Top 6 Home Organization Upgrades that "Spark Joy" for Flagstaff Home Buyers

Kelly Broaddus  |  eXp Realty  |  888.446.5602  | Contact Kelly

Top 6 Home Organization Upgrades that Spark Joy for Buyers

 

Thanks to Marie Kondo and her hit Netflix series “Tidying Up,” home organization is a hot topic right now. Marie encourages her viewers to minimize their possessions and keep only those items that “spark joy.”

 

With spring in full bloom, now is the perfect time to do some spring cleaning and add organizational systems to your Flagstaff home. Not only will you clear out clutter, but your efforts can also actually increase the value of your home.

 

Ready to give it a try? Here are six home organization ideas that will “spark joy” for you and your property value.

 

 

Boost Bathroom Storage Capacity

When was the last time you cleaned out your bathroom cupboards? If it’s been awhile, remove everything and take a look at each item. Toss any old or expired products—keep only what you actually use.

 

If your vanity has drawers, add drawer organizers, so you have a dedicated space for smaller items, like makeup and jewelry. For deep cabinets, install roll-out shelves or baskets to maximize the use of space.

 

And don’t forget about the walls! Mount open shelves to store towels. If you’re short on storage space, a cabinet over the toilet can offer additional room for supplies. These inexpensive additions can make your morning routine a little easier while giving your bathroom a more custom feel. And on average, minor bathroom remodeling projects like these see a 102% return at resale.1

 

 

Upgrade Your Laundry Room

Sort through the items in your laundry room and throw away or donate anything you no longer need or use. If you’ve been holding onto a collection of old washcloths and single socks, it’s time to say goodbye. Then give your laundry room an upgrade with some customized organizational features.

 

A mix of open cubbies and cabinets with doors will give you plenty of options for storing detergents and supplies. If you have space, a divided hamper or set of laundry baskets can provide a place to sort your clothes before washing. Install a hanging rod or drying rack for delicates and a flat work surface for ironing and folding clothes. With a few simple tweaks, you can turn this chore into a score!

 

Fully Utilize Your Basement or Attic

Basements and attics can easily become a dumping ground for clutter. If that’s the case in your home, you know what to do!

 

Once you’ve conducted a thorough clean out, think about how you can better utilize the space to meet your family’s needs. Install cabinets and a table so you can use the area as a craft room. Or you could turn it into a game room with a media center and ping-pong table. Investing in your basement will not only add function for your family, but also the average basement remodel can see up to a 70% return on investment when it’s time to sell.2

 

If you have an attic, consider adding a cedar closet to store your off-season clothing. The cedar lining will keep your clothes free from moths and smelling fresh year round.3 Turning your attic into a more usable space will pay off down the road, too. A finished attic sees an estimated 60% return on investment.2  

 

 

Customize Your Closets

Cleaning out the closet is a chore most of us dread, but by now, you’re a pro! Get rid the clothes and shoes that don’t fit you, are uncomfortable to wear, or that no longer “spark joy.”

 

Then it’s organizing time. So where do you start? You’ll want to create a designated space for each type of clothing: high hanging rods for dresses and long jackets, lower rods for skirts and shirts, and shelves for folded items like jeans. And accessories need a place to go, too. Add racks for your shoes, drawers for jewelry, hooks for hats, and shelves or racks for handbags.

 

A well-equipped closet can be a major draw for buyers—the average return on a closet remodel is 57%.4 But more importantly, it’ll improve your day-to-day life. Surveyed homeowners gave their closet remodel a “Joy Score” of 10 out of 10, higher than kitchen or bath upgrades.5

 

 

Install Built-in Bookcases and Cabinets

Built-in furniture adds functionality and storage to a room while giving your home a high-end look. Built-in bookcases can turn an empty room into an office. Custom cabinets can be used in a living room to display media equipment while providing hidden storage for DVDs, board games, and family albums.

 

When designing any built-in feature, remember not to go too custom. A design that only fits your tastes or belongings could turn off future buyers. Instead, select standard sizes and classic finishes to appeal to a broad range of buyers when it comes time to sell.

 

 

Equip Your Garage

If you can no longer fit your car in your garage, it may be time for a clean out. Similar to an attic or basement, the garage can quickly become overrun with clutter. A thorough cleaning will help you assess which items are worth keeping.

 

When adding organizational systems your garage, start with a small rack to store yard tools and larger racks for bikes and sports equipment. Overhead racks are a great place to put seasonal items and bulky luggage. A workbench against a wall lined with pegboard and hooks creates a dedicated space to use and store tools. If you have children or pets, add a cabinet with a lock. This will give you a place to securely store harsh chemicals and sharp tools. With a little effort, you’ll be pulling in your car (and buyers) in no time!

 March 2019 Flagstaff Home Sales

 

Flagstaff  2019 Spring Selling Season Slow Start

 

I hope that you’re enjoying the first full month of spring! Sales of Flagstaff homes continue to disappoint in March. There are reasons for optimism however as we head into the second quarter.

  1. Interest rates are now lower at 4.2% than last year at this time when rates were at 4.4%. 
  2. The stock market has fully recovered. The S&P 500 is at all time high while Nasdaq is up 23% this year. 401ks are looking much better.
  3. 23% Improvement in pending contracts.

Here are last months figures for Flagstaff.

