3 Tips for the Final Stage of a Home Remodel from a Phoenix, AZ Realtor 🌵

Many phases of a home remodel are fun and challenging but none will test you more than the two-thirds mark.  Two thirds of the way through the job, the light at the end of the tunnel is visible and the finish is near… or is it?  

 

Once through demolition, framing, electrical, plumbing, flooring, paint, and tile it starts to feel like you are ready for professional photos, a party or movers.  It’s time for final checklists, final touches and blue tape markings for paint and cosmetic repairs but then reality emerges. The list starts growing quickly and that finish line becomes foggy and descends further away.   

 

Detail is everything, especially in a competitive market, and cutting corners at this stage only diminishes the quality materials used and the brand you stand behind.  Oh, don’t get me wrong, that path of least resistance is so tempting when it's 10pm and I am on a ladder troubleshooting a can light that is not working. It always happens when I’m getting down from that ladder, exhausted, I catch a glimpse of some cabinet hardware that was not installed evenly.  Ugh! That bothers me more than a loud chewer!

 

At this point it can be very easy to slip into a negative mindset and start dwelling on things like holding costs, additional material costs and market changes.  For a one-man show this phase is most definitely a beast. Finish work is tedious and testing and being at the end of a project has an almost supernatural cursing feel that will really get to you if you let it.  This is where most people will fail, whether it be as an investment or a personal home.

 

Any corners cut will rear their ugly head...trust me on this one!  It’s never at an opportune time, like during the inspection or appraisal period when under contract for sale or during the family vacation.

 

The silver lining to this, I believe, is that this is the phase that allows you to grow in many ways.  Take the time to not only correct but reflect on why or how things were missed, inefficient or why delays were caused.  Always have clear communication and expectations set with any contractors or hired help and never attempt to motivate negatively.  This will just push the finish line further and reduce morale. It’s very important to always remember that it’s the small details that define you and your product.  Don’t let laziness be that final impression. Remodel on!

 

So, let’s recap on the 3 tips in the final stages of a home remodel:

 

  1. Pay attention to detail and stay the course.  Do not cut corners!

  2. Keep a positive mindset.  Any focus on negativity will only prolong the job.  

  3. Reflect and assess your process each time to become more effective and efficient. Communicate clearly and set clear expectations with contractors and hired help.

Rates vs Rent

Inventory levels remain low in the Valley of the Sun not only for homes for sale but for homes for rent too.  The lack of homes available for rent is causing rental rates to soar, surpassing what mortgage payments would be for the purchase of a comparable home.  The small increase in mortgage interest rates that we have experienced so far this year isn't having a huge impact on consumption at the moment.  The market is HOT!  

Scared of buying but the rental prices are starting to scare you more?  Call or text Katie at 480.250.0023 to discuss current market conditions and how they affect you.

I can't recommend Katie Lambert and Team EVO enough. Katie and her team made the process of selling our home as stress free as possible. Katie kept us in the loop every step of the way. The team took care of everything for us, including state of the art photos, help with staging, etc. I wish I was able to give a higher number than 5 out of 5 because I'm 110% beyond satisfied with their service and professionalism!

Katie & Jen (JD!) have been a dream to work with, from the beginning of selling our home, to the continuing process of building our empty nester home. I honestly can't say enough good things about them, and we couldn't have gotten through these months so far without their hard work, attention to detail, and support.

Katie was hands down the best realtor we’ve ever worked with! She was detail oriented and went up and above to ensure we got top dollar for our house. Katie had a solid marketing plan for our house and it sold within 3 weeks during the holidays! We were extremely impressed by the swiftness of this process, even with it being one of the ‘slowest’ times of year. Without a doubt, I would highly recommend using her and her teams services!

I had an albatross that had been around my neck for some time and was unable to offload it. Finally called on Katie who was able to get me enough offers in 48 hours that we had to stop accepting them! Less than 3 weeks later the deal closed and I am out from under that property! Couldn't believe how quickly things progressed and that anyone would have wanted my investor special. Everyone on the Team Evo team was very friendly and available to answer my questions.

Thanks Team Evo!!!

Real Estate Appreciation Rates for the Phoenix area for 2017

Yep, the overall inventory levels are still incredibly low and it's causing Realtors to have to look to other sources of property for droves of hungry buyers AND unassuming sellers are being taken advantage of by investors and real estate investment companies that are trying to stock up on inventory before our actual busy season (April through June) hits.  

HINT: If the deal seems to good to be true from one of these investors or real estate companies that "buy for cash and close when you want" then it probably is or there's a reason behind it that you aren't aware of...like your home is worth WAY more than you think.

Keep in mind that we have four "markets" here in the Phoenix area....the under $200k market, the $200-$500k market, the $500k to $1M and then above $1M.  Supply and demand is different in all four of these markets.  Sales under $200k were 33% of sales in our area in 2017 so keep in mind that has a large impact on the overall average.  Ask your trusted real estate advisor what the stats are for your particular area and price range so you remain competitive prior to listing your home for sale. 

Appreciation rates are as follows:

Under $200k 7.7%

$200k - $500k: 3.5%

$500k - $1M: 1.7%

Over $1M: 0.1%

Now let's talk mortgage interest rates. 

Yep, they've gone up.  This past week the 10-year Treasury note hit the highest level in three years which basically means higher mortgage rates.  They are currently over 4%.  Keep in mind that from 2003 to 2011 the rates averaged between 5-6% and we have basically been spoiled since then.  Typically rates are lowered to spark the housing market and, based on the info above, we can see that it worked 😊 The good news is it's still very affordable to purchase a home and live here in AZ as compared to many other areas that are this desirable to live.
