5 Fixes That Can Raise Your Lapeer Home’s Value

For home owners looking to spruce up their home before listing it, there’s plenty they can do to attract more buyers and potentially boost the value of their Lapeer home too.

Veteran real estate professionals recently weighed in on some of the best home improvement projects they believe can help a home show better. Here are a few of their ideas:

1. Open up the space.

lapeer, homesCreate more space, whether that’s even removing a kitchen island or knocking out a non-structural wall. Right now buyers want a wide open floor plan, the living room right off the kitchen. They are into big spaces.

2. Light it up.

Keep the home bright: Have windows open to let the natural light flow in, consider lights that use motion detectors to turn themselves off, or install sun tubes, a reflective material that funnels natural light from a hole cut in a rooftop down through a ceiling fixture in a room. High wattage bulbs make small spaces feel larger, and soft lighting brings warmth to empty spaces.

3. Enhance the front door.

Don’t underestimate the power of a front door. People make up their minds in the first seven seconds of entering a house. Have an overhang on the front porch, such as an awning or portico above the front door.

4. Pay attention to the floors.

Spend some money on the floors. Even a $600 to $900 investment could help boost the home’s value by possibly $2,000, they say. Get a carpenter or handyman to eliminate distracting squeaks from floors, repair any broken tiles, patch damaged floor boards, and remove wall-to-wall carpeting, they suggest.

5. Tackle easy bathroom upgrades.

Bathroom upgrades can quickly get pricey but a few upgrades can still make a big difference. For example, swap frosted glass for clear glass, remove any rust stains, apply fresh caulk, update doorknobs and cabinet pulls, replace faucets, buy a new toilet seat, or install a low-flush toilet.

Lapeer Housing Affordability Is Improving, slightly

nearly one in five U.S. housing markets was not affordable by historic standards” …

Eighteen percent of U.S. housing markets were less affordable than normal in the second quarter of 2016. That’s down slightly from affordability levels a year ago, when 20 percent of markets exceeded their normal affordability levels according to RealtyTrac.

Their housing affordability index is based on the percentage of average wages required to make monthly house payments on a median-priced home with a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage and a 3

percent down payment (including property taxes and insurance).

Of the 417 counties they studied, 74 had an affordability index below 100 in the second quarter, which means buying a median-priced home was less affordable than the historically normal level for the county dating back to the first quarter of 2005.

“Although nearly one in five U.S. housing markets was not affordable by historic standards in the second quarter, the good news is that affordability is improving compared to a year ago in the majority of markets thanks to a combination of slowing home price appreciation and accelerating wage growth, along with falling interest rates,” says Daren Blomquist, senior vice president at RealtyTrac. “The average interest rate on a 30-year fixed rate mortgage is down 37 basis points from a year ago, while annual wage growth accelerated compared to a year ago in 72 percent of the markets we analyzed and annual home price growth slowed compared to a year ago in 68 percent of the markets, including bellwether markets such as Los Angeles County, Miami-Dade County, Brooklyn, Dallas County, and San Francisco County.”

In San Francisco County, for example, annual home price appreciation slowed to 2 percent in the second quarter compared to a whopping 21 percent in the second quarter of 2015, even while annual wage growth increased from 5 percent to 6 percent, Blomquist notes.

“Affordability constraints are beginning to rein in home price appreciation even while wage growth is gaining speed in an increasing number of markets,” Blomquist says.

The following markets are the most affordable by the absolute standard of percentage of wages needed to purchase a median-priced home, according to RealtyTrac’s report: Clayton County, Ga., in the Atlanta metro area (10.4 percent of average weekly wages to buy a median-priced home); Wayne County, Mich., in the Detroit metro area (10.9 percent); Baltimore City, Md. (11.6 percent); Bay County, Mich., in the Bay City metro area (12.3 percent); and Rock Island County, Ill. in the Davenport-Moline-Rock Island metro area (12.4 percent).

Credit Mistakes Potential Home Buyers In Lapeer Make

“Maintaining a strong credit score is one of the most important things potential buyers can do if they want to qualify for a mortgage” …

Maintaining a strong credit score is one of the most important things potential buyers can do if they want to qualify for a mortgage, since credit scores are used by lenders to measure financial health. A recent study showed that 34 percent of potential buyers believe their current score will hurt their future ability to purchase a home.

1. Don’t be late. Paying bills on time is essential, since a person’s payment history makes up 35 percent of the total credit score. A late bill payment of 30 to 60 days also gets reported to credit bureaus and stays on the credit report for a whopping seven years.

2. Applying for new credit. According the National Association of REALTORS®, applying and being approved for a new line of credit can cause concern with lenders who might take it as a sign that there’s a higher risk of default due to increased spending. Bottom line, if your potential buyers are planning to apply for a home loan in the near future, make sure they don’t apply for anything else around the same time, Yahoo! Finance warns. 

3. Having high balances. Just making minimum credit card payments isn’t good enough for most mortgage companies. People who hold high credit balances are not looked as favorable loan candidates since high balances and maxed out cards raises the debt-to-income ratio, according to lenders.

4. Too much disputing. While it’s a good idea to keep tabs on the credit report and dispute false charges, doing so too-often will be a red flag to lenders who may chalk it up to gaming the score instead.

5. Not having a credit history at all. Credit can’t be established if there’s none to begin with, so if your clients have a thin credit file, let them know they need to start building their history before applying for a home loan.
