10 Steps for an Easy Move

by Kathy and Michael Rain - The Rain Team

By Michelle Huffman, Monday, 6 February 2017 - 1:51pm

An efficient, well-managed move not only saves you time and money, but it also can make the transition to your new home easier and more pleasant for your family. That’s why the Council of Residential Specialists offers these proven tips to help make your move a trouble-free experience from start to finish:

1. Set a Budget. Early in the process, determine how much you want to spend to relocate your belongings, then stick to your budget. A CRS REALTOR® can provide you with an overview to help you anticipate what tasks and expenses you’ll need to take into account.

2. Hire movers. Find a reliable moving company as soon as you know you’ll be moving. (Your REALTOR® can suggest one, or check for favorable reviews online.) Be clear about your needs and expectations, and be sure you understand the company’s policies and any possible charges before signing a contract. Also, be sure to compare prices among 2–3 different companies.

3. Take care of the details. Arrange for utilities—phone, electric, internet—to be shut off or transferred to your new home. Contact your bank, credit card issuers and any company that regularly mails you an invoice to inform them of your new address. Complete a change-of-address kit at the post office (also available online).

4. Make a packing list. Go room to room and make an inventory list. Organize it first by room, then by type of item (i.e., furniture, linens, packable items, fragile items and valuables). Once you have a comprehensive list, use highlighters to color-code all items into three categories: keep, sell or give away.

5. Get rid of everything you don’t want or need. Once you’ve sorted your list, identify the items you plan to sell or give away. If some of the give-away items are large, arrange to have a local charity pick them up from your home. For the items you plan to sell, hold a small garage sale, or post the items to eBay or Craigslist.

6. Pack your remaining belongings in an orderly fashion. Get a head start by first boxing things you use less often, such as off-season clothing, extra linens, tchotchkes or electronics. Clearly label the outside of each box with its contents and the room where it will go in the new house. Pack fragile items carefully and separately using plenty of packing paper (unprinted newsprint), and write FRAGILE in large, legible letters on all sides of the box. Liquids and medicines should be sealed in leak-proof containers.

7. Plan to transport valuables yourself. Movers will be responsible for almost everything, but you should personally move hard-to-replace or valuable items, including computers, electronic components, jewelry and art, as well as pets and plants.

8. Prep your new home. If at all possible, go to your new home before moving day to clean and make sure the necessary utilities have been turned on. Plan out exactly where your furniture should go.

9. Make life as easy as possible for the movers. Show the movers which items you want loaded last (and therefore unloaded first). Have as many items as possible ready to go—this should be close to everything in your home. After they’ve finished unloading your belongings on the other end, assess whether there’s any damage. If there is, be sure it’s noted in writing before the movers leave and before you sign anything. Also, have a cash tip ready for each mover.

10. Donate canned goods and food items so that you don’t have to move them. Organizations like Move for Hunger can help you clear out your pantry while also helping those in need. Move for Hunger works with a network of about 650 moving companies to deliver unwanted canned goods to local food pantries. Or, if you’re looking for a local food bank, visit Feeding America’s website (www.feedingamerica.org) for a zip code-searchable list of food pantries.

March Home Maintenance Tasks Every Homeowner Needs To Know About

by Kathy and Michael Rain - The Rain Team

Warmer air and longer days are just around the corner. If you are suffering from spring fever, get your home in shape today so when the longer days of spring arrive you can spend them with friends and family outdoors and not making repairs to your home.

 

Here are 5 home maintenance tasks every homeowner needs to do this March.

 

1. Gutter Maintenance

We all know that “April showers bring May flowers,” and you can have your home ready by doing gutter maintenance this month. Start by removing all debris that may have accumulated inside your gutters such as leaves, small sticks, and even pine needles.  If you don’t remove the debris it will cause your gutters to overflow during rain storms as well as blocking your downspouts.  As a result of this, you may end up with foundation issues or damaged siding.  If you’re not a fan of this home maintenance task consider installing gutter guards, which provide a barrier and prevent debris from accumulating in your gutters.

2. Yard Maintenance

March is the month to focus on maintenance of your yard and to start bringing your lawn back to its healthy luster.  After the recent rain storms we have had your lawn may have downed branches. Now is the time to remove any branches as well as leaves from your lawn. If you have roses, experts say now is the time to prune them before awake from dormancy. Examine your rose bush for healthiness and cut off any buds that show signs of disease before it spreads to other areas.

3. Deck Maintenance

Spring is all about enjoying the outdoors with family and friends. If you plan on entertaining this spring you want your deck to look its best.  Give your deck a thorough cleaning and be sure to clean between each board to prevent rotting. If you notice any loose boards or missing nails, replace them.

