5 Tips for Attracting Buyers on Virtual Tours During COVID-19

 

Over the last few months, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has altered the real estate landscape — here in Northern Arizona, across the country, and globally — in unprecedented ways. Although social distancing and stay-at-home mandates may have snagged your home selling plans, there’s still a light at the end of the tunnel. Thanks to technology enabling virtual tours, and other digital experiences, you can still show your home to potential buyers and sell it. But how do you attract buyers through a screen, and from afar? Whether you need to sell your home urgently or have time, let’s explore five home-staging tips during coronavirus to help you effectively show off your home on a virtual tour. 

 

1. Aim for cleanliness
 

Just because you’re selling your house virtually doesn’t mean you can go easy on how well you clean it. As buyers tour your home, make sure they’re not distracted by stained windows, streaked mirrors, and dusty counters, among other no-nos. After the first round of cleaning, look up and around at places you may have missed and address them if you can. Then, you and your agent can arrange a virtual tour company to come to your house to arrange a 360-degree experience.

 

2. Declutter and minimize 

 

You want buyers to picture themselves living in your house, so remove distracting or irrelevant items that don’t add to the appeal. Anything that evokes too much personalization — like photo frames, posters, or other decorative knick-knacks — should go. But this doesn’t mean your house needs to be empty or lifeless. By decluttering and minimizing, you can stage furniture and complementary accents — like pillows, curtains, and rugs — strategically, which can elevate your rooms’ appearance. Ready to give it a try? Here are six home organization ideas that will “spark joy” for you and your property value:

3. Embrace natural light

 

Nothing is more attractive than natural light when creating a camera-ready atmosphere. Whether it’s photo, video, or 3D virtual technology, capturing your house on a beautiful sunny day can make it appear larger and more inviting to buyers. If you still think some parts of a room feel drab after opening the curtains or blinds, feel free to turn on several lamps to create a cozy, yet airy, space. Just try not to rely completely on artificial light when getting ready to stage your house for a virtual tour. You’ll create a better impression if you choose a time of day that offers an abundance of natural light.

 

4. Highlight special features

 

Maybe you have a finished basement in your house that looks like it could be a bedroom. Or maybe you have an inviting porch you’ve gotten countless compliments on over the years. Whatever the case, think about the areas that first stood out to you when you bought your house. Showcase those special features, showing various sides, perspectives, and close-ups, in the virtual tour to pique the interest of buyers.

 

5. Opt for neutral paint

 

Do you have any walls in your house that are bright, dark, or scuffed? Consider repainting them a neutral color like off-white. Just like natural light, a neutral color will do wonders in creating a large, airy environment that buyers can picture themselves living in. This is especially important in a virtual tour, as buyers are not physically present and cannot experience the house fully. If you can create as much openness as possible on camera, your house will come across as more inviting.

 

Staging your home to be camera-ready takes some strategy. Fortunately, these are easy steps you can take to effectively prepare your house to sell on a virtual tour. Use your time quarantined at home as an opportunity to make some small adjustments that go a long way.

20 Ways to Save Money and Stretch Your Household Budget

Kelly Broaddus  |  eXp Realty  |  888.446.5602  |  Contact Kelly

20 Ways to Save Money and Stretch Your Household Budget

 

These days, it seems like everyone’s looking for ways to cut costs and stretch their income further. Fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take to reduce your household expenses without making radical changes to your standard of living. When combined, these small adjustments can add up to significant savings each month.

Here are 20 things you can start doing today to lower your bills, secure better deals, and begin working toward your financial goals.

 

  1. Refinance Your Mortgage - For prime borrowers, mortgage rates are at or near historic lows. Depending on your current mortgage rate and the terms you choose, refinancing could save you a sizable amount on your monthly payments. There are fees and closing costs associated with refinancing, so you’ll need to talk to your lender to find out if refinancing is a good option for you. 

