Moving to a new space is an exciting time, but it can also be overwhelming. Today, Dani Hallsellfrom Stevens Worldwide Van Lines is here with some professional moving tips to help make packing less stressful. She talks about 5 Tips to Save Money When Packing Yourself in the video.

 

With more than 110 years of moving experience, Stevens Worldwide Van Lines has a complete list of packing tips and best practices. Here are their top five to save you money and time:

1. Gather your supplies. You’ll need boxes, newsprint, bubble wrap, scissors, tape, and pens.
2. Use packing tape to seal the seams on the bottom of the box. You should also add some tape perpendicularly across the box for extra support. Remember to fill the boxes completely to keep them from collapsing. Pack heavy items in smaller boxes in order to avoid straining your back.
3. Prepare for the move early. Start assembling moving boxes. Place them around the house to help you remember to pack a little bit every day.
4. Set one box aside for donations. Use this time to determine what you’ll take with you and what you will give away.
5. Make sure your valuables are securely wrapped. If you can feel the items through the cushion wrapping, you will need more protection.

 

Start packing early!

 

Furthermore, follow these Five Packing Tips to Save Money and your home will be securely packed up in no time.

In addition, if you have any other questions about packing for Dani, you can give her a call at (517) 614-8037 or email her at Dani.Hallsell@StevensWorldwide.com. As always, if you have any real estate questions, please reach out to us. Each person on Toth Team Worldwide Network is here to serve and we are happy to help you!

Is it time to sell your home? Are you on the fence about selling your home? There are five easy signs to know when the time is right:

 

1. You’ve outgrown the space. If multiple kids are constantly fighting over the bathroom or have to share a room, you know you’ve got a problem.

2. Your neighborhood is booming. This means your home and its price range are in high demand. It might be time to sell to take advantage of a higher-priced home and tap into the savings on the price tag.

3. You’re letting things go. If your home needs improvement and the yard work just isn’t as much fun anymore, it might be time to transition into a low-maintenance situation so you can enjoy your weekends and travel more.

4. Your equity is back. If you tried to sell a while ago but the sale didn’t happen, it might be time to call us so we can re-evaluate your home value.

5. You’ve undergone a substantial life change. Maybe your family is growing or shrinking. Maybe you’ve lost your job, got a new job, or decided to retire. In any case, a new lifestyle needs a new crib to go along with it.

 

These signs will let you know it’s time for a change.

 

Consequently, if you’re thinking about selling your home, please don’t hesitate to contact us. In real estate, it’s all about the preparation, and we do that better than anyone. We look forward to hearing from you!

 

What Thermal Imaging Can Tell You About a Home

Thermal Imaging Home Inspection
Thermal Imaging Home Inspection reveals wiring issue

 

Today we’d like to answer a question asked by Amanda at our home buyer seminar about Thermal Imaging Home Inspection.  Amanda asked us, “When hiring a home inspection company, should you ask if they use a thermographic camera?”  

Because thermographic imaging camera costs have decreased recently, some home inspectors have begun using thermographic cameras to find issues that would be otherwise undetectable to the naked eye. Thermal imaging cameras can detect potential moisture, electric, and energy issues inside the home.

Thermal imaging cameras have been well-established as valuable inspection tools that can help reveal missing insulation, HVAC airflow and equipment issues, as well as radiant heating malfunctions, compromised roofing, and much more.

By detecting patterns and sources of heat loss, thermal imaging provides convincing evidence reports where improvements need to be made and will also clearly show how well those improvements have been completed.

In the video above, you can see the thermal imaging home inspection camera in action. It shows temperature changes that indicate a leak in a wall and even electrical issues inside the home being inspected.

Whether you hire a home inspector as part of the buyer inspection or a seller hires the home inspector before listing as part of a certified pre-owned program, always ask what the inspection includes. For example, one inspector told another Realtor’s client in the middle of the inspection that they did not test gas fireplaces. Everybody wished they would have known that before the inspection. As is true with most things, it’s the questions that you do not know to ask that will hurt you the most.

When you’re thinking about ordering a home inspection, be sure to ask your Realtor.  The Real Estate agent can connect you with a local, reputable company so that you know what you’re getting from them.  Interview them about Thermal Imaging Home Inspection, etc.  If you have any other questions about the home inspection process or anything else related to real estate in our area, give us a call or send us an email. We are here to serve and are happy to help you!

My Home Didn’t Sell. Now What?

My Home Didn’t Sell. Now What? If your home’s listing on the MLS has expired, you may be wondering which steps you should take next. You have three options to consider: relist right away, relist in the near future, or decide not to sell.

Those who decide to hire the same agent they used in the past can likely expect the same results as before. If you’re considering hiring a new agent, we always recommend interviewing a few different ones before making a decision. This will help you pinpoint what went wrong previously.

Success in selling your home is based on the home’s location, its price, and the condition of it as well as the market and the agent you select to sell it. After all, it’s the agent, not the company, who sells your house. So we address: My Home Didn’t Sell. Now What?

Hire an agent with a large buyer network who can attract buyers to the property. When deciding who to hire, ask the agent to show you their network of prospective buyers. Hire an agent based on their marketing strategy, marketing results, and ability to track global buyers to generate results.

Many clients say that they hire us based on our referrals, five-star online reviews, community and education videos, after watching us on House Hunters, or after hearing us on TV or radio. Other things to look for in agents are specialization in global promotion and luxury international marketing (we translate ads for your home into 19 native languages), as well as the implementation of modern technology to attract buyers. You’ll also want to find an agent with a great inside sales department; for example, we have a staff of client relationship associates whose only job is to find qualified buyers.

You wouldn’t want a general practitioner to operate on your kidney, would you? No, you would want to hire a kidney specialist. Be sure that the agent you hire fits your exact needs.

If you’d like any assistance finding an agent that specializes in your needs, please reach out to us by phone or email. We would love to hear from you!
