Incorporating new elements into existing homes...to get them sold

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with Alpine Lakes Real Estate Inc.,

Today's links will stimulate your creative juices with design ideas that are au currant today, and will be into the future.  Hopefully you will glean a few tips to use in conversations with your buyers and sellers...

  • Ways to incorporate "new-home-elements" into existing homes
  • The small appliance that delivers a deluxe message
  • Finding potential in a pocket-sized bathroom (think luxury all the way!)

 This is our third quarterly newsletter specifically for realtors.  If there are certain topics you would like to see in this newsletter, please contact me at crt@crtinteriors.com.  For the past 25 years I have worked very closely with the real estate community and have also sold real estate myself, so I do understand your needs.  Please call or email me if you have any questions about how we might work together.

Cost-effective and beautiful design trends that help differentiate the new and exciting from the tired and distressed.  While this article focuses on what builders are putting into NEW homes what I think is exciting is the way this article highlights what you and I can do with your clients to make the homes they are selling AND buying work for today's lifestyles.

This New York Times column goes over the pros, cons and additional options to consider when it comes to home wine refrigerators.  Appliance size, placement and the variety of beverages to store and serve are addressed.  In most cases it would be "...a positive addition..." (The NYTimes offers a combination of free and fee viewing.)

 

While luxury, spa-licious bathrooms are "all the rage" they are definitely not the norm, especially in smaller and average homes.  And even in homes with an over-sized bathroom there if often one or more smaller baths... this article includes useful "talking points" for selling a home with a smaller bath including ease of remodeling!   Click to read a few "cons" and many "pros" for the small bathroom.

 

 

 

I hope you enjoyed this month design & real estate colaberation....Randy Trainor & Steve Loynd

Winston...that is a great way to incorporate a design element...I refer to that as "make do decorating".

I am going to throw out a compact bathroom faux pas which has me perplexed.  I have found three new construction luxury homes with door swings which are inhibited by either vanities or commodes to open fully.  Most customers are not contortionists and would have difficulty maneuvering in these cramped quarters.  Somewhat like:  Step right, spin, bend, step left, bend, pirouette, sit!

Kevin...We have tackled a few reno jobs where we had to install a pocket door, or buy a new door kit and have it swing out instead of in.

When we remodeled in '95, we used pocket doors in several places to utilize the space better.
