Fear….

It’s amazing how crippling fear could be, and how “fear” could be the underlying motive driving our decisions.

I have a client who has viewed many (I think we’re up to 20) homes, and today I just realized why we do not have one under contract. FEAR.

I have shown everything on the “wish list”, intown- out of town, up and down, pools, facing North… flats.- You name it, and we have come -THIS- close to making offers…until we have a 3rd tour  of the  home. Right before signing on the dotted line, she finds something wrong, something unchangeable (the flow of the walls) to convince herself  “this is not my home”.

How do I help her overcome this? It’s funny, because I have lived in MANY homes-i would never have thought (from initial inspection) that they were “MY” home. It wasn’t until I put my stamp, MY love-and MY life in it that it transformed into MY home…but there is nothing I can say about the feng shui of a wall…

Just when you think being a Real Estate agent is only opening doors and wearing cute shoes…I must use some phycology and find out our stumbling block or we are just wasting time and turning down a lot of great homes!

Home Owner Satisfaction Remains High

Daily Real Estate News | Monday, January 23, 2012

Nearly three out of every four home owners say they are satisfied with their purchase – and the No. 1 reason for their satisfaction is pride they feel about owning a home, according to HomeGain’s 2012 National Home Ownership Survey.
In addition to pride, home owners also said they enjoy the freedom and control they have to make improvement and upgrades to their home.
Of the 1,400 home owners surveyed nationwide, satisfaction was found to be highest in the Northeast at 77 percent, followed by the Southeast at 73 percent, the West at 71 percent, and the Midwest at 68 percent.
“The HomeGain 2012 National Home Ownership satisfaction survey shows in spite of declines in the values of homes nationwide, satisfaction among home owners remains high at 72 percent,” said Louis Cammarosano, general manager of HomeGain.
Of the 28 percent of surveyed home owners who indicated they are dissatisfied, price depreciation was cited as the primary cause. Other reasons for their discontent include property taxes, homeowner association fees, and maintenance and repairs.
Noteworthy survey statistics:
  • Home owners who paid less than $75,000 for their home were the most satisfied at 77 percent.
  • Home owners who paid more than $800,000 were least satisfied at 69 percent.
  • Buyers who purchased a home via short sale had the highest satisfaction rate at 83 percent, followed by foreclosed home buyers at 79 percent.
  • New-home buyers had a satisfaction rate of 73 percent, and existing-home buyers had a satisfaction rate of 71 percent.
  • Home owners ages 55-65 were the most satisfied at 76 percent. Home owners between 18 and 25 had the lowest satisfaction rate at 45 percent.

Energy Saving Dishwasher Tips

Home Maintenance Tip- Dishwashers
Most of the energy used by a dishwasher is for heating water. The Energy Guide label attached to new dishwashers estimates the annual power needed to run the appliance and heat the water based on natural gas and electricity costs.Dishwasher Tips

  • Check the manual that came with your dishwasher for the manufacturer’s recommendations on water temperature; many have internal heating elements that allow you to set the water heater in your home to a lower temperature (120°F).
  • Scrape, don’t rinse, large food pieces and bones from dishes. Soaking or prewashing is generally only recommended in cases of burned-on or dried-on food.
  • Be sure your dishwasher is full, but not overloaded, when you run it.
  • Avoid using the “rinse & hold” on your machine for just a few soiled dishes. It uses 3 to 7 gallons of hot water for each load.
  • Let your dishes air dry; if you don’t have an automatic air-dry switch, turn the control knob to “off” after the final rinse and prop the door open slightly so the dishes will dry faster.

Long-Term Savings Tip

  • When shopping for a new dishwasher, look for the ENERGY STAR label to find a dishwasher that uses less water and 41% less energy than required by federal standards.
