How can a real estate agent actually affect the value of your home?
Well, how an agent presents and markets your home affects how a potential buyer perceives its value. If you were to advertise your for-sale home as For Sale By Owner, buyers would think that they’d get a discount on your home; selling on your own means you typically won’t get top dollar compared to what you could get with a strong agent.
"Buyers are going to choose the listing that gives them a better feel and experience."
Here’s an example to help explain what I mean. Suppose I had two $20 bills—one was crisp and smooth, and the other one was crumpled and dirty looking. Which one would you choose? They’re worth the same amount and you can use them for the same things. But one of them fits in your wallet be ...

Many buyers in today’s market are wondering how they can afford homes when prices are going up so much. One thing to consider is that there is a difference between the price of the home and the actual cost of the purchase.

As you’ll see in the chart at 0:27 in the video above, the cost of owning a home has been going down or staying stagnant because interest rates have been very low. People in today’s market wish they could go back in time to purchase a home at a lower price than what it currently is, but our low interest rates actually provide the opportunity to buy a home for the same cost it would have been just a couple of years ago.

Simply put, our low interest rates have made buying homes more affordable. But why are rates this low?

The government has been printing money, and they ...

What are some great improvements to make to your bathroom? The first step is to look at the major issues that buyers will notice immediately. Then you can move on to other projects that add value.
1. Replace carpeted flooring. Carpet stands out—people don’t want carpet to get wet and end up moldy. Builders put carpet in because it’s cheap, but you should install another type of flooring such as tile.

2. Expand shower space. Large showers are very popular, and bathtubs are not as desirable right now. Though some people feel a tub is a must-have, generally you get more value from having a larger shower rather than a shower/tub combo.

3. Change the wall surroundings in the shower. Marble is fairly standard, but putting in tile or another upgraded material is preferred.

4. Shower extr ...

Today I’m coming to you from one of our home projects to show you some examples of ways to increase value in your kitchen with simple updates. You can see before-and-after photos of the project in the video above.
1. Expand. At the house in question, we weren’t able to knock out walls in the galley kitchen, which is very narrow. However, if you can open up your kitchen and connect it more to the family and/or great room, it will add quite a bit of value.

2. Updating the countertops and cabinets. These are a bit more expensive to change, but replacing outdated items in these areas can give your kitchen more value. Cabinet hardware is a good, low-cost way to boost value, as well.

3. Upgrade your lighting. Simply switching your light bulbs to LEDs can better illuminate the kitchen, making it look bright ...

Are you looking to buy a nice, custom, or semi-custom home but you’ve found that prices seem a bit out of reach? There are two strategies I’ve learned from millionaires that will allow you to get the home of your dreams:
1. Buy a smaller, more affordable home now. Once you’ve bought a more affordable home, you can make improvements to it, pay down the principal, and watch the value increase over time. Once your equity has grown, you can then sell the home in the future, using your equity as a down payment to buy a new one.


2. Buy a second property that will earn you money by renting it out. By renting out a second property, you can put away a certain portion of the rent collected each month and then apply that toward the down payment on the home of your dreams. If you also choose to rent out ...