4. Window Maintenance

Your home’s windows may have taken a beating after the recent heavy rainstorms we experienced.  Inspect the caulking around each of the windows in your home and replace any missing caulk to prevent water from finding its way into your home.  Use a caulk that is designed especially for exterior use and is of high-quality to prevent having to replace it yearly.

5. Roof Maintenance

Carefully examine your home’s roof and look for any shingles that may be missing or loose. Also look for any flashing that may be worn or rusted. If you notice these things, they will need to be replaced before water finds its way into your home. If you’re not up to tackling this home maintenance task yourself you can have a roofing contractor inspect the roof for you. Many roofers will do so free of charge.

California Dominates Top-Performing Housing Markets List

by Kathy and Michael Rain - The Rain Team

San Francisco, San Jose, and Sacramento were among the nation’s top-performing housing markets in January, according to an analysis by realtor.com®.

The same analysis by realtor.com® revealed that homes were selling 4 percent faster nationwide than they did a year earlier, but housing supply hit new lows. Prices, meanwhile, remained at record highs. While nearly 360,000 new listings entered the market in January, inventory was down by 11 percent from a year ago, reports realtor.com®.

“We saw evidence of a stronger-than-normal off-season starting last September and October due to pent-up demand and surging interest from first-time buyers,” says Chief Economist Jonathan Smoke of realtor.com®. “The downside to this strong off-season is that we have started 2017 with a new low volume of available homes for sale and a new high for prices.”

Low inventory has been a challenging factor in parts of Northern California, particularly the San Francisco Bay Area. In fact, even though realtor.com® highlighted several markets in the region as top-performing in January, the California Association of REALTORS® cited the scarce housing supply as a key reason for the decline in the Bay Area’s pending home sales in December.

While pending home sales were on the rise throughout most of California in December, pending home sales in the San Francisco Bay Area as a whole fell 14.2 percent compared to December 2015 and 32.5 percent from November 2015.

San Mateo County posted the steepest decline in December at 35.3 percent, followed by San Francisco County at 23.3 percent. Meanwhile, Santa Clara County experienced an 18.6 percent decline in pending home sales.

Projections of mortgage rate increases in upcoming months are creating a sense of urgency among buyers, according to housing experts, which means that buyers will be scrambling to see new listings.

Despite the fact that fewer homes were available for sale, realtor.com® identified the following 20 top-performing markets in January, based on where buyers were checking out the most listings and homes were selling briskly:

1. San Francisco, Calif.
2. San Jose, Calif.
3. Vallejo, Calif.
4. Dallas, Texas
5. San Diego, Calif.
6. Sacramento, Calif.
7. Yuba City, Calif.
8. Denver, Colo.
9. Stockton, Calif.
10. Fresno, Calif.
11. Oxnard, Calif.
12. Columbus, Ohio
13. Colorado Springs, Colo.
14. Nashville, Tenn.
15. Detroit, Mich.
16. Modesto, Calif.
17. Los Angeles, Calif.
18. Tampa, Fla.
19. Santa Rosa, Calif.
20. Fort Wayne, Ind.

 

Here’s what was happening in our local Northern California offices during the last two weeks of January:

East Bay – There has not been a significant spike in listing inventory in the East Bay. The lack of inventory has led to multiple offer situations in some parts of the region.  A property in Oakland attracted 36 offers, while another listing received 26 offers, reports the Oakland office manager. Buyers are still flooding open houses, added the Oakland manager, and the Danville manager shared that it seems like buyers “are at the starting line waiting for the shot of inventory.” Meanwhile, there was strong and consistent growth in the area’s housing market in 2016 in comparison to 2015, according to the Berkeley manager. Median selling prices for properties increased year-over-year by double-digit percentages in several communities. Alameda’s single-family median home price jumped from $865,000 to $950,000, representing a nearly 10 percent increase, while the median condo price increased 11 percent from $600,000 to $667,500. Oakland’s single-family median home price jumped approximately 10 percent from $615,000 to $675,000, and the median condo price increased 15 percent from $482,000 to $555,000. Emeryville also saw a significant year-over-year increase in its median home price, going from $455,000 to $500,000, which represents an almost 10 percent increase. The median sales price for single-family homes in Berkeley grew approximately 8 percent from $1,025,000 to $1,105,000, while the median condo price leaped 14.5 percent from $585,000 to $670,000.  Albany’s single-family median home price increased from $875,000 to $925,000 and the condo median selling price inched up from $447,500 to $455,000. El Cerrito saw a smaller increase overall from $745,000 to $788,000. The condo sample size was only 23 sales in all of 2016, with a slight reduction in value from $518,000 to $500,000. Finally, Richmond’s single-family median home price rose from $400,000 to $440,000 and the median condo price increased from $355,000 to $397,000.