 

  1. Evaluate Your Insurance Policies - If it’s been a while since you priced home or auto insurance, it may be worthwhile to do some comparison shopping. Get quotes from at least three insurers or independent agents. Try bundling your policies to see if there’s a discount. And inquire about raising your deductible, which should lower your premium.1

 

  1. Bundle Cable, Phone, and Internet - You can also save money by bundling your cable, phone, and internet services together. Shop around to see who is willing to give you the best deal. If switching is too much of a hassle, ask your current provider to match or beat their competitor’s offer.

 

  1. Better Yet, Cut the Cord on Cable - In many cases, you can save even more if you cancel your cable subscription altogether. An antenna should give you access to the major stations, and many of your favorite shows are probably available on-demand through a less expensive streaming service subscription.

 

  1. Revisit Your Wireless Plan - You can often save by switching from a big brand to an independent, low-cost carrier. If that’s not feasible, ask your current provider for a better deal or consider downgrading to a cheaper plan.

 

  1. Adjust Your Thermostat - Turning your thermostat up or down a few degrees can have a noticeable impact on your monthly heating and cooling costs. To maximize efficiency, change your filters regularly, and make sure your windows and doors are well insulated.

 

  1. Use Less Hot Water - After heating and cooling, hot water accounts for the second-largest energy expense in most homes.2 To cut back, repair any leaks or dripping faucets, install low-flow fixtures, only run your dishwasher when full, and wash clothes in cold water when possible.

 

  1. Lower Overall Water Consumption - To decrease your water usage, take shorter showers, and turn off the sink while you brush your teeth and wash your hands. If you don’t have a low-flow toilet, retrofit your current one with a toilet tank bank or fill cycle diverter. And irrigate your lawn in the morning or evening to minimize evaporation.3

 

  1. Conserve Electricity - Save electricity by shutting off your computer at night and installing energy-efficient LED light bulbs. You can minimize standby or “vampire” power drain by utilizing power strips and unplugging idle appliances.4

 

  1. Purchase a Home Warranty - While there is an upfront cost, a home warranty can provide some protection and peace of mind when it comes to unexpected home repair costs. Most plans provide coverage for major systems (like electrical, plumbing, and HVAC) and appliances (such as your dishwasher, stove, or refrigerator).

 

  1. Outsource Less - From lawn care to grocery shopping to minor home repairs, we pay people to do a lot of things our parents and grandparents did themselves. To save money, try cutting back on the frequency of these services or taking some of them on yourself.

 

  1. Prepare Your Own Meals - It costs nearly five times more to have a meal delivered than it does to cook it at home.5 And home cooking doesn’t just save money; it’s healthier, cuts down on calorie consumption, and can offer a fun activity for families to do together.

 

  1. Plan Your Menu in Advance - Meal planning is deciding before you shop what you and your family will eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It can help you lower your overall food bill, eliminate waste, and minimize impulse purchases. When possible, buy produce that is in season, and utilize nutrient-rich but inexpensive protein sources like eggs, beans, ground turkey, and canned tuna.

 

  1. Plant a Garden - You can save even more on produce by growing it yourself. If you have space in your yard, start-up costs are relatively minimal. Gardening can be a rewarding and enjoyable (not to mention delicious) hobby for the whole family. And it could save you around $600 per year at the grocery store!6

 

  1. Review Memberships and Subscriptions - Are you paying for services and subscriptions you no longer need, want, or can utilize? Determine if there are any that you should suspend or cancel.

 

  1. Give Homemade Gifts - Who wouldn’t appreciate a scratch birthday cake or tin of cookies? And if you enjoy crafting, Pinterest and Instagram are full of inspiring ideas. Show your recipient how much you care with a homemade gift from the heart.

 

  1. Minimize Your Debt Payments - The best way to reduce a debt payment is to pay down the balance. But if that’s not an option right now, try to negotiate a better interest rate. If you have a good credit score, you may be able to qualify for a balance transfer to a 0% or low-interest rate credit card. Keep in mind, the rate may expire after a certain period—so be sure to read the fine print.

