The Catch All Room – Is it Your Challenge to an Edmonton Home Sale?

Sunday, February 17th, 2013

What do we do with a Catch All Room?

Catch All Room Before - Cats Meow at Remax Real Estate

Is this a Challenge to the Sale of Your Home? A photo showing a “Catch All” room before alterations.

 by The Cats Meow at Remax Real Estate – Jeanine Boutet 780 916 9739 – chat@edmontonrealestatesells.com

When Selling Your Home, Each Room Needs A Clearly Defined Purpose. Why?

 The Challenge to a Sale: a room filled with furniture, electronic and office equipment, storage items, paintings, silk plants, etc. household items that are wanted but not used and kept out of the line of sight until the room is opened.  The room does not show well, or shows its dimensions and “feels” cramped, like a “whirlwind” or unusable as a functional family living space.

 Only 10% of buyers can visualize the potential of a space.  If you have a room that is not clearly defined with a specific purpose, buyers are left with an uneasy “Hmm, I don’t get this room.  I wonder what it is.”  They don’t see any value in that space for them and their family!

You are selling square feet.  If you have a catch all room it will give buyers a sense that there is not enough space in the home you are selling.  Buyers will not see value in a space that feels small.  They want to believe they are buying more space for their family.  A family that quite possibly is in a space they are quickly growing out of.

Even worse yet, the clutter feels like discontent.  Buyers want to believe that when the buy your home they are bettering their lives, moving up, beginning a fresh new life in a home that will provide for all their needs.   Clutter creates the opposite feeling, even when it is neat and organized.

The Solution: What do we do with a Catch All Room?

Catch all Room after modifications

The Catch All room after modifications, note the window coverings, flooring, wall colors and trim have not been touched. Even the main furniture in the room remains.

1.  We clear the clutter.

2.  We open up the space.

3.  We stage the room giving it purpose and creating a lifestyle!

What does this achieve?

1.  It shows the 90% of the population the value of this space.  How it could function for the buyers and their family.

2.  It shows buyers just how large the room really is!  What are buyers buying?  They are buying Square footage, space, architectural details and the character of your home.

3.  It shows buyers a sense of lifestyle!  What do buyers want to believe?  That if they move into this house, they will become healthier, have a place for the family to get closer, and that they can entertain overnight guests,… if they want to!

So my suggestion is, to get the top dollar for the sale of one of your properties, make sure each room that serves a main purpose looks that way.  Get rid of the clutter, show the dimensions and show that it is easy to live there. Now that’s the Cats Meow in Real Estate.

KITTY BITS – January 2013 Edmonton MLS Activity

Kitty Bits  January 2013 Realtors MLS Acitivty in Edmonton

Edmonton Realtors MLS Acitivty Summary for January 2013 – brought to you by Kitty Bits and The CATS MEOW at Re/Max Real Estate.

Here we are in the dead of winter.  Mother nature is taking a break from pollenating flowers in our province and instead she’s filling our mountain peaks and city streets with the blessed white stuff that keeps our water cycle in harmony.  Last week in Edmonton we saw lows in the weather of a freezing Minus 27 degrees (even colder if you count the windchill factor.) Yet with all that cold and snow and with buyers still trying to recover from their Christmas credit card bills we still saw movement in our market.  A little lower than the averages for our province and country, but movement none the less.

THE PRICE RANGE THE MOST HOMES SOLD IN:

$250,000-$299,999 – 140

$200,000-249,999 – 102

$10,000-$99,999 – 96

 

The KITTY BITS above shows some of the more important numbers like

How many homes sold in January in Edmonton.  How many Condos sold in January in Edmonton. How many homes sold over $1 Million?  How many homes are active on the market today?  How many Condos are active on the market today?

What the chart doesn’t show you is that we are deprived of houses to sell.  Normally agents will have quite a few listings at their fingertips to advertize and get SOLD yet we’re all searching for more.  There are about 1000 less properies to sell than normal.  So if you’ve been thinking of selling, in Edmonton, my advice is simple. DON’T WAIT TIL THE SPRING – LIKE EVERYONE ELSE IS.

We need great homes to sell and we need them now.  Our shortage is your benefit.  In the spring, when the saturation hits, prices will go down and so will your profits.  And we all like the word profit, now that’s the Cats Meow in Real Estate.

2012 SOLD Edmonton Real Estate Market Summary-KITTY BITS brought to you by The CATS MEOW in Re/Max Real Estate

More numbers.  It seems that these days all we get to know are the numbers, but they can be so important, can’t they?  Have you ever visited the Canadian Real Estate Associations National Average Price Map?  It shows us exaclty how we are doing with comparison to our sisterly provinces. Which one surprised me the most?  LOL

THE NORTHWEST TERRITORIES.

British Columbia 2012 average sales price of house: $498,205,

Alberta  2012 average sales price of house: $363,340, Edmonton 2012 average sales price of house

Saskatchewan 2012 average sales price of house: $284,346,

Manitoba 2012 average sales price of house $249,852,

 

The KITTY BITS above shows some of the more important numbers like

MLS sales in 2012, the average days on market for listings, the average sales price of houses and condos, and just how many homes sold over that lovely $1 Million dollar mark.

The Canadian Real Estate Market Predicitions 2013 – Kitty Bits

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

So all the numbers are in and we have some excellent indications of what will be happening in the Real Estate Market across Canada. The picture below shows some of the more important numbers and as you will find out in later posts, the numbers in Alberta come in just the same as we are seeing across Canada.  I absolutley love that there is an almost neutral belief in rising housing values.  As you will find out in later posts, Alberta is leading the way with a higher percentage.

Kitty Bits and the Canadian Real Estate Market 2013

Predictions for the Real Estate Market in Canada 2013

So in our chart you saw:

  • the Predicted price increase in housing values,
  • Who are the most serious planners and buyers across canada, what is their demographic
  • What percentage of real estate buyers can afford a 20% down payment or more,
  • How much of Canada in percentage believes housing values are going to rise and
  • What is the intended spending average for real estate and Canadians this year.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post of Kitty Bits and hope to see you back again real soon, now that would be the Cats Meow.

Come and Find us at The Edmonton Pet Expo this weekend…

Friday, January 18th, 2013

This weekend, January 19 & 20, 2013, Edmonton and the City of Edmonton will host the annual Edmonton Pet Expo in the Expo Center of Northlands.

I hear that Buttercup can handle the board and for an English Bulldog, that is some fancy paw action.

Dockdogs however has really caught my attention.  For those of you that know me well, I have a dockcat; Sailor.  I have seen her jump into the pacific northwest and hang out, swim with the seals, and hop back onto the floating thumbs.  Should be a show worth catching.

Wiener races, Understanding Dog Body Language, Dog Sports and Flyball, Zero Gravity Disc Dog and Petting Zoo with Pony Rides. ( I sure hope there is a baby kangaroo)

Saturday 10-6 and Sunday 10-5

Be sure to pick up winters copy of Edmonton Pet Connect and check out our ad on the Services Page.