FLAGSTAFF SINGLE FAMILY HOME SALES

US Existing Home Sales dropped 4.9% in March while Greater Flagstaff's March housing sales both the quarter and the month of March were down big. For the 1st quarter, there were a total of 152 sales, down 28% and for March there were 69 sales, down 24%. This sales drop could be attributed to an inventory shortage and not necessarily any lack of demand.  The Flagstaff 1st quarter home sales are historically the slowest of the year. 

Jan - declined 48% Feb - declined 6% March - declined 24%

The number of business days in a given month matter too. In March 2019, there are only 21 business days vs 22 in March 2018.

It was about business as usual for the Kelly Broaddus Team, with 3 buyers closing on their dream homes. 

 

FLAGSTAFF MEDIAN HOME PRICE

US Median home prices were up 3.8% over last March at $259,400. This marked the 85th consecutive month with year-over-year price gains. Meanwhile, March was basically flat in Flagstaff with a median sale price of $387,000.

Housing prices in the greater Flagstaff region did hit another new high. The median sale price for the 1st quarter came in at $401,250 up 6% from the same period in ’18. This is the highest quarterly median sale price ever and the very first time above $400K.

March 2019 Flagstaff Market Watch Summary

2019 Flagstaff Real Estate Market Watch Total Home Sales -   69 homes (SF), down 24% vs March 2018. 

Median Home Price -  $387,000 (SF), flat vs March 2018

Mortgage rates  - A 30 year fixed rate mortgage with 5% down and very good credit is now at an average of 4

Longest days on market (SF): 836 days. A 4 bedroom, 2,617 sqft home. Brand New single level construction in the heart of Continental Country Club. That's more than 3 years and 3 months, folks!

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 

It appears that the US spring buyer market is going to be stronger than many have projected. According to the National Association of Realtors’ Economists’ Outlook Blog, purchasing a home has become more affordable, which has led to increased demand.

 

“Due to the combination of falling home prices and mortgage rates, the income needed to make an affordable mortgage payment (mortgage no more than 25% of income) on a median-priced home with 10% down payment and 30-year fixed rate mortgage decreased from $60,425 in June 2018 to $53,783 as of February 2019, and the difference of $6,642 represents a gain in buying power because one can afford a home purchase at a lower level of income.”

 

Here's the low down in Flagstaff:

  • Home prices have NOT fallen. 1st quarter figures are up 6% vs last year. With demand for affordable Flagstaff homes still exceeding supply, we may not see home prices go down. 2018 was a record-setting year with housing prices hitting new highs, this year we are still expecting to see normal price appreciation.
  • Mortgage rates are once again on the rise after hitting a 12 month low. Our advice: Lock in the low rates while you can. If the lower rate environment persists, we are in for a great spring home buying season. Here's what you need to know about the mortgage process.
  • Supply of affordable homes is still low. Inventory levels are rising but we’re still at four months inventory at the under $500K price range, meaning we’re still in a sellers’ market.

Flagstaff Home Seller Advice 

Maybe you have outgrown your current house. Maybe you are wanting to be closer to family and friends. Maybe the Flagstaff home that you love is becoming a burden to clean now that the kids have moved out. 

Let's talk about pricing. Home prices are still up across the country and in Flagstaff based on first-quarter figures. There’s no depreciation projected by any of the major projectors or predictors of where prices are going to be going. We are going back to normal appreciation which is about 3.6 % (pre-bubble, country). If we look at the latest Case-Schiller projection below, Arizona will have a strong appreciation as like most states.

There are less than 2 months of inventory in the under $300K price range. It's a great time to sell if you have a starter home. If you’re thinking about selling now, let’s get started. From hiring the right real estate agent to handing over the keys, here is your step by step guide to the home selling process

Turn Key Vacation Rental in Kachina Village
5 Beds | 4 Bath |  2,236 sqft

It's no wonder that this vacation rental has stellar reviews on Airbnb, nor that it stays booked solid. Guests say that they love stargazing in the 6-person hot tub, lounging on the two covered decks, and cooking in the gourmet kitchen. They love the woodburning stove in the winter and the backyard firepit on crisp autumn evenings. There’s even a perfect sledding hill on the property where the kids love to play in the snow. You’ll love getting distracted by hummingbirds buzzing around as you sway in the breeze with a good book on the covered hammock deck. Control the entire house from your smartphone – dim all the lights to 10%, lock and unlock the doors, or adjust the thermostat. Even turn on the roof snow-melt system, all from the palm of your hand, whether you’re in the house, the hot tub, or 5,000 miles away. Artfully decorated and fully furnished, this turn-key vacation rental is a top performer with repeat customers. The house is brimming with upgrades like a Rinnai tankless water heater, EWS Spectrum whole house water filter and conditioner, whole-house surge protector, in-wall surround-sound, and a top-end ADT security system. Enjoy all four beautiful seasons in Flagstaff with 1,000 square feet of deck space! The “outdoor living room” deck is upstairs, and is covered. The downstairs “hammock deck” is also covered. The largest deck, the hot tub deck, is perfect for star gazing and sunbathing. There’s even a raised 60 square foot flowerbed/garden off one of the hot tub deck just waiting for someone with a green thumb to plant vegetables or flowers. The house is on nearly a half-acre of heavily treed land with a huge back yard.
