Inexpensive Selling Tips to make Your Home Marketable in Katy Dec 2015 and 2016

Inexpensive  Selling Tips to make Your Home Marketable in Katy Dec 2015 and 2016

 

Numerous times during the past years or any given year I have been asked is there anything I can do that is quick and easy and fairly inexpensive to make our home more attractive to potential buyers? The answer is yes and there will be some of these easy suggestions which will entail spending a little money but none of these should require a significant amount of cash. If the expense becomes large in terms of dollars and time then you should consider delaying the listing of your home until you have a professional fix these bigger issues.

 

Easy Selling Tips to make Your Home Marketable in Katy 2015

 

I know virtually every Realtor has their very own list of these types of items. If your Realtor has a different list to follow then listen to your Realtor's advice unless you are totally dissatisfied with this person’s performance and or suggestions.

 

Here is my quick and what I term easy items a seller can fairly easily correct before attempting to list their home:

 

A.   Clean all of your home’s windows inside and out. Clean the screens.

B.   Paint or even touch up the exterior plus fix all damaged screens.

C.   Curb appeal is extremely important all year round. Make sure the front of your home tells everyone .. Wow this place looks wonderful and invites them to come inside to look. Add mulch to your beds and plant colorful flowers. Pull all weeds and get rid of fallen tree limbs . Make sure grass is cut and front yard is very neat.

D.   Clear all dead tree branches from both front, back and sides of the home and remove these from the premises.

E.  Clear out all closets and make space inside. Get rid of stuff blocking entering or leaving the closet. Make sure closet lights and door handles are operational.

F.  Get rid of clutter throughout the home and garage. Rent storage space if necessary or think about a POD. Minimize stuff on the tops of counters.

G.   The old adage less is more theory especially applies to furniture. Place extra furniture in storage , sell it or give it to off the payroll children. The less furniture in a room then the bigger the room usually appears.

H.  Power wash the driveway, sidewalks and patio areas. Remove trash of any kind from driveway and fro0m behind the garage.

I.   Clean all lawn furniture and eliminate clutter from the entire back yard. Throw away all the miscellaneous crap stored in the back of your garage or side of the home

J.  If you own a pool fix all issues and make sure your water is crystal clear and blue in color.

K.  Make sure all doors, locks and windows work very smoothly. repaid if needed.

L. Clean garage and throw away or give away unneeded items. Collect and donate items to Salvation Army,  Goodwill Industries or Katy Christian Ministries or to any charity of your choice.

M.  Closets should have plenty of space between hanging clothes. Store or donate or sell in a garage sale all clothing articles you will never fit into again or are totally out of style! If you have worn something in last 2 years get rid of it.

N.  Make sure all pets such as dogs and cats plus toys are out of the way for any and all visitors.

O.  Eliminate bad odors in the home and stop cooking smelly foods for a while. Clean out the cat litter box and make sure it smells fresh every day.

P.  Repair all wall areas, re-caulk bathrooms, kitchen areas and windows in need.

Q.   Vacuum carpets and or clean the carpets. Consider cleaning the grout if you have tile floors plus clean the tile.

R. Remove excess storage items from attic area and never store flammables in any attic space. I have seen this happen several times!

S. Make sure front door works properly as well as outside lights. Keys should open or lack doors easily.

Home Buyers : Positives and Negatives of Buying a Home

 

When you’re making a big decision like buying a home, people will tell you that you need to be X years old, make Y amount of money, and buy a home in Z location.

As an Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) and Professional Realtor, I have helped many successfully make the transition from renting to buying and can answer any questions that you may have. Contact me at your earliest convenience and lets get started finding you a home in the Katy or surrounding areas..

 

Please read this interesting article which does a good job of covering the renting vs buying a home dilemma.

Almost Wordless Wednesday : Zoo Lights at Houston Zoo

Almost Wordless Wednesday : Zoo Lights at Houston Zoo

 

A few weeks ago on a Sunday evening we attended Zoo Lights at the Houston Zoo  courtesy of David Weekley Homes. It is a special holiday light show with over 2 million lights. We enjoyed seeing all the very pretty light displays. Thank you David Weekley for inviting employees plus family members to this Holiday event. The Zoo was blocked off in most parts and only a small number of animals were available to see. Below are just a few pictures. I know Yolanda has many more pictures.

Zoo Lights lasts until January 9, 2016. It is a fairly easy drive from Katy to the Houston Zoo as long you avoid certain areas and go on weekends. This is excellent family fun and entertainment. Go to theirwebsite for more information.

