Lansing MI and Dewitt Michigan Real Estate: Bathroom Renovation Upgrades for Home Owners

Are you a Lansing MI or Dewitt Michigan resident or first time home buyer? Are you thinking of renovating or remolding your house before you move in or after you buy? You can benefit by knowing a few hacks, tricks and tips on how to upgrade your small half bathroom upstairs or downstairs. You may choose to install a new toilet but its not necessary especially if you plan to resell. Three quick tips include changing the flooring to vinyl, linoleum or hardwood floors. You can find inexpensive flooring costs at Menard's or Lowe's. Second, replace the trim and molding with a brand new color. Trim and molding are not expensive and are quick ways to make a house look clean, modern and updated. Again, this is especially significant if you plan to sell the house to prospective buyers. Third, paint the room. Fresh paint adds a nice feature and "feel" to the home. Go with neutral tones like brown, tan, beige, or gray. Stay away from neon colors or bright red, blue or green. Click here to view quick tips and trick on cost effective bathrooms and how to stay within budget.

Cost Effective Bathroom Remodeling and Renovation Ideas for Dewitt MI and Lansing Michigan Home Owners

Is it time to remodel your shower from the 1970's and install a modern approach? Gutting, ripping and doing the demo work can be fun but a lot of work. If you are afraid to remove the wiring or plumbing yourself then consider hiring a licensed professional in Lansing Michigan, Grand Ledge, Holt Okemos MI or Saint Johns area who works for him/herself instead of hiring a company to do the job where the project may cost triple. Hiring one person to do the job can keep your bathroom under $10,000 whereas McDaniels Home Renovation may cost you up to $25,00 due to re-framing and pushing out walls. Labor costs are much more expensive when companies have to hire multiple people. Also, you may feel more comfortable only having one stranger in your home, rather than 10. This is especially important if you have pets or children. You need to understand that materials and supplies can still be expensive but you can keep the project within a reasonable budget by ordering in stock flooring, tile, sinks, toilets or vanities at the local Lansing Menard's or Lowe's on Saginaw Hwy or Cedar Street. In the pictures below, this is an example of a 1970s bathroom being converted into a modern tiled shower with new toilet and double vanity sink, the wall has also been pushed out to increase the size of the bathroom. Thanks to HomeAdvisors.com, Dallas Cole has provided excellent work to this bathroom and is recommended as one of the top licensed and insured handyman in Dewitt Michigan. Are you a first time home buyer? Here's a few tips before remodeling.

5 First Time Home Buyer Tips and Advice from Previous HomeOwners in Lansing Michigan and Dewitt MI

Are you moving to Lansing MI, Okemos, Dewitt, Grand Ledge, or Holt Michigan? Are you and your fiance or husband ready to buy a house? As a first time home buyer, there's many things that you want to consider before you purchase. Here's a top 5 list of suggestions and advice from previous sellers and homeowners. First, write a list of everything you want in your new home. For example, how many bedrooms would you like? How many full or half bathrooms? How much square footage do you want for you? Remember to look ahead into the the future. so if you plan on having kids, you may want a bigger house with three bedrooms. How about a finished basement? Open floor plan or open concept? Large kitchen with an island or bar? What school district? Is it important to have a front porch or a back deck with a staircase? Do you need a fenced backyard for pets or children? Once you have your list, decide which items are top priority or most important. This will come in handy in case you fall in love with a house that only has 4 out of 5 things on your list. Ask yourself, "What can you live without? What items on my list am I willing to sacrifice?" Two, attend open houses. Why should I? Because there's no pressure from anyone to buy. All you have to do is show up, grab a flyer, walk around the house and then leave. Sometimes neighbors come by to check out the house and this is a great time to ask them questions about the community, neighborhood. Three, be honest with your REMAX Real Estate Agent up front. Ask questions, tell them what type of home or condo you want. Don't expect the realtor to "guess" what kind of house you want. They can't read your mind. Be patient with your realtor. If you have questions about a particular property, your realtor will get you the answer to you but it may take a day or two. What you may not realize is that your realtor communicates with the listing agent (the agent who listed the house for sale) and if they don't have your answer yet, it's because they haven't heard back yet from the listing agent. Four, schedule home tours a few at one time. In other words, when you tell your realtor which homes you want to see, then your realtor will schedule an appointment for you to tour the homes. But it's very important to remember to keep it to a minimum of 4 houses or less in one night. Touring more than 3 or 4 homes at one time can be overwhelming and stressful. Five, be prepared for the unexpected. For example, if you put an offer on a house that you absolutely love, and it's a good deal, then chances are another prospective buyer has also placed a bid on that house as well. Do not be disappointed if your offer is rejected or someone else gets the house. Believe in coincidence and faith. Your perfect house is still waiting for you . . .

Lansing Michigan HomeOwner Tips: 3 Reasons to Consider Before You Buy a House in Foreclosure

When you and your family buy a house in Lansing Michigan, you have choices to consider such as the neighborhood, community, schools, whether or not you want to live in a suburb, rural or countryside. You may want to think about owning a condo, duplex, townhome, or simply a residential single family home. What's best for your children? To help you get started on the right track, you should get familiar with the process buying a house: What is the Process of Buying a House? Before you purchase, meet with your Dewitt MI REMAX Realtor to find out if the property is a REO or foreclosure. If it is, then you need to understand that this can be a lengthy, challenging and frustrating process. So ask yourself, "Should I buy a foreclosed house?" "Is this right for me?" Here's 3 top questions to think about: First, are you financially prepared, can you afford it? There are many surprising costs involved when buying a foreclosure. For example, you may find huge repairs, lots of vandalism and damage to the property as a result of neglect and missing kitchen appliances. You may have to pay possible liens against the property or unpaid taxes from former homeowners and other unexpected twists. Second, who is going to repair or fix the place? Are you hiring a renovation company and if so, are you comfortable living in the home while workers come and go throughout the day? Keep in mind the project could take up to 6 months or longer, can you wait or will you be stressed? Third, what is your timeline on buying a house? Are you willing to wait for paperwork to get filed? Foreclosure homes for sale can take up to a year before the closing date. So if you make an offer then you may not hear from the bank until 3 months later.

Selling Your House? Best Pros and Cons of Having an Open House in Lansing Michigan

Once you decide to put your house on the market in Lansing Michigan, our Dewitt MI REMAX real estate agents can guide you the rest of the way. One important factor to consider is whether you decide to have an open house. There are many advantages to having an open house sign in your neighborhood. Although you might see nosy neighbors at the open house who are not serious buyers, think about this: they might be able to provide positive insight into the neighborhood or community in case buyers have questions that the realtor cannot answer. In addition, prospective buyers, couples or families have the ability to tour your house without feeling pressured into buying it or putting an offer on the table. This gives families time to walk through the home, ask questions, and browse. This is especially useful if a family is unable to schedule a showing earlier in the week, so having an open house is a great way for them to see the home on the weekend, making it very convenient. Second, since realtors often place open house signs at least a week in advance, potential drivers passing by the home may be interested in the upcoming weekend event. Having yard signs in front of your house helps attract buyers and additional advertising. Third, both the realtor and seller are able to receive 'real time' feedback by asking buyers their opinion on what they thought of the home. Talk to your realtor to decide what is best for you.
