Minor or major, remodels always tend to take on a life of their own. While they’re normally categorized by a few bumps in the road, remodels are also surrounded by excitement and anticipation. Don’t let impatience get the best of you, though. Once everything feels done, it’s smart to go through a checklist to bring closure to the project. To make sure everything that you’ve worked hard for and invested in is just right, take a look at this checklist, published by Houzz. See the extended and original version for more details.

1. Keep the old stuff. You may want to return to original fixtures or materials down the road, or a future home buyer may be curious about the originals.

2. Make sure everything works. Flip switches and run faucets before the professionals are gone.

3. Send in warranty cards. Did your appliances come with a warranty? Make sure you register it or send in the warranty card to make sure you’re covered.

4. Update your homeowner’s insurance policy. Realistically, bad things happen. Contact your insurance agency and get protected, just in case.

5. Open every cabinet, drawer, and door. Is everything level? Is the hardware centered? Test it all, because it’s easier to fix it sooner rather than later.

6. Learn about proper maintenance. You just spent money on new items. Get educated on how to take care of them so they have the best chance of the longest life in your new space.

7. Keep all extra materials. Repairs and replacements could be possible a few years after your remodel. Get hold of those extra materials so that you can save time and money later on.

8. Save and label paint. This is one of the easiest and most "life-saving" tips. The need for touch-ups can’t be avoided, and matching paint can be frustrating. Grab your sharpie and label paint cans with the paint’s brand, name, and the room in which it is used. If you don’t have leftover cans, get sample color chips from your home improvement store and keep them in a binder.

9. Take care of the legal stuff. Fill out and sign any forms that your city or town requires to avoid problems in the future. You want to make sure all the work done in your home is above board, whether it’s your forever home or you plan to sell.

10. Keep all of your reno info in one place. Dedicate a box or drawer to all of your receipts, memos, fabric samples, documents, etc. that come with doing a remodel. You’ll be glad you did.

The #1 Reason You Should Sell Now


 Good Advise from KCM Blog!

Home For Sale Sign in Front of New HouseThe price of any item (including residential real estate) is determined by ‘supply and demand’. If many people are looking to buy an item and the supply of that item is limited, the price of that item increases.
According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the supply of homes for sale  dramatically increases every spring. Putting your home on the market now instead of waiting for the increased competition of the spring might make a lot of sense.
Buyers in the market during the winter months are truly motivated purchasers. They want to buy now. With limited inventory available in most markets currently, a seller will be in a great position to negotiate.