 

  1. Get a Cash-back Credit Card - If you regularly pay your credit card balance in full, a cash-back credit card can be a good way to earn a little money back each month. However, they often come with high-interest rates and fees if you carry a balance. Commit to only using it for purchases you can afford.

 

  1. Ask for Deals and Discounts - It may feel awkward at first, but becoming a master haggler can save you a lot of money. Many companies are willing to negotiate under the right circumstances. Always inquire about special promotions or incentives. See if they are able to price match (or beat) their competitors. And if an item is slightly defective or nearing its expiration date, ask for a discount.

Track Your Household Budget

 

  1. Track Your Household Budget - One of the most effective ways to reduce household expenses is to set a budget—and stick to it. A budget can help you see where your money is going and identify areas where you can cut back. By setting reasonable limits, you’ll be able to reach your financial goals faster.

Flagstaff AZ Real Estate Market Update- March 2020

Flagstaff AZ Real Estate Market Data Provided by The Kelly Broaddus Real Estate Advisors Team / by Joselyn Uy

 

March 2020 Flagstaff Market Report

 

Flagstaff 's 1st Quarter Home Sales Hit New Highs, Despite Expected Decline Due to COVID-19

 

We hope you and your family are well and safe. As the bleak headlines about the economy continue to roll in, there is still one silver lining: Mortgage rates are still extremely low. We are also happy to report that Greater Flagstaff Housing Market shows signs of insulation to volatility and uncertainty due to coronavirus outbreak by lack of inventory at the lower price points. Here's the latest update on the Flagstaff housing market.

 

FLAGSTAFF HOME SALES

The US existing home sales dropped 8.5% from February but sales increased year-over-year for the ninth straight month, up 0.8% from a year ago.  Meanwhile, Greater Flagstaff's housing sales rose 24.5% with 132 units sold from 106 units in February 2020 according to data compiled from the Northern Arizona Multiple Listing Service (NAAR).  Looking at year-over-year figures, Flagstaff home sales remain robust. See the breakdown below.

March 2020 Flagstaff Home Sales By Type

 

FIRST QUARTER 2020 HOME SALES HIT NEW HIGHS

The 1st quarter home sales are historically the slowest of the year. First-quarter 2020 home sales in the greater Flagstaff region hit a new quarterly high. There were a total of 351 homes sold up 49% from a year ago, when there were 244, and the most ever for the first quarter.

March signal the start of the spring homebuying season and despite COVID-19 people are still buying homes in Flagstaff. The demand for affordable homes is still high and luxury/vacation/second home buyers are still looking. The Kelly Broaddus Team still posted our best March sales in value with 5 homes sold valued at around $1.8M

 

FLAGSTAFF MEDIAN HOME PRICE

Flagstaff Median Home Price & DOM March 2020

March housing prices for the greater Flagstaff hit a new monthly high with the median sales price coming in at $419,500.

Due to COVID-19, “More temporary interruptions to home sales should be expected in the next couple of months, though home prices will still likely rise.” NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun.

March 2020 Flagstaff Market Watch Summary

2020 Flagstaff Real Estate Market Watch Total Single Family Home Sales -   91 homes, up 31% vs March 2019. 

Median Home Price -  $419,500, up 8.4vs March 2019

Mortgage rates  - A 30 year fixed rate mortgage with 5% down and very good credit averaged 3.7% 

Longest days on market (SF): 575 Upgraded Creekside home located near the park in Pine Canyon, a stunning, 600+ acre private golf community offering sophisticated amenities & impressive facilities!

 

CDOM The acronym CDOM (Cumulative Days on Market) is used by the Flagstaff MLS to describe how many days a property has been available for sale. A property has to be off the MLS for at least 90 days for the CDOM to restart, even if it is listed by a different agent. We report the average days on market for properties sold based on CDOM.

The number of days a home sits on the market can tell us a lot about pricing. A high CDOM is commonly a strong indicator that the home is overpriced.