Journey to Bethlehem Hosted by Current - A Christian Church Katy

Journey to Bethlehem Hosted by Current - A Christian Church Katy  

 

This event sounds very intriguing and something all Christians might want to check out by attending. Current - A Christian Church is performing Journey to Bethlehem on Thursday December 10 from 7 to 9 PM, Friday December 11 from 7 PM till 9 PM; Saturday December 12 from 5 PM till 9 PM and Sunday December 13, 2015 from 5 PM until 8 PM. There will be continuous departures for this Journey. This is the 13TH annual presentation here in Katy.

The Journey is an interactive outdoor and walk-through experience for the entire family. Attendees will step back into time and experience the places, people and circumstances surrounding the birth of Jesus. There are over 200 cast and crew members, live animals and wares. Making the Journey will mean you will encounter Wisemen, Roman Soldiers, Shepherds, Angels and Vendors of the day.  Experience guides will lead attendees down a winding trail through a series of live action scenes. All will be counted in the census but Mary and Joseph will be turned away at the inn. Finally all viewers  will arrive at the simple manger to find Mary and Joseph holding the newborn King Baby Jesus!

 

This year promises to be the biggest and best Journey to Bethlehem. Last year over 7,000 guests were treated to this experience. I will speculate the attendance will be much larger this year. Weather will obviously be very important. Refreshments will be served. This special event and performance is FREE and no registration is needed. The public is invited. Folks are encouraged to invite family, friends and neighbors.  Many families have made this a family tradition.

 

Current- A Christian Church is located at 26600 Westheimer Parkway Katy TX 77494.

 

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah to all.

Grand Lakes Katy TX | Market Report | Year 2014 VS 2013 | 77494

Grand Lakes Katy TX | Market Report | Year 2014 VS 2013 | 77494

 

 

Grand Lakes Katy TX 77494 (450x363).jpg

Inventory levels in South Katy or MLS area 36 were on the very low side for entire  years 2013 and 2014. Recent inventory levels in 2015 have risen but not substantially. Prices during 2014  jumped up versus 2013 rather dramatically which is no surprise to me at all. Builders prices of new homes have risen due to inflation and high demand. Some of the neighborhoods are on the verge of being totally built out which means the builders are running out of lots to build on.  I expect prices to remain high and only go higher during during 2015 unless there is a major shift in interest rates upwards.

 

I wanted to start with the last two year to year comparisons so folks get a feel for the trend of this market. Each home is unique and needs to have a expert such as me do a comparable market analysis to determine a potential selling price range.

 

I have been telling folks for at over 5 years,  eventually prices in South Katy would jump upwards at a high rate. Prices in South Katy for several years have risen but usually at slow even pace in the range of 2-6 % or so. Some neighborhoods actually had a downward movement of prices during 2008 and 2009. Those days I think are gone. I have heard some buyers claim they have read on one of those numerous free websites how prices have decreased in South Katy. Really! Where is that data coming from? Sorry I forgot those sites are usually incorrect with their information. You get what you pay for it. If you are a buyer and you holding out to purchase waiting for a price drop don’t expect to be buying a home until you change your price expectation. Garnd Lakes has been a sellers market for at least 2-3 years now,

 

 

Here are the results for year 2014 VS 2013:

***. Days on Market 11     10     
Sellers Discount from list0.00%     0.00%     
              
              
              

 

Median sales prices were $387,250 for 2014 versus $ 347, 000 during 2013 which equates to a $40,250 increase or 11.6 %. Average prices ( I prefer Median) $410,160 in 2014 versus $369,999   during 2013. The increase is $40,161 or 10.9 %. These are very high levels of increase and as I said above I expect this to continue during 2015 but at a lower rate. The rates of change from 2013 to 2014 are huge in my mind especially for the Katy market.

 

 

 

 

The sold to list price discount  in 2014 was zero  versus  zero in 2013. Sellers obviously were not discounting from list price. Days on the market was 11 days in 2013 and in 2014 fell slightly to 10 days. Mind you this situation existed across almost all of South Katy which encompasses a huge geographical area with numerous neighborhoods.

 

 

 

I will write a separate market report of available homes in Grand Lakes for 2015 and price

 

Trends.

 

 

If you want to buy a home in South Katy the time to take action is right now  before interest rates rise to much higher levels.  .

Grand Lakes Katy TX | Current Market Conditions | 77494 | May 2015

 

I wrote and published a Market report for Grand Lakes Katy TX 77494 where I compared year 2014 to year 2013. This comparison showed a large increase in prices for the Katy market. Katy has seen a low but steady rise in prices for the last 8 or more years. This market report can be found here.