Monterey County – January started out a little slow in the region with the weather affecting listing activity. Rain delayed outdoor photo shoots for listings, and when the rain finally subsided the new listings started emerging. In January, the Monterey Peninsula offices saw several days with five to eight new listings coming online. Buyers are at a standstill if the property seems to be overpriced; they are not submitting any offers until there is a price adjustment, explained the manager of the Monterey Peninsula offices. The region is looking forward to the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am, which kicks off February 6, and the exposure that it brings to the Monterey Peninsula.

North Bay – Overall, the North Bay region is dealing with a lack of listing inventory, which is leading to multiple offer situations. Marin County had 40 properties under $1 million listed for sale and 140 listings priced above $1 million. The Greenbrae office manager reports that most of the new listings in the office in the last two weeks received multiple offers included one property listed at $699,000 that drew 16 offers, and a fixer-upper priced at $1,195,000 that received seven offers. Buyers are having to pay substantially over the list price in the low inventory market, the Greenbrae office manager shared. In a similar fashion, the Novato office manager said a property in Bel Marin Keys garnered 16 offers, and he said some listings are expected to hit the market this month and in March. The supply of inventory averaged about two months in 2016, according to the Santa Rosa Bicentennial office manager. “We anticipate more new homes coming on the market this year, but not enough to make a sizable change in inventory,” he said. The Sebastopol market currently has 25 properties for sale, and the heavy rainfall delayed work to get properties ready for sale, according to the Sebastopol manager.  The Santa Rosa Mission office manager said inventory was down about 16 percent for the time period October 2016 – December 2016 compared to 2015, and closed units are down 11 percent for the same period. The Southern Marin office has three listings priced over $5 million that have not been posted on the MLS, but all three properties are already getting qualified showings, and two of the three homes have attracted offers.

Placer County – As in other regions, Placer County is in need of listings as sales activity is on the rise. Homes priced in the low $400,00s or less are receiving multiple offers within a couple of days of being on the market, explained the Auburn office manager. Appraisals are taking time, and there are still properties that are being appraised for less than that contract price, she said. “We are still having a higher number than usual of cancellations,” noted the Auburn manager.

Sacramento County – The region is dealing with a low number of listings and is facing strong buyer demand for properties priced under $350,000. The Elk Grove/South County market had 1.2 months of inventory, down 27 percent for the same period a year ago, according to the Elk Grove/West Sacramento office manager. The average sales price in that area climbed to more than $400,000, due in part to two $2 million-plus property sales. The average listing price is growing, making it more challenging for buyers to find properties priced under $300,000 and thus creating strong competition for homes priced in the $275,000 to $350,000 price range. Many properties in that price range are generating multiple offers. Sales prices have increased more than 7 percent over the last 12 months. The region is also seeing new home developments. West Sacramento is experiencing similar market trends, with a decline in inventory and few homes available under the $300,000 price range. Prices have increased more than 8 percent year-over-year and price per square foot has increased to its highest level in a decade, the Elk Grove/West Sacramento office manager pointed out.

San Francisco – Demand for homes in the San Francisco market remained strong but inventory is not keeping up, leading to buyer competition and multiple offers. The San Francisco Lakeside office manager notes, “There is virtually nothing available to buy,” while the Lombard office manager said inventory is growing but not at the rate expected.  Entry-level and fixer uppers are drawing a lot of buyer traffic, multiple offers, and offers above asking price, according to the Lombard office manager, but the condo market is cooling as evidenced by the price reductions, the growing supply and days on market.

SF Peninsula – Some areas in the region are seeing an uptick in sales activity. The Burlingame, Burlingame North and Half Moon Bay offices reported an increase in sales activity during the last two weeks, with the Burlingame offices noting an increase in listing inventory as well. There were 10 properties under contract in the Burlingame office, seven in Burlingame North, and eight in Half Moon Bay. The Palo Alto Downtown office reported a drop in sales activity and inventory, and had three properties under contract.

Santa Cruz County – Sales activity is picking up in the Santa Cruz market. There have been approximately three new single-family homes listed per day, but brisk sales activity is absorbing the inventory. There are fewer than 200 active listings, according to the manager of the Santa Cruz offices. A number of high-end properties received offers over the last two weeks, and pending sales in the luxury market are on the rise.