Flagstaff Home Buyer Advice 

Last month, two of our buyers decided to cancel their contract because of COVID-19. The first buyer was buying his second home but due to business closures, his income and ability to close on the home were affected and he decided to terminate the deal. The second buyer terminated his purchase of a luxury home since he cannot release funds on closing and the sellers chose not to extend the closing date.

Some buyers are holding off purchasing because of the economic shutdown, job layoffs, and the massive drop in the stock market.  Some are hoping for major price reductions because the health crisis is straining the economy. Some buyers are eager to buy now more than ever. That might sound surprising, but it's simple economics.

The 30-year fixed mortgage rate recently hit 3.29%, the lowest on record since tracking started almost 50 years ago. This kind of low mortgage rate can take tens of thousands of dollars off the effective price of a property, once interest payments are factored into the equation.

If you are ready to buy your dream Flagstaff home now, take advantage of the low mortgage rate and diminished homebuyer interest - which means less competition for you. Here is what you need to know about the mortgage process.

Homeownership

INVENTORY

In residential real estate, how many items are available in relation to how many consumers want to buy that item is called months supply of inventory. A normal market would have 6-7 months of inventory. Anything over seven months would be considered a buyers’ market, with downward pressure on prices. Anything under six months would indicate a sellers’ market, which would put upward pressure on prices.

It's a seller's market for Flagstaff homes under $600,000 however the market favors buyers in the higher price ranges. Inventory level is rising which is normal for this time of year. That's great news for buyers who are desperately looking for a new home. Currently, inventory has improved vs last month.

Flagstaff Home Seller Advice 

A new study shows that people selling their houses today are holding strong on price. According to the most recent data from NAR’s Economic Pulse Flash Survey, 74% of real estate agents noted that sellers are not dropping listing prices to attract more buyers.

Lawrence Yun, the Chief Economist at NAR, has pointed out that we entered the current crisis with a housing market that faced a significant inventory shortage. He also says, “With the current quarantine recommendations in place, fewer sellers are listing homes, which will limit buyer choices.”

With buyer choices already limited going into this season, and more sellers removing listings today, if you’ve been thinking about listing your house, it’s a great time to do so. Selling now may help your listing rise to the top of the pool. Call me today to make sure you have the expert help you need to succeed in the selling process.

A Note of Encouragement for Parents Home-Schooling During Quarantine

Today I’m sharing my experience with home schooling as well as a special offer I’m extending to first responders. 

 

As a single mother supporting five children under the age of 13, I faced many trials, not the least of which was home schooling; back then, we lived in an area where the schools were particularly difficult, and none of my children liked attending whatsoever. It was a challenge for them to convince me to home-school them (a whole different story for a different time), but I ultimately did choose to bring them home and teach them myself. 

 

There are a lot of important details in this story, but I wanted to share the outcome: My children ended up making it just fine. One is a graduate student at Northern Arizona University, another earned his finance degree and works for me, and another teaches violin and art. 

 

The bottom line: When it comes to home-schooling your children, really loving them and doing the best you can is enough. You don’t need to stress about whether or not you’re doing it right, or if you should do more—just being there for them and doing the basic things is very powerful. In a future video, I might delve into the specific things that we did together; it’s a pretty remarkable story, and my kids are pretty remarkable people if I do say so myself. 

 

 

"Despite everything that’s happening, there are still a lot of opportunities out there."

 

 

Two of them are educators. Hannah, the violin and art teacher, is making her courses available online during this time of quarantine. Here’s what I’m excited to offer: Any first responders who sign their child up for art, violin, or guitar lessons with Hannah, I want to contribute half of that month’s lesson cost. Rebecca, the NAU graduate student who studies music performance, is teaching piano online right now. My offer applies to her lessons as well. 

 

First responders include nurses, doctors, firefighters, EMTs, police officers, etc. If you’re not a first responder but still want your kids to have some kind of lessons, give me a call, find me on Facebook, or send an email—I’d be thrilled to get you hooked up!

 

As always, reach out with any real estate-related questions; I’m here for you, ready to help in any way I can.