 

Homes in Grand Lakes Katy TX.jpg

 

Current Market Conditions are:

 

Four months 2015 VS Four Months 2014 Grand Lakes Katy TX 77494 Homes Sold Information (2014 is second statistic unless noted otherwise)

 

 Total Home Sales -  23 vs 45  : Decrease of 22 which is a Huge drop!

 

Median Days on Market - 21 days vs 6 days

 

Median price  Price -$317,000 VS $309, 250 increase of $ 7,750 or 2.5 %. Prices still increasing but maybe not for long.

 

 Highest priced home sold for $675,000 in 2015 and $746,500 in 2014,

Lowest priced home was $193,900 2015 while 2014 was $232,000

 

Median Days on the market 21 Days vs 6 days.

 

 

 

Current Available Homes in Grand Lakes:

Median Days on Market - 75 days up a large number of days.  

 

Homes under Contract  22- ranging from $271,000 to $669,950

 

Median Days on Market - 17 days

 

Pending sales is the good news right now with total sales down and current available homes having a  75 median days on the market.

 

Grand Lakes is still in a Sellers market condition. There are no new built homes as the neighborhood was completed back in 2006- 2007. Some homes are sold very quickly and others are now staying on the market for a longer period of time than in recent prior years. If a home is priced properly considering its condition, size, location etc.  it will sell fairly quickly.

April 14, 2015 Job Fair & Career Expo in Houston

April 14, 2015 Job Fair & Career Expo in Houston  

 

NRG Center - Hall E

8400 Kirby Dr.

Houston TX

 

jobfair.jpg

( Note : Above picture courtesy of Bing free to modify, share and use pictures)

Houston Chronicle and Monster.com are sponsoring a free Hire Houston job fair and career expo on Tuesday April 14, 2015. Admission is free and parking is $3. The parking charge at NRG is normally a lot higher. This event will begin 10 AM and last until 3 PM. The fair is being held at NRG Center Hall E and is located at the address shown above.

 

Exhibitors will include a wide range of companies including firms looking for Engineering, Professional, Oil and Gas Professional, Healthcare/Nursing applicants. All Engineering and Oil and Gas candidates need to have two years previous work experience in field  they are applying for and Healthcare/Nursing have to have education or previous work experience in Healthcare or Nursing.

 

Career Advancement seminars include Communication & Leadership, Job Search Strategies, and career counseling covering resumes and other topics will be available to attendees.

 

If you need a job or want to make a change in your job this has got to be event you want to attend. Numerous individuals who were working in the Oil and gas industry have already been laid off due to lower oil prices and are in need of new positions. This Fair is advertised as Houston’s largest job fair.

 

NRG Center is an easy drive from Katy in non-rush traffic and certainly is doable if you need a job or a new job!

 

My advice is to show up dressed appropriately, have an excellent positive attitude, good copies of resumes readily available and be ready to interview on the spot.

 

Looking for a job is never easy and becomes or should become a full time job plus for anyone who is out of work. It is harder to look for  a new job than the effort expended when you already have a job!

Nutrition is so important for all of us. A nutrition class is a great starting point. Most Doctors in this country have never had a nutrition class. These days folks have to go to a nutrition specialist to obtain expert advice.

Cinco Ranch High School | Boys Soccer | Regional Quarterfinal Game

Cinco Ranch High School | Boys Soccer | Regional Quarterfinal Game



The Cinco Ranch High School Boys Soccer team will play tonight April 7, 2015 at Delmar Stadium in the UIL Texas State Championship Region 3 quarterfinal game versus Houston Math, Science & Tech. The game starts at 7 PM. The winner will move to on to play the winner of the Pasadena vs Alief Elsik game in the Region 3 Championship game.

 

Delmar Stadium is located at 1900 Magnum Houston , TX.

 

High School soccer is a huge deal for boys and girls in Katy TX and the whole state of Texas. High School teams dream of playing in the playoffs and winning a State championship.

Cinco ranch comes into this game with an undefeated season so far with its record at 20 wins zero losses and three draws. Houston Math, Science & tech record is 3 wins and 2 losses. Houston obviously plays a very short season of games.

 

I had a hard time finding any information about this game and some of what I found was incorrect. It would be wonderful if the Cinco Ranch Cougars can make it into the Regional Final and then on to the State Championship game. GO COUGARS! People in Katy should try to go to the game if possible to show local support of what is certainly an excellent team.
