, by word of mouth, etc. But still you haven’t received any calls yet, you tried to call your agent and asked why then you were not satisfied by his reply.There are some factors that might have affected selling your house, and these are:
    A.)Price-due to recent problems encountered by the Real Estate Industry, prices of homes nowadays are less than the price you actually bought it few years back.Maybe, the price you posted is too high for any buyer to consider.
    B.)location-check if your house is located conveniently than poorly. Buyers will try to find properties that will bring comfort to them and their families.
    C.)condition of your house-is your house on tip-top shape?have you thought of repainting it before putting it on sale?I think you should do it now if ever you haven’t done so.
    D.)And lastly you may want to change your listing agent-when you called your agent and asked for answers, you didn’t liked what he said. Basically, if your agent isn’t cooperative and not that interested anymore in selling your house it’s high time you find another agent who can help you with your dilemma.

    良い芝生は良い家をつくる

    Posted by Lei in Imp @ja

    あなたの家をいますぐ売りたいですか? 買い手をひきつける手があります。

    • 家中を掃除しましょう。 隅々まで整理整頓してください。 一人で全部掃除しなくてもよいように、誰か雇いましょう。
    • 壁紙を取り、家にニュートラルな印象を与えてください。 以前の持ち主に関するものは一切見せないでください。 このほうが、不動産市場で家が魅力的に見えます。
    • ペットの臭いなど無いように、消臭してください。臭いは買い手を遠ざけます。
    • 明るい家の印象を与えるため、自然の光を入れてください。
    • 時間をかけて芝生を手入れしてください。 というのは80%の場合、買い手は物件の前に車を止めたとき、美しい芝生と庭に魅了されるからです。
    • 地域にチラシを配布しましょう。 これが有利に働く場合があります。
      インターネット上で宣伝しましょう。 有料の広告もお薦めします。