Silicon Valley – More listings are emerging in the region, but Santa Clara County is still facing a shortage of available homes and strong buyer demand, which in some cases is leading to bidding wars. Open houses drew “hundreds of visitors” in the last two weeks, reports the Cupertino office manager. All offers ratified over the past two weeks have been multiple offers and all deals have contingencies in place, according to the San Jose Almaden office manager. Prices were up in several communities in January compared to the same month in 2016, he noted. Almaden’s average sales price was $1,329,000 in January, which was up 12 percent from January 2016 and down 3 percent from December.  Blossom Valley’s average sales price followed a similar trend. The average sales price in that community was $708,000 in January, which is up 10.5 percent from January 2016 and down 9 percent from the prior month.  In contrast, Cambrian’s average sales price declined 10.5 percent from a year ago to $916,000 and was down 6 percent from December.  Santa Teresa’s average sales price rose 11 percent year-over-year to $759,000 in January and was also 2 percent higher than the average sales price recorded in December. Most homes are going into contract after just one weekend on the market and in some areas homes are selling well over 10 percent of asking list price, says the San Jose Willow Glen office manager. Despite the strong demand and brisk activity, “Sellers still need to be careful not to overprice as we see homes that are priced above market sit idle as more competitively priced homes are seeing all the action,” explained the San Jose Main office manager.

South County — The real estate market in Santa Clara’s South County continues to be very slow, challenged by low inventory. Presently in the entire city of Morgan Hill, there are only 35 active listings.  The city of Gilroy has about 60 homes available. Both buyers and sales associates are finding this to be “frustrating and somewhat alarming,” shares the Gilroy and Morgan Hill office manager. Sellers are in an advantageous position to list their homes in coming weeks.

Home Sellers, Buyers: Start Planning Now

by Kathy and Michael Rain - The Rain Team

For homeowners who are considering selling their homes, it is not too early to start preparing for the spring selling season, which is traditionally the real estate industry’s busiest season.

Whether you’re thinking of putting your home on the market or planning to buy a home, right now may be the ideal time to meet with a real estate professional who understands the market to discuss your options.

For home sellers in particular, there is much to prepare for, and a real estate professional can help you prioritize and establish a plan of action. A strategic sales and marketing plan is essential to engage active buyers. That plan should include an effective pricing strategy, home presentation suggestions and a comprehensive approach to online marketing.

A competitive market analysis that includes a review of current inventory, recent comparable sales prices and other data is critical information that a real estate licensee can provide. In addition to providing valuable marketing data, a knowledgeable sales associate can also make recommendations on how to prepare your home for maximum appeal and to better position your property on leading real estate websites and portals in the industry. Below are a few practical tips:

As a seller, focus on curb appeal: The outside of a house is the first thing potential buyers see and it is important to make a good first impression. If the “curb appeal” is strong, people will want to see what is inside. To improve a home’s appearance, consider mowing the lawn, trimming the trees, cutting back overgrowth and possibly adding some pots or containers of colorful plants and flowers. Also, properly store away gardening equipment, bicycles and other toys.  The front door should have a “welcome home” feeling so consider adding a fresh coat of paint on the front door — it can work wonders on making that good first impression.

Remove the clutter: Homebuyers tend to show less interest in an untidy home. The two most important rooms in a buyer’s mind are the kitchen and bathrooms. Make certain these rooms are sparkling clean and show well.  If necessary, re-caulk tubs, showers and sinks. It is also helpful to clear out overflowing closets and avoid displaying too many family collectibles and photos.  Consider renting a storage unit to store some furniture to free up space in other living areas of the home. Buyers need to imagine themselves living in the home.  By neatly displaying and making all available space accessible, the seller affords the buyer a suitable opportunity to look towards the future.

Make repairs: Homebuyers generally expect all features in a home to operate safely and efficiently.   It may be beneficial to repair any faulty or outdated electrical outlets and wiring, furnaces and water heaters, along with leaking roofs and other plumbing concerns, prior to putting a house on the market.   Potential buyers may also react negatively to holes in window screens, broken windows and burned-out light bulbs.

Minimize odors: Make sure to take out the trash, change the cat’s litter box frequently, and open the windows to eliminate cooking odors. Another helpful tip is to clean drapes and bathe pets. It is important that the home smells nicely and you should consider adding fresh flowers, scented candles, or freshly baked cookies which can help create a pleasant environment.

Work with your Sales Associate:  Being objective about your environment is not always easy and you should utilize your real estate sales professional to gain an independent determination of what actions you should consider to make your home more appealing. Sales associates have the experience and knowledge to help identify potential problem areas and/or suggest some modifications that can help attract more potential buyers.

Preparation for Buyers Homebuyers have to do their homework as well and obtaining financing is generally a major priority. With limited inventory on the market in most areas, those buyers who come to the negotiating table pre-approved and ready to make an offer are likely to have stronger bargaining power.

We can walk you through the home-buying process and help you identify homes for sale that are in your price range. We can help you research the markets you are interested in, prepare and present offers, negotiate price and other terms and then close the transaction.Contact us today.
